Ozzfest was held this weekend at the Hyundai out in the IE and at Coors down in SD. At the LA show there were two technical difficulties that caused power outtages in the sets of Avenged Sevenfold and Atreyu. After the jump see video from backstage right after the power went out with Avenged asking the filmmaker "is Avenged the next Iron Maiden?" -- referring to the infamous Ozzfest moment last year when Sharon Osbourne allegedly sabotaged the British metal gods.

The kids seemed to like Ozzfest this year. arc_the_first (who has some good pics wrote):

We eventually meet up again, and Peter notices that a random woman has Egyptian hieroglyphics on her arm. If you know anything about Allen, you've probably already figured out what happened next. So Allen walks over to the woman with the hieroglyphics on her arm:

Allen: "Hi, Jennifer."
ApparentlyJennifer: *looks at him funny* "uhh...hi...do I know you?"
Allen: "Nope, I just read the tattoo on your arm"
Jennifer: "Holy crap! do you realize that you are only the second person I've ever met who could actually read hieroglyphics?"

yes, Allen is crazy like that. No, he was not hitting on her, he's just like that sometimes.

Black Label Society sucks, so we go get some water.

it was one of the only times in my life where i almost cried i was so happy and content. it was the most magnificent feeling i have ever felt. ever. so yeah, the quote of the day was "is that water or is that piss?!" i thought it was just random at first...but then suddenly...it became rather relevant later....... a couple of drunk girls pissed on the ground. they just pulled down their pants, squatted, and pissed...and it was STADIUM seating!!! so crystal's mom reported them to the security guard and they go hauled off and one of them got arrested.

but when avenged sevenfold came on stage, i just went F***ING NUTS!!!!!! i was jumping around, screaming like crazy, head banging, had my rock fists up, yelling all the words to the songs. it was so awesome. i was just going absolutely insane. it was the best.
