cadott, wisconsin.



today rocks. literally. we are at rock fest in cadott, wisconsin, which apparently is a mecca for rock bands to come and play at. who knew? the lineup for the festival is so varied and weird and awesome. we were all pumped to see some stone temple pilots play, but more on that later.

after plain white t's (who were all really nice guys) played, switchfoot went up to do their thing. about 4 or 5 songs in, the festival had to come and pull the plug on it for a bit due to a gnarly storm coming in. there was literally nothing we could do about it, kind of a bummer, but hey, as much as the guys wanted to play, they people needed to get safe and out from where they were, so it's all good.

ok so remember how i mentioned that the other day was storm watch 5000? well, today would've been stormwatch 6000 because it seriously was insane. at one point we had to run from the dressing room to the food area, and after being in the rain for 10 seconds were completely soaked. it was nuts.

after long debate of if we wanted to brave the weather and see more music, we opted to do the 2 hour drive back to minneapolis earlier than later. the drive was gorgeous (post storm weather = amazing). we all decided to get patrotic and go to the mall of america where jon, tim, and i went on the spongebob squarepants rollercoaster. some of us then went and watched a certain caped crusader, and then called it a night.
