I've been on the train since '93. Growin' up right up the hill from Red Rocks didn't hurt. Last years Hollywood Bowl show, although good, didn't have the expected energy. Unique venue, but left wanting. Long Beach brought me back!! Fun and exceptionally energetic crowd for SoCal! Good small venue, too. Second set was ridiculous! Only complaint, and it's a not a bad complaint to have by any means, is that there were a few repeats from the Bowl. Cities (which has recently started becoming one of my fav's), Kill Devil Falls, Quinn the Eskimo, and closin' with the Julius @ both. Again, not complainin' (at least not much! LoL).
