Crowd interaction/talking..

"Hi. Is anyone here from Florida?" - Billy G

"Ok, everyone up in the balconies.. JUMP!!" - Roddy

"lots of misc chatter" - Mike

"What's up with the sodomy laws, Florida? Tell me. Is it legal or not for me to SUCK DICK in Florida?" - Billy and Roddy

The general mood of the crowd was good, the mood of the band was fucking awesome, and the mood of the whole show was incredible. The Edge in Ft. L is a very small venue, and it did nothing but make the whole show that much more powerful. The band was on the entire night, never fucking up or playing mechanically. The whole show was nothing short of breathtaking.

I went to an FNM show in Ft. Laudredale on May eight at the Edge...Best concert, without competition I've ever been to!!!! There were rhumors before the concert that Mike wasnt going to be as energetic with KFAD, all I can say is that when I saw Mike flip in the air, I almost exploded!!!!!!!!!!!
They played mostly KFAD, and a little bit of everything else. After the concert, we went behind the edge to see if we could meet the band, when all of a sudden , Mike Bordin was standing right in fron of me! My heart stopped for a minute and then I gained my composure enough to ask if I could take his picture and have his blessed autograph, he was very nice and very built! I'd never thought of puffy as a sex symbol until I saw him less than a foot away from me. Then, fast as lightning, we were mobbed and mike escaped. After that is a bit of a blur because of the crowds, but I met and took pictures of Roddy, Billy and Dean. One of my friends said to Roddy, "I've always thought you were the sexiest one," and Roddy replied, "I am." It was really cute, you had to be there, you would have laughed, I sure as hell did! Billy was so cute, he's short and chubby like a teddy bear! He gave us water bottles from the van because we were so hot, he was so nice to us! Dean was so eager to give autographs and talk to the fans that I got his autograph twice. Dean was making rounds of the crowd to make sure he signed everyones papers!!! He actually kind of hung out with us.
Then, all that was on our minds was, "where the hell's Patton??" To make a long, dissapointing story short, we waited almost all night and didnt meet him. Somehow, he snuck onto the bus, all of a sudden someone goes, "look, theres mike" and we all turned around and saw Mike in the bus. We were right there, right outside the bus, no more than 2 or 3 feet away from Mike Patton, our Hero, and he wouldnt even look out the window. We saw him eating pizza and playing nintendo. Some people were knocking on the bus, waving and we were all trying to get Mikes attention...then, all of a sudden, Mike comes to the window, looks out at us all and.....
closes the f-cking curtain! I nearly cried...oh it hurts me just to think about it!
Thats my close encounter of the FNM kind.
