Best view at the show...

In this shot I think you can tell that I'm 1) being caught unawares by Brandon and trying to force the camera away and 2) fighting off a big whiff of the pot smoke that wafted all around us at the concert on Saturday. B had an extra ticket to the Aerosmith/Motley Crue show at Nissan Pavilion, and a girl who--in middle school--used to lay by the speakers in her bedroom to write down the lyrics to Def Leppard albums because the liner notes were sadly lacking does not pass up this opportunity. You know how I break for outdoor concerts; I'd never been to Nissan, and the people watching had the promise of truly great comic irony. I was not disappointed, but we got there too late to take any good pix of the crowd (sorry, Kristin!). It was a toss up between funny teenagers who for some reason think that 40+ year-old, leather-faced Vince Neil speaks to their angst and 50+ y-o former bangers who think STEVEN TYLER ROCKS HEP C OR NO HEP C!!!! Both bands are showing their age and all the "Fuck yeah, Fucking Washington!!"s were a little sad but... gorgeous fall weather, Miller Lite, and a midnight breakfast at IHoP made up for all that. Many thanks to Brandon for the ticket, being my chauffeur, and pointing out a great work of fiction to make the minutes spent trying to get out of the NP parking lot go by faster.
