The Concert Thread


Recommended Posts

Monday I saw Citizen, Drug Church, Glitterer and Floating Room. FR and Glitterer were pretty good. Drug Church blew away everyone. They're tighter than ever. Last time I saw them was 2017 and they're insanely good live. I'd say even better than the recordings. Citizen wasn't sounding too good. I saw them during Youth and EIGTH album cycles and enjoyed them live but they sounded kind of weak and lifeless. Drum parts were different live. The brothers didn't seem that into it. Maybe COVID is getting to some touring artists. The tour actually didn't finish due to positive cases, which I saw happen with a few tours last week. Last night I saw Lawrence and they were really good and play as an 8 piece band. Both were at TLA in Philly which is definitely one of the worst venues. They're still overcrowding and it's pretty uncomfortable. I guess they couldn't afford to turn the AC on for a couple hours for 2 shows that we're almost sold out. /s

The only good thing is vaccine cards/negative tests are required and you have to wear a mask at all times. But that place definitely sells more tickets than fire code should allow which is really frustrating.

I'll be the grandpa for a moment...am I the only one who doesn't like big shows like that? Like, sure great lineup, like holy fuck, but I don't want to travel for what ends up being 5 days. 

I’ll be the super grandpa for a moment and say that big shows like that sound awful and 99% of those bands are fucking horrible.

You're not alone. I don't have the energy/patience to run around from stage to stage anymore. This is a one day fest. 12 hours, three stages, apparently. Most of the bands I want to see definitely won't have more than a 25 minute set, before I have to run to the next one. 

tldr - I'm old and lazy, and this show would inconvenience me greatly.

I'll echo and extend that Grandpa sentiment...shows and line-ups like this are more of a pain in the ass than anything else. Especially if that many bands are going to be crammed in during a single day and across two stages. 

At least something like Furnace Fest '21 had that many bands...maybe more but spread out over three days and across three stages. And it was run almost perfectly. 

(And nice touch to whomever edited in ETID w/ Rome in there...LOL...)

That’s the joke! Glad you found it.
