06:32 - MetalDoomMaster I'm a fucking retard. I was staying with a friend in Merrillville and neither of us knew it was in a different time zone even though it was in the same state, so we missed the first hour of the show. Just saw the last Aeon song.
06:30 - Fearmeister Yea, it was a cool show. I love how the guy next to me was like 'WHOA' when Tribulation was playing :P
06:29 - MetalDoomMaster I don't know how I didn't see that haha. That guy completely ruined the vibe of the last song. He was up front arguing with the guards the whole time. That was my first time in Indy. Nice city.
