Crowdsourced: The Killers at Bren Events Center
The Killers did their thing at a sold-out Bren Events Center in UC Irvine last night, a fairly small venue for such a big act. I wasn't there (was at Yeah Yeah Yeahs at the Fox Theater in Pomona, and have yet to master the art of bilocation), but you were. And you had some things to say about it, so enjoy this round-up of tweets from the show. (All creative spellings/selective capitalization are courtesy the individual Twitterers.) Response was uniformly positive to the Killers themselves, but these are always way too harsh on opening bands.
@noahkrueger Killers at Bren kicked ass. Best part: a girl through up near stage, Flowers stopped the song ti see what the commotion was about.
@krupali UCI Bren Center is the WORST concert venue in my 20 year concert going experience--oh and The Killers have the crappiest opening acts #fb
@mmvinnyt Wow I can't believe the killers is going to play at the bren. Such a small venue. How awesome!
@Bujjo In line with 5000 students for The Killers concert at the Bren. Go Eaters! http://yfrog.com/09qhuoj
