It's been awhile since we've had one of these threads.  So without further ado.
 
 Could you please bring this show to DC.

Title: Re: Hey Seth

big enough that they could sell out a three night stand easily at the 930 club.
 
 please, do not book them at nation, or lisner, or constition hall. that's just cruel!
 
 and if there was a forum presale (i know, presale is a dirty word, but if its just for forum members, then its not so dirty), that would be fantastic.

New Order in DC would be amazing. It's been years since they have played here...wasn't 1993 the last time? God, I would love to see them (I know, I know, everyone says they suck live, but check out the Finsbury Park 2002 DVD and maybe you'll reevaluate). I would just love to hear them do a few Joy Division songs. Of course, I'll get to see them at Coachella too, but a headlining set would be really amazing.

Post by: kosmo vinyl on March 02, 2005, 10:15:00 am
There is much buzz in blogland about the new New Order, and it's been forever since they have done  shows in the US.  I'd go because it's a great combination of two musical movements best artists.  But, in the end any from the DC area that would want to see them would head to NYC... I'll be looking for a ride in that case   ;)

And they could all play "Velouria" together...and it would be nice.  They could probably charge more if they had a Rivers v. Frank Black mud wrestling match between sets.  I'd love that, especially if Frank Black dressed like this:  Frank Black (http://www.centraldelcoleccionista.net/wwf/terremoto.jpg) , leaving Rivers with this:  Rivers (http://austinwm.club.fr/HTLM/Photos/I/IRS/IRS_-_Lawrence_Michael_Rotunda_03.jpg)

We don't have enough TourVote data on New Order to project attendance numbers, but what there is indicates a very hard-core fan base (i.e., a higher-than-normal likelihood that self-described fans will actually show up at the gate).

What would be neato is a Forum Mixtape Live show... Off the top of my head the line-up could be something like this.
 
 Washington Social Club
 The Features
 Splitsville
 Cartel
 De Novo Dahl
 Big Meanie
 Pharmacy Prophets
 Your Pal
 Dutch Cousins
 Honeychuck
 Abbey Vain
 Exit Clov (acoustic in the backbar)
 
 I'm sure there are other staph bands and local groups that have been overlooked, enough I'm sure for a sidestage show at DC9.
 
 Now in a perfect world, this show would be a kickoff for a Playtone Records Cavalcade of Stars style tour, called "Take Action Against Bad Music", for those band ready to hit the road.

Kosmo: That would be a dream line-up; and in the spirit of "local" - since they're fan favs, really great guys and creative musicians/lyricists - could we add Evenout and Justin Jones?

Are all these local bands?? I'm suprised Phaser, Carlsonics and Monopoli were left out..they seem to be well liked by the DC locals...
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: kosmo vinyl on March 03, 2005, 11:33:00 am
These are not all local bands, The Features & De Novo Dahl are from Nashville and Splitsville is from Baltimore. As I said the list was off the top of my head and does reflect what I like, but also what other forumites prefer.  I added The Features because they are a national band with a buzz they would draw in people that don't follow the local scene.  Plus, their CD is damn fine and getting better and better with repeated listens.  All the bands you mentioned were bouncing around in the cranium just not at the forefront.  It could easily become a two night festival when you start adding in those other bands as well as The Frauds, Starbelly and Cliff Hillis.

I had never heard of these guys, so I went to their website and found some quotes they have in their "press" section:
 
  The Washington Post (Washington DC)
 ??evenout is right on top of the hard-yet melodic rock wave that??s dominating radio these days??
 
 The Washington Times (Washington DC)
 ??evenout??s sound is very much in tune with modern pop tastes?
 
 Charlottesville Hook (Charlottesville, VA)
 ??evenout is a harder-than-thou hard rock group, with the vocal kicks of a Chris Cornell prodigy, but also with some pop stylings to bring in the chicks.?
 
 Guitar.com
 ??[Drown Inside] Produced by Steve Haigler (Fuel, Pixies), the band lays down some very radio friendly fare, which is probably why they're getting airplay on some of the mid-Atlantic's largest rock radio stations?
 
 sounds right up my alley!
Title: Re: Hey Seth

They're chick magnets, just like you, Guiny, and Sonick.
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: Bartelby on March 03, 2005, 05:49:00 pm
Yeah, but even chicks can hear.  
 
 Hoya:  You might like them; they do a HUGE range of stuff from love-lorn vocals with acoustic guitar only to some Velvet Revolver-sounding, heavy-on-the-drums rock. ..and they vary their setlists too depending on mood and venue.
 
 BTW:  I'm never totally grossed-out by bands - even if I don't like their sound - I still respect them for having the courage and vision to go for their dreams.  
 
 Of all the sour-pusses on this forum who HATE some bands, I'm always curious which posters can read music or play an instrument or sing.  It takes brass ones to stand up in front of an audience and perform; 'cause one is vulnerable to ridicule in so many ways.  I  have studied music, and play the guitar and flute and sang in various choruses and choirs - but I have HORRIBLE stage fright, so I really admire anyone who can do it.  Just my thought for the day...(No jokes about Jethro Tull cover bands either; but I'm still lookin' for one...)

I would like you to get The Panic Channel for the 9:30 when the get around to tour. They would rock the place out. Also, get lots of good show for Merryweather this years to show "those" people that they should leave the place like it is.

i was there in 03 and i thought the sound wasn't very good.  i am sure it's better than basketball arenas, but i wasn't at all impressed with the place when i went.  i've never been to bender, i loathe DAR and i haven't been to the patriot center in years.
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: bearman🐻 on March 15, 2005, 05:54:00 pm
Guess I have a lot of fond memories of the Aragon, and I'm a sucker for any place that makes you feel like you're at a rock show in Morocco. The turrets are very cool, and if you know where to stand sound isn't an issue. The Pixies were great there, I had plenty of room around me even though the shows were sold out. The Aragon certainly was an awesome venue for other bands I've seen like Sugar and Catherine Wheel. Sugar in particular were great at killing the sludgy sound quality.
 
 However, the Aragon and the Beastie Boys are responsible for making my ears ring for four days straight back in 1992. The bass was just unreal...back then it was a horrible place to see a show. But they have done wonders to change that overall.

Yeah...the only show I saw there was in 93 (primus and the melvins). The sound really WAS horrible (same as DAR, maybe worse). I'd be interested in hearing how they made it better. Did they tear the place down and rebuild from scratch?
 
 My grandmother used to go to dances there, btw...when it really was a ballroom.

The Aragon certainly was an awesome venue for other bands I've seen like Sugar and Catherine Wheel. Sugar in particular were great at killing the sludgy sound quality.
 
 However, the Aragon and the Beastie Boys are responsible for making my ears ring for four days straight back in 1992. The bass was just unreal...back then it was a horrible place to see a show. But they have done wonders to change that overall.

Basically it boils down to putting some gigantic sound-absorbing mats towards the ceiling. The 9:30 Club did something similar when they moved in. Primus (whose sound emphasizes bass) in 1993 would have been awful, much like the Beastie Boys were. Too much reverberation and even with a packed house the bodies can't absorb it all. I won't say the Aragon is perfect, but it's such a dramatic improvement that regular concert-goers in Chicago noticed the changes immediately. I am a huge fan of the old theaters...the Warfield in SF, the Aragon and Riviera in Chicago, etc. There's a lot of character and even though the acoustics aren't always pristine, it's still more interesting than a hockey rink or something like that. Even Kim Deal commented on how cool it was to play a venue that had so much character. My favorite thing about the Aragon though is the day care center on the first floor :-) I wonder how the kids managed to nap when the Pixies were sound checking through "Tame".

Hey Seth Part Deux...
 
 I see the New York Dolls are doing more shows... Any chance they'll be touring outside of the Big Apple?
 
 And since I'm feeling nostalgic any rumblings about a Stooges tour?  I was going to the Motown show until someone in Ohio pulled the plug a few summers ago.

From weezer.com
 
 ...getting many many questions about possible other tour dates not seen in the current confirmed tours. The basic answer for both North America and the rest of the world is "YES", more tour dates are currently being planned, and they will be announced when known. But there is no solid info as to where specifically the shows will be at this point, so your questions about your city or country cannot be answered at this point.

Hey Seth,
 
 What's the deal with tickets for some shows (specifically, Bright Eyes and Snow Patrol) going on sale at Tickets.com before they are announced on the main 9:30 site?
 
 Is this a band decision? Or, a club decision?  If it is the latter, what is the thinking behind it?
 
 Thanks.

we don't just put everything on sale as soon as it's booked or it would just be too much
 
 but sometimes the bands ask us to get it going before we have our onsale so they can offer it to their fan clubs etc

 Hey Seth, when are you going to book that Metal Chicken band?  I've seen their video many times on TV of late...they're sort of a cross between Slayer & Gwar.  I'm not sure of the name of the song, but it's something like 'chicken fingers'.  I suspect all the bboard metalheads already know it.

OK, so here's a classic situation...

I would probably skip them if it was $50.
 
   they will probably come around eventually, either this winter or next spring anyway.
 
    I doubt it would sell out for that much money.
 
 edit: but then again, I have seen them more than 10 times so perhaps its not too much for some.(seeing other responses)

Didn't Fatboy Slim sell out at $35 or $40 earlier this year? I'd think Chemical Bros. with a much smaller tour and rare-r appearences would command $10-$15 more per ticket.

I think it's a close call... the tickets for the Ultra New York thingy are $55 with fees in the presale and they have Oakenfold, Tenaglia and Morillo on the bill too....That *is* 5,000 capacity, but I'm surprised it hasn't sold out yet. If it's on a weekend, perhaps enough people would be willing to pay that amount(all presuming its a live show - not a DJ set of course). Personally though, if I had to choose...I would skip a DC show and see them in NY.
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: bearman🐻 on August 02, 2005, 09:58:00 am
Seth, book away...do it up. You'll sell the place out, make the band happy, and make yourself happy. Most of all, you'll make other people (who have the money) happy. Nobody has to spend the dough if they don't want to. But methinks to see them at the 9:30, plenty of people will.

Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: bearman🐻 on August 02, 2005, 10:44:00 am
I can see people paying $50 (I think Seth said $50-$55)...that is definitely the upper end of the scale that I think most die-hard fans would want to pay. But I still think there are enough people who will pay that much to make it worthwhile for the band and for the club. If it doesn't sell out, it will come very close to it. Seeing the Chemical Brothers at Coachella this year was easily the best thing that whole weekend, and it would be pretty mind blowing to see them back at the 9:30.

Everyone probably knows that I'd be so friggin' game for Echo...especially if they play "Do It Clean" this time. That has been dropped from the setlist for the past few years sadly. And as long as Ian doesn't pull an HFStival on us. Makes me appreciate all the more that I saw them do such a great show in Philly earlier this year.

Meanwhile I'd LOVE them to be here on a Friday or Saturday...I haven't seen them since a show at Nation several years back.  And I want to enjoy, have some cocktails, sing loudly....and yes, we must get "Do It Clean" back on the setlist, dammit!!  Actually, a focus on Crocodiles and Porcupine generally would thrill me to no end (The Cutter, Rescue...very important songs!).   ;)

yeah, i agree. $50 for a show is really really too much as a base price. even oakenfold hasn't charged over $40 for his 930 shows. i think the show at nation a few years ago was $25 or $30, but i don't remember exactly.

Maybe a $60 ticket price will keep the 'Chemical Brothers' from becoming just a social occasion. That is worth the extra cash.

