American Analog Set w/ Vervein in Seattle
« on: 15 Oct 2005, 17:02 »

So I've been waffling between buying tickets to the upcoming show online and just paying at the door (because I'm a cheap bastard and I don't think I should need to pay extra $$ for tickets...or at least that the actual amount should be the amount advertised).  I look on the venue website and I notice something new on the calendar about the Amanset date:

"In their final tour ever.."

Can anyone verify whether or not this is true?

FLAVOR-FLAV, Y'ALL! BREAK UP? WHAT? Thanks to everyone who is writing to us with questions and support. We are not breaking up. While doing publicity stuff for our tour, Tag Team Media distributed a news item about our current plans, which you can read HERE. All we wanted to do was clear up the fact that we won't be able to tour like this again, and things went a little bit sideways. Please do check out the tour dates. We are really excited about playing these shows.

Caught the show at Chop Suey on the 25th.  The first opening act, Bre, ssssuuuuuuuuuccccckkkkked.  That's not completely true.  They weren't bad, but the lead singer sounded like she smoked too much..(kind of like  Kristen Hirsch or Aimee Echo) and was straining her voice too far on the high notes, and I really don't like it when bands use pre-recorded instrumentation during their sets.  If you're going to do that at least have the laptop in plain sight so that we can see you cueing it up.

Vervein was actually a nice surprise.  I'm looking forward to hearing more from them.

American Analog Set did the best they could under the rudest of circumstances.  I could hear the crowd more than I could the band in some cases.  We moved a bit closer for a few of the songs and that made a bit of a difference, but the crowd were just being rude.  I think they realized it too, as there was no encore (at least not in the ten minutes between the time they left the stage and the time we left the building).

I'm glad I saw them, but I wish the crowd would've been more appreciative.
