Re: New date: August 20, Rahway NJ Free show

njsoul, frankly I find your comments to be quite harsh. Did it occur to you that not many people were standing because they didn't want to be obnoxious to the people sitting right behind them? That's why I didn't stand until the encore. And did you happen to notice that there wasn't an open floor, b...

Re: June 22nd - Bowery Ballroom NYC

Sad Daydream - what tour(s) did you see them on? Certainly the last couple of years they have mixed up the setlists. But as recently as early 2013 they were doing the same set every night, with the only variations coming in the 2-song encore.. I saw them twice in NYC before Dan left and the sets we...

Re: June 22nd - Bowery Ballroom NYC

I am glad this show was good. However, one of the things I always loved about SA is how they switched up set-lists. In the past I have seen them twice within the same week, and the sets were half different from one another. I wish I opted to go to this show instead of BB (I know, I know, I've whined...

Re: June 20, 2015 Brooklyn Bowl

After last night I am digging the new songs even more. Totally cannot wait to hear the new album. I'll add some photos and comments to the Bowery thread tonight. I'll say for now that the setlist was exactly the same. That's another reason I skipped last night, it looked like they are sticking to t...

Re: June 20, 2015 Brooklyn Bowl

Additionally, the current rendition of SA half feels like a cover band I never wanted it to feel that way. When Dan left I was majorly bummed, but I still have supported the band, and I will continue to do so as far as new releases are concerned. But this BB show has left a bitter (sweetheart) tast...

Re: June 20, 2015 Brooklyn Bowl

...the sound was TERRIBLE. I could barely hear Dave's vocals and all I heard was Justin's guitar. While this would not have fully solved the problem, Justin's guitar was a huge detriment, both in terms of volume and sound. The clean tones worked well, but when he was distorted (which is most of the...

Re: June 20, 2015 Brooklyn Bowl

Interesting - I appreciate the clarification. I wasn't up front until SA, and all I saw was the guitarist giving the bassist the finger and dirty looks. I didn't realize he was merely reacting to the bassist's antics. But now that you mention it, the bassist WAS making those gestures. I saw him babb...

Re: June 20, 2015 Brooklyn Bowl

I was extremely disappointed. The sound was awful. Someone was shouting "The sound is shit! You can't hear the vocals", and he was absolutely right. The lead guitar was overbearing - it was twice as loud as the rest of the band. Dave is one of my favorite singers, so not being able to hear him was a...

Re: 2013 Feb. 10th - Lincoln Theatre, Raleigh, North Carolin

Not really, and this is coming from someone who has taken a few hundred shots a night too... The proliferation of devices with photo-capabilities has made this problem worse, not more acceptable. This is a fair point, I suppose. However, as far as respecting the band's wishes, I certainly would do ...

Re: 2013 Feb. 10th - Lincoln Theatre, Raleigh, North Carolin

That lady came up to me, tapped me on the shoulder, and said 'no video'. The funny part? I didn't take a single second of video! Granted, I was taking hundreds of still shots. I thought it was weird; in this day and age where everyone has a camera or smartphone, I would think it needs to be expected...