I'm willing to make a trade. See Best Week Ever thread, that's where I'll be.

i would totally love to see them here in dc! they might not be able to make a sizeable dent at the club capacity though and be better off playing the black cat. but for their music, i think it would sound much better at the 930.

you dont think?  if you got some other talent to come along, perhaps make an event out of it, you could certainly sell a good amount of tickets. especially if it was a one off show (as is seems to be the case here)

They usually have a lot of stuff to look at. At Coachella it was probably one of the best visual presentations I've ever seen. Very bombastic. When they opened with "Hey Boy, Hey Girl" the place just exploded. It was incredible. Probably one of the most memorable moments at a concert, you just simply had to be there to believe it.

Heck even Charlie might go out for this one   :D
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: sonickteam2 on September 13, 2005, 03:30:00 pm
I would like to add this to the Hey Seth thread, even though it was gone over in the FAQ.
 
  Apparently you can buy tickets to Sonar shows at the 930 club box office, but not vice versa.
 
   i think this should definitely be looked into. I know I for one, decline going to many many 930 shows because i dont want to pay $76.50 for 3 $20 concert tickets.  and with the price of gas, its hardly cheaper to drive down there.
 
   since Sonar and 930 are related, i think it would be great to offer 930 tickets in Baltimore with the $1 service charge.  Especially because there is NO tickets.com outlet in Baltimore period.

Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: kosmo vinyl on September 20, 2005, 07:57:00 am
my thoughts exactly... historically the moderators here have been hands off, on the rarest of occasions removing the odd thread or post, setting ground rules, etc.  what you are asking for is that someone to  come aboard and moderate the forum to your liking.  if what you find here troubles you so, why come back?  is it that hard to just scroll past posts that bother you?  
 
 this forum has been around since 1997 and for the most part self moderating.  it is also one of the best music oriented forums i've found, which is why i'm here on a daily basis.  most forums i've checked out make my head explode.  the regulars here are well informed about a wide variety of music, the discussion is intelligent and witty.  
 
 yes it can get catty and sucks is tossed about on a farily regular basis.  non musical topics appear and disappear quickly, but without some diversion this forum would get stale.  
 
 i'm glad the forum is lively, there was a period when the forum would  only have one or two posts on a daily basis.

Do you honestly think this board should be self-policeing?
 
 When a certain pretty but naive 15-year old girl posted her photo on this website, a woman would have been tuned to the fact that this is a major internet NO-NO for kids...and immediately deleted it...and yes, there are a few threads that are wayyyyy beyond appropriate that should be deleted.

Apparently they changed singers again since the album was cut but the touring singer also plays saxaphone. It should be interesting. The new album is great. Not so much downtempo or trip-hop. They are evolving a bit.

did someone just use the word "thy" in a phrase and then whine about being condescended to?  pretty funny.
 
 i personally think it would be hilarious to listen in on a conversation about fisting in galileo.  in fact, it might make the night.
 
 as for my 15 year old daughter, her existence would be more shocking to me than her activity on the internet.  but that would probably be because i would anticipate the reality of the internet in her life and deal with it.  censorship doesn't protect kids.  the law says kids can't drink until 21, but most have been wasted by 13.  how many boys under 18 have had porn under their mattresses through the decades notwithstanding laws to keep it out of their hands?  i'd be more worried about teaching my kid how to handle herself under certain circumstances than trying to keep the circumstances away from her, because while the former is no doubt very hard, the latter is impossible.
 
 that's just general commentary.  i can't speak to a specific incident that may have happened on this or any other site that i don't know about.  but it sounds like if something did happen, the gentlemen took care of it.
 
 finally, i'll admit any day that i am a bit precious when it comes to the first amendment.  hell, that's something i'd go to war about if it were threatened.

Definitely a nice idea. Or on a Sat. night? Also if doors could open slightly earlier? (Not rush hour, just 9 pm doors? I'm old.  :D  )
 
 I still would like to see a miles per dollar spent method. Tough to implement, I know. But it might make people keep quiet about service charges.
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: Jaguar on January 25, 2006, 03:44:00 pm
As much as I like the idea of a regular local band showcase thing, I do not at all like it monopolizing any weekend night. (No pun intended.) That would just cut into seeing nationals way too much when they tour and we are lucky enough to get a weekend date along with hurting those who can't really make it out to a club on work/school nights.
 
 Take them as they fit into the schedule is what I say.
 
 This would also put a lot more of the old club flavor back into the 9:30 Club.
 
 As far as door times, I think they are perfect as they are. Couldn't ask for anything better when you are trying to balance out so many other factors.

Defintely a good point. Okay, scratch my idea. As it is, I don't get to see national acts during the week either.
 I concur, it would bring back some old 9:30 flava.

Post by: kookiemnstr8 on January 25, 2006, 08:40:00 pm
Being too young to remember the old club flavor, I feel like I would have loved it.
 
 I think the Army of Me show was scheduled before a show with late doors, maybe that could keep happening?
 
 I don't want it to take precedence over touring acts, but I think it would be awesome to fit local nights in whenever they could be.

Nope, the term officially used was "hiatus".  In fact, two of the band members play on Rob's new solo album.

Catherine Wheel as we knew them from the past are over. Rob is more like one of the Wheel's cogs.
 
 50 Ft. Monster is another Catherine Wheel off-shoot band but I haven't seen any tours happening for them yet.
 
 Rob's work is kind of to Catherine Wheel as Richard Ashcroft's work compared to The Verve. 50 Ft. Monster is the more rocking side while Rob's is a little more ballady. While I like them both, neither come anywhere close to good old Catherine Wheel.
 
 I was hopeful the other day when I saw Rob working his way east. Hope he plays somewhere either in Baltimore or DC.

Any chance of Editors having a DC show this spring? They're playing Webster Hall in NYC on March 30th and seem to have a big block of dates open after that.

I second this request. [Hearsay Alert] I've heard the Black Cat is trying to book them.

Third that request.
 
 They are too big for Black Cat.  They could easily sell-out the 9:30

I agree, especially if you put them on with an opener who might fill up a few holes.

 I'd much rather have the last two bands without the third, but I will take what I can get happily.
Title: Re: Hey Seth

 problem is that Black Crowes were already booked in this area (All Good Festival) before package was formed, excluding other plays
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: Summerteeth on April 23, 2006, 12:04:00 pm
Thanks alot Seth.
 
 Just to throw out a possibility.  It seems DBT and Randolph are willing to play alone.  Would it be feasible business-wise for the two of them to play Merriweather.
 
 It seems they would draw a crowd not unlike the size of the Roots/Wilco show last year.
 
 Regardless, thanks again.

Two asides:
 
 - They Might Be Giants tonight said 9:30 Club is their favorite place.  Okay, lots of bands say that, but they called out the staff who runs it, saying "in an industry full of weirdos and mean people, the people who run this club are almost downright civilized."

Yeah, we ladies are hooked on hooks.

Hey Seth,
 
 How about a DC date for the acoustic Foo Fighters / Frank Black tour?
 
 The Foo Fighters much anticipated Acoustic Tour kicks off this July! Seven US dates have been announced at intimate venues across the country! A special 8-piece line-up will perform the live premiere of songs from disc 2 of In Your Honor as well as unique interpretations of favorites from the band's entire catalogue.
 
 Joining the band on the second installment of the In Your Honor Tour are special guests Petra Haden on Violin, Rami Jaffee on Keyboards, Drew Hester on percussion and former Foo Fighter Pat Smear on Guitar! Opening acts for these shows will be Timmy Curran in July and Frank Black in August.

Where did you hear about the DC date? The list of dates I've seen don't include DC (at least not yet). East coast dates included Boston, NYC, Chicago, and Philly. I'd love a DC date, and would be even happier with the show at the 930.

I can't be specific, but a friend knows a local DJ who knew all about the last few Foo DC shows.  And it makes sense -- you really think Grohl would skip over DC?

I can't be specific, but a friend knows a local DJ who knew all about the last few Foo DC shows.  And it makes sense -- you really think Grohl would skip over DC? [/b]
Please, oh please, don't let it be another radio-giveaway-only ticket process.  I don't think I can listen to that much DC101 again so soon.

Mrs. Chaz and I went to see Iggy at the club together about a week before her due date with our first.  Good times.....never forget it.  A really happy memory of a great show and us being excited for our little bundle of joy.
 
 Friends that worked at the club at the time made sure we got to sit in the vip area so she wasn't on her feet the whole time.  
 
 But really, what's the big deal about going to a show a week before due date?  Esp. if Mrs. Brennser is ok with it???
 
 Rhett, your notion of like stopping when the parenting begins is pretty funny.  And that's all I'll say about that.
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: Charlie Nakatestes, Japanese Golfer on June 15, 2006, 03:49:00 pm
At nine months, I reckon I'll be bending over backward to please my wife. I know that going to a concert alone (or with her) would not please my wife at that point.
 
 Like I said, if it pleases Mrs. Brennser go right ahead. Viva la difference, I guess.

yea seth, can you make this happen?  there was a small group of fans last night that were led into the club through the backbar and the lady there said we would be able to get our stubs back after the show but they apparently ran out by the time i got to the front door.

Seth wants to be sure that everybody that was at the show who wants a stub knows that in order to get a stub just stop by the box office while it is open and we can give you one.  Also,  if you are from further afield and it would be easier,  just SASE us and we will send you one.  Dig?

no no no, please no warner theater. that was definitely my least favorite dylan show of the past five years. if i'm gonna pay $75, i'd rather see him at the club and not at one of those "should i stand, should i sit, well that person's standing, so maybe i'll stand, but everyone behind me is sitting, fuck, i don't know what i should do" places.

Well...I don't remember anything like that going on around me last time.  I do, however, remember the club being insanely crowded and uncomfortable.  Both shows were fun, but I definitely had a better experience at The Warner. <shrug>

hey seth you gotta get those front fills working consistantly at the 930.  gus says he leaves it up to each band to turn them on.  they should always be on.  they should be bigger.  or maybe angle the lower main stacks more toward the front of the floor.  if you are up front the vocals and any instruments not close by can barely be heard.  thx for your consideration.

Nice work.  If I can be of any assitance, please don't hesitate to ask.  I still have some relations with the Germans and the French, and their assitance in a UN peace keeping force in southern Lebanon is essential to maintain the cease fire and control Hezbollah.
 
 After that's in place, you can turn your attention back to dismantling Iran's nuclear program.  I'm sure you were very close before these silly "distractions" like "hey, can we have sparklehorse at the 9:30??!?"

Nice work.  If I can be of any assitance, please don't hesitate to ask.  I still have some relations with the Germans and the French, and their assitance in a UN peace keeping force in southern Lebanon is essential to maintain the cease fire and control Hezbollah.
 
 After that's in place, you can turn your attention back to dismantling Iran's nuclear program.  I'm sure you were very close before these silly "distractions" like "hey, can we have sparklehorse at the 9:30??!?" [/b]
personally, i'd rather see Sparklehorse than worry about all that Lebanon crap and what not.   come on, we're all getting nuked  one day anyway, can we at LEAST see some Sparklehorse before we go????

Any chance you can get The Mars Volta to play on  10/24 when they're heading south to GA from PA (esp. since they're staying up north when RHCP comes to Pimlico)?  While I'm here, I'll also 2nd the Muse request.

You wouldn't happen to know where they are going to park their unguarded van chocked full of expensive goodies while they're sleeping here in DC/MD?!?

I would seriously love it for placebo to come play in November or December. I know that for most of the fall they're playing with she wants revenge. However, they aren't playing here with SWR though. I'll even wait until the new year to see them. I just think it would be totally rad to finally get to see them.

