The highlight (or lowlight, depending how you look at it) was the night program, where Reggie Dabbs spoke (very good), and Pillar and Switchfoot played. Now, Jon Foreman, the lead singer, decided to jump off the stage, run around the crowd, and climbed up the wall to the bleacher seats where we were. He climbed the wall and climbed directly INTO MY SEAT.
This would've made for excellent photos (which was really the only thing I was thinking about) if not for the fact that about 20 minutes previous I had been shoved along the row from my original seat to be about 4 seats down. Now 4 seats isn't too far, except when it's a 'famous' person... then about a thousand screaming girls can fit into that space, climbing all over you, pushing you, and destroying any chance of getting a decent photo of the man who would've climbed straight into my seat, if not for me making room for other friends. *sigh* Oh well. I got one blurry shot of Jon Foreman's head the size of a pea, obscured by the thousand screaming girls. I got some amazing shots of the crowd that ran across the field and crowded at the bottom of the wall he had climbed... ha!
Well anyway, here are a few pictures...
The guitarist of the band Lukas, playing on one of the outdoor stages.
Behind the emo/screamo stage. It was just about the most ear shattering stage ever. Oy.
Pretty lights... That's actually Switchfoot, but it doesn't really matter from this distance. They sounded wonderful, though.
A blurry bass player. I like this picture.
In other news, my visa stuff has been moving along well. I got fingerprinted today at the police station!! It was fun. I got my hand and fingers scanned on this big machine. It was tres cool.
Have my medical examination tomorrow, where I shall be prodded with needles and probably need to pee into a cup. *SIGH*
