2010-05-01 - The Woodstock - a cowboy bar with pool tables and sawdust on the floor submitted by Riot Nrrrd™

I was at this show, along with my roommate at the time. We drove up from Newport Beach. We went to this show because it was a lot closer than the Reseda gig the night before. KROQ hadn't yet played "I Will Follow" to death (that happened immediately afterwards - note how they went from a small club to the Santa Monica Civic in 2 months' time).

I don't know how many people were there, but it was definitely more than a dozen and less than 100. I mostly remember the sawdust on the floor and the pool tables and tripping out that U2 was playing at a place like that. It was a Monday night so that probably did not help matters. I guess in a way this show was much like modern-day gigs at the Glass House in Pomona - they get announced after the "main" gig in Hollywood/LA proper (which often sell out) and you go to them and there's a lot less people there, but somehow they end up being more "special" that way.

I wish I could remember the gig proper but to be honest I just remember being pretty close to the stage and thinking this was a pretty darn good little Rock band. Little did we know what was in store for them in the future! I still have my ticket stub for this show; you can find it on Flickr. (Thanks to Mike Mergenthaler for his memories and posting the flyer for the gig!)