Hey Seth,
 
 How come my friendly neighborhood Ticketmaster outlet wouldn't sell me a Virgin Festival parking pass?  They told me I either have to do it online (and pay the minimum $14.50 shipping!!!) or buy it at the box office (not terribly convenient, plus I'd kind of like to have the pass in my hands before we get there on Saturday...)

 Take a look at Placebo's current tour plans, and realize their album came out awhile ago, the current US tour plans are already ambitious due to the relatively lack of sales stateside and the limited resources of their US distributor/label, bottom line is that Seth isn't a miracle worker so I'd suggest you make a road trip if you really want to see Placebo, because after the winter euro dates I think you'll be shit out of luck til next album for any US dates.  
 
 Muse is a better possibility, likely for the late winter/early spring.  
 
 Just my humble opinion.

The Dears have already got an Dec 05 show already listed on Ticketmaster. It'd be great to have a DC show at the 930. And while we're at it, why not another show at Sonar?

I don't know what you are talking about. Where are you getting your information? Ticketmaster.com doesn't list anything for The Dears on December 5th. They list one date at the Troubador in CA in October and three dates in Canada. After a couple dates in California, they're touring Europe and then Canada and then they're coming back to the US. The US leg of the tour has not yet been announced and is presumably still being booked.

No, I don't think so. Not in the US anyway. They weren't too big for the club when they opened for The Soundtrack of Our Lives last year. And stole the show, I would add.

LA != DC, thank God. Joe, make up your mind. Are they too big for the 9:30 Club or are they too small for the 9:30 Club? Or do you just have something against them and don't want them to play the 9:30 Club?  ;)

Ah, Darth Ed...I humbly apologize. You are correct. I take back my snarkiness.
 
 FWIW - TM *did* list a Vancouver date for Nov 27 but then dropped it. But now it's on the actual Dears site. It all kinda makes sense...they go east to west through Canada in November and work their way back through the States in Dec in time for their traditional Christmas-week gigs in Montreal.

Pollstar "The Rolling Stones have confirmed a pair of late-October concerts at New York City's Beacon Theatre."
 If they are playing the Beacon, can you get them to come a little further down the coast for a 9:30 show?
 I haven't seen them since the Cap Center in 1981, but the idea of seeing them at the club would be very exciting.
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: TheDirector217 on September 29, 2006, 03:32:00 pm
If my info is correct, those Beacon Theater shows are invite only for Pres. Clinton's 60th birthday.  Besides, they're charging $400+ for front row seats on their tour right now.  So I can only imagine what 9:30 seats would go for.  I should know.  Im going to see 'em in AC.    :D  For my 3rd show in the tour in about a year.  (D.C., Baltimore, now A.C.)  And yes, you hipster fucks biased toward anything remotely mainstream (not all of you), it is worth it.  I'll take their catalog over any of your Village Voice adored bands any day of the week.  
 
 Rolling Stones>>>>Be Your Own Pet, TV On The Radio (they are good, though), or any other lil' indie/hipster band you & SPIN magazine are love with this month
 
 Mick Jagger is the greatest frontman of all time.  Period.  End of discussion.  (I'll give you Robert Plant, but not anything else.  Not even Bono. Much as it hurts me to admit that.)
 
 So with all that said, book 'em Seth.  1500 seats??? @ $275 a pop makes for a 100K+ take each Mick & the boys (before Lisa Fischer, Darryl Jones and 'em get broke off of course.)  For that much, even $300 - I'm there.  Even though I got raped for $250 at Virgin Festival for those VIP seats.  More on that later . . . (On a positive note, thanks for booking The Who, Seth.  That was some priceless shit.)

yeah i'd definitely like to see squarepusher.  i had big plans to see the squarepusher/plaid tour in 01, but that got screwed up when squarepusher dropped the tour.
 04 the tour schedule conflicted with my cross-country drive.
 
 new album = tour? i hope there's at least a dc date if it's not @ 930.
 
 the orb @ 930 again would be good definitely.

oh, and i know it's probably never going to happen again, but:  aphex twin.
 
 that was probably one of the most fun shows i've been to at the club, even if i did work 10 hours that day, then drove 2 hours up there for doors at... 11:30(?), then got home around 6-7 or so..

Another vote for squarepusher. I've probably said this on a couple other threads already but it bares repeating.  His new album is one of the best of the year. It's my favorite since  "Music Is Rotted..."

seth - an opportunity to bask in the sounds of Daft Punk would be utterly delightful.  they might be too big for the club (not that i would complain!) but would make a fine addition to, say, an outdoor festival... (adding squarepusher and/or aphex twin would make the bill irresistable)

 We've been through this already very recently (http://www.930.com/cgi-bin/ubb-cgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=004729;p=190). They played The Ottobar in Baltimore on Nov. 10th, 2003 and DC the night after.
 
 Regardless, Explosions In The Sky would be a nice treat.
 
 Snail booked Eluvium about 2 years ago. Think it was in April. He opened for MONO. That was a great night! (But mostly because of MONO.)

yeah, i saw eluvium open for mono way back in april '05.
 
 sorry to burst your bubble, but eits did not play DC the night after they played the ottobar.  they played first unitarian in philly the following night and in NYC the night before.
 the closest date to DC on that tour was @ JMU in harrisonburg.  if there was a dc date, i would have gone.  i went to both the show at go! room 4 in chapel hill and the show in harrisonburg.
 
 i would have gone to baltimore and philly on that tour as well, but i had some things that kept me from being able to do so.
 
 seriously, the last dc show was 10/05/01 @ the black cat.  i keep telling them they need to play dc again.  hoping for it on this tour.  930 would be great.  i'd really like to see them again in a situation that could close to matching the first time i saw them sound-wise.

i've seen them plenty, it's alright.
 "just up the road" if you live in dc, but i don't live in dc.  i caught them in baltimore in 02 and 04 though.
 
 ..and i'm seeing them 2x in feb in NYC.
 but hey, when's really too much?
 
 ..seriously, though trust me on the no dc thing.  i've been archiving their tour dates and stuff for years.  i got an email from them asking me for a list a while back, so.. hehe

it's prettymuch always a given that i'm driving ~2hrs or ~100 miles for a show... i prefer that be the limit, but i go farther when i have to (or really want to).
 
 when a band skips dc, i'm pissed because i haven't drive EVEN FARTHER.. not because i can't just hop on the metro or drive across town or whatever.

yup i'm a dude, but i cry like a little girl when i don't get what i want (hear that seth?!?).  i can't say those acts are the edgiest/cred'iest out there, but i'm sure their live shows would kick ass (and sell a lot of tickets).
 
 julian, if we can't figure out the NJ vs. VT thing, we could always run off to canada... although i foresee probs with our relationship already.  i can't agree with you (http://www.930.com/cgi-bin/ubb-cgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=009325;p=13#000484), yet you're allowed agreeing with me...  but thanks for the offer   :p

Any chance for a solo Jeff Tweedy show after his Charlottesville date at the end of Jan.(which is the last stop on his tour)?  That show sold out quickly, so there is obviously more demand in the area, and I think the last solo Tweedy show around these parts was in 2001.

 Can I make a request-would it be possible for them to always do an end of year show? I'm guessing 4 nights in a row next year might not be possible, but at least 1 or 2 shows. Start making it an annual event of sorts!

I'll third the Nada Surf idea. One of my favorite bands...though unless they have a new album coming out, I would think they might ba better match for the Black Cat.

There's a slighter costlier solution to all these wish lists but perhaps a bit more practical and would at least get you out of DC for a couple of days is attending  the second weekend of ATP this year which is essentially curated by us, the fans by voting on our favorites with Barry and Helen going out with bids.  
 
 A ton of faves are unavailable (Arcade Fire, PJ Harvey, Shins, and Sonic Youth for example, but others such as Modest Mouse, Sparklehorse, Shellac, The Books, etc have agreed to play).

Just pointing people to an alternative direction to send their wish lists and focus their angst, because as responsive as Seth is/has been there seems to be a tooth fairy-esk quality to this thread and at least with ATP they have a marginally better chance of their wishes coming true.  Shoot me.

Hey Seth... according to the Pogues website, they're touring NY, Boston, Philly and Chicago in March 2007.  Any chance you could bring 'em back to DC? The 2 shows at the Club last year were outstanding and while I do not mind one bit getting on a plane to see the Pogues, I would love 2 more DC shows too!
 
 Pretty please???
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: bnyced0 on January 14, 2007, 10:43:00 pm
OK, I'll stop bucking the trend and put in my own request,  if info below is reliable then perhaps in addition to a  Coachella appearance she could make a pit stop the capital as well?  930 would be nice but any IMP venue would do the trick.

Hey Seth - Could you get something like this setup for us boardies at future shows?  Thanks.
 
 Justin Timberlake Dell Lounge VIP Bar Stools
 
 Here is your chance to feel like you are part of the show! Rest your drink on Justin's stage. A private bar is incorporated into the stage, and your bar stool is a front row floor seat where you will find yourself right in the center of the action. Don't miss your opportunity to be a part of Justin's FutureSex/LoveShow tour!
 
 Tickets $504 via Ticketmaster.
Title: Re: Hey Seth

actually, chutney has touched on something that i've never understood: the club's VIP section is, at certain show, just about empty while the rest of the place is packed.  for certain shows i'd be willing to poney up extra bucks to get a spot in there.  i think it's a shame that some of the best real estate goes unused, such a waste.  co-branding is optional.

 Or if a band is playing multiple nights, it'd be awesome if we could buy combo ticket for both nights that might save us a few bucks. That is probably not feasible though.

Hey Seth,
 
    My wife has accompanied me to numerous alt-country shows that she was at best lukewarm about seeing. Now she is pregnant and due in June, and we'll be going into hibernation for awhile after that. Thus, it would be great to have one show to see that she'd be excited about before our hibernation.
 
    It's not often that she is impressed by a new artist, but Amy Winehouse is one that she is impressed with. Amy appears to have some blank spots on her schedule...5/4, 5/5, 5/10, 5/11. Can you get her at the Club? . Heck, the first two dates are even on my 40th birthday weekend.
 
    I guess an early, seated show might be too much to wish for (because we are pregant and old, repspectively), but since I was wishing...

hey seth - a suggestion for the side balconies: please consider putting another tier of risers (steps, platform, whatever) along the side walls.  on the side balconies during a packed show there is always about 3-4 feet of empty (unused) space between the wall and the backs of the first people along the edge of the upper tier.  those 3-4 feet are unusable b/c you can't see squat.  adding another tier along the wall would make part of that space usable again and afford a few more patrons a decent line of sight.  just a thought.
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: eltee on March 05, 2007, 01:37:00 pm
I'll agree, since I'd like to see when I'm stuck back there, yet, wouldn't it be a little packed? (It's already tough enough to squeeze between the center rail and wall.) It might be hard for people, staph, etc. to get by and I wonder about fire code. Again, I'm all about more options to see a show, so maybe I'm not seeing the "vision".  ;) .

i wasn't recommending anything for the center rail (i.e. above the soundboard) - as you pointed out, it's already packed in enough as it is.  i was talking about the sides.  currently there are 3 tiers.  i'm calling for a fourth, against the wall.
 
 chutney: eh, what ya gonna do.  indeed, unless i'm against the rail i expect to bob and weave for a line of sight between people's heads.  same thing with being more than 10 feet away from the stage on the floor - some tall person is bound to block my view there too.

