I've seen TBS live 3 times unintentionally. At each performance, Adam was very pitchy and made the crowd sing all the parts he couldn't. I think major fans are fooled by the collective spirit of the concert and because so many people are singing the words.
I couldn't agree more with this comment...during the "fazzi days" tbs sounded unbelievable....i saw them around 5 times then and every performance was super tight...it seems like since the old crew came back they feel like just being "back" is enough. Sean Cooper doesn't measure even close to Rubano....I counted multiple times the bass was out of time at bamboozle....bass and drums are the foundation of the songs, and if either slows or speeds up it results in a bad performance...anyway Dashboard Confessional crushed it so at least i got my moneys worth on one band
