The show was really great. It seemed like everyone gave their all. I was expecting a little more since it was the smallest venue on the whole tour and their first US gig. Maybe the intimacy of the small venue was enough of a bonus. I was only about 5-6 people from the stage. It was still a little hard to see since I'm a fairly small person. I still thought it sounded great. I thought it was a great show to put onto a DVD. Maybe the setlist wasn't every hardcore Incubus fans' dream, but they played it fairly fucking well. Kudos to Incubus to rockin' my night once again.

Tonight was my first incubus show. It f*cking ROCKED! I was right in front of the stage, second row pretty much... a mere few feet away from the band. They sounded awesome, so much so I didn't mind the fact I was being crowded by angry drunks, breathing the muggy air of other ppls evaporated body sweat, and sweating as if I were in a sauna. It was great. My sister even got a drumstick afterward, if you believe that Smile.

I want to see them again so bad. Too bad I'm so poor Sad.

[size=18]THIS POST WILL BE VERY LONG[/size]
Hey, everyone

I just wanted to fill you in, on some info from yesterdays amazing show. Let me start with the meet and greet. Jake from MYF picked us up at 7pm. We were then escorted to an upstairs ballroom, to then meet Incubus. They were fifteen minutes late (so what). We were in groups of ten, five groups in total. I was in group 2, but I was the first person, to be in the line. So when they came up, I was able to say lots of things. When I first met Mikey (he had a pimped out Mickey Mouse blue long-sleeved shirt on) and he was like "whats up?" I said hey "mikey" he then grabbed the card that Jose desigined which is like a glossy type of laminate card approximately the size of looseleaf paper, on the front it has two hands wrapped around flowers, and it says Make Yourself Foundation. I then told him how awesome he was, he thanked me.

So he looking at me and Im like "your going to put my name on it?" He said "course", then I spelled it out for him, cause he said it wrong. So while hes signing, I said "Mikey...all I have to say is 'ten shows 2 years', he was really like surprised, he was like how many?? Jose then jumps in, and he was "who went to ten shows, I then said "me" he was like ten shows wow!" I said hell yeah, today, tomorrow, msg, and wilkes barre, pa on monday. Mikey said "thank you so much" he was like "high five" and really made me give him a high five. So next is Jose. I said whats up, and he then questioned again what shows I was going to be attending. So i repeated myself, and told him, he told me how great that was, and that I have to rate the show. I told him NY was probably going to be the best, you know, because I'm a new yorker and I know they really flip things out while performing in ny. He then started making fun of me, because Im a new yorker. He said "ohh your from ny i couldnt tell!" I was like "what?" giving him this weird stare...He was like "im joking, I can tell cause of your accent"..I was like "really?" so then he got into his, being all cali and shit. Okay...next is Ben.

Ben and Kilmore adjacent to one another, and they both remembered me from IMX from May 18th, it was actually Kilmore that came out and said he remembered me, he said "yeah i was just looking at the card to see your name cause i had forgot it, whats up Natalie?" I said "chilling man", so Im speaking to Ben now, honestly, I forgot what we were talking about. So I'm back to Kilmore. Kilmore was so cool, I really appreciate him. (then again, they all are/were) I told him about the shows Im going to, and now Kenney interrupts us and says "your going to Wilkes Barre?" I said "yeah" he said "that right there is crazy, thats out there!" I said I know I've been there before though to see you guys perform, *this was with Dirk still in the band* he was like cool.

DID I MENTION THAT AS I WAS GOING ALONG THIS TABLE FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, I HAD ALL THE MEMBERS SMILE FOR ME IN MY CAMERA? MAYBE NOT.

So, now is Brandon, I was like "whats up brandon!" he was like "hey!" I asked him if he remebered me from IMX and he said "yeah i do" I was like you guys are playing "crowded elevator tonight right?" he was like "oohh no!, I didnt put that in the set tonight. I was like "brandon you promised me, at imx, for the garden, he was like "we'll put it in tomorrow, we forgot" I was like "okay, "new skin" his response, "i cant tell ya" 'out from under?' him again, "i cant tell ya" i was like ohh man..come on. he was laughing.

Okay, took a couple of pics there...then waited for everyone to get their signatures, we then took group pictures in front of this banner that says MYF and is an open road, this is the same image on the laynard that they sent us. I got in between ben and chris, you know all the groupies were arond Brandon. So when I was like "Im coming to my guys Chris, he and ben they said "YEAH!" all excited and shit. So I grab them by their waists, and they both have their arms around me. And we are talking so much not even realizing that they are taking pics....I told them "damn you guys are so skinny!" Chris said I know, and Ben was then again, telling me how hes a veggie. So after we take a couple of shots, I turn to chris thank him for everything tell him, ill see him tomorrow and monday, and I extended my arm he said "than you so much Natalie", next was ben, and the same thing from ben, he just said "see you soon Natalie, I said hell yeah, see you tomorrow and monday."

OKAY, NOW THE SHOW.

Since, the greeting was kinda long we missed almost the entire opener, which I really dont give a fuck about anyway. Ppl were booing Sparta, and I joined them. Incubus opened with "megalomaniac", next "nice to know you", next the ocassional, hey ______ (fill in place your at) brandon chatting with crowd. I do not remember the specific order of the songs but here is the list "megalomaniac, nice to know you, here in my room, vitamin with a fifteen minute drum interlude with brandon, ben, and jose, on the show, which was fucking phenomenal..it was mind blowing. Jose then finished off this by being on the drums for over ten minutes as the guys were off the stage, spotlight on jose. WONDERFUL! I got acknowlegement on stage from Ben and Brandon...which made me feel great.

THEY CAME BACK...following songs, favorite things,nowhere fast, here in my room, beautifully played, drive which was set totally different..actually sounds better too. a crow left of the murder, encore. "under my umbrella, brandon alone on stage for like 5 minutes playing guitar, then sings "pantomime" awesome, and the closing song" the warmth".

What I noticed a lot was the focus on each member now. Each member had their own spotlight, the biggest was Jose's . I really found that wonderful, Kilmore ripped it. Covering a song by Led Zepplin, i forgot the name of the song. While the guys were on the drums, they covered a bit of "take me to your leader". And shows over, and I have no voice. Its 931 in the morning, im going to take a shower, and head out to my next show. Excited

One thing i did not mention was my dear friend Angelina Rose, (photographer for this site) I put her on the phone with Brandon Boyd at the meet and greet, and he was so stoked in speaking with her, he grabbed my phone, and said "hi angelina", ohh i gotta go" love ya bye!"

I was pushed so hard by this fucker there..i understand..its his job.

So im finally done. Hope I said enough.
I will fill you in if i get vip again.
Cheers
natalie

it was just the first night. but this was a pretty bland set list. and also too short. they were playing more songs on the morning view tours. but maybe they are jamming more now? this is their standard/ hits set. hopefully it expands from this point. but by the time i get to see them in oct. i am sure the set will be entirely different from this. at least i hope so. i would have been disappointed if i went last night.

They didn't play "Favorite Things" last night. You're really lucky that you got to meet them, though. I wish I could've gotten some VIP passes. Once I get a car and some money, I'm gonna be following Incubus all over the place.

I honestly wish I was you. 10 shows??? Amazing.

Oh, anyone remember a while ago I had that thread where I told you guys that I had a friend who's Dad knows the head of security? Well that friend is going, so I might get to meet the band, and not the semi-rushed VIP style.

it really wasn't as short as you think. the drum solo was absolutely crazy. while the whole show seemed generic, i think we got the best encore of the tour so far. i got a couple of pics im uploading, but they were in section K so don't get too excited
