Unfortunately, I had to work until 6:00, so we didn't get on the road until about 6:45. It was totally packed downtown, so we didn't even get in the gates until 8:00 or so. By the time we got a brat and a beer, the stage area was packed. I hate big crowds like that! Eventually we worked our way about halfway to the stage and found a spot next to a fence so we could get some air. I got to see Adam for about 30 seconds, but the music was pretty good. I don't think I'll be going back to The Block Party again, though.
