Yes. We are the worst place to perform, and possibly the worst place to see a show. What is really sad is that the venue is so beautiful, but the crowd is so drunk and annoying that it makes it impossible to watch. I was in the front row (I came very early), and had to abandon my spot because of a pummeling by several crowdsurfers. I figured it would be better watching from a bit further back, but when ben started his amazing acoustic set--everyone started talking. Once again, shame on us St. John's...

I agree that the crowd at Pinestock 2001 was a little rowdy, but there were no topless girls or beer bongs. All the alcohol was confined to the beer garden. I don't understand why people are saying such horrible things. The group that sponsors Pinestock did a great job for such a large crowd. Ben was awesome and it saddens me that he would never come back to SJU/CSB. I was a Harper fan before the concert, but now I am completely in love with him. I do want to apologize for any offending actions by students or guests of the students at the concert.

since that last one is fucked up, and you can't add hard returns, i'll edit this one.

jonnie, i only saw one topless chick though, and let me tell yah, you got some nasty looking women at st. ben's.
carl didn't even mention the sickest part about the whole ordeal, 2 girls pissing during ben's set. i'd be more proud of my high school diploma than a degree from there, that's for sure. i've seen 8 ben shows, and that was the worst i've ever seen, period. hope you guys enjoyed it, cuz he won't be back. i have friends that have graduated from there, and they told me to expect a dumb, shitty, drunk crowd, guess i had higher hopes.

Dear Carl,
I did attend that show and I did not see any topless girls or beer bongs, so I do know what concert you went to. I don't know if you are exaggerating to make our university look bad or what. Yes, it was a little rowdy for a Ben Harper concert, but don't put down our whole university because of the few bad apples that attended. Once again, Carl Ryan, you suck.

This show was insane. All i can say is disrespectful. The worst crowd i have ever seen at a Ben Harper show. Beach Balls, Beer Bongs, Topless Girls, Mosh Pits, and crowdsurfing were part of the environment on saturday at Pinestock 2001! Jack Had a killer set also. Once again, St John's, you suck.
