Today the second stage acts got a day off due to a lack of suitable facilities at PNC. [Tomorrow they pick up the pace again, at the Village Underground in Manhattan, but note that their show and the Jones Beach main show are simultaneous independent shows.] Anyway today we got the inside scoop on Julian from the Strokes, whose injury is still quite nasty, which we sadly learned has forced them to cancelALL their remaining scheduled dates on the Enlightenment Tour. Julian isnt even able to leave his home for now, but the rest of the Strokes came by to show their support and catch the big rock show. Well, I guess you win some and you lose some. Bummer. And over in the 'win' category, some serious rain and thunderstorms only just grazed the show early on in the evening, after threatening a massive downpour all day. cool. Meanwhile, the show itself was sweet, and the Jersey crowd roared their approval of the setlist choices. Rivers seemed to be telling the crowd he'd had a strange day so far, but the warmth of the fans (and the pyro!) helped him find the core of the rock tonight. Late in the set, a too-perfectly aimed water bottle from "too tall" Pat Wiggedy Wilson somehow totally creamed my camera, sending it into the dark depths of the barricade pit in several pieces. But i gotta say this for the Olympus C-4040: it took the hit in stride, and didnt even shut off when the PNC cameraman dude unwittingly stood on it till i found it! Not a scratch!
