Bamboozle 2009

This was one of the best Bamboozle experiences yet. With over seventy bands to choose from on 5 stages for about $70 dollars, it was so worth it, and even the weather upheld at 75 degrees and sunny. I know Amanda posted on this, but I felt I had to also because it was such an awesome and crazy experience. Among my favorite performances included We Three Kings (whom I had never heard before coming there), All Time Lows, Bloodhound Gang (although Amanda was not to impressed), and of course Third Eye Blind. Oh and did I mention JOURNEY! Yes Journey! Journey was the special surprise guest of the night and with a new lead singer, they sounded amazing, the crowd will never stop believing in their talent for sure. The highlights of the day included when I got stuck in a mosh pit during New Found Glory and saw the guitarist from Bloodhound Gang puke three or four times after chugging beer. Although somewhat staged, absolutely DISGUSTING. Sidenote: *Mosh Pits should be on a list of things people with disabilities should not do. LOL. I left the pit with a slightly twisted ankle and my roommate left with only one flip flop. That was one of the scariest experiences of my life, but it made for a good story for sure.
Third Eye Blind captured my heart (as expected) for sure. Playing old songs including "Graduate" "Jumper" "Semi-Charmed Kind Of Life" and my all time non-hit "Motorcycle Drive By" as well as new songs from their upcoming album coming out in July "Don't Believe a Thing", the overall experience was memorable. If anyone has never heard Motorcycle Drive By-- check it out... here's part of the song from Bamboozle found it on YouTube


  1. I'm happy you posted on Third Eye Blind and Journey because I couldn't :( I also enjoyed We The Kings, the put on a good show. I don't know if you guys got to see the ska bands Edna's Goldfish and Bayside, but they were so much fun!
