So, I had tickets to see Low tonight. On the way there on SkyTrain, I noticed more than the usual number of drunken yahoos - you don't often see people downing 40s just before getting on the train. During the ride into downtown, there was an announcement that 'the concert at GM Place tonight' had been cancelled. As the train passed GM Place, it was obvious that there was a large crowd of disgruntled concertgoers outside. After getting off at Granville, I called a buddy, who informed me that the concert was Guns 'n Roses. I predicted a riot was imminent.
As for the main event: Low was great. I don't know if you could ever refer to them as rocking, per se, but they sure mellowed damn hard. They also commended us for our cheap and excellent sushi.Posted by Bill Stilwell at November 08, 2002 01:23 AM
