Hootie and the Blowfish @ HOB Anaheim 8/22/08. Written Aug 29, 2008.
We arrived at the show in high spirits of seeing one of the bands that we have heard and sung along to for years now but before we even got to the show everything started turning around for the worst and bad vibes were flowing through the air.
We arrived in the show a little late, we missed the first band and waited for what it seemed to be 45 minutes just to see those curtains open. Finally they did, with a packed house they started playing. We started out watching them from the back of HOB and then decided to fight through the crowed to work our way to the front to get a better view.
With a lot older crowed not used to the idea of a packed show we quickly realized that this is not the place for us. I guess I stood on some older ladies foot and she got mad and we got in some other ladies space bubble and offended her to the extent of her telling at the top of her lungs and pushing us. Hootie put on a mediocre show, not great stage performance, not a ton of energy, but that music did cater to their fan base.
I would have to say not to see them live, it's a waste of money and time. Buy their cd and enjoy it in our house on your own time.
