I went to the patio and hung out with friends and it was another 20 minutes or so before Crystal Castles finally took the stage. The set was high energy and completely spastic and the crowd loved the whole thing. The lights were flashing and they had strobe lights and all the other dancey pants lighting, so taking pictures for me was a bit challenging, but Tim let me get in front of him on the sidestage to try and capture a couple. At least they give some idea how insane the crowd was.
After some quick shots, I was back on the patio, where it wasn't 110 degrees. It was certainly an entertaining night for me. Abraham and I spent the closing of the night at the back bar. After the show ended, I took this picture of the drummer, who informed us that Crystal Castles are always supposed to cover their faces for photos. "You're part of the club, now," he said.
As we were leaving, I got to talking to the manager (as seen in this pic from before the show). He was venting a little, he seemed pretty road weary. I had Friday off so I could pack and clean, so I was in no rush to get home. He said he had half an hour, so I took him up to the suspension bridge at Spruce St. then I took him back to the venue and was on my way. A nice way to spend my last night in San Diego, for sure.
Abraham crashed at my pad so he could take me to pick up my rental on Friday and it was nice having the time off to properly prepare for my trip as well as clean my house for Daniel who was pet-sitting for me. Come Friday evening, we were on the road to Vegas.
