    The seven best things about attending an extremely undersold concert at the Gorge.

    -The line for the John is as short as the line for $4 water.
    -You see the same people over and over and begin to feel like family.
    -You spend hours thinking of bands that you'd rather see than Incubus.
    -Leaving early's not an option, because you feel bad for the last band.
    -You can roll down a the amphitheater's hill all you like without worrying about running into people.
    -Naps
    -Getting out of the parking lot is easier than getting out of Ikea. 

    I've been to a good number of Gorge shows in my day, but none of them were as empty as Download 2007.

    I'm guessing you weren't there, either, so here are a few mp3s from the festival for you to munch on while you sit on the $66 dollars you didn't spend on a ticket to see Modest Mouse, Incubus, PUSA, and others.