Okay, apparently I don't know how to use this board properly, but I wanted to say that the 3 to 4 feet of empty space that Sweetcell is referring to on the upstairs balconies is actually neccessary to axis our fire exits.  Putting another step-up there would not pass code and wouldn't be too safe four the club's patrons.
 
 Nice idea though.

 Southern Culture on the Skids is playing at Recher in Towson on 5/18. Any chance of a DC show? I know they don't draw enough on their own to fill up the 9:30 and usually open for someone... maybe you can pair 'em up with some like-minded souls? Or a midweek show?
 
 I just hate going to Recher... and coming home is even worse!  What a haul!

Realistically, i don't think they would play 930. Their tour set is a huge pyramid with a gigantic LED Screen behind the pyramid and then like 2/3 of a wall/fence in front of the pyramid. I think 930s stage is way to small to hold their set alone.
 
 That aside, i second this notion either way! Daft Punk would be the greatest show ever to hit 930. I stand by that statement confidently!

Thanks for bringing such a great festival to the Baltimore/Washington area!  Vfest looks great already, I surely will be there!  I would second Modest Mouse and Daft Punk and add in Girl Talk since he seems to be doing the festival circuit, especially if you plan on having the techno/club tent again.  Im sure it conflicts with a noise ordinance, but would it be possible to run the club tent past the end of the headliner?  I think that would be a fun place to go after the other performances end.

And how about more minimal techno/electro/techhouse and downtempo and less trance in said dance tent?

Hey Seth,
 
 I know my suggestions will probably be a lot different that everyone else, but...
 
 Another night for 3eb, they have an empty date between their Ram's Head and 9:30?
 
 Honda Civic Tour will be in the area June 4th, but they aren't playing on June 3rd.  Cobra Starship was awesome at the Cartel show, and getting them back to the club might be a lot of fun.  (Similiar to how Ram's Head booked Akon despite the Gwen Stefani Tour).  Could team them with their labelmates The Hush Sound who have a very decent draw and haven't played the DC area in a while despite touring with bigger bands.
 
 Just some thoughts, thanks!

 Separately, I'm hoping Nickel Creek is coming back to DC before their final hiatus. Thus far,  they have dates scheduled across the country (openers include Tift Merritt, Jon Brion and Glen Phillips). Once they make their way east, if they could be scheduled at the  9:30 , that would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Hey Seth, I just sat here with my mom trying to find her tickets to see Tony Bennett...If he comes back to town can you see if he'll do a show at 9:30? Oh, and another very special request from her - Bonnie Raitt at 9:30? Please and thanks.

 how soon can we expect a line-up announcement for VFest?  
 
 if you are holding back b/c it's not entirely confirmed, may i suggest releasing a few "big names" that are definites to entice the punters?
 
 as crazy as it sounds, some people (yours truly included) are soon to decide about plans for that weekend.  i recognize that i'm not the average concert-goer, but choices are being made...
 
 p.s. i just read a little about hawtin's live shows... they sound incredible, marvels of modern technology.  please please please see what y'all can do about bringing him to the club!  a dj set would also do quite nicely if the live thing is too big a production.

stupid question.  i have only been to a couple of 930 shows this yr.  a couple of yrs ago you put the front fill speakers in so the people up front can hear the vocals.  almost everytime i am at the 930 those spkrs are not on.  gus always sez it is up the soundman with each band to turn them on.  why can't they be turned on all the time?  why can't the spkrs stacked on the side of the stage have more vocals in them?  it seems like the vocals only come out of the flown spkrs.  people up front always complain they cannot hear the vocals.  don't let me down.

How about if the first 10 folks to get 9:30 Club tattoos get into shows for free for life? Maybe you could require them to have a 3-drink minimum? How cool would that be.  :)

probably not, based on JAMCs' sets last week - pretty melodic and the distorsion was dialed way down compared to back in the day.  i didn't catch SY, but if they've mellowed out at all then merriweather's speakers should live to see another day.

Hey Seth,
 
 Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this, but the shuttle service from the metro to the festival and back again needs to be much better run than last year.  We arrived about at the metro about 1 hour before Kasabian went on stage and there was no shuttle.  The baltimore transport bus gave us a ride there but we had to pay.  When we left during The Who's set (a crime, i know) there was no shuttle to be found.  No signs, and not a single festival employee new anything about it.  Neither did any of the policemen around.  Ended up taking a taxi back to the metro.

Any chance of getting The Electric Soft Parade, Seth?  I'd love to see them, and their current schedule has them wrapping up their US/Canadian tour in New York in mid-June.  It looks like they've got 12 days between then and their next show in the UK.  Pretty please?   :)
 
 Also, I don't know if Idlewild are planning on touring over here or not, but if they do, they'd be awesome.

Didn't they play the state theatre the last few times they came through here?

Azaghal, I think you are thinking of a different band. Or maybe I'm the one who is confussed. I may be wrong but I don't think The Electric Soft Parade have been the way before. Are you thinking of that Doors cover band? This isn't them.

Hey Seth,
 
 I just heard I have to surrender my ticket (for a wristband) to come back for the second day. I know I'm being a crybaby, BUT I have all my tix dating back to Johnny Cash in 1970! I wanna keep my ticket. Is this true?

You've been bitchin for months about Amy Winehouse, she's finally coming within walking distance and you're already moaning about a repeat visit?  Are you being held in a "rehabilitation" facility, house arrest, are your movements otherwise limited?  While for the most part I also like the artists you champion, the whining makes the fanbase look scarier than it actually is.  I want to help you out, if you don't have an ankle bracelet and can actually leave a 40 mile radius I'm willing to foot the bill to the concert of your choice (philly, new york, boston, richmond, charlotte, etc) in this timezone as long you promise NOT to ask for the same artist to come to DC more than ONCE every six months, and no female artist or lead vocalist in a band every nine months.  This is no-shit offer, it just pains me to see all this repetitiveness in your posts.  I can see you're crying out for help.

They had these beautiful commerative tickets for Winter Music Conference this year, and at the gate I thought they'd just pull off the tab of the ticket which was made just for that purpose to keep the pristine ticket intact, but there were two sadistic freaks at the gate just ripping the entire ticket in half and waving people in, I too have been collecting tickets for quite awhile and I was shitting my pants to see these particularly attractive tickets being destroyed, so I balked and they weren't going to let me in so I sulked on the side until someone with a brain showed up and asked what the problem was and the knumbskulls at the gate were reprimanded for not following the directions they were initially given about ripping off the stubs only.  Moral of the story?  Acting like a baby can work in isolated circumstances for things that really don't have any relevance. I kept my souvenir in that instance and I'm sure VF organizers will do the right thing here.  There are so many options, like taking a marker to the back of the ticket so it can't be reused but otherwise kept intact, etc.

Post by: cfbrawner on May 07, 2007, 04:09:00 pm
I think you're right. Seth will take care of the crybabies. Once that ticket is scannned the first day, it is essentially worthless. I hope they just deface the back or tear it. However ya never know what meathead (with no tolerance for crybabies) will be working the gate. PLEASE SETH TAKE CARE OF THE COLLECTORS!

This isn't about my liking, but rather yours.  If you think I'm bullshiting pick a show/venue of your choice out of the DC area & PM me the details and I'll cover it under the conditions that I outlined earlier.  But heaven help you if you don't abide by those conditions after your trip, this board will be merciless and you'll have to hide under Lily Allen's summer dress for her remaining 5 minutes of fame to escape the barage. I don't care if it's a Liza Minelli, Avril Lavigne, Ashley Simpson tri-headlining tour if you want to go it's on me, just remember the rules.

Hey Seth
 I purchased tickets to the Ben Gibbard show and I am unable to attend due to the second show being added and bumping up the ticket time.  Can I get a refund since the time had changed on the tickets, and I was planning on getting off at 7 pm and now I will miss one of my favorite artists and possibly some of the Gibbard performance.
 Please let me know what to do. I contacted the 9:30 Club and Tickets.com, and no body has an answer for me. PS.  I was never contacted about the show changing times, I was browsing the site in hopes of finding out the possible set times for the show.

What? I am just coming up here to have a little fun and talk. I started posting after the Masive Attack show(please don't have them come back!),  but like I said this is just for fun. I am a eccentric guy and like to be well versed about many subjects. I am not having an identity crisis but maybe a midlife one. I don't have a body issue because I am tall and skinny but thanks for caring.
 
 If you want to I would like to go to NY to see Amy Winehouse. I will promise not to post about having the same artist come back except for once a year. I defenitely don't like Avril or whoever else you named. I don;t believe the hype and trust my own gut with music.
 
 Oh yeah, I am not a tranny either.

I think it's about time to ask for squarepusher again. Maybe putting in this req a little earlier would've resulted in his being booked for v-fest. I'd much rather a club show anyway. It's surprising that he played no US dates at all in order to push his phenominal most recent album.

 and since i have your attention, i'll cue up my on-going requests for squarepusher and aphex twin.  thanks!
 
 aside: did you know the 930 Club  is listed on LiveNation.com (http://www.livenation.com/venue/getVenue/venueId/1831/)?  one might think it's a livenation venue   :)    "buy tickets" does point to tickets.com, though.  interestingly enough, they have a 930 RSS feed... might have to sign up.
 edit: just noticed that elvis costello is a livenation event, i guess that's what got the club listed there.

I third that for Queens.  I was there for that show, too.  Josh was about to jump offstage & mangle that cat.  That was hilarious watching him sing & threaten to pummel that cat simultaneously.  Classic 9:30 moment . . .

I have a recording of it...I love the classic "I will fuck you in the ass, you bitch!" line. Also hilarious: during "Regular John" when Troy and Josh are trading guitar riffs, Josh stops and says, "individually, we all have tiny dicks. But together, we make one giant cock. Plus, Joey is back there, so it's kind of fat too." Then Troy chimes in and says "I believe that's called 'girth'." Priceless.

Well let's see, I don't think anyone is angry at Bull930... merely frustrated, confused, and irritated that he seems to repeat himself and has a one track mind.  Also don't think anyone questioned whether he was nice or not, just that his ADD is a little out of control and he refuses help.  For the record I fly to a lot of places to see "awful bands" but also in the mix there are a few good ones.  If you had been following Bull930 posts over an extended period of time you actually wouldn't have these questions, unless of course you share Bull's affliction of being a 21+ man trapped in a 13 year old girls body.
 
 Also I'm not flying all over the world merely to see the Pumpkins, I was going to be in UK this weekend and once they added the Paris show extended my stay to catch it, and Pink Pop was on the schedule for 9 months before a single artist was posted.  But thanks for trying to help with the bug in my ass, and as for my problems none here I can see. I feel very fortunate about how my life has turned out even it includes working for the man, I've been averaging at least 200 shows a year on no fewer than 3 continents for well over a decade so don't feel sorry for me I sure as hell don't.
 
 But if you think people should be angry with me and leave Bull alone, I'm fine with that.  In fact I'm the one who offered to sponsor an excursion for Bull to his show/place of choice so if you think I'm being mean to him I'd really hate to see the rest of your reality.
 
 
 Peace dude, and you can use your militia starter kit to paint a target on a British Airways 777 taking off in about 8 hours, and no worries I don't hold a grudge.

