  • “I woke the same as any other day. Except a voice was in my head. It said seize the day, pull the trigger”. Hugh Soundgarden fan, would love to have a chance to finally see them in person.

  • they should’ve never let Mars Volta out of its Rusty Cage

  • Can we give reasons why we don’t want to go? Soundgarden was my first big boy concert back in the day and now that I’m officially a big boy (just turned 30), I don’t want to poison the memory if they turn out to suck now (never liked their later stuff).

    • “now that I’m officially a big boy”

      dude, first rule of being a man? don’t ever say this again.

  • Because Chris Cornell is hot!

  • never been to one of their concerts, but have always been a big fan!

  • Because I was born in 1984, which means I’m not a Gen-Xer, which means I grew up listening to Soundgarden in middle school but never got to see them live before they broke up. Instead, I had to endure Audioslave and Chris Cornell’s solo career during my prime concert-going years. I absolutely love Soundgarden and I really, really want to correct that.

    Also, because I “Fell on Black Days” recently, what with having my house broken into (you posted my note about this a few weeks back) and my laptop stolen. Since I’m a federal contractor and I’ve been waiting for almost two months for a big contract, I’m effectively unemployed and don’t have enough money to replace the laptop, and I’ve had to cancel a trip. I need a break. Help me, PoP! Won’t you come and wash away the rain?

  • I want to go because I, like Dave above, was born in 1984 but have always liked the ‘grunge’ from the PacNW – where I went to college.

    Also, if it counts, I love reading Prince of Petworth and have been reading since we were about to move to the DMV area from FL, last year, then subsequently spent 2 months in Alexandria, then moved out to Charlottesville – and coincidentally, I have to attend training in McLean that week and know I could become the popular kid in class if I had these tickets 😉

  • because I spent my 20’s in Seattle/Bellingham in the 90’s and spent it wearing flannels because it was practical. you could just tie it around your waist when it warmed up and put it back on when it rained. because I did catch one Nirvana show where they thrashed Mudhoney’s equipment. because I saw Pearl Jam in 1992 at a venue with 700 people. because I have hung out with the Spoonman. So I will feel the nostalgia for real and probably slam-dance and crowd surf and jump off the stage just because I will remember that that that is how you dance when it has rained for 99 days straight. I was born grunge. MUST COMPLETE Holy Grunge Trifecta: Nirvana/Pearl Jam/___________.

  • Because I grew up on Bainbridge Island – home of Ben Shepherd and Andrew Wood/Motherlovebone & kind of the birthplace of grunge. Seen many of the others but missed Soundgarden.

  • goodness gracious i wish this was savagegarden instead…

  • because i never got over the night my band opened for Nirvana

  • Because I hate Lynyrd Skynyrd.

  • Because I was born in Seattle in 1962, have seen Soundgarden a dozen times, and wasted most of my youth at the Comet Tavern. Oh, and Chris Cornell is hot.

  • I would LOVE to see Soundgarden perform. Rusty Cage has always been a favorite of mine. The Mars Volta is also a great addition to this show. I’m sure L’via L’viaquez is amazing live.

  • Man I have been a fan of theirs since Louder Than Love, sadly my overprotective parents never let me go see them when they toured around here and I was too good of a kid to sneak out. Curse my goody two shoes! Anyway, now that they are back, it would be great to finally get to see these guys, even if its nearly 20 years too late.

  • Because my wife spent her teenage years unable to avoid the crappy, easy-listening ballads containing uplifting, wholesome messages that permeated the house and is in need of serious reprogramming. I think listening to “Fresh Tendrils” live just might put her on the road to recovery.

  • When I was a freshman in high school, I wanted to go see Soundgarden with a friend of mine. Because my parents were a bit uh, strict, they said I could only go if my friend’s mom, or an adult, went too. That was the plan (for my friend’s mom to go … great lady, but still, seeing Soundgarden with your mom? No thanks.). But then my friend had to go to New Mexico for a funeral or something, and I never got to rock out to “Rusty Cage.” Maybe someday…

  • andy

    Because I remember when the guys from Soundgarden were the headbangers from the Lame List on Almost Live!

    Also, I have a Badmotorfinger.

    • Almost Live reference DESERVES the tickets.
      PoP I think it should be for an exiled Seattlite that has to suffer through all of this heat, humidty and serious lack of good coffee (thankfully microbrews are plentiful).

  • Puh-puh-puh-please pick me

  • I’ll lip-synch for my life if you want me to.

  • From Seattle, they’ve always been my favorite and I’ve never seen them live. The closest I’ve come is seeing Matt Cameron during his brief stint as Pearl Jam’s drummer at the Magnuson Park show and once buying Kim Thayil a beer at his favorite Seattle bar, Linda’s. Now who of you Soundgarden fans knew those tidbits?

  • because I got escorted out of their Dayton Ohio show in 1992 for “being to aggressive” in the mosh pit! First of all I wasn’t being aggressive, and second, is there such a thing as being too aggressive in a mosh pit? Ironically, my martyrdom occurred during “Jesus Christ Pose”!

  • because I can drum Spoon Man on expert on Rock Band 2 and not fail out!

  • Nothing seem to kill me no matter how hard I try
    Nothing is closing my eyes
    Nothing can beat me down for your pain or delight
    And nothing seems to break me
    No matter how hard I fall nothing can break me at all
    Not one for giving up though not invincible I know

    Won’t give up until I win tickets! And if I don’t…I’ll Blow Up The Outside World. 🙂

  • Prince Of Petworth

    Congrats to Dave!
