  1. Yeah, this Hill Auditorium crowd is by far the drowsiest I have ever seen. I had a bad feeling when barely anyone was sang "hello" or "I am trying to break your heart." Hell, even Jesus, Etc. didn't feel the same. Pretty disappointed in my home state today. It also doesn't help that this tour's tickets presale went live on the Monday immediately following Solid Sound Festival when people were traveling home.
  2. Perth 10 d E A T h b R E a s T ⚄ ⚄ 715 - CR∑∑KS Heavenly Father Towers 666 ʇ Michicant 8 (circle) Flume Creature Fear ____45_____ Minnesota, WI Blood Bank Holocene re: stacks Skinny Love 33 “GOD” Beth/Rest 22 (OVER S∞∞N) The Wolves (Act I And II) ====== Disclaimer, I have never had a chance to see Bon Iver, but I found a good time to finally go. And boy, I did myself good bringing my earplugs, but the amplifiers that had no reason to be there still shook and rattled my entire body all night. The performance astonished me. I think most Bon Iver fans would at least hold a sacred spot for the song that catapulted him to mainstream fame (Holocene) and a tender heartbreak rumination (re: stacks) and the song spread by word of mouth through everything (Skinny Love); I personally consider myself a modest casual that admires. However, I find it frustrating that when I'm standing in the first 10 rows of the concert, quite an audible majority of this crowd is talking, through Holocene, and re:stacks, and the first four measures of Skinny Love. I've seen The National, Father John Misty, Wilco, and Sturgill Simpson (the rowdiest and drunkest by far), but maybe I'm getting old, or I just live in a city that sucks. How do you consciously buy tickets to a soul/folk/rock act, and talk through one of the quietest and tenderest songs in the act? How do you get up in the morning after talking to your friend loudly about your other friend's wedding through re:stacks? Even as an admirer, I felt they heavily stacked the second set with barn burners, and the crowd just chatted through it. I hope Bon Iver makes a Metal Machine Music.
  3. I haven't posted in a while, but I'm finally going to one of these after a lack of conflicts. My name is Leon. Hope to meet some VCers. Please say hi, because in real life, I'm too fracking shy.
  4. Finally saw a non-festival hometown show (out of towner here). I don't think I'll ever shake off the miserable feeling of hearing people talk during opening act, especially in the front, then pretend and chat with the front band between songs as if they cared. I did appreciate the Chicago enthusiasm and the heavy leaning toward Being There, especially with Sunken Treasure and The Lonely 1. They kind of blazed through the encore. My sister and I had a pretty good time. She even got her first setlist, then one of the people next to her started to pester her to sell the setlist starting from $20 to $100 and would not relent as if to also insult her as not a fan. This was really uncomfortable for both of us. Still not sure how we feel since we had a hard time shaking this off after saying no, multiple times. Other than that, I really enjoyed front row seats that allowed us to see the cleaniness of Nels's fingernails while he played Impossible Germany.
  5. Orchestra Pit AAA 2 seats. I think this is fine.
  6. The album should incite laughter with its sober yet morbid take on maturity (or lack thereof). I think you lose a significant amount of the punch of the album if you don't hear the humor. Could you backhand slap us a bit harder, please? If not, provide fruitful or blunt points as you've mentioned such as "I hate their band name", "I don't like nasally singing voice", or "why would you combine sincerity and absurdist projection, that's stupid." Otherwise, here's some directions to go home.
  7. People were definitely chatting in the front rows during William Tyler, and pretty loudly. That really disappointed me, but the Hill's sound wasn't super this time around unlike 3 years ago and 11 years ago. But, most of the chatter died down once Wilco took stage.
  8. Sure, I'll take the bait for $2000, Alex. I need to earn my pretentious hipster cred, so I will see them Friday even though I have been seeing them live about close to once a year, which comes nowhere near Bböp's attendance record. But, whatever.
  9. Just spotted this in the comments (which are now up) on the Youtube stream. pugghead: Jeff Tweedy please Jason Molina yourself. Not sure if (s)he's really bad at trolling or if (s)he's just really bad at respecting the dead and the living.

  11. So, might there be a relation between camera changes and the sync issues?
  12. No, they have multiple cameras. I remember them changing the view to Glenn during Art Of Almost. They've been using this camera ever since they started trying to fix the audio/video syncing issues.
  13. No, I mean what I say. It could be worse is a fallacy that really gets on my nerves. Yes, your predicament is less dire than other blights, but that doesn't mean you're not entitled to your gripes nor does it mean you should settle. And yes, great setlist so far. How many more Summerteeth songs tonight? 0 or 1?
  14. You all are right: it could be worse. You could not be complaining.
