I went to this show. Melvins put on a decent set, though not my favorite. Definitely didn't help that it was like 100 degrees out and sunny/middle of the day, with minimal to no shade. They played: Sacrifice, It's Shoved, Anaconda, Queen, The Kicking Machine, I Want To Hold Your Hand (Beatles), a newer song that Steven sang, and maybe a few more. The setlist up on setlist.fm seems completely wrong (or I was way more fucked up than I think).

Super disappointing that Patton was having tons of sound issues with both his microphone and sampler for the Fantomas performance. Just this overwhelming, nasty digital distortion that was super frustrating to try and listen through. Still enjoyable overall; very cool to see Buzz and Dale kill those fucking bonkers Fantomas tracks. Really kind of gave me Fantomas blue balls too though; would love to see them again with no sound issues. Credit to Patton who shouted out the Giants super hard during their rendition of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" in front of two noted Dodgers fans (Buzz and Dale) and a Souther California crowd that was likely predominantly Dodger fans as well.

I'm not much of a Clutch guy but they put on a decent show I guess. Didn't do a whole hell of a lot for me.

Primus was excellent and got the crowd really in to the music for the first time of the day I'd say. Helped that the sun had finally gone down and shadows were falling as well. Good collection of some of their more popular tracks both old and new.

Tool were absolutely awesome. Super tight and heavy with the best (and trippiest visuals) I've ever seen for a concert. Much more entertaining than the last time I saw them over 10 years ago.

I heard Fantomas had microphone issues, which is too bad. On another note, when did Patton start looking so old?

yeah..i didn't notice his hair were turning grey

His hair went grey pretty quick so suggests he was probably putting a bit of boot polish in it.

That and the glasses.
Hail, not fail.
PS:  fuck him.

A word of warning, NEVER go to that venue [Glen Helen.] Waited three hours to get out of the parking lot. Complete gridlock until approx 2 am when the Sheriff's department finally showed up and started directing traffic. Just a nightmare. I guess we were lucky, some dude said he was stuck there for 5 hours after an Ozzfest show.

Melvins were good, but it was so , so hot, that there was no energy in the place until the sun went down during Primus. I think the 'new song' that Steve sang was a cover of "Savior Machine" by David Bowie.

As mentioned above, Fantomas had problems, but it was my first time seeing them, so it was still good.

Clutch was great, but too short of a set, with no oldies.

Primus had the benefit of the sundown and a great trilogy of songs to finish off with: Wynona/Mud/Jerry.

I've seen Tool seven times previously and this one was the best. They did a few more songs than usual, still nothing off of Undertow, though.

Great bill, decent sound, friendly salespeople, but I am never going to that place again due to the parking lot gridlock.
