Zilker Park, Sept. 18

Dude, bro, did you catch that AWOLNation show? Shit was epic. When Bruno came out rocking "Jump on My Shoulders" and "People," it was over. So tight. I was throwing horns and freaking, chicks were crowd-surfing, and a dude even whipped out a boogie board and rode the damn thing through the crowd. I lost my shit, bro! "Soul Wars" killed, and I just had to tear off my shirt when they started crushing "Burn It Down" and "Sail." And that band can shred, hombre – like metal, but with cowbell because that's how you gotta do it, you know? Screaming, headbanging; I'm telling ya, it got intense, but Bruno was all cool, like telling everybody, "If somebody falls, pick 'em up!" Seriously, best bro show ever. We have to start rocking this shit at the frat.
