it felt like that during PTV's set at Riot Fest, there were these 2 girls beside me for the entire duration of their set that were all "I LOVE YOU VIC" or just screaming in general, and that probably demolished my hearing more than the loud music
Yeah I was in Lowell last night and down on the floor. All the girls prior to PTV's set just kept saying "omg when Vic comes out I might faint, i just might, omg, omg omg."
Here is the thing, PTV put on a good show, no doubt, but they were also the hardest to understand all night. I don't know if it was the bass/guitars were just too loud, but I couldn't make out any of the lyrics. And I know a few PTV songs and it just sounded weird. Because when ATL/ADTR were up I clearly could hear all of it.
Also, Tsongas Arena in Lowell has the worst setup for a show. I feel bad for those who wanted to see TWY and were outside in line for 2 hours.
