RIVAL SONS WAS GOOD - SOUND WAS TERRIBLE

They to figure out sound control

RIVAL SEATTLE

I thought sound was fine. Very loud for sure, but still OK. As far as the show, I thought both bands blew the roof off! One of the better shows I have arrended in my 57 years in this town. Been wanting to check out Sheepdogs for a while and only wish I had seen them sooner. They don’t mess around and were tighter and more talented than I imagined they would be. I expected them to steal the show, but Rival Sons crushed it, owned the crowd, and blew me away.

GUYS MUST HAVE BEEN TIRED OR NOT GETTING ALONG

I really love this band and it’s my first time seeing them live. Musically it was sloppy. Timing was off. They just weren’t able to stay in the pocket together. The levels were horrible. I tried standing at different places in the theatre but it didn’t seem to help. The guitar notes were totally drowned or by the kick drum. They only played 3 rocking songs to start, the crowd really starting getting into to it (myself included) and then they went slow and completely lost the crowd. We ended up leaving early along with a lot of others. Perhaps there just a studio band?

FUN SHOW / SHEEPDOGS FAR EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS

Three friends and I attended the concert last night. Everyone was surprised at how good The Sheepdogs were. We will definitely be following them and downloading their music. The apparent role of the commedian was to reset performance expectations after an awesome Sheepdogs set. He succeeded wonderfully in that regard. Rival Sons amplifier volume was a bit too high. Some nuances in the music were lost, but the raw power was impressive. The lead guitarist is very, very talented. The long speech before 'Jordan' killed the energy in the crowd. Plus the ballad did not live up to the big build-up. Ballads seemed to be mixed in to provide musical diversity, but I would like to see more diversity among the "hard rocking" songs. Style and phrasing seems to be similar among many of the songs. Lead singer did a bit too much posing. I am being critical here, but I did rock out and enjoy the show.
