Saw them last Sunday, they were kinda asshole-ish to the sound girl. They had feedback coming from the drums and the lead singer was like "You know what's awesome? Being able to hear yourself when you play. You guys in the crowd, there's feedback up here, right?" It kinda put a bad taste in my mouth.

You don't know what it's like. It sucks.

Sincerely,
a musician.
Yes I do, but I don't be a sarcastic dick to the person running sound especially on a show like this where there was extremely rapid festival style soundchecking going on. His tone was ignorant to the task she was performing, and he continued talking about how great it is being able to hear yourself while playing after they'd pinpointed the drums as the site. Does it suck? Yeah. Does it require a bossy tone and smartass remarks? No, especially when there were I think 7 or so other groups that night.

Sincerely,
A musician who plays shows without monitors quite frequently and someone with minimal FOH experience.
