Last night: Foo Fighters at Red Rocks

The Foo Fighters at Red Rocks were loud last night -- some of the highest decibel levels I've heard in a while (I'm not complaining, I just can't hear you).

It's obvious to anyone who has seen these guys that Dave Grohl simply adores being a frontman, and has found his calling in life. His affability greased the wheels of the show and trickled into everything they performed -- it was such a fun night. Musically it was a treat to watch Taylor Hawkins (the man, the myth, the machine) and Pat Smear (formerly of The Germs) play, as well as the two kickass women on their impressive stringed instruments (a cello and a violin methinks, but I was never an orchestra kid so it could be, like, a viola or something).

See all my photos here.

And in a move akin to listening to the band you just saw in the car on the ride home...

Everlong (acoustic)
Never Talking To You Again (Husker Du cover, live on BBC 1)
Times Like These (acoustic)
Keep The Car Running (Arcade Fire cover)
The Pretender (live on the Grammys, 02-10-08)
Kiss The Bottle (b-side, Jawbreaker cover)

Their show in Detroit this year was great, but I was a bit disappointed to see Dave doing the EXACT same moves in NYC on television a few nights later. It ruined the show for me, after the fact! It was too rehearsed for me.

Heather that third shot from the top is just incredible (yay for SLRs heh). I'm psyched to see it (and you!) in person this weekend!

Dave is one of the best front men of our time and junk.
