Alright. There's tooooooo many posts to read before I finally post my review. All I have to say is WOW. Here we are 4 days later and I still am mezmerized by Friday night. PVD threw down the sickest set I've ever heard in my entire 25 yrs of existance, well, then came Spirit. We'll leave that for later. At first I thought the rain was going to be a big downer and ruin the night, but it had the total opposite effect. The rain added so much character, for lack of a better word at this point, to the whole experience. The atmosphere and the vibe were surpassed by nothing on the face of this earth. I'm sure you all have read what tracks were played and how the lasers were sick etc etc etc so I won't repeat it. But I will agree with it. One of the best moments of the night, to me at least, was when the rain was coming down really hard and PVD just came to the front of the stage and just started handing out napkins to everyone he could to let us dry ourselves off. That was really cool of him. PVD was def. on point with his track selection and keeping the crowd moving and shit. I wish the night never ended!!!!!!! Alright, now for the shout-outs to all my fellow TA's:
Brian---->My man, I told you we were going to have the sickest time ever and man did we ever. You are a focking party animal and great friend. I can't wait til we do this again. You're the focking man!
Rach---->Babe, you are awesome. You're such a sweetheart and such a genuinly good person. We had so much fun this whole weekend and altough the bulshit happened with your flight back, we still managed to make the best out of a fucked up thing. We will party again soon, I promise. Next time, I'll make the real Penne ala vodka
Bree---->You really are the best. Your hospitality to everyone was, I can't even put it into words. You're a great person and you def. know how to host a party. Thank you soooooo much for everything.
Indy---->It was sooooooo fun hanging out with you again. You're soooo great and you just make everyone feel like bugging out and partying. Really great person.
John & Alisa----> You two are amazing. I always have a great time when you guys are there. Alisa, I hope the shirt helped out John, I knew deep down inside you were a PVD muppett like me. I never thought I'd ever see you partying your ass off and enjoying PVD the way you did.
Zaneta---->Didn't I tell you that you'd love PVD once you saw him live? I'm glad you had a good time.
Cubie---->Great person bro. Nice to meet and hang out with you all weekend. You ripped that shit up on the decks at the "after" "after party" at the loft. Good shit bro. much respect.
Vlad---->As always, what a fucking time. Nice to hang out with you for a quite a few hours rather than like 2 hours at Junkie XL. Dude, what the fuck was up with that guy in Spirit that kept bothering Erin's friend? I was standing right next to you waiting to throw down if he got any more out of control. He would have still been laying there after we were done with him.
Sal---->You're a fucking party animal yourself bro. Always great to see you and hang out. It'll be de ja vu all over again for Armin @ SS.
Sean---->Bro always a pleasure to see you and your fiance, brother and his girlfriend. Didn't hang out much this time, but we'll make up for it at Armin bro. Great to hear Remember played at Spirit. Def a highlight of my night. I went looking all over for you when Paul dropped it.
Sergio---->Man, haven't hung out with you since Armin back in April. Nice to hang out again bro. You're a cool friend bro. we'll do it again soon.
There's just soooo many more to mention: Pat(Bree's bf) you're awesome bro, Adam-- you cracked me up all fucking weekend with your jokes. you're a funny mofo.
Erin, Daniela, Alyssa...It was so awesome to finally meet you girls. I can't wait til we all hang ot again.
I think that about covers it. This weekend wouldn't have been that same if it weren't for the people that I mentioned above. If I forgot to put you there, I'm sorry. It's not intentional. My mind is shot and I'm still fucking recovering I love you all and can't wait to do this again!!!!!! I'll end this with a quote taken from PVD's website:
