could not disagree more mojo. the crowd was very into what was being put out there. that capitol shows were superb but last night was about as good as it gets.
everyone has their own tastes, and you’re certainly entitled to yours and free to do what you want (obviously). i think dso does a tremendous job of highlighting all eras over the course of each tour unless there is some circumstance that leaves the band with a drummer short for a bit or something to that effect. but that is rare. i am very much pro elective. there is a certain risk reward for sure but there is an unpredictability to it that is so unmistakably dead and true to the spirit. electives allow dso to highlight not oft played songs. recreations, also very enjoyable but they feel very straight forward to me. my suggestion to you, go see more shows. you’ll see more of what you want.
he was a friend of mine, if i had the world to give, believe it or not. all rare and all amazing songs. it’s also a special treat to hear something like that. rewarding people who come out to a monday night show with something that isn’t run of the mill. the show was to my liking. sorry it wasn’t to yours. but crazy to say the crowd wasn’t into it. they seem to be doing just fine with their current model.
