Wow. I want this.

How is this even possible?

Music would be better if there was no industry for it. It gives an incentive to appease masses over making passion projects.

There would be way less lowest-common-denominator garbage if there was no money in it.

 

Recently I got invited to see Walk The Moon because a friend had an extra ticket.  I'm not a fan, but whatever, free concert, right?  It was fun...for a bit.  After the first couple songs, I couldn't get over the fact that it looked like the dudes weren't really playing, the songs sounded exactly like the studio versions (as if what we were hearing was largely a backing track), and nobody but me cared.  It was then that I realized that is the face of modern popular music (and yes it's more about the money than the music).  Probably has been that way for a while, but I almost never go to shows for those kinds of bands.  I later looked up the cost of a ticket and holy hell ticket sales alone would've brought in around $70K.  In a small theater where the large majority of acts they host are not big name artists like that.  

 

Periphery could've gotten a show at that same theater but grossed a small fraction of that amount.  Of course they're not a band that makes much money on a tour.  The original headline was really misleading compared to what's in the article, so it's cool they updated it.

Armadillo Tank and TSS played a show with Walk The Moon in Baltimore many years ago. It's surreal seeing where they are now. I'm only bitter because I think they are bad.

Good lord I know you want guitar techs and private sound guys to take care of the tedious stuff and maybe you even just wanna give jobs to people, but fucking let go of SOME of your staff or else I cannot feel sorry for you "not being able to make a living" off your wildly successful band.

I can't claim to know how that shit works, and I'm naive as fuck, but you're the only one forcing yourself to split the profits of shows between staff and members until you have nothing left, and whose goddamn decision is it to keep doing that? I doubt the label slapped a contractual obligation on you to make your shows sound consistent before you even show up on stage. If you're not doing everything yourselves, why would you expect us to feel sorry for you not reaping every dollar from your shows? You can keep your rentals, or some of them, but God damn just give up what hemorrhages money and generally you'll be in the gold.

Stupid.

 

I think you underestimate the importance of guitar techs for a touring band.

Both NBA Jam and Mortal Kombat were on similar hardware and both have separate, smaller PCBs for handling audio. I guess they're compatible enough that you can hook up the wrong one and it will play audio from the other game in a nonsensical manner.

I was at that show! Having many meat space friends that enjoy Walk the Moon, it's fun/surreal being like "yeah I saw them open for my friend's video game cover band in a 3,000 degree baltimore basement"

 

They actually sounded pretty good (I was into indie pop back then, it happens), so I grabbed their CD - a home burned CDR. The production was so shitty I threw it out the window.

Wizwars, about the bush hogging. Just wet and part my man. Give that bush the Moses treatment and head for the Promised Land.

Whaaaaaaaaat.

I don't remember that show at all, I guess I didnt play with TSS at that one. Oh well

 

 

Periphery 4 needs to come out today or else they'll all be on the streets sucking dick for gear endorsements.

 

while i do not think this is true at all, they are currently in the writing process and will soon be in the studio

 

I did see that news, I am excited.

Meltdown Comics is shutting down after 25 years.

 

I saw The Minibosses live for the first time here. An eternal memory.

 

Now it will be no more.

Use 800 gigabytes of samples, I give approximately 0 gigafucks.

It's because pooping is the shared human experience. It's a universal language, like Jazz.
