|After a steamy, T-storm threatening afternoon, the steamy, non-T-storm threatening evening got underway and the now 7(!) Enlightenment bands got down to business. The Special Goodness joined the tour for the first of 6 opening slot Side Stage appearences. They weren't foolin around, and the rock was brought in spades. Then Enlightenment newcomers Rooney delivered their second very well recieved set, and the action started on the main stage. There were some grumblings in the crowd about Spartas sound being bass-y and unclear tonight, but, as it happens at these large places, others seated elsewhere had no trouble with it at all. Overall it was a fine rock-packed evening, with a lot of smiling faces walking out at the end...
Today was the last day of two different 'on the road' visitations, one being Tim 'Speed' Levitch gracing the weez camp with his unique perspective and wit, the other being Geffen president Jordan Schur, joining the weez for a few days to catch the pulse of the Enlightenment Tour, and hang out. Theyve headed back to their respective domiciles now, but good times were had!
