Monster Trucks - April 4th @ Holt Area in Pocatello
Ryan, Ashley, Nick, Ben, Aisha and I all went and had a great time...
The trucks were cool to watch in between the hours of Pocatello motocross races (there were thousands of them). All in all, the trip was really fun minus the $7 nachos and $3 drinks.

...and a week later Jack's Mannequin played @ the Civic in Idaho falls
As far as Idaho Falls concerts go this one was pretty amazing. All the bands played well and the sound was great. The Civic microphones usually are pretty horrible - think of a voice speaking through a tin can.
The other bands that played were Low vs Diamond and Thriving Ivory. Both of which played very well and sounded great. Although they were entertaining, neither of them could top the greatness that is Jack's Mannequin. JM played in their usual hyper and energentic way that just cannot be ignored. The crowd was loud and lost their minds after every song. Andrew McMahon, JM's lead singer/pianist, was his very upbeat - kind self and threw in a song from his previous band (Something Corporate),which was a very nice gesture to long time fans of his music such as myself.
I'll leave some pictures (pretty low quality since they were taken with my phone) and links to each of the band's myspace pages so you can hear what they all sound like.
Until next time...
