Mistress of Reality and FTM rocked my face off at the Troubadour last night!
Before FTM’s set, Mike placed a flyer for the defunct LA punk band, The Weirdos, against his Marshall amp (the same amp that he stuck the head of his guitar in TWICE during the show). Here is the flyer: http://www.theweirdos.net/flyers/pages/weirdos%2520middleclass%2520agentorange%5B1%5D.htm
Mike was killing it on the flying V for most of the evening while wearing a black “Shadow” t-shirt. He was very active with the crowd and very generous throwing out guitar picks. Cool moment when he signed Ernie Vedder’s 7” Keep Off vinyl and took it across stage to have Star Anna sign it too (see his post for pic).
I saw four equipment cases (#207, 217, 304, and 305) on stage with the classic Pearl Jam stencil and “F.T.M. Tour” written on fluorescent green duct tape. Cool to think that the Troubadour stage was the 1st time the boys played under the name Pearl Jam (3/10/1991). http://www.troubadour.com/history
Doors opened at 8pm. Mistress of Reality went on at 9pm and FTM hit stage just after 10pm.
I am glad that I got there early because I was able to get one of the McCready bobbleheads from when he played the national anthem at the Mariners game in 2011 for CCFA night. I also got a shirt & poster.