Yeah Seth this would be a cool show indeed.  Have to keep the jerkwad who threw, what ever it was, at Josh's head out of the place this time though! [/b]
I third that for Queens.  I was there for that show, too.  Josh was about to jump offstage & mangle that cat.  That was hilarious watching him sing & threaten to pummel that cat simultaneously.  Classic 9:30 moment . . . [/b]
I was at that show too, I actually met Josh after the show and he said "Some random pussy wanted his moment of fame so he threw some shit at me. Whatever." But whoever has a recording of this show could you maybe PM me a link to it  :D  I found it but it didn't download. Queens released a tour edition of Lullabies and the 2nd disc of this had 6 songs and they were recorded at that 930 show. Double nights! SO worth it! Do it.

Hi,
   It is probably too late for this request anyway, but is there any chance of IMP presenting a local Roger Waters show?
   Now that the live earth thing is not happening in DC, he is not playing in the area at all.  It seems like there may be some open dates on his schedule right before live earth on 7/7/07 in New York.
   He played the area last year, but it was the same night as Virgin Fest, so lots of people in the area didn't get to see it and would I'm sure jump at the chance.
 
 Thanks

If Silverchair were to play the states again, I'd imagine they'd be joining Live at that fairfax generic bands of the 90s that nobody cares about anymore fest or whatever it's called.

Hey Seth,
 
 Is the White Stripes show at the Patriot Center an IMP production? If it isn't, please ignore the remainder of this posting.
 
 If it is... I just received word from the White Stripes mailing list that Grinderman is opening for the White Stripes at Madison Square Garden on July 26th. That's just two days before the show at the Patriot Center. Could you please persuade Grinderman to stay here in the U.S. for a couple more days and perform at the Patriot Center as well? Thanks!

so far these are the only Grinderman dates...
 
 July 24 ? New York, NY ? Madison Square Garden w/ The White Stripes
 July 25 ? Chicago, IL ? Metro
 July 26 ? San Francisco, CA ? Great American Music Hall
 July 27 ? San Francisco, CA ? Slim??s

Seth, I'm bailing on the last day of Lollapalooza to support V Fest. so I'm looking at flights back to the area from Chicago and unfortunately there's nothing that will get me back in time for the whole day Sunday but since there are major price differences ($90 versus $250) between morning, afternoon, and early evening flights I have to weigh the options.  I'm leaning toward getting back in time to be at Pimlico by 4-5pm, so without divulging the top secret set times can you comment on how many main stage/2nd stage,etc. acts I'll be able to see if that's the case?  Better yet, can you reveal when the set times will be released?

Hey Seth, at the same moment bnyced0 is flying to BWI, I'm flying from BWI to Chicago.  But because of the jet stream, bnyced0's plane is flying 500 miles per hour. My plane, on the other hand only goes 450 miles per hour because of head winds.  Which one of us will be closer to the VFest when they meet?

Hey Seth...
 
 According to an email I stumbled across today, the Beastie Boys are embarking on a tour that includes "two types of shows this summer, 'regular' shows and 'gala events'" and "THE GALA EVENTS will be in smaller spots, more exclusive, more intimate. this will be more like quality time, our time, just you and the band sitting by a fire on a tropical beach late at night being serenaded with love songs. these shows are for people that are into our weird stuff, so if you want to get weird together, this is your call. these shows will be based around the instruments. some songs will have vocals, others will be instrumental. BUT if you'd like to come to one of these shows, then dress to impress, wear a suit, a tie, a dress, a gown or whatever you feel dressed up in... AND PLEASE leave your cargo shorts, birkenstocks and t-shirts at home, this is not that kind of party."
 
 Would we be able to consider the 930 a potential condidate for one of the gala events by chance?

The Gala events are almost ALL INSTRUMENTAL, no rappin.  Buddy saw the first one in Seattle, they spoke maybe twice.  They're doing this at most of the festivals they're playing in Europe, with one day a normal show the next/day before instrumental.  He said it was good though.

yes, she did....yes i had to tackle her on the steps leading to the stage....
 
 the show was ok.  i really like the Dresden dolls. cyndi was pretty good too.
 
 Rufus waiwright has a fucking awesome voice, he just needs to get a new band and a new pair of pants, imo.
 
 not a fan of the gossip, erasure, rosie o donnell, or chicks with hairy armpits (amanda palmer aside).    people seemed to having a great time though...save for that one crazy girl.

hey seth, i think bebel gilberto needs to get booked at the club soon after last night's performance.
 
 would you install better faucets in the lady's restrooms at merriweather? not all work, and those that work, most have the cap missing so you need to press in on that hard pin to get water to come out.
 
 thanks!
 
 ps last night's show at merriewather was fantastic. i haven't been there in a couple years and its fabulous what you have done with the place. all the food and beer options, all the extra screens to see the show at any spot on the grounds.

heya seth,
 
 thanks for bringing us the pumpkins.  idea: they have an open taping policy.  NPR broadcasts shows.  any chance we can get the on-air lefties to make the show available to all the folks who will inevitably be unable to attend in person?  hopefully there is still time to get NPR on board.
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: mdh9857 on July 06, 2007, 12:02:00 pm
Thanks for the shows this year, been great so far.
 
 I was wondering if I might request a show by Jay Brannan.  He's an acoustic artist from NYC, and was in the movie "Shortbus."  He has a very devoted fan following.  His NYC shows sell out in pre-sale, and he is one of the most popular musicians on You Tube, and even got his stuff on iTunes.  He always has an open schedule, and I know that it would be a great show!  
 
 I know they were here recently, but I would love to see a headlining show by either Bayside or Cobra Starship.  Both were awesome as openers.  They seem to be busy this summer, but in the fall they are open.  Bayside is playing Warped Tour and getting a lot of publicity because of it too.
 
 Thanks for considering.
 
 Mike

Hey Seth,
 
 The Hives are touring with Maroon 5 and will be in the area mid-October. The tour has lots of open dates, probably because the Maroon 5 boys work so hard and need their rest. I'm willing to bet The Hives would love to do a gig in a venue that appreciates them.

We are still confirming performers for the dc space thing. There will be a lot of them, and a complete list will be posted no later than tomorrow. We can't put the tix onsale without a door time, and without a clear idea of how many performers there will be, it's hard to know what the total running time of the event will be. Although we could have just gone with doors at noon to be on the safe side, I think it''ll be more like 4 or 5 pm.
 It's shaping up to be a really good time though, as you will see once the artist list is complete.

Can you explain the rationale behind releasing set/stage times for festivals in general or at least for the ones you??re involved with?  
 
 I??ve often wondered why/how some festivals are willing/able to provide set/stage times months in advance while others wait until days before the show.
 
 Is this merely a promoter preference, is artist management involved in the decision, do concessionaires have a say?
 
 Are there concerns that fans will delay entry and thus suppress revenue making opportunities for the concessionaires?
 
 Are the times not firm until the last minute?
 
 How much lead time do the companies actually printing timetables for distribution at the show require to make deadlines, and is the information even quarantined from them?
 
 Bonus question:
 
 And if you??re feeling especially forth coming can you provide insight in the theories of not merely banding fans upon initial entry and allow unlimited entering and exiting during multiple day events.  Again is there a concern about revenue suppression, is it merely a logistical nightmare requiring unruly security requirements, etc.?
 
 
 Pulling back the veil on these types of decisions would be enlightening and appreciated.

whew...had to get a cup of coffee for that one...
 
 The biggest reason we don't release schedules is because they're not finalized until pretty late...just finished V Fest this week and will put it out shortly
 
 other than that, as you will soon see, it will inspire a cacaphony of forum complaints, with people taking great pride in demonstrating their other-worldly hipness by declaring how inconsiderate it was to have their personal discovery band overlapping with another, or how positively unbearable it might be to have 2 bands on at the same time that they have long since abandoned due to commercial success, thus giving them nothing to do for an hour and be forced to walk around & socialize
 
 followed by the usual declarations of how they are abandoning our local event in favor of travelling to see Daft Punk
 
 all of which greatly amuses me, as people are actually so sheep-like in their strive to prove different
 
 lighten the fuck up and enjoy life I say to the aforementioned
 
 in & out priveleges...where do I begin...
 
 it's hard enough getting everyone in the first time without having to do it over & over
 
 then, of course, there's the scam factor
 
 and where is it that people need to go exactly?
 
 can't be for anything good but, if there is a legitimate reason, we  try to listen and make exceptions, but understand that someone needing to go out for an illegitimate reason is going to tell us otherwise so, of course, that ruins the trust for everyone
 
 in terms of food & beverage sales, we absolutely count on that to pay for everything so, no, we cannot afford to lose that opportunity...sorry, that's just life in a capitalist system...and we are not subsidized by the Park Service like Wolf Trap
 
 so when you are hoisting that cold one, think of it is going towards your favorite band
 
 or, if you want to be miserable, dwell on how it as paying for the one you wish wasn't playing
 
 we're going to try to do everything we can to make sure that people coming to the show have a great time, and that the ones who don't realize they fucked up
 
 it will be fun I promise

Great response Seth.  I'd so be at V Fest if I wasn't on vacation.  (Hey when the parents plan it, you just have to go along)
 
 Any thought of a Jay Brannan show yet?  Haha.
 
 Thanks for the shows, looking forward to the fall!

 followed by the usual declarations of how they are abandoning our local event in favor of travelling to see Daft Punk

(I sound really greedy after the other forumite's lengthy post and all that Seth does year-round...) Mostly, I'm just curious..also about possible 2-for-1 ticket deals, or $10-12 specials in the future?

Actually, how cool would it be to have Prince come and play and each night he would do one album, from start to finish, with assorted favorites? I'd want to show up the night he plays "Dirty Mind". That would be an awesome show.

Unfortunately, he doesn't do much of "dirty" anything these days.  He's purged the smut out of his sets, he's still one of the best out there and a can't miss show, but oh how I relish the memories of those raunchy concerts....

Hey Seth...  I know I asked this a while back just wanted to rekindle the concept.  A Rage Against the Machine show at the club (and me getting tickets of course) would make it so I could die a happy man!  I am eagerly awaiting the announcement (of the show, not my pending death).

Keep your panties on, they'll be touring extensively in the fall/early winter "co-headlining" with Hold Steady unlikely they'll pass on DC I would expect dates at both the club and Sonar relatively soon, my little prediction.

calvin's album was an integral part of the soundtrack to my hours of driving this weekend - it's damn catchy if "disco meets house on a commodore-64" is your sort of thing... and really, who can turn that stuff down?  very danceable, a few tracks remind me of LCD soundsystem (stream the album here (http://www.calvinharris.tv/meetcalvinharris/)).  i'm now kinda excited about this show.  i imagine that a rather fabulous crowd will be in attendence at the merc - with any luck i'll be there to drag things down.

Much better idea, but then you should tag their booking agents with the request, as omnipotent as Seth is I doubt he can arrange a one off of obscure acts for your personal pleasure, start a petition for them to tour and if the risk/reward differential on Seth's calculator pops up $$$$$$ I'm sure he'll book it even without the request, just saying....

given that she's only playing NYC and LA, she's in fact skipping most of the country - so it's not as if she's targeting DC for omission.

Again much like Bjork, Polly has earned the right to do whatever the phuck she likes, and if you have to go to her rather than her coming to you so be it.  Hell she's only doing two dates (London & Brighton) in the UK post new album release.  
 
 She pretty much said she wouldn't be doing full tours anymore, though it was widely misreported as her saying she'd never play live again.
 
 Hopefully she'll get the itch and want to do something a little more extensive, say Daft Punk or RATM like, hitting most "parts" of the country.  
 
 But having her on the eastern seaboard is still fairly convenient and a whole hell of a lot better than nothing.

