So yesterday, I’m chilling here at work doing my thing, and Emily IMs me and says have fun at the concert. I’m thinking ‘the concert isn’t until saturday … [?]’ … well … it turns out that the concert was last night, and not saturday. So I rang up Tony and met up over at his place and then headed to Denver.
Showed up right at 8, parked, and stood in line for 20 minutes waiting to get in. Not as bad as the Sasha & Digweed willcall line, but still annoying. Got in, and it was bumpin. It was a completely different crowd than the S&D concert here in the springs :: Much more nightclub-ish, zero rave-ish. There were a *TON* of older & married couples there, which was a little freaky. Anywho, the music was decent — I think Oakenfold is overrated; he didn’t seem to have any insane abilities, and he didn’t mix anything that didn’t sound out-of-this-world spectacular. His style of tek is way, way different than Sasha & Digweed’s: a *whole bunch* of melody on top of a medium bassbeat. Different strokes, different folks. I had a good time, and I would definitely go again.
At the concert, Tony found Laura and her crew from CU. That was pretty cool. She brought along Matt Hix, Brook, Garret [sp?] and Jeanne McCartney. It was hella weird seeing Jeanne there — I don’t picture her at this kind of event at all; she said the same thing about me, though, so I guess we all have hidden goodness 🙂 After the concert was over, we met up at the Denver Diner and chilled out till ~ 1:15, in which time I noticed that A) Matt isn’t so bad [;-)] B) Garret is quite smart and C) our waitress had a very annoying laugh 😛 I think everybody had a good time. Got home and passed out around 3:30, then woke up at 7 to pick up Ben Chapin [Denver Steve’s brother] and take him to school because he had no other ride. So, here’s me on little sleep. Here’s to a good day 😀
Update: My left ankle is tender again [sigh], and my back is sore. Also, just found out that the tentative xmas plans in Utah are 12/15 to 01/03 … two and a half weeks? No fucking way — Especially not with a web.dev contract in there.
