I arrived at Mohegan Sun at about 2pm and located the small line that had already formed at the entrance to the Wolf's Den, where the performance would be. The people in line were friendly and we exchanged places to go for drinks, bathroom etc.

We also met Chris, who is the band manager (?) and also plays with the band. He told us that HL wasn't there :( but he did bring us snacks. :)

At about 4ish they began getting ready for the sound check, and that was when Bob Guiney arrived. He learned all our names and greeted us, and took pictures with us (there were about 6 or 7 of us who had been waiting).

About an hour later, Chris has brought us more snacks and we were mowing them down and completely missed Jesse Spencer arriving. He waved and smiled at us, but didn't come over for pics, but he had to get ready for the sound check.

A little while later, James Denton arrived, and dramatically collapsed at the bottom of the stairs. He had been filming all night, flew here, and immediately got involved with the sound check.

After the sound check, they filed out the back way and went to dinner , I'm assuming. At that point JS's girlfriend (the same one we saw him with at the Emmys) arrived.

We finally got seated and waited for the show to begin. At that point Rebecca Budig, who was singing with the band came over and took pictures with some of the women. (Other than knowing she was married to Bob Guiney, I had no idea who she was, I'm not big on daytime soaps lol.) Also there was someone else from AMC there sitting behind us and also talked and had pics taken.

Then the show began, which was really, really good. They were all happy and full of energy. The crowd stayed seated for awhile until BG encouraged us to stand, and we "rushed" the stage. (The stage was like 2 feet in front of me, so there was no big rush lol.)

They were all really great, and hot, and sounded amazing. :)

I wish I had taken the time to write down the setlist, like I normally do, but I was busy taking pictures so I didn't get a chance. I know they did the following:

In no order:
Pink Cadillac
Who Knew
Baba O'Riley
Mustang Sally
Wild Nights
Papa Loves Mama
Shake Your Tailfeather

My (not so great) pictures are here.

So I went to see Death Cab for Cutie last night at Agganis Arena. It was a very good show, and it was over so quick, despite the seemingly long set list. I had primo seats (6th row floor). I was so happy when they played "Soul Meets Body," since it is the song that inspired Camping. But they HAD to play "I Will Follow You Into the Dark" right after which always reminds me of All Good Things, and I'm sobbing and I feel like such a baby. So that was totally awesome, and "Transatlanticism" as the final song was just brilliant.

So it was awesome and I had a good time even though I went alone.

(Yes I know this is a lame review, but idk whatever my head and back are killing so....)
