Saw them open for TBS in Chicago last month. I didn't know anything about them before that but I really enjoyed them.

Best LI band currently. Should be up there with the rest of the LI greats in a short time.

"Maybe, Baby" should be the single push, if they plan to do one. Real catchy.

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.

I wasn't there but I imagine it was a tough situation for Mike, the lead singer. GTM's songs have so much going on it's gotta be really difficult to perform without monitors.

I'd chalk this experience to these guys taking their music very seriously because honestly they are the nicest guys in the world if you get the chance to meet them. They probably just didn't want to deliver their fans a lackluster performance.

Sometimes u gotta be stern and almost dickish to the sound person because they'll be like that to you and flat out won't listen to you.
