My Fake Plastic Love

I went to the Radiohead concert last night, and it was as awesome as I had hoped. I mean, come on, it's Radiohead.

I have literally never seen that many people in one place, so it was super crowded. I have also never seen that much tie dye, dread locks, and Birkenstocks in one place.

The funniest moment of the night was when my boyfriend asked me what that smell was, and I realized just how different our adolescences had been if he didn't even recognize the smell of pot.

The highlight of the evening was "Fake Plastic Trees" for me, because that's probably my favorite Radiohead song.

My only point of contention is that the venue is a large amphitheater. There is limited seating under a roof, but most people are in the lawn seats. There are huge screens on the roof so the people in the lawn can see the stage. Last night, however, the message printed on the screen was "Per the artists request, the screens will not be on tonight." I've never been to a concert there where they didn't have the screens on. It kind of sucked because you can't see the stage at all from the lawn.

So I got to listen to a great concert, but not see it.

I haven't smoked in like a decade and I still remember the smell. I miss concerts...I haven't been since Foo/Weezer.
