Title: New Pornographers
Post by: HoyaSaxa03 on November 04, 2019, 03:04:43 pm
I know I'm supposed to use the Ticket Exchange forum, but it looks like nobody goes there still. Sorry.

I have two tickets for the New Pornos at 930 on November 5 that I need to sell. Face ($40) or less, have them on PDF, let me know if you need them.

What sad times these are when passing ruffians can pass off jam band tickets to other boardies at will. Truly there is a pestilence upon this board; nothing is sacred!

Probably not great enough for me to go and lose an hour hanging with my wife before she goes on a work trip for the rest of the week. And probably not great enough for me to skip voting.

Seems like just another annoying random singer.

I think the big question is does one stand near the always lovely Neko, or does one stand closer to the arguably younger and cuter black girl (and I identify her by skin color only because there is a third woman.)

The trick is to locate ChalCal and position yourself near him.  He knows where it's at!

I haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting him, but if I remember correctly what he has said about himself, I might have trouble seeing over him even when he's seated.

When at the 930 club, I tend to drift around the stage right area...with Everyshow ToddTM. I am past trying to get up close to stage at its center. If you are looking for me, I am the 6'1" skinny/fat dude dressed in all grey.

Adjacent to the FF area for sure, but around the corner, outside it's glare.

An infamous time in Phish lore is when the bottom dropped out of the Hampton ticket market in 2013.

This was caused by a tour that had multiple stops close to Hampton as well as the expectation that Hampton tickets would be hard to aquire, therefore people bought many extras in hoping they could trade these tickets for even harder tickets like Halloween. This created the Hampton ticket tree as well as the saying, "tickets on the ground" which is unfortunately what's going to happen happen to our friend with the extra Dead and Co. Tickets.

This is a fascinating tale of market forces at work.

Show was ok, but the double live disc from Dead Man's Pop that I listened to on the drive is  100 times better.

Pretty crowd crushed. Sightline was ok, but my body just aches when I have to stand in one place. My club show life may be over. Didn't see any boardies that I recognized...

show was a 7/10

def good that Neko is in this tour as I can't really stand Carl's vocals and he struggled a bit.   

did they go for a 2nd encore?  I don't think setlist.fm is accurate.

Was a good show for sure. Without Dan, I think the best they can do is around an 8, so 7 makes sense for this.

Setlist online is definitely not accurate. No second encore, and out of order. Carl's vocals were fine, but should have been brought up in the mix, as he is a quiet singer.

The opener was pretty great I thought.

Stood in my usual stage right spot, got a good Lean on the wall. Plenty of room around that area. Was able to fairly easily transit to the restrooms and back. I would amaze you with my close-up photos, but no photos were allowed to be taken.

I also get carded..sometimes...I like to think the people at Unique (many foreigners who donít seem to speak English) like to give discount to anyone to avoid issues with the kind of people who go to thrift stores

And I saved a buck on the Diary of a wimpy kid blue ray/DVD combo so who am I to complain

A few weeks back, I picked up the double-disc of JFK. When mrs grateful opened the box, disc 1 was an, ahem, adult video, instead of the movie.

Buyer beware. Also, Diary of a Wimpy Kid could also be a porn title.

Show was okay but nothing memorable. Carl looks so old now and then I realized Iíve been seeing these guys for over a dozen years now. Even though it always seemed like Dan hated being there I still miss his contributions onstage.

A tip for the age-challenged concert enthusiasts- try the upstairs rail.  My wife prefers it up there and I've grown accustomed to it's lure.

I thought Carl AND Neko both looked worse for wear last night.  Though it wasn't the best NP show I've seen, I take a decent NP show over a "great" one by many of the mediocre bands out there these days... their compositions are so well crafted! I agree, however,  Dan's presence adds another dimension to the band's sound. He was missed.

Really enjoyed Lady Lamb, the opener.

Sure, but don't you have to get there when doors open to get that spot? Then stand for 3 hours before the headliner plays one note?  That's like asking for a hip replacement!

Not necessarily.  Got there at 7:45 last night and nicely situated for opener at 8

If there's anything valuable I learned from RatBastard it is to call the box office a few days before the show and claim to have hurt your foot and ask if there is anything they can do for you, and they will -- without fail -- tape your name to one of the booths upstairs just behind the VIP balcony so that it is waiting for you when you arrive with zero questions asked.

the wrnr/new pornos event at rams head in annapolis was too short but was fun. they played: stairs, higher beams (2 from the new record) slow descent, whiteout, adventures. Carl sounds better (to me) not having to fight over the band in the rock music club.
