Weezer Concert with Jen, Jason, Danielle and Scott

This weekend Emily and I stuck around Portland as I was expecting to go shooting for my first time with Eric, Conrad, Tom and Ira but at the last moment plans got cancelled and I have yet to fire my first real gun.  Thankfully, we did have a backup plan and that was to join Scott, Danielle, Mischa, Pete and Fausti for a Weezer concert at Edgefield with tickets that BD couldn't use and sold to us.  Danielle, Scott and Mischa showed up to our place around 6:30pm and Emily had gone to pick up the Thai food we all ordered while they were on their way.  The poor place got Danielle's order wrong which got uncomfortable for a bit but I enjoyed mine as I love Thai food now.  

This was our first concert at Edgefield and it was a lot of fun.  We found Pete and Fausti on the lawn on our way down towards the stage and they joined us.  Thankfully we missed the opening band which everyone around us was saying was pretty terrible and religious-based.  Weezer came on around 8:45 and performed for a little over an hour, having to stop at 10pm after one encore because of the noise laws of the Columbia Gorge and nearby hotel.  I thought they were fantastic and although I haven't listened to their newer tracks I certainly will as I liked them too.  This show brought me straight back to my high school years and was definitely worth the cash we paid BD for the tickets.  After the show the traffic was terrible leaving the lot so we just tailgated behind Scotts car with everyone, disregarding the officials who told us to stop.  After nearly an hour of waiting for traffic we found ourselves some of the last people there so we said our goodbyes and headed home, listening to Weezer the whole way!
