!!! (at least one number or letter)
« on: May 13, 2007, 06:34:00 pm »
Anyone planning on checking out the show?  They've always been quite entertaining in the past. I just posted an interview with frontman Nic Offer plus the guy that did all the artwork for the new album on BYT:

wait, were they in the VIP section (just below the upper bar) or on the side-stage balcony?!?  i thought you told me you saw them above the stage...
 
 anyhoo, i'll be there and can't wait.  i fully expect this to be a kick-ass show.  they were a hell of a lot of fun at the  amoeba in-store, and shook the tent at coachella.  they may well be my new favorite act to see live.
 
 for all you stragglers: show isn't sold out.  get on it.

They were fun at the black cat last year. Better than LCD was tonight, actually. I'll be there tomorrow too.

Yeah, I just posted this in the LCD forum as well, I was bummed seeing Tyler Pope, LCD's regular bassist and one of my favorite musicians standing up there while his replacement didn't quite fill his shoes.

Too busy?
 
 Any specific constructive criticism would be appreciated.

a few quick thoughts: fun show, more than decent, but not amazing.  you should be kicking yourself for missing LCD, but !!! was only good.  direct relationship between the two shows: while DC once again proved that it can dance, i'm sure tonight's show would have been better had it not been the night after LCD's.  only so much dance-punk energy to go around in DC.  club was about 60% full, decently packed floor but barely enough to cover the rails upstairs.  set was 1:15 long, no encore (or if there was, i left before it).  
 
 at the end of the show nic started pulling people up on stage, both the lady and i counted about 60 punters up there (foreshadowing the polyphonic spree show?!?).  got stupid at the end - the dancers were knocking over mics and crowding out the musicians.  stage was over-crowded and they kept trying to get more people on there.  
 
 all in all it was fun, but i enjoyed them at coachella and the amoeba in-store more - better crowds.  oh yeah, tonight's crowd was very young.

From a musical standpoint, I prefered tonight over last night. But yes, I agree that the crowd was somewhat young and also lame. The black cat crowd when they played there last year had way more energy.
