When colleges or universities put on shows they try to suck all the money out of the concertgoers' pockets. It was very hot and they charged $2.00 for a little dixie cup of coke. They charged $5.00 to park. There was a padded area in front of the stage I think this made the crowd body surfing and moshing a lot more than they would have if there was no padding on the floor. Security was more interested in the backsides of the teenage girls than any kind of security. I have seen this band 6 times. This show was the worst one. The best show was at the Park West, Chicago, Illinois.

Total Cost: $10.00
