A week ago I was at DC9, awaiting the amazing Ponytail's set - an incredible, creative, unique band whose members I am honored to call friends. I don't know what it was about that night - I'd seen them play twice before - but somehow that night everything was perfect. The crowd was absolutely frenetic - when they came on, everyone just exploded in a burst of joyous energy. Nearly the entire audience became a mosh pit! I hadn't been in one in literally ten years, at least. People were just so mind-blowingly happy - it was one of the greatest shows I've ever seen, period.
