Friday night we saw a Led Zeppelin tribute band called Get The Led Out at a riverside outdoor venue in the town I live in. I had no idea they were a national act with a large following. They were fantastic. I'm guessing the crowd was in the 4,000 range.
Last night, also outdoors, Filter opening for Candlebox. The frontman of Filter, Richard Patrick, seemed like he thought he was too good to be playing a small out of the way venue, making dick comments towards the crowd several times. Candlebox's singer, on the other hand, seemed appreciative that people still wanted to see them 20+ years after their big hit. They were very energetic and a pleasant surprise for someone way past their heyday. It helps when your frontman isn't an asshat.
I know a former drummer for Filter. He quit because he couldn't stand working with/for R. Patrick.