On a completely different topic, I want to say thanks again to Seth for reading this board and taking my suggestion to put up new hooks in the ladies' room bathroom stalls (I can't remember if it came up in the earlier "Hey Seth" thread, or Seth had started a thread on what improvements could be made to the club -- I feel like I faintly remember the latter).  
 
 I was at The National last night, and once again thought -- "I love these hooks!  Not having to put my purse on the wet floor is...well just thank goodness."

fair point, for me it fortunately fell in an open window of opportunity, though it is brutal to work all day, head up there, and get back in time for work the next day.  
 
 But it is PJ Harvey, and there's really no alternative.
 
   To show you how sick I am, I once took a train from Sevilla to Barcelona to see her, 12 hours up, 65 minute set, and another 12 hours back (this was pre-deregulation and cheap flights) and I don't regret it to this day.

They get back from Europe in early December. Any chance for them to do some gigs between December 13th through 19th? They'll sell out 2 nights at the club easy. And we'll drink a lot of booze too!

Now we're asking Seth to bring in the bands, AND manage their set lists?  Is he a promoter or the phuckin lost 5th member of the Fantastic Four?  
 
 Seriously guys, it's great that he pays attention to the littles and still books excellent shows despite that, but he's human, a shitty gambler, and most importantly for your sanity and mine...unable to spontaneously teleport to 9th & V any and every band that pops up on your ipod playlist.
 
 Some people are rationale, see that a band is on tour and playing within a reasonable distance, and they put it out there that it would be nice to have them at the club (my guess, since it's his full time job he already knows that and if it makes sense is already working on it).  But some (Sweety, xxxPD,)  attribute superhuman abilities to the poor guy whilst ironically encouraging career suicide by asking him to book  acts so obscure that offering free admission AND free beer wouldn't fill the club.
 
 I'm not saying the bands being requested aren't good, or wouldn't be great to see at the club, but so would free admission and beer...all things that common sense say isn't going to happen.
 
 Ok, sleep deprived tantrum is over.  
 
 Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.....
 
 Seth could you raise Johnny Allen Hendrix, James Douglas Morrison, and John Henry Bonham from the dead to form a Placebo cover band, and have them play a one-off at the club for board members only?  
 
 Oh yeah, please make it free admission and unlimited free beer.   Thanks dude!

speaking of thievery corporation, will the 930 club santa be having them perform another 4 nights in a row in december?
 
 930 santa could have qotsa on the 13 and 14, which is an easy sellout, rest day for the staph on the 15, and thievery corp the 16, 17, 18, and 19, all of which will sell out.

I'll second this, but we're pushing our luck. We've been fortunate to have a 3 night stint in 05, a 4 night run in 06 (plus VFest), and the Merriweather show this year. I cannot honestly say we NEED Thievery back because we in DC have seen more of them in the last three years then anywhere else (thanks in HUGE part to Seth), but if they do come back, I'll go to every freaking night.

dearest bnyced0,
 
 1. please sleep more,
 
 2. get off your frickin high horse.  believe it or not, you can be wrong.  i think it's great that you share your opposing opinions, but please sell it as such.
 
 3. is there anything wrong in ASKING for a band?  seth doesn't book every request that gets posted here, and no one here hates him for his business decisions.  give the man some credit for knowing his biznid and being able to filter the signal from the noise.  even if a given request isn't economically feasible at the moment, i doubt that he minds *hearing* what people want.  the club has been going strong for 25+ years, i doubt a few requests will bring it down.  so some fanboy/fangirl asks seth to book their fav hack band - so what?  
 
 off to bed myself, admittedly also sleep deprived...

Let me sleep on it, though I think it would be more interesting if it was my $1000 against a 2008 Season pass (not VIP, just entrance) to every show at the club (which I think you should be selling anyway)...
 
 in the mean time I have a serious question and though the answer might be akin to telling a 3 year old that neither the tooth fairy nor santa claus exist... but have you EVER booked a show based solely on a request you received in this forum?  
 
 And by solely I mean the band wasn't already on your radar screen (i.e. wasn't touring and made inquiries, or bookers hadn't put feelers out, or it wasn't already on your wish list, etc) when the request came in?  
 
 In other words you read the request here, and it was the first time you even thought about it, and then followed up with trying to get more info, and it eventually led to them being booked at the club.
 
 And a bonus question if you HAVE done this, how did it go (sell out, total bomb, broke even, etc.).
 
 And finally if you're feeling particularly forthcoming, who was/were this/these band/bands, or who did you go through most the paces to get but ultimately didn't book?
 
 I apologize in advance for being the wicked warlock of the west and shattering the innocence of those boardies that may find out that you're not actually the wonderful Wizard of DC...

excellent idea, i certainly would have bought one while i was in DC.  but i fear that it would be hard if not impossible to price such a pass up front.

 maybe for some people, it is just that... and then they cry when there is no santa.  however, i think for most people, posts on this thread are polite request for seth to consider bringing their fav band.  nothing more than asking him to look into it.  it is, after all, his business to bring bands that people want to see.  
 
 would you prefer that people not request bands at all, and the 930 be left to its lonesome in figuring out what they should book?  what is wrong with asking?  you portray people here as clueless children asking for the moon - i don't see that, but i'm willing to recognize that my view is rarely perfect.  when has anyone cussed out seth for not fulfilling an impossible request?  when these request go unfilled, seems to me that folks are realistic enough to blame the band, not seth.

agreed, and i realistically think it would sell very well.  that bnycedo thinks it won't sell is fine by me, it's a perfectly valid opinion.  what i don't get is his patronizing and condescending dismissal of our request - we're stupid for even asking.

I think along these lines... when someone gets paid for something they're a professional.  I for instance don't have clue one about anything automotive (oil change, tire change, anything change) nor plumbing, or a bunch of other seemingly common sense tasks.  
 
 But thank goodness the little I do know pays well enough to hire a professional mechanic or a plumber when then need arises.  And when they start their work, I don't look over their shoulders and give them pointers, again they are professionals and if their work sucks I either sue and/or get another one.  
 
 In this case, Seth is a professional, it's nice he listens to what the kids say, and it's undoubtedly valuable to know what's hot and what's not, but I can't imagine what a handful (and I think there are less than fifty people that post regularly and shout out requests)  of borderline retarded internet geeks (I'm fully including myself in that description) are influential enough to alter what his professional instincts have him doing already.
 
 But I could be wrong which is why I asked him to clarify if he does actually give a rats ass what we request, because I think these requests are either a validation of something he's already working on, or just white noise.
 
 I don't discourage the requests, just make them realistic, and relevant.  But I don't run the show around, people should ask for whatever the hell they want, and I think it's also alright to berate them when it's a totally over the top fantasy (i.e. european bands not touring anywhere else in the world, broken up bands, artists so obscure their entire fan base would fit in the requesters' living room, etc.).
 
 And do you really want to continue to leave open the flood gates to whomever bull becomes infatuated with this week...my money is on Kate Nash...

I did make something like 5-6 booka shade requests in this thread before they were booked for v-fest.
 
 
 Speaking of which, they're returning stateside in december/january.
 
 Club date this time around perhaps?

fortunately, there's seldom an act requested that I haven't heard of (although it does happen)
 
 all feedback is considered...why wouldn't it be?
 
 you people are my customers...I know it's really cornball to say things like "you are the most important people in the world" but your business and support really is appreciated more than you'll ever know
 
 I really enjoy making people happy by going to see my shows...I never tire of hearing about it and always welocme ideas on who to book and how to make things better
 
 it all has an ifluence...there have been many occassions where I am working on a show and try harder to get it done because it sounds like people really want to see it
 
 but...in general...it's always cool to say anything you'd like here

I discovered that this past weekend - over and above sir - thank you very much.  Had a great time, had lots to drink and brought back club t-shirts for me and the Mrs to proudly wear around SF. Thanks again.

Touche, but I didn't say I was any better at betting, just pointing out that you're human and that if you had the ability to pull off some of the shit people are asking for you'd probably not be betting on the Raiders in any situation,this coming from a guy who bleeds silver and black...
 
 That said, if you'll put up 1 ticket to my choice 20 IMP shows in 2008, I have $500 against a winner takes all NFL playoff bracket.  
 
 As soon as the playoff teams are settled and before the kick off of the first wild card game, we fill out brackets all the way through the superbowl, first person to lose both their superbowl teams is out.  In case of a tie, person with most total wins.
 
 
 The brackets, my $500, and your IOU for the 20 tickets will be sealed and held by a neutral source (SMACKIE?) and only opened after the superbowl.
 
 Put up, or shut up  :D

Of course I'll book this, but NFL brackets are tough because they reseed after the first round - the fact that it's a bracket is irrelevant.  What you've really asked for is to pick a super bowl winner, which isn't really gambling.

How about I think of a number between one and ten, and mail it to Smackie in a sealed envelope, and the two of you wager on whose guess is closer? It's gambling in its purest, and most inanely obsessive, form.

I've got lots of bands to request but my most realistic requests at the moment are
 
 Hot Hot Heat as they are bringing along De Novo Dahl  one of my top 10 fav bands at the moment.
 
 Mavis Staples her set at Bonnaroo was a festival highpoint for me.  The CD is amazing as well..
 
 Cheap Trick, The Romantics and the Hoodoo Gurus would be awesome triple bill.  I would take them on their own as well.
 
 Franz Ferdinand at club again would be cool...
 
 If they ever tour the US again, Idlewild, James, or The Coral.

Shit, yes, I forgot about that. Well, that's not going to work is it?  
 
 I'm up for suggestions, how bout we send you our picks for each week before hand, you keep the talley, but before the Conference Championship games we pick the winners AND superbowl winner, and for the only time the score.  
 
 If there's a tie, then the one with the most wins throughout the playoffs wins. If still tied, one with the close superbowl score takes all.

Pylon is reissuing Gyrate next month. If they're doing any shows north of GA, I'd love to see them again. Maybe bring along one or two other Athens/Atlanta bands, e.g. Guadalcanal Diary (inactive at this time AFAIK) and the Swimming Pool Q's (they're doing a few shows a year).

Typical grid-pattern office pools require no knowledge, just luck. In one Super Bowl pool I had a 3-0 square (very nice) and won $125 because of a missed extra point   :cool:  ($5 per square, pool evenly split by quarter)

thats a possibility but unless you follow sales numbers it would be hard to make intelligent guesses...

Not really what I meant considering adding someone to an already established date as an opener isn't particularly earth shattering as openers change last minute all the time, and sales projections were based on the headliner,  but that is interesting, just not quite on point.  It was a solicited suggestion, not an organic request, which would've been utterly asinine if it weren't going to be taken into consideration.

not for me, i love the band that im going to see. and even though it may not be a band that everyone likes (or you for that matter), the fact is that its your own personal taste. im excited i get to see one of my favorite bands play back to back shows while im at home for a college break. and im sure if one of your favorite bands played back to back nights you would be just as excited as well. the difference is i wouldnt give you shit for it, because even though the band you may like is not one i may like, i still have the respect for the fact that the band you like is coming around and im not going to make you feel like an ass for liking the music that they make... so happy early birthday to me and im going to celebrate it the way i damn well please

merriweather would be ok if there isn't a repeat of the traffic situation.
 
 5.5 hours from richmond->merriweather is pretty ridiculous.  that's an average of like 25mph on the interstate.  if i hadn't been sick i would have left earlier and just taken 301, but i didn't anticipate the issues would be as bad as they were on the interstate.

I didn't know circle jerks will still touring, but dont waste your time on current incarnations of the Bad Brains or Misfits.  It's a scam, a ruse, a trick to get your $$.

