Anyway, they were playing a show at midnight at the Metro, which was kinda cool. There was no opening band, so we got in around midnight and they came on around 12:20 or so. I hate waiting hours for a band to come on stage, so that was as big plus.
It was crowded in there, but not too croweded. When I saw 311 in the same place it was insane. They couldn’t have packed more people in there if they wanted to.
Secret Machines played most of the songs I know: they only have 3 CDs. And, they did this cool thing at the end of the show they setup their guitar in some kind of loop and left it on stage with the strobe lights and fog machines going full blast as they exited the stage. The loop continued for another 20 seconds or so before snapping off and the lights for the venue came on. Pretty cool!
