Well I got this sick shirt last night
They had a longsleeve, a windbreaker, several shirts, and Sister Cities on vinyl from what I remember. Two of the shirts are Halloween themed - one was maroon and a rip of the Limp Bizkit logo, and the other was the skeleton Hank one.
Had a fun time in Detroit last night! It was a good size venue for what it was, and both Homesafe and Future Teens' sets were really good. Homesafe's Weezer set was very surprising. TWY's Limp Bizkit set I'm going to treasure forever. I had such a fun fucking time during that and the crowd went OFF.
The crowd tonight fucking suckeddddddd. I almost got in an actual fistfight with a couple of drunk crowdkillers, completely ruined the whole night for me.
Never would've thought seeing anyone do a Limp Bizkit cover set would be so much fun, but they nailed it all the way down last night.
Future Teens and TWY were so great last night. Probably the best I’ve heard both of them sound.
The crowd was very bad though, like @natefoundglory said. One person even tried climbing on top of me while Future Teens played “So What” and ended up kicking a girl in the head. So dumb.
I will say, there’s a night and day difference between how TWY and Future Teens addressed crowd issues versus how Homesafe did. Amy and Soupy actually addressing specific people in the crowd to ask if they were okay was really nice to see. Homesafe’s “just don’t fight each other” felt kind of hollow when people were actually getting hurt.
Even someone of the venue staff or The Wonder Years staff came out of nowhere and stage dive and jumped over some girls that were in the front row. That was one of the time when Dan asked to all of them if they were fine
Yeah, I saw that too. Not sure who it was either (probably a guest of someone - I doubt any of the TWY crew or venue staff would do that). Nick had the most disgusted look on his face after it happened.
Detroit's crowd was awful too. As soon as the Limp Bizkit set started a drunk guy elbowed my wife on the top of the head and later the same guy fell and almost ripped her arm off. We were standing all the way to one side of the venue by the bar too. I really don't get why people like this don't just go in the pit area.
The woman in front of us also wore a backpack with a bunch of these long spike things on it.
We stood in the same spot at this venue for Senses Fail two weeks ago with no issues, pop punk crowds really do suck lol. We still managed to have a pretty good time at least though!
Sucks that so many people had crowd issues, I didn’t really experience that in Pittsburgh. There were these two dudes very early on who were clearly intoxicated on something other than alcohol and falling all over each other, they were making me really nervous at first. But they got escorted out by security by the time the Weezer set was happening.
I wonder if the sold out shows (will) have friendlier crowds, cuz the people there will be fans of the bands rather than guys that just wanted to drink and tagged along with a friend?
The Chicago show was sold out, so I’m guessing not really.
Yeah Detroit and Chicago crowds were both not great :/
TWY sounded great though. Enjoyed the cover set despite not really knowing any limp bizkit lol. Very happy about the return of
woke up older
I wasn't able to go last night but reading about the crowd issues...that does suck. However, I don't think people tweeting for everyone to just stop going to shows there or tweeting how the Metro is a garbage venue is productive in any way (I literally saw people tweeting those things). I've been to plenty of shows there (including one three days ago) and never had or seen any issues. Maybe, just maybe, it's pop punk (or specifically TWY) fans who are assholes (this is directed at the people tweeting). Yes, security can suck sometimes and like I said I wasn't there to witness any of it, but I feel like the people trashing Metro only go to pop punk shows there every once in a while and base their opinion on the venue just off of those few experiences.
I hadn’t seen any of the tweets. I can’t speak to how security handled any of the actual fights, but they were just pushing surfers back into the crowd instead of catching them and sending off to the side behind the barrier like most places do. I don’t know if that’s normal there - it’s been a bit since I’ve been to the Metro, and the last couple shows I saw there were Against Me! (probably some surfing but I was in the back and couldn’t see) and mewithoutYou (definitely no crowdsurfing). I also don’t know what’s better for safety/etc, just a difference I noticed.
I wish Metro didn't do that thing where they push crowdsurfers back into the crowd while they're still in the air, but that's more of a venue rule thing than a person problem. That's my big issue with the two shows I've seen there. Aside from that, love that layout and the staff were very nice.
Yeah the Metro had been doing that forever, I've always hated it. Probably a decent amount more dangerous than just catching people over the barrier.
Ooo, see if you can link me to those tweets, I can't find them. I wanna see if they were from the people that tried to fight me.
Here are two of them:
I have 3 tickets to Friday's NYC show for sale-- I believe it is sold out. I paid $34 each for them including fees. I will sell them for $30 each.
Went down a rabbit hole and found one of the guys that tried fighting me. Apparently he got kicked out at some point and is now trying to get "boycott Metro" trending because he thinks it was harassment.
I can say with at least 100% confidence that these dudes were drunk (at minimum) and were being incredibly rude and violent to those around them, so I have about zero sympathy.
I was front row and I saw, in some cases, security couldnt push them back so they grab them and throw them to back falling in the people. Someone could get really injured.
Been going to Metro for years and never had a problem. Maybe just ban crowd surfing.
Lol. Good luck trying to get people to boycott the Metro. They're going to keep getting all of the mid-range shows of this size due to being one of the few ~1000 cap places in Chicago and being a solid venue. I've never had a bad experience there. My only issue with the place when I lived in Chicago was location due to being smack dab in the middle of Wrigleyville, but that's an aside.
The only places close in size to Metro are The Vic Theater (which mainly Jam Productions books) and Thalia Hall (which is a bit smaller and not in a prime location), so yeah, it would be ridiculous for people to actually boycott Metro. Sorry you (general you) had a bad experience but that does not mean everyone has to boycott the venue.
Edit: Also Concord Music Hall is close in size, but I feel Metro is better and usually gets better acts.
Anyone who went to Baltimore last night, what was trash boats setlist? Covers and regular set.