Circle Jerks have been on off touring for the past couple of years...They are supposed to come out with a new album soon so I would expect them to go on a US tour to support it...

My 17-year-old neighbor would lose his balls over this.  He constantly talks to me about Dethklok, and I have no clue what he's saying.  Probably like when I talk to him about the Stooges.

terrible idea to open for EITS..just totally different genres of music.  im guessing this was a favor due to the fact that john congleton (the paper chase's singer) produced their last album.
 ive seen them at the ottobar, north six and the black cat and they were great...

Panic! at the Disco is doing a club tour before they do their big summer tour.  Similar to Fall Out Boy.  I'd love to see them.
 
 Margaret Cho is doing a few workshop shows at small venues (i.e. The Norva 2 shows) to showcase new material before her tour.

autechre should be touring around april or so.. (there's a chicago show up on ticketweb).  it'd be nice to see them at 930 again.. i'd rather not have to go to the black cat this time.  i'm pretty sure the 2001 date sold out or came close to selling out.
 
 would prefer not to see them with men's recovery project this time, though.

Dearest Sethwald,
 
 My last experience at your award-winning establishment which involved a fine groups of chaps appearing under the moniker "The Presets" was, to the best of my recollection, entirely delightful.  
 
 It has been brought to my attention that this gaggle of antipodians is once again on tour, and will be playing in New York (how dreadful) in June.  If not too much to ask, would it be possible to summon them to the club?
 
 Pip pip and cheerio,

For the VFest, in the early afternoon Cheap Trick-cool-older-fogey-band slot, may I suggest From the Jam.  Just saw them tonight at the B'mere and they rocked. Bruce and Rick still playing superbly and a guitarist/vocalist who's a 40-year-old Weller acolyte.  Put 'em on the big stage and from a distance you'd never know the difference. Set list included "Town Called Malice" "Going Underground", "Eton Rifles", "David Watts", "In the City", "This is the Modern World" and lots more. The crowd dug it tonight and they'll love it at the VFest. Also opener Hugh Cornwell was no slouch either; good aggressive, well-played set out of him too.

Ummmm...there are certain things that I can only share with my closest friends. It was a wild, decadent night, and the fact that it all happened at Aphex Twin just made it all the more insane. One highlight: communicating telepathically with the 2 stoned girls next to me while the "Donkey Rhubarb" teddy bears came out on stage dancing. We all looked at each as though we had just simultaneously gone insane, then burst out laughing. You kinda had to be there. Sometime at a forum gathering I might elaborate when I've had a few drinks in me.

OK then it looks like 2 Lou Reed shows in a short span.  Thanks Seth.  (Now I am patiently awaiting an announcement of a Stray Cats show.  That would be the show that would simply be the show of the decade.)

Hey Seth cant wait for iron maiden to get announced but im dying for this tour to come here... maybe u cud book it July 9th or early july?
 
 At The Gates, Darkest Hour, Municipal Waste
 
 DH and MW have a strong local following being that their both from va. And At The Gates is a very influential band and havent toured for like 10 years and it would pretty much gurantee sell out (As long as there are 1,300 real metalheads in this area). This would be a great make up for the cancelled darkest hour show.

This is fantastic news about Lou Reed at the club.  If anyone is concerned about what seeing him these days is like, don't be.  I saw him last year when he was performing the entire Berlin record and he was amazing.  Very emotive with his voice and playing tons of guitar, also very buffed.

Morrissey didn't sell out DAR, and he has more mainstream name recognition than Leonard Cohen.

Morrissey didn't sell out DAR because generally speaking the DC concert goer is a musical moron.

Not my money.
 DAR or Strathmore could sell well, esp. if you put him with a younger singer/songwriter like Rufus Wainwright.
 
 Morrissey and Neil Young have also been here just a few times in the last 15 years.
Title: Re: Hey Seth

I don't think you can buy tickets in advance for back stage shows...you just show up, first come first serve. But generally they don't sell out.
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: Charlie Nakatestes, Japanese Golfer on March 11, 2008, 04:55:00 pm
Good points. But still, I just don't think the general concert going public gives a hoot about Leonard Cohen. He's a cult classic, but most people don't know who he is. Hell, if Lou Fuckin Reed is only doing the 9:30 Club, I don't see Leonard Cohen filling Merriweather or DAR (your two original assertions).

Neither of those two are popular anymore over here for a REASON.  They're awful now and haven't been good for twelve years (Weller?  x2.)  Hey, if I want to go see a band play dull, plodding, tuneless crap at Merriweather, R.E.M. are going to be playing there in a couple months aren't they?

weller solo stuff has a "classic rock" sound which could have easily worked on a classic rock station were those programmers not so hung up on having to only include artists of a specific era.  of course weller isn't popular in the states, his solo stuff was never in fashion for mainstream radio.

does anyone really want someone else's first born these days?  obviously it's a huge sacrifice for the parents, but methinks there is a shortage of takers.

YES!  ..or a secret surprise Pearl Jam club show when they're in town.
 
 ...or maybe since Ed is friends with Ian MacKaye, they could do something at the club instead of playing softball in Mt. Pleasant.   ;)

You would need precisely 5/24 more to make an ever 7 1/3...  Not sure if this is like the price is right where if you go over it doesnt count!

I agree with people about Leonard Cohen at a theatre in DC and same with Nick Cave (if you can't book Mr. Cave for two nights at the club - let's face it, one night just isn't enough ticket wise)
 
 By the way, I recently bought my B-52s ticket. I just want to say thank you for getting them to play the club! They've been one of my favorite bands since I was in second grade and have yet to see them live. To say the least, I'm pretty damn excited about April 26th.

the only redeeming part of the last show (i think this was the last one) at the club was taking audience requests for (partial) covers at the end of the show since it was the last show of the tour.

You mean the one a few years ago for the "Hotel" tour? Or the "Animal Rights" tour when they started doing all of the cover songs and Pablo the percussionist destroyed the keyboard with his bongos? That was a pretty awesome show.

i was referring to the "animal rights" tour (10+ years ago now, i guess -- wasn't aware he'd played the club since) when he somehow managed to make all of the "electronic"-based songs to sound EXACTLY the same.
 
 if it hadn't been for the covers, i would have left completely pissed off.

I completely agree with this.  something that would be much more "indie" than Vfest and could have acts on a pair of stages for an affordable price.
 
   Surely would sell at least 5,000 tickets easy.
 
   great idea!

I'll bet that Red Rocks festival needs to sell way more than 5000 tickets to turn a profit.

 Suggestions:
 The Bravery have a few off days between shows of Project Revolution (Nissan on 7/27 and nothing until 7/30)...?
 
 Kylie Minogue US show would be awesome.
 
 Warped Tour is coming around, and I would love to see a nightcap by Cobra Starship at the club.
 
 Hush Sound tour late summer, they said they we're gonna play DC, can we get this to the club.

Because a bunch of male 30something doofuses will pony up top dollar for this boys night out show, even if only two of the bands are on the bill.
 
 And then you only have to pay two of the bands!

Yeah it is, this tour and Confessions.  Not sure what the deal is, especially since she has hit DC for multiple dates on every single previous tour.  Her first tour hit Merriweather.  Come on and knock one Philly date off for us.

I like to put my two cents in for another Swell Season show at the club. Perhaps a secret/surprise show around Vfest? (they had a secret show in LA, so perhaps they would do another)
 Either way just bring them back to the club when you can please. I had to miss all shows in the area unfortunately. Oh, and I think the Frames are touring later this year. (Sw. Season were on my flight to Ireland a couple weeks ago, but I didn't bother them with mention of coming back to DC.  ;)  )

 seriously, i'm sure they'd sell out the club and would be an awesome show.

wolf trap is the best venue in town! not sure what this reference to a holier than thou attitude is...
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: RatBastard on June 21, 2008, 01:50:00 am
The venue is fair, but i know a lot of places that are far better.  Getting in is easy but getting out is a pain in the butt.  Every time I have been there, a majority of the crowd acts like spoiled little rich brat kids.  The whole nose up in the air bullshit thing is how a lot of them are.  Not even there to enjoy the music but rather to be able to go to work the next day and say to everyone else "Oh yeah I was there".  Rude, arrogant, and obnoxious are the three words to best describe a huge majority of the patrons at that place.  Then the park ranger trainees that are working outside the gates are real douche bags.  They act as if their little smoky bear hat and starched uniforms make them the all powerful wizard of Oz.
 
 I have to use their courtesy shuttle because of my mobility issues.  I will normally leave a show early so I can avoid the rush of traffic.  When I was dropped off at the front gate to go to a show, they told me to return to that spot afterwards and they would take me directly back to my car.  So I leave the show a song or two before the break for encore.  I ask this dweeb where the courtesy cart will pick me up.  He yells at me to sit on the bench and stop bothering him or he will have me arrested.  Then he tells me I have to wait until 30 minutes after the show ends so all the cars can get out before they will start taking folks back on the courtesy cart.  Its 30 minutes before the scheduled end of the show and they say they don??t want the carts caught in traffic.  So now for the next 45 minutes I have to sit on a hard bench or stand on concrete (both of which I can??t do because of my back).  So when I go to explain this to him he threatens to have me arrested again if I do not start walking to my car immediately.  I ended up hobbling to my car about 3/4th of a mile away and I fell on the blacktop twice because it was on such an incline.  I emailed the venue about all of this when I got home and all I ever heard was a ??we will look into it? response.
 
 Yeah that a really great venue!
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: hutch on June 21, 2008, 02:10:00 am
get a clue.. its a gorgeous national park.. ticket prices are CHEAP... and you can bring a cooler full of beer and food.. AND you can leave anytime you want and go back to your car..
 
 yeah..its the best venue in town.. sorry for your bad experience...i've had nothing but good experiences including with the rangers..
 
 its easy to make fun of park rangers..but its kind of silly...

 maybe its not the right venue for you.

My gripe is with how I am and other are treated  there.  WT indeed is a very pretty venue, but the patrons and the employees are jerks.  The sound is about a 6 on a scale of 1-10 at best.  It is a venue built for the rich snob type of the DC area.  NOTE: I am sure there are many who do there who do not fall into this category and not all people who ahve money are like this. But there is a huge proportion of patrons of WT there who do.  I prefer a venue that is run by people who care about a good show and a safe time for everyone.  I have seen people threatened with being ejected for attempting to go to the bathroom at the wrong time.  I have seen an instance where the crowd was standing to get into the music except for an extremely drunk couple who proceeded to complain to one of the users.  Said usher demanded that the people one row up sit or be ejected.  I have seen a group of three hoity toidy types walk through the black top area behind the crowd while in conversation and not paying attention to where they were going.  The woman in the group ran into and all sut knocked over a young guy who was actually trying to avoid them and one of the men in the group cussed the kid out and threatened to beat his ass while the staff did nothing.  Yeah thats the type of venue I want to be at.
 
 I will drop the issue now. This is a Hey Seth thread nit a Why Does Wolftrap Blow Goats thread.
 
