So this show has a little bit of craziness behind it (to say the least) and i was very fortunate to have even made it after all that happened on my way to Bend, OR to go see the all mighty Ween! Im not going to get into details but i was in fact arrested 8/27 while en rout to the show which was on the 28th! Without the help of my loving friends and them helping front me the $500 for bail i would not have made it to this show at the beautiful Les Schwab Amphitheater... So I made bail and was picked up a few LONG hours after being arrested by Officer Chambers (aka lying asshole) of Klamath Falls PD and was once again on my way to camp the night before the show as planned... That next day i woke up still kinda bummed out since i knew i had some legal issues to deal with down the road but i wan't going to let that ruin the fact that i was going to once again see my favorite band!

We got to our hotel room at the Best Western and started smoking bowls and getting ready for the show, i later touched base with Kobi (who works with the band recording live video and audio) to ensure i get my gear in alright i gave him all my stuff so i wouldn't have any problems with security (thanx kobi) and i returned to our room to eat some pizza and smoke some more good stuff! After eating and doing what we do we made out way to the venue, the weather was looking kinda grim and there was a good chance of rain (not good for recording) but after all the shittyness i was still optimistic! I met up with Kobi by the soundboard and we all started setting up our rigs looking at the sky hoping for the best, then came the rain! plastic bags covered our microphones and camcorders. This is about 20-30 mins before show time and it's not looking good but just a few minutes before Ween takes the stage it stops raining and the the clouds don't look as fierce, plastic bags are removed and the band takes the stage and proceeds to blow minds! Multiple rainbows made their presence in the horizon as the band played on... Gener looks out and goes "hey look it's a homo rainbow" fucking priceless and very surreal moment in my life and to think i was in a jail cell the night before also blew my mind!

This show will definitely be one of my most memorable ones and im glad i got to spend it with some of my closest friends!
