I’m sorry but this is all kinds of good. I love it!
Yeah, I guess it really isn’t possible to have it both ways.
@KiDCHAIR It’s a delicate dance of discretion that I’m sure no one would follow. Personally I like to be as discreet as possible and take as few pics as I can. Unfortunately that just isn’t the case for most ppl at shows.
OMG. Are you kidding me? At what point did I say I would be posing taking pictures of myself? I hate that crap at a show. I am talking about taking a few pics of the actual ARTIST. I flew from LA to San Fran to see She and Him, spent money on hotel etc..so yeah I’m taking a pic of them (stealth mind you). I was not speaking of the obnoxious crap that goes with ppl taking a pic with their friends during every song during the show.
How can you dictate how every person at show interprets enjoying a show. Maybe someone wants to close their eyes and take it all in. Maybe someone wants to snap a shot of a moment of the artist. When you start trying to control what seeing a band means to that particular person, that is when I feel, it’s WRONG.
You can’t assume I’m not getting the most out of the lighting, production, sound quality etc just because I take out my phone and take a quick shot.
I see both sides of this but I gotta admit it pisses me off to NOT to be able to capture some sort of moment from the night. And yes I do like reminiscing of shows and I do this through memory and through pictures.
We as the fans PAY to come see you perform. No one pays to see the artist, guess what, the artist is financially unsuccessful. If I want to take a few friggin’ pictures to remember that night, that moment my favorite song came on, I think it’s a little bold to be told you simply CAN’T.
Like others have stated, it’s ALL about discretion. I wouldn’t mind if we were told to please keep pictures to a minimum, no flash etc.
Of course this is just my opinion but I don’t like being told I can’t visually capture a moment of a show I PAID to see.
Respect between both fans and artist should be somewhat mutual. We’re the ones that support you, and for that I don’t mean on a financial level.
Oh Man Man, I’ve miiiised you. I’m going to play the heck outta this.
I love the love that Congratulations is getting on here. Definitely one of my favorite albums of all time. “Someone’s Missing” is one of my favs on there. It’s so inadvertently sexy, it’s ridiculous. The albums tells such a clear and progressive story. I really hope this next album does the same.
Sooo good! I love how Byrnes is only at the very end of the song but it’s still an epic cameo.
Keep The Car Running is definitely one of their best songs they’ve ever written. Also, Rococo.
Dave Grohl says he listens to “Keep the Car Running” every morning when he wakes up. Not sure that should sway the vote, but it’s pretty cool.
“Get Him Back” is from Extraordinary Machine not Idler Wheel.
