Fantastic photos Mat. Who would have guessed that you would get to be in the limelight like this? From punker, to vet helper, to clearing tables, to restaurant manager to top notch photographer! Love and miss ya!

Awolnation was the highlight of the night for sure. You could tell he was having a great time and the audience was having a great time, everybody had their lighters and cell phones out, it was an amazing experience.

This was an outstanding concert. So many different bands with so much energy. My favorite was Awolnation...such great performers captivating the entire crowd, The Lumineers, Group Love, M83 were also unbelievable...least favorite was Metric. I'm not positive but it appeared that the lead singer, Emily Haines was lip syncing. Metric was a good concession stand, restroom break...very boring. The crowd wasn't engaged at all. This was my first Deck the Hall Ball but won't be my last. This will be a December tradition for many years!!!! Thanks 107.7

This was my first Deck the Hall Ball and for sure it will be every year from now on :) My favorite bands were The Lumineers and Awolnation, both were very involved with the crowd and seemed to be having a blast. The other bands were also really good but i personally did not enjoy Metric and M83, thats just my opinion, too much techno for me and really they did not look as they were having too much fun... Anyways loved the concert...and i will even bring my teenage kids next year..totally worth it...GOOD JOB 107.7 THE END!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) Ps: I would love to see The Lumineers or Awolnation as the primary bands.....they killed it :)

The Killers on Ticketmaster Karyn reviewed The Killers at Ticketmaster and gave it 1 out of 5 stars. I think you were VERY generous with the 2 stars - I was there and it was painful to try and stay till the end and you know how everyone always wants an encore ?? I was grateful there was no encore for this! Section 128 row 12 - great seats, great view of the stage etc- but it turned out to be a total waste of money. I would venture to say the worst concert acoustically in my 50 years of concert going- folks that were happy must have had nothing to compare it to. My ears were bleeding and not in a good way! This was a show we were excited to see VERY excited. The sound was so bad that a person really had to strain and use their imagination to know just what songs were being played at times - sound was all distorted bass to the max, sorry but this party totally sucked!

AWOL was awesome & GroupLove totally surprised me -- both Excellent. I have to agree with Karyn, the sound was HORRIBLE with the exception of M83. They were the only band that had reasonable sound quality. Good lord people LOUDER does NOT equal better (unless you're trying to cover up something). I was on the curve, just off from the sound board folks and my portable dB Meter on the smart phone was in the 108 range for most of the samples I took. I personally like Metric but it was the most ridiculously loud band of the night IMO. My kids and their friends had a great time but it should have been better. In this day and age, get the sound right boys and girls -- that's pretty much what we're there for after all!
