Review by Philbombs77

Philbombs77 Last time I spoke up in the comments (re: BGCA 7/18), it was to excoriate the band I love for yet another lackluster show. The thrust of my frustration was not that they were playing poorly, it's that they didn't even seem interested in trying to play well the entire tour. This was in the midst of a guaranteed 12-13 song first set and a perfunctory jam on the same 4-5 songs that get them going in the third quarter followed by a bullshit 4th quarter.

At the time, I was planning on selling my Dick's tickets, but as a Boulderite who can't shirk his work duties, Commerce City was/is my only option and I kept the faith.

And now can I just say....'Was that so hard?!"
1. Was it so hard to play a first set like there was a crowd ready to get the fuck down from the opening notes?
2. Was it so hard to make two first set lists that look like you have at least one historical "foot" steeped in the '90s and '00s?
3. Was it so hard to look at the second set as a WHOLE set and not just jam the third quarter while projectile vomiting out the fourth?

Obviously, these are rhetorical questions and I thank the four of you from the bottom of my heart for putting all of yours into Friday and Saturday! I'm so happy right now I'll save my diatribe on Fuego for another time. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
