Real big thanks to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and TV on the Radio for doing it real big tonight -- we're just guestimating, but it looked like at least 10,000 of you showed up for the FNX/Phoenix blowout on Government Center. Nick Zinner's fam was in the crowd, and we'd swear that lady with the bob behind the soundboard was Karen O's mom. A bunch of dudes came down to chug bottled water and diet coke with us in the VIP, among them such swell folks as Mark Kates, Franki Chan and the Brilliant Mistake crew, Deb Eximious, and our man Rucker. We damn near got teary eyed seeing chicks with mohawks moshing and crowd surfing on the municipal pavement. Took us right back to 1994. Lots more to come shortly, thanks to Chris Dempsey for speeding back to the batcave to upload these before we go see Franki spin up at Great Scott.
