Yeah, it's a copy of that.

I'm oddly proud to say I watched this live and thought, "I'll see this on a few blog posts later."

Who's god now?

As long as this steers clear of Promise Keeper-esque misogyny-cloaked-in-"religious tradition," I'm all for it.

Wait, is this playing this weekend, or two weeks from now? SIFF and Drafthouse sites conflict.

SIFF: 1/18 - 1/19
Drafthouse: 2/1 - 2/2

What gives?

Lots of factors came into play, but I really expected to be buzzing with excitement after seeing this on opening night and I thought it was just good. Some of the potential factors are as follows:

1. I was sitting three rows from the tippy top, in the Heavens as it were. I got the sense that actors play to the back of the house, but not the back-top of the house.
2. Bad eyesight is bad. Shows like this really drive home how much I depend on facial recognition when following what a person says. Since I didn't bring binoculars, I leaned on my ears more than I usually do, which brings me to...
3. Bad hearing is bad. I made out around 65% of the lyrics, which I don't blame on anyone but myself. These 37-year-old ears have been around and, as a result, there were times when I couldn't make out all the funny lyrics.
4. I'm already a South Park fan. I feel like so much of the gushing reviews came from people who were initially skeptical that a Parker/Stone Broadway joint wouldn't be just a bunch of fart and dick jokes that added up to nothing. I already know that they can deliver fart and dick jokes that DO add up to something, so I wasn't completely surprised by this fact.

Anyway, your mileage may vary, and I'm glad I saw it. I don't usually go to musicals that aren't written by John Cameron Mitchell and Steven Trask, so I was certainly out of my element, but it's definitely worth seeing.

Wish I knew about this before today. I have, in fact, taken my mom to see the sisters before and I would've done it again. They're incredible.

Yes, Perry sounded like a mushmouthed junkie, but "Three Days" fucking ruled.

I give Panic a lot of credit for being the only (I think) "jam band" of some renown that regularly uses power chords, so I suppose you could say there's some crossover there.

With respect to listening to Iron Maiden to get ready to listen to and watch Iron Maiden, this band is one of the few left where attendees are damn near REQUIRED to wear the shirt of the band they're going to see. Similarly, it makes perfect sense that those two were listening to Powerslave before the show.

In a lot of ways, I have no business loving Maiden as much as I do and I'm far from blending in with the crowd that went to this show, but as long as I'm flying the colors (I was), I really didn't have to worry about sticking out like a sore thumb.

Seeing Maiden in 2012 is a lot like seeing Maiden in 1985 - they do exactly what the fans expect of them and we return the favor by buying lots and lots of t-shirts, just like we did in 1985. We love them for being trapped in amber and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Please explain why on EARTH you would request Widespread Panic in the parking lot of a Maiden show.
