Jodging by past shows for myspace, the cure should play for at least an hour and a half - will be interesting to see what a trimmed down set contains / maybe an indicator for the O2 show in London next February?

I went.
We were in line and some car pulls up and this guy asks who is playing. Someone says The Cure, he says s*** and starts texting. It was Jared Leto's brother.
So Jared was there, The Killers, Ryan Gosling, and Kirsten Dunst.
I missed Leo.

The show was fantastic. I had to move a few times because I'm short and people kept getting in my was so I finally squeezed to the 2nd row off the side on Simon's side. During Freakshow he looks at me and says 'how are you?' haha I guess after seeing my fat face in the crowd so much...

I was soo excited to hear Hungy Ghost but it sounded totally flat to me.
Jumping Someone Else's Train is so fun to hear live.
yay fun night.

Yeah, again and again...

Simon and his damn pop songs  :roll:

However, I swear most people thought they were going to end with Boys Don't Cry and call it a night.  At least it felt like that since it looked the majority of the crowd wasn't much into it.  As soon as JSET came on the crowd erupted!  Seriously, massive difference in the room!  :rocker  The level excitement continued until the boys left for good.  I got a pretty big rush from the crowd/band feeding off one another.  F***ing crazy!  :rocker :rocker :rocker

My niece took a few pictures on her sidekick. I hated not having a camera but lots of people had them and used them and was not told to stop.

It is a very small club.  Maybe 500 people?  200 fans/normal people and 300 or so guests/a-list types if they all showed up.

Title: Troubador 12/13/08 AMAZING
Post by: minisuperjennifer on December 14, 2008, 20:31:21
I came to LA to see the cure tonight at Acoustic Christmas, and found out yesterday about a secret concert they were doing at the Troubador. I was the 46th person out of 150 people to get a pass (the other half were rock star VIPs) and saw them play from the front row leaning on the stage, within touching distance in a 300 person venue.  I was so close to Porl that I had to lean back when he really jammed out. What a truly amazing experience.

Plus, all of the cure fans that I met yesterday are sooooo awesome. What a great community!

We were close in line then. We were 54th and 55th.
I expected a mob scene out there. We didnt get there until after 11am and only 50 people were there!

DJ - I dont really care for JLeto but I've met him a few times because my niece likes them and he is really sweet.

I thought it sounded great.   :rocker  A fantastic finish for a show in support of the new album.  It seemed like the crowd was into it, or at least the people in front of me certainly were.  To be honest, I was kind of in a daze during that strech right there and didn't notice mych around me.  You all will get a chance to hear it soon.

I had my mics on, tucked under my shirt and hoodie.  The R-09 was hidden in an uncomfortable spot.  The battery box was in my pocket along with my cellphone.  The guy asked what was in my pocket.  I pulled out my phone and was allowed in.   8)  If he had asked what the battery box was.  Um, it's a charger I made for my phone  :-D  I just hate stuffing everything in my crotch, so I try to avoid it when I think I can get away with it.

Now, for the Carson Daly show I had the battery box and R-09 down there.  Had to go through an airport metal detector AND then got the wand after.  Thank you metal belt buckles!  ;)

Because they sell their photos to other media outlets.  Buy the pic, the watermark is removed.  It is pretty standard for photographers to do that.  A prime example is my son's hockey pictures.  Each year they take individual and team pics, plus pics at various tournaments.  At the tournaments they have computers and printers there so you can get the pics on the spot, plus they give you a web address to view them later and purchase if you want.  The images on the website have their watermark so that you don't just save the pics without paying the company.

Didn't know if I should post it on this site too.

What a trip!
