1. If you saw them in festival settings, that's probably the issue. It's difficult for most bands to get their sound setup correctly for playing outside, and playing in front of a bunch of people who don't know any of your songs isn't all that great either. I haven't seen them in concert, but I've seen a number of live clips on TV and online that were absolutely stellar.

2. They only have one album.

The first time was a festival, 2nd time they opened for Kings of Leon. You know, with the festival settings, there were loads of other bands I saw that I'd never heard of, and I liked them at first listen. I was even pulled in by some lyrics of a few of them.

This band, though, I just can't connect with. The crowd didn't seem all that crazy about them either.

I didn't realize they only had one album (I should've looked that up.) I thought I had been hearing about them for quite some time now. The name was just really familiar to me.

I liked Glasvegas although either the sound sucked or all their songs sound the same. I think I'd appreciate them more if I heard their album before seeing them

It was all just a coincidence that I let out a sarcastic yell just as the lead singer was taking off his jacket. Just.a.coincidence.




And, yeah, I wasn't too impressed with the band. When thanking the band later on, didn't Caleb say something like, "If you understood anything he said."

If you saw them in a big place, that sucks. They should really stick to smaller places. Also, they really shouldn't be playing with Kings of Leon. They only have 1 album, which I like a lot. And I think the lyric is "Here we, here we, here we fucking go."

So in your professional opinion, opening for someone like, say, U2 on a large stadium tour is a bad idea for them?

Yes. Did they open for U2 somewhere? I would have advised against that for sure.

213 will regulate

Nate's got the freaks.


How do I know that?

 
It's a known fact. And, if I'm being honest with everyone....before I got jacked, I happened to be on the exact same track.

i skipped the kol show when it came around here, because 1) i hate kol and 2) wasn't going to spend that much money only to see the opening band when i knew there was no way they could be as awesome at a big place, playing fewer songs, as they were at the small show i saw back in march.

can't offer up any insight as to why i like them, i just do.

Everyone has their faults, Kimmie, everyone.

And yeah, I think Glasvegas is tied with Kelis as the worst opening act I've seen for U2. They made me appreciate U2 so much more in Dublin and London.

I think the band might've sucked too. And yeah, all their songs sound the same. The 'drummer' only knows one type of drumbeat.
