Otep-2 different promo CD's

Second Stage kicked off with American Head Charge. Damn, 8 guys on stage, lead singer firing blanks via shotgun, when A Violent Reaction came on and the sirens blared, unreal.
Caught some promo CD's from Otep, not really my thing, I did get one signed but have since lost it.
Drowning Pool, good show and pit, Bodies was just hitting radio, this was right on the verge of then blowing up. Met Dave and CJ and they signed my CD.
Hatebreed was brutal.
Spineshank I had seen open for Type O before and liked them, great set here. Bought the infamous "Fuck Integrity" pictured and signed, also had a poster signed which has disappeared.
Nonpoint was awesome, I bought Development a few days later. Grabbed a shirt and met the guys, got shirt and sampler signed.
Union Underground was the highlight of the second stage. High energy, one of the best records of nu metal. They went on to open for Manson on Guns, God and Government, but soon after faded away. This band was sick, can't believe they only made it one record.
Taproot was good, but a little calm for Ozzfest standards. I met the singer Stephen Richards after their set and he signed my ticket. Ran into Mike DeWolf later and the little asshole said he was tech and just let without talking to us.
The f.u. shirt was given to me by a guy that was working the fye booth when I met Drowning Pool. He was in a local Cleveland band called Fed Up.
