Concerts two nights in a row? Hell yeah. I saw Richard Patrick about a year before this with Army of Anyone but I hadn’t seen Filter since 1999 when their newest album was Title of Record. The tour for The Amalgumut was cancelled when Richard entered rehab and now here we were 6 years after that and still a couple months away from the release of Anthems for the Damned. I vaguely remember Marvin and myself buying tickets off some dude from Craigslist at the last minute and the meeting feeling like a sketchy drug deal. Apparently San Diego was the very first stop on this tour. The band was well rehearsed and the energy in such a small place was electric. It reminded me of the first time I saw them at DV8 in Seattle about 6 months after Short Bus came out.
