    Yea I don't see how people took that the wrong way. Obviously a lot of things the guys say are sarcastic and in a joking manner. Don't take everything so seriously...

    One of the interesting points discussed is the crowds and way that D&T will play accordingly, I hope for a good mix of quieter songs but not sure how that will transfer at something like SPAC. Songs like Cry Freedom, IBYU, Spoon (long shot) are amazing in a small venue. I just imagine thousands of people yelling "Watchtower!!!" through them.

    I can tell you how it will translate. Fucking terribly.


    I think people are drastically underestimating what a shit show this summer is going to be. I can't even fathom how awful it will be being on the Spac lawn for this.

    This is a fact. Alternative to what the management would like you to believe.

    I appreciate true talk and for that I don't have a problem with anything that was said. Too many blow hands here that get their panties in a bunch when someone dare be negative or different than their usual "omg everything is great!" Mentality

    Woof. Good thing these guys aren't in the entertainment business--I could barely make it to minute 5. All this talk of disappointment and expectations--you sound like sad parents.

    If the band did play Dodo do you think some ethereal joy would be unlocked in your brain? That all your dreams would finally come true? Because if not, I can't imagine being such a sally about it not getting played.

    Dodo is such a weird song to be so hard up for. I could see wanting it to check it off. But man....

    The way Matt was talking you'd think Dave personally guaranteed Dodo was going to played.

    This thread is great. I'm not going to listen to the podcast, as I'm sure it wouldn't live up to the hype promised by this thread.

    I, too, appreciate true talk and for that I don't have a problem with anything that was said in this thread. Too many blow hands here that get their panties in a bunch when someone dare be positive or different than their usual "omg everything is awful!" Mentality

    Could be more entertaining with a voice from 2009 or later, for perspectives sake.

    we talked about that. I specifically said that Matt and Joe's enthusiasm for D+T is not as high as someone who's never seen them, and pointed out that the South never gets D+T



    but whatevs...






    (and the Dodo thing is actually a joke, but no one got it so don't feel bad - I even mentioned how they never played it previously in the podcast.)

    but that person would be, like, about eight years old. I Need a Word would be his or her favorite song.

    I've always thought it would be interesting on podcasts to have someone who has a musical background, can see things from a different perspective

    Being a relatively new fan (first show in 07) as compared to most. Excitement for me is very low for this D&T tour. Maybe it's because I saw them in 2010 in DC and at the AC caravan, but I don't anticipate these shows really having anything for diehard fans to perk up about. Hope I'm wrong but I expect everything to be pretty standard.
