so this was posted on the deftones.com today sometime in the afternoon:
We are in vancouver at a sold out show at the Commodore.. The band are doing something special tonight and are allowing the kids to bring in cameras/recording stuff and video as long as it is small and not pro gear..
that was from their tour manager.
their myspace looked like this:Going to the show tonight in Vancouver?
If so, bring your small recording/video devices to capture the action. Snap cameras, video cameras, etc are all welcome. Tonight is going to be a bootlegger friendly show. Everyone is invited to bring in your personal recording equipment but no professional gear please. It's gonna be a unique show and we want it all captured by you... and if you want to be a real pal, you can send a message tomorrow for an address to send a copy to. Tell your friends... and as always, thanks!
don't really like they way they called me a bootlegerr but whatever..
arrived at the commodore at doors. real excited. i heard a scalper was selling a ticket for 170. others didn't even have tickets to sell. mandatory bag check was still there, but i was able to keep my bag w/ me. didn't even search it. gotta hand it to the tour manager, didn't get hassled at all, except by this one guy who asked for a pass, but didn't really follow up on it:
him: what's in the bag
me: my camera
him: do you have a pass?
me: i don't need one.
him: let's see the camera.
*i show it to him*
*he walks away*
Around the Fur (in its entirety, in order)
Adrenaline (in its entirety, in order *Edit* no fist)
kinda looked like the deftones were trying to do something similar to the beastie boy's 'holy fuck i shot that' or whatever it's called. too bad, cuz aside from their crew, i think i was the only other person who taped it. saw one other filmer, but he couldn't have possibly gotten the whole thing. plus he kept moving around. oh well. oh yeah and in true deftones fashion, there were stage divers.
