Here's Joseph Popiolkowski's review of the Goo Goo Dolls' show at Darien Lake in JulTo be honest, it was my first time seeing a concert at Pier Six, but it won’t be the last. Not only is the venue impressive, but last night the weather matched it, with a cool breeze coming off the water.

Then the bands took the stage and raised the temperature a few notches. The Spill Canvas from Sioux Falls, S.D., was the opener and they played a tight, 30-minute set that included two new songs, "Dust Storm" and "Our Song," and ended with fan favorite "All Over You."

I'll admit that I'm a huge fan of the group and have seen them four or five times in the Baltimore area and each time they seem to get a little better. Touring with Switchfoot and a veteran band like the Goo Goo Dolls definitely agrees with them

Unexpected for me was Switchfoot. I honestly didn’t know a lot about the band and someone had told me going in that I'd recognize two or three songs. The band from San Diego, Calif., was terrific. The group played for 45 minutes and continued the strong pace set by The Spill Canvas. One highlight from Switchfoot was its cover of Tom Petty’s "I Won’t Back Down." It sounded even better than Petty, and the group rocked it out.The Goo Goo Dolls clearly know how to put on a show and the group did not disappoint the huge crowd. I'm not sure the attendance, but it looked close to full. When lead singer Johnny Rzeznik said before the third song the band was going to kick it up a notch, it did with "Slide."

Out promoting a new album, "Something for the Rest of Us," the group played some of the new material. "Home," and "As I Am," have the potential to be hits. The Goo Goo Dolls didn't leave out some of its biggest hits, either. The band filled the show with "Name," "Iris," "Black Balloon," and closed with "Broadway."Just a great night of music, and the atmosphere could not have been better. “It all sounds very strange to people who’ve never been on a film set.

“There’s a group of people on one side of the camera and it’s all about lighting, angles, sound and getting your lines right.”
