The weather was Cool with slight rain but who cares it was an indoor event.. I wore Jeans shirt and casual shoes. Wear comfortable shoes, you might be stuck standing the whole time.

This event was Oingo Boingo minus Danny Elfman. I was skeptical about who would be filling in as lead singer but the guy (SORRY can't remember his name now) was actually pretty good for the role. I recommend this event if you need your Boingo fix!

Like most bands they didn't start until almost 2 hours later than what was listed on the ticket. But when they got started it was a blast, granted Danny is the "man" but the stand in did a real good job and even hit some of those Elfman high...continued