 Sorry for the typos.  I am typing with a couple of broken fingers.
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: hutch on June 21, 2008, 07:41:00 pm
the patrons and people who run wolftrap are not jerks.. just because ratbastard says so don't make it so.. have seen many shows there and people relaxing on the lawn having a picnic are now jerks??? compared to what??? people at the black cat? give me a break..
 
 as far as the sound.. i think ratbastard is showing his ignorance here because wolftrap has incredible acoustics.. its the best outdoor venue in the area BY FAR.. or what?? you prefer nissan or merriweather to wolftrap?
 
 they're jerks for having a shuttle that takes you there from the metro for like 1.50?? i haven't noticed that existing for nissan or merriweather?
 
 so yes its a hey seth thread and it was ratbastard who started this with the asinine comment that wolftrap is a crappy venue... anyone who saw cesaria evora/seu jorge or tony bennett last year or who has ever talked to any of the performers who play there- which i have- such as lyle lovett knows that performers love to play there because the sound is great, the venue is gorgeous and the crowd is very well behaved...
 
 now if someone doesn't like that well thats fine but lets not make idiotic statements ratbastard.
 
 now back to the hey seth.

my bad, i was confusing anthony with andy    :)  
 
 still don't see where they mention that anthony doesn't tour with them, but even if he doesn't i suspect that every out of work soul vocalist would kill for the opportunity to tour with H&LA, so i have no doubt that should anthony not be there, some other very competent vocalist will fill his spot.  anthony does a great job on his 5 tracks on the album, but my personal appreciation of of H&LA isn't limited to his performances.  still looking forward to this show like few others  :)

Hey Seth, about 5 or so years ago when I requested that you put hooks on the ladies room stahl doors you followed up and did so. You got lots of loving from all the females for a couple years after that one. Well, since then, one by one, all the hooks have disappeared. Believe me, you just can't imagine how helpful and appreciated they are by us. Please, please, PLEASE replace those hooks.
 
 While you are at it, I'd suggest you put them on the doors at Merriweather also. They are so inexpensive and you can even write them off your taxes.
 
 If you want to be the real ladies' man again, please give us back our hooks.   ;)

I'd say put the hooks on the stall walls instead of the doors - it's too easy for someone to swipe your stuff from outside the stall if the hook is on the door.

Some props going out to Merriweather.  I went to both the Duran Duran show and R.E.M., and both were great.  I had really really awesome seats for DD (which I would have rather had for REM, but that wasn't the hand I was dealt this time).  Also had VIP passes for DD, and that was a cool little perk to have your own bar and bathrooms.
 
 All worked well, getting in and out SO simple, staff was helpful, Club 932 is a GREAT addition.
 
 Yes, Wolftrap is great as well.  Different vibe (I don't find it pretentious, but what do I know).  Nissan is the place to AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE (even though some swell folks work out there).

 Sonic Youth have managed to elude me for way too long.  :(
 They've pretty much become the band I'm never meant to see.
 
 Even at Coachella when I was sitting there a few hundred feet away waiting for them to come on, something came up causing me to miss them right before they went on.  :(

there were two more votes for SY at the club in the "4th of july plans" thread, in case you missed it.  so that's 4 votes so far - only 1,196 more to go!  their show in NYC on the 4th kicked all sorts of ass.

and when, pray tell, was the last time SY played the 930?  and i'll bet that the last 5 times they played, the club was 90% full if not more... so how can that be "too much"???
 
 a show now will definitely sell out. they could probably sell out a 3-night stand.  
 
 they've been around since 1981, of course they've played the 930 twenty times.  they have the chops, and the fan base, to pull it off.  deal with it.

 Maybe he can open for them and they can debut their colabboration  live and then Seth can buy a new PA for the club after the current one is destroyed.    :)

 are you completely unaware of how many other musicians list them as major influences, or have you just never heard of the band?  to couch it in practical terms: they're a band that can sell out the 930 for two nights in a row.

to the person who said "deal with it":
 
 NO YOU deal with it! sonic youth have played the 930 club too many times for anyone to get too excited about them playing it yet again particularly considering they don't even have a new album...
 
 not sure how much they sell but considering most bands sell out the 930 club 90% full is not that great.
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: nkotb on July 09, 2008, 10:32:00 am
Even with a new album I doubt "excited" would be the word. Not saying I wouldn't go, but unless the follow-up was in the same league as Murray Street, I wouldn't say I'd be excited.
 
 Maybe if they were playing Sister from start to finish, though...

 Its the problem with bands that have such a deep catalogue.  If they were going to tour with no new material...wouldnt it be cool to announce a classics tour with all pre-2000 material perhaps?  
 
 I would go see them every Friday night if i thought that they were pulling from every album.
 
 
 will they ever play Junkie's Promise again?
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: nkotb on July 09, 2008, 10:49:00 am
Actually, they do normally pull some pretty deep cuts on each tour.  I think the last time I saw them play the entirety of a new album was the Thousand Leaves tour.  Not so great considering the album isn't stellar, but at least they closed with Death Valley '69.

there are still lowers available for this show on TM, so i think her chances of picking up cheapies are excellent.   CL (http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/search/tix?query=George+Michael&minAsk=min&maxAsk=max) has plenty of below-face offers.  if kosmette doesn't want to deal with CL, i suspect there will be scalpers outside the venue trying to dump tickets just before the show.

Those bands can play arenas for that kind of ticket price, and sell far more tickets than the 9:30 holds.

Hey Seth,
 
 A lot has been said lately with Radiohead's recent tour about the ecological costs associated with major tours, particularly at large venues outside the range of mass transit. Recently, I bought tickets for an event at the Charlottesville Pavilion and after selecting the number of tickets I wanted, it offered me the ability to buy a 40cent CO2 offset credit for each ticket, if I chose. It's not a full-scale answer to the environmental questions being raised, by any means, but even the opponents of the CO2-credit system admit it does afford some help (along side the push for car pooling, etc).
 
 I know VFest and Merriweather both pride themself on their green-ness and trying to preserve the natural environment as much as possible. Would it ever be possible to have a similar opt-in system for CO2 offset credits for IMP shows held away from the 9:30 Club, or does ticketmaster make it impossible? Has there ever been any thought to building in money to the ticket cost (like some places charge a "facility fee" in addition to the ticket, well, in this case, an environmental fee), or is this perhaps already happening?

Remember back in the Middle Ages when people would buy Papal indulgences from the Catholic Church to absolve themselves of their alleged sins?  CO2 credits are the modern day equivalent.

Seth, can you see if a Weezer date is available in and/or around the fall dates? I prefer the club to host - would be very fun.
 
 Separately, although I might not be going to VFest, I want to commend you and everyone involved at the many options provided to get tickets - especially the "green" method - clever & conscientious.

Hey Seth,
 I noticed that Nine Inch Nails are playing Charlottesville,VA on November 5th and their next date is in New Hampshire on November 8th. So I guess what I'm asking is NIN in DC in between those dates? Please! I know they just played the V-fest, and that was a brilliant performance and night, but it has left me and my friends wanting more. I really hope you can get them back here ASAP! Okay that is all   :)

well you're right about that.. few people would complain...
 
 oh and i forgot wilco just did the virgin fest! that would be three times in a few months..
 
 where would they play? patriot center? verizon?
 
 it would have to be one of those because it will be too cold for merriewather....and either artist can do fairly well at DAR on their own
 
 i don't think they can do verizon..not in this town..
 
 
 so you're down to the patriot center.. nothing to get too excited about IMHO and not sure it would sell out....
 
 i'm not sure i'd promote this show but we'll see what seth does...

AC DC THAT IS THE SHOW TO BRING TO DC!!!!!!!!
 
 automatic guaranteed sell out
 
 question is whether live nation is going to promote the tour..my friend thinks so because live nation set up an AC DC store on their website or somesuch..but i'm not convinced..
 
 but i think the demand for AC DC is very big...their album is going to blow it up when it comes out (NUMBER ONE BABY!).i would love to see them hit dc for two or three shows even if spead out....there's some nice action there for the promoter!

 Dolly Parton is playing some shows in the Northeast/Midwest, and it'd be one HELL of a time if she was at the club. I think people would flip their shit and that it would sell out relatively quick.
 
 I think before she gets scooped up by the Birchmere folks, she'd be better off at the club where she could bring it to DC, proper.

Are you talking about July 2002? That's the last time she's played the club, I think. The last couple of times she's been to the city, it's either been the Patriot Center or Constitution Hall. I know she played the House of Blues in Atlantic City not too long ago, and it'd be great to see her at a small/mid-sized (*cough* General Admission *cough*) venue like that here in DC.

My girlfriend is the one with the allergy and she really likes it (she really missed beer until this came out). Compared to regular beer it's not amazing tasting but if it's all you can have it's the best she's tried. It's also pretty easy to find in stores around here.

He was fantastic. I saw you up there enjoying the show/drummer, and was waiting for you to come down to play on a song!
 The best thing for me was being close enough to see Glenn and Chris looking at each other during the set. It is so great to see them having fun, and actually making genuine contact with each other. I hope it goes on long enough for me to see them again.

 I know I've brought it up before, but now there is more of a chance then ever.  Kylie Minogue is playing some in South American in November, and she just added a few more (I think 5 total).  Can you please get her to the US.  I'm sure she's thinking about it, but probably only doing NYC, LA, etc.  A DC show would be amazing, at any venue.
 
 Thanks so much!
 
 And thanks for Girl Talk.
Oh. My. Gawd. Yes!
 
 I've always thought she should do a North American Club Tour. Seth, can we make this happen? Yes, I realize it's nearly impossible, just putting it out there!

Hey Seth...  Revisiting a request from months ago about the Stray Cats.  I have no idea at all if they are going to hit the US eventually during this farewell tour but I don't see how they couldn't.  Anyway please get them to the club.  This would be a good thing.

heya seth old pal,
 
 the Easy Star All-Stars (of "dub side of the moon" and "Radiodread" fame) will be touring europe in a few weeks.  should they happen to do a stateside tour thereafter, i think they'd make a lovely addition to the 930's line-up.  thanks!

I really want to say they opened for someone in the area very recently but forget who it was.

Hey Seth, it looks like the Specials, or at least the Specials minus Jerry Dammers, have reunited and are looking to play shows next year.  How about a warm DC welcome with a sold out 930 gig or 2 or 5?    :)

you sure about that?  their website lists shows going back to march, and no DC/VA/MD dates... also, i'd be surprised to see them opening for someone else unless is was someone relatively big.  any chance that you're thinking of some other "all star" band?

Doesn't Aphex do exclusively DJ sets now?
Title: Re: Hey Seth
Post by: lancha on September 17, 2008, 06:31:00 pm
yeah he pretty much only does DJ sets now from what i've read. I was at the coachella gig and it was just him on his laptop.
 
 but the choice of music was a "history lesson". He opened up with some public enemy and Run DMC, then played older dance music from the late 80s, then some gabba, then the 2nd half was straight up drill n bass and techno. The last five minutes of his set was nearly pure static with distorted screams over it. He also had a bunch of people in animal costumes come out on stage.
 
 the first half was a complete mindfuck because no one expected it to be like that. and he only had an hour which pissed me of.

Refunds were not available when I posted this. I contacted ticketmaster 4 times, including yesterday, and they said they can not give refunds until they hear from the promoter.
 
 But this morning I received an email about refunds. I also saw the cheaper pricing for the new show which makes me want to go again.  :)

I know I'm going to get laughed at for this but I want to request Jesse McCartney and Pink to get club shows around Decemeber.  They both are in Philly/ Camden doing a radio Christmas holiday concert Sunday December 14th.  And a small venue show in DC would be awesome, especially since Pink will have just released a CD, and I don't think she is touring in the US until next summer.  Thanks Seth!

you should give her a chance, jules.  she's quite good when she isn't doing tweeny-pop.  she's got a solid set of pipes and strong stage presence.  and she's sexy, to boot. not mind-blowing, but definitely solid.
