Thanks to Tapperob
Just got back. Very nice opening show. Great, historic venue. Phil was cooking during the Second Set.
Do you guys work for the band? Here are my comments from the Other folder.
No other way to put it, that was weak fucking sauce last night, and at over a C note, it's not acceptable.
A lot needs to change.
First, the sound inside the venue was shit! Muffled, no volume, half of Russo's kit was inaudible. you only heard Phil's low end, so he stayed there and just thumped. JK was thin. Jeff had nice sound from his keys, but the B3 had no punch in the house. I've been in this room a lot, and never heard the sound so bad. Phil, DBTs, Trey all sounded fantastic. Same house system. Lame. Can't be same foh engineer as the Phil run. take a walk around. Sheesh.
Phil needs to come out from hiding by his damn amp and lead this band, not just when he's singing, our rescuing a train wreck. Take control when Bob, the student driver, is headed straight for the sewer treatment plant. Or give the keys to John. Otherwise he stands next to Bob like he's in fucking diapers being fucked with by an over the hill 70 year old dominatrix. Grow some balls and take the remote away from grandpaand turn off the Wilford Brimley show.
I thought the first set had some moments, but my God, the second set was sponsored by Ambien. They should have handed nee a C note on the way out, not gummy bears.
No, I do not work for the band, and I admit that after Born Crossed Eyed, the show came to a screeching halt, but the sound where I was had no issues. The people all around me were dancing all night and every single one of us liked the show.
Do you work for some other band?
And if your so pissed off about spending a c-note sell your tickets and listen to a stream. You will be much happier!
Bob killed the 2nd set with that totally lame Watchtower which went NOWHERE......and then they followed it up with So Many Roads which sucked any possible life out of the room.
Agree with Warriors...Although to be fair you could feel the excitement of the band on stage to be there and be playing for us...BUT I think Boston's events might have put a damper on things...which we can totally understand.
Bobs watchtower was awful. Took all the energy right out of the room. Phil tried to help by bringing back the tempo but it was hard. Sound wasn't great. Keith, was I dancing with you second set (I was wearing the purple hat)?
I don't know why some of you people even bother. Be honest with yourselves, you absolutely despise Bobby and no matter what he does you're gonna whine, bitch and moan.
So if you see that Bob is on the bill do us all a favor and fucking stay home.
PS...like Pomo said, if you're all that bent and fixated on a "C-note" you need to understand the fact that you can't afford it -- stay home.
It's not that I don't like Bobby, of course I do. But I also like to be honest about the music and that watchtower was massacred by Bobby. I'm perfectly happy with the $105 I spent to go, had a great time dancing all night and am looking forward to doing it again tonight!
Hey Ross! How was the cookie experience? Good to meet you.
I was at the show and thought the sound was fine. No problems at all, although I do wish that the crowd would listen instead of yakking. As far as the Watchtower, the band was experimenting with a new sound/mood, and I was mesmerized by it. Brought me to a very different place from the norm. Bobby was definitely doing some weird stuff all night long, and when I allowed myself to get into it, it was really fun. Can't wait for tonight. Lots of love.
Well said FRED!
come on people, shit happens..see what happens when you're near 70....
People like warriors are truly better off at home. Just leave and don't come back. Your comments were immature and insensitive, and very unintelligent. Your swearing, your bitterness, your rude put downs of two people who are not only icons in rock music, but also Medicare beneficiaries, left me wondering if you were A). A high school drop out B) on a field trip with a group home for mentally ill or C) the next Ted Kazinski (that's unna bomber). You truly sound angry and disturbed and should not be around large crowds. I also agree that if a c-note (as you call in your desperate attempt to sound cool) is too much, stay home because you cannot afford this form of entertainment.
If I had invested a dime for every time I heard someone say "the Grateful Dead are through - they don't have it anymore" - I'd be rich today. And I started hearing that in 1971. Relax - it's one show.
I went to my first show in 1983....earlier then some and much much later then others. During the next 12 years I developed my likes and dislikes of various quirks of the band members and songs played etc...like anyone else did...but now? My God, we are so blessed to have the opportunity to still hear them play that I get dumbfounded by those who can't get past their own self centered wants instead of being grateful they are still playing the awesome music they do. I don't get it.
All the whining moaning bitching Bobby haters can take that Jack Straw and jam it up their ass!!
GREAT SHOW ! GREAT VENUE ! GREAT BAND !
Deeper then the deepest ocean
Stay awake !!
It's okay to be a discerning, critical listener. Really, it is. Not every show is a great show. It's not humanly possibly, nor is it logical to think it possible. But I certainly do not blame anyone spending their hard-earned money, energy, and time being vocal about any disappointment. They have every right to communicate how they feel.
"Stay home." reminds me of the half-headed nationalism that comes up with "if you don't like it, get the fuck out!" Yeah, okeedoker. Keep taking the shortcuts to thinking.
recent Furthur Capitol Theater show:
Well said Zeno!
The lack of political correctness here does appeal to me, but years of gratuitous Bob slams are grating. When things do turn out well (most of the time in my view), then you get the surprised praise, as though Mr. Weir was a talking dog. A country is multifaceted. You can hate Dayton and love San Fransisco and still be an American. Being a Dead fan and hating Bob is a totally different scenario. This is more like I love America but I hate freedom and I am going to live here anyway and bitch constantly about every freedom loving thing that happens.
I don't know. Warrior doesn't sound out of line to me. Paid for a ticket. Had poor sound in his seat. Familiar with the venue, so they are aware of the potential. The band had an off night, and by many other accounts, they aren't the only one reporting such. Throws in a little humor in the review, but isn't coddling the situation. I'm not reading what is causing the outrage or hurt.
I agree Zeno...it is perfectly okay to be a discerning and even critical listener. But that's not what I read in warriors comments. I read personal attacks against the band members. Critiquing an off night or poor playing is one thing, hateful spewing speech is quite another. Complaints about poor sound are very legit. Keep the personal attacks by calling people names with venom out of it.
I was there in the balcony and thought the sound was fine. First set started on a slow tempo, but picked up, and the set list was fantastic. All songs from the early 70's that could have been played by the Dead when they used to come to the Capitol Theater regularly. Nice nod to the venue.
Second set was a mixed bag, I thought. Choppy playing at times. Interesting treatment of Watchtower, but the audience was not into it. Always nice to hear St. Stephen. I am not a big fan of Mountain or So Many Roads. Still great to be there, and the light show was amazing. Finishing with US Blues was a nice touch on a day when America was feeling under attack again. Until next time . . .
I got more chills listenin' to JGB thru cranked up headphones than any of this show.
