Cool concert…but… Deafening. Literally. Apparently whoever was running sound has severe hearing loss…or is well on his way. Suggested reading: http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/8841090/music_making_fans_deaf.
It’s ironic, as this article points out, that those most reliant on their ears to do their jobs, are the ones at huge risk to damaging their hearing. It’s only a matter of time until we start holding clubs responsible for putting their patrons in unsafe environments. I welcome the day. I love to feel my music too but, not at the price of carrying on a normal conversation later in life.
But what kind of concert review is that!? Okay. The concert was great. I’ve probably seen Crowder eight other times so I got hear all the same jokes this time too. The band seemed to be having a bit of trouble with the monitoring system. I’ve never seen them look like they were working to hard. That said, I liked all the songs off of Remedy better live than on the album and I liked the stuff from A Collision better than the stuff from Remedy. Got it?
Phil Wickham is a treat to see. A Singin’ guitar player with lots of vibrato…can’t beat it.
The Myriad is the next big thing…or so they say.
