Last night was X-Fest in Rapid City, featuring the rock bands Saving Abel, Papa Roach, Avenged Sevenfold and Buckcherry. All you old fogies out there are going WTF?? at this point, but just bare with me here. It was loud, it was hot, it was sweaty....everything a rock concert should be. I've imbedded a couple of videos from YouTube below to give you an idea of what we saw. The first is footage from the concert last night of Avenged Sevenfold playing "Bat Country". Not too bad of quality for amateur video:
This second one isn't from the Rapid show, it's Buckcherry performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The first song is "Too Drunk...". Of course, they had to play the edited version on network TV, but at the concert it wasn't....I'll leave it to your imagination to figure out which words go where. They also play part of "Rescue Me", which is my current favorite song, on here, but it gets cut off at the end:
So, as if my ears weren't plugged up enough from a head cold I've been nursing for a few days, they now need to recover from a rock concert too. Oh well, it was very much worthwhile.
