Had a great time last night at Darien Lake for @aliceinchains and @korn_official – got a great shot of @jerrycantrell and managed to snag a pick from @munky_korn as well! #aliceinchains #aic #jerrycantrell #korn #munky #darienlake #concertpics

*HAD* to get pit for this one. Much like the Bush/Live/OLP show, this was peak high-school! I got there just as Underoath was finishing, so they barely make it on my list here. Kiersten, Pete, their friend Nick and his girlfriend all rolled in during set change, so I had buds all night too. Having not seen Alice in Chains for over a decade (with Velvet Revolver in 2007), and not since any of the newest three albums, I was very excited. And naturally, they didn’t disappoint! A nice mix of old and new songs, it seems like our list had some stuff that they do play, but not that often (Rainier Fog), and then one that was really off the board (Sludge Factory!). The entirety of Nutshell was fantastic, dedicated to Layne and Mike Starr, and Jerry’s solo was incredible. Highlight of the show for sure. The whole band was great, and simply, they still got it!

Switching from the grunge to the nu-metal, the pit filled in for Korn nicely, and they made use of it right away opening with Here to Stay, into Blind, into Divine. Get ’em whipped up early! Korn sounded really good, Jon Davis still has it, and just like Alice the set was a nice mix of old stuff and new stuff. We got the brand-new You’ll Never Find Me, and the first songs of the encore were 4U (which opened the encore back in 2000) and Twist, which is always fun. Not much to review other than the show was super-solid, everyone had a good time, and since I parked near the front gates, I got out in record time!
