Full Matt Skiba & The Sekrets Set from Chicago

Posted by - 08:37 PM on 06/10/12
We posted a couple days ago about the disaster that was the first Matt Skiba & The Sekrets show in Chicago at The Metro. It seems as though the word "trainwreck" is being thrown around to describe the performance - and you can judge for yourself by watching the full 47-minute set in the replies.

Wow, those people stayed for the whole show?!? From what I read, it sounded like everyone left.

It's kind of hard for me to discern anything being unfamiliar with this band and with it being a lower quality record. Besides maybe the members being out of sync and Matt sounding pretty bad in the first couple minutes is there anything particularly bad about this?

he tries to play blue in the face and doesn't know how to play it. at one point in time he says, "you got your moneys worth, didn't you?", just a lot of bad mistakes. he has a song called olivia. the first line of the song is olivia, yet he couldn't even start it well.

Ouf, that is pretty bad then. Kind of surprising, this guy is really a seasoned veteran at this point.
