I got the set list for Anberlin. Managed to grab it when their manager threw it out into the crowd.

Dead set insane gig! Shame on all the bored onlookers from the back! Wherewolves were alright, but the Academy Is were just in a whole different class, they were way better than what i was expecting and Anberlin.. well its Anberlin! Would try help out with the set lists, but i just can't remember..lol.
mezziie was that before the show? william and michael guy walked passed as we were lining up in the alley but we were too completely stunned to say anything! ha. good for you for having the courage to go up. anyway the show was amazing I thought all 3 bands were great, I'd appreciate if anyone can write the setlists for any of the bands.
got a hug from will beckett in the street. if anyone saw the random short asian girl running after them, that was me.
major LOL at the strange looking scene girl that was there.
twas a great night and an epic performance by the bands. :D
One of the greatest night of my life! I got one of Anberlin's signed guitar picks and my friend got Nate's drumstick he was using. I was right at the front middle of the mosh pit and hopefully will get on video as the guy filming did a close up:D.
I have 2 tickets for this show. $100 for the pair. Problem is they're from moshtix so I'll need to email front and back of my cc (numbers blanked out) and a validation form to the person that wants them. Genuine mistake I bought Melb tickets instead of Perth. Now I can't go to the Perth gig either as it's sold out. What a nightmare!
It was a thursday night, and there was a couple of thousand in there (noting the other bands playing were pretty popular, but none got anywhere near the reception Anberlin did). Billboard only houses 1000 doesn't it?
I think they're stupid for playing at Billboard. Billboard is a crap venue, should've played at Palace again, or brought another big band and tried out Festival Hall. Seriously, these guys are pretty damn big in Melbourne, it could have worked. Billboard on a Tuesday night? Cheating themselves!
and to everyone else reading this I really apologise for sounding so bitter, but quite frankly, I am. And if someone genuinely has a spare ticket they are selling at cost price I will happily pay you for it! :)
oh I just realised that you're selling those. yeh I offered to buy that 2nd ticket from you privately but you insisted on auctioning it off because you somehow justify taking $150 for a ticket you obviously didn't pay anything near that much for. enjoy your cash I'll enjoy being in Melbourne for a week and NOT seeing my fav band because some people bought more tix than they needed.
@Bloc_Headd, but u're paying to see The Academy Is... as well. they're pretty good too!
so i think 60 bux is worth it. i agree with _obscure on this one, parkway drive are locals. of coz it'll tend to be cheaper.
Wouldn't be surprised if Stealing O'Neal get it. Seem to be playing with lots of big guns lately. and they fit the genre. Also; lol @ Bloc_Headd, of course Parkway Drive are cheaper. They're fucking locals. Always expect to pay 60-80 for internationals.
And ticketek is 53.80, then you have to pay registered mail which was like $8. So i paid close to $60 a ticket, all worth it but. Don't know what crack you've been smoking, PD are pretty decent live (minus all of the tools that go, and the 12 yr old girls in the mosh), but anberlin are definitely somethin else. Pay the money, it'll be worth your while.
LOL! more then likely a local band, i haven't been to a gig this small in Melbourne that wasn't a Hard Rock / Metal band, so i don't know the local alternative rock scene too well, but im sure they will find someone decent enough
