|The Tweeter Center in Mansfield is sort of like a giant summer camp with an ampitheatre built in. Out in the parking lot before the show, people were just loungin in true tailgate style. The weez patrol set out on BMX bikes to assess the situation, and we determined that the peeps were having bonafide cookouts on little portable grills, blasting music from boomboxes, and hosting "chip a golf ball at the giant w that we mounted on the roof of our Dodge Caravan and win $3" contests. Wait a minute, "chip a golf ball at the giant w that we mounted on the roof of our Dodge Caravan and win $3" contests? Thats right! We dont know why they built it, why they mounted it to the roof of their motor vehicle, nor why they were having people chip golf balls at it for a $3 prize if they hit it, but we do know that they didnt intend on taking it home with them, and were trying to sell it! We didnt need yet another giant w, so we declined. Did anyone end up with it? They claimed they were gonna torch it right there after the show if no one took it off their hands, and they had the lighter fluid to do it. We did see, however, a bicycle Police unit patrolling the parking lot later, so who knows what went down in the end...
...Today the side stage zone was a nice forested glade perfect for a campfire sing-a-long, and the side stage bands laid down another trio of the good rock. And the Camp Weez Ampitheater hosted another rousing pep rally, where the giant w did indeed burn, no lighter fluid needed!
