Quote from: dexter on Nov 29, 2015, 04:37 pmThere were very few talkers night 4. The only jackasses were literally right behind me. 5 people jammed into 2 seats just non stop talking and partying and the annoying 45 year old drunk womqn with them. Go to a fucking bar and listen to some George thoroughgood on the jukebox and talk for 3 hours straight. I looked around the entire orchestra and aside from a few random people whispering a few words one to one, I had the misfortune of being near the worst jackasses in the place. Everyone else in the venue seemed to be quiet and focused. I tried to not let it affect me, really tried for the first half of the show to tune them out but they ruined any slower song. Then I had to grapple with do I ask them to please be quiet and risk it's worse? Finally I couldn't take it and asked them to be please speak quietly during the slow songs. The guy was understanding but his lady yells "what did he say? Really?!" It worked for about one song, they actually tried, but then it just went back to annoying. Oh well, still really loved being there but it really sucks how clueless people can really negatively affect a show.

Quote from: bonzai on Nov 30, 2015, 10:38 amI figured that I would at least get my post count up to one on here. Such an amazing run although I still can't decide if night 1 or 4 was my favorite! Also, so wonderful to meet so many more of this community over the week. Cheers and hopefully I'll see you guys again soon!
Quote from: oistheone on Nov 29, 2015, 03:37 pmTo me, a definitive ranking of shows is impossible. Even with the most bitchin' setlist on paper, everyone's experience will vary greatly. I've found that it really doesn't matter what they play as much as where you are and who you're surrounded by. Having said that -- these were the moments that blew me away:[Full disclosure, I was only at night one and two and listened to three and four thanks to the very gracious soul who streamed]I Love You All The Time -- is there a classier bunch of dudes than MMJ? Not only paying tribute with a moving moment of silence (which THANK GOD succeeded), but then OWNING the song! Phone -- GOOD GOD! Best version I've seen, hands down. Never seen 'em add so many rockin' crescendos to the end of this song. Holy shit. Carl was going fuckin' nuts, pounding it like he was playing the world's most rockin' version of whack-a-mole. I've never seen him be so musically violent with his axe. State of the Art!!! Works sooooo well as a Jacket tune, hope this one sticks around. THE POWER'S GOIN OUT!Picture of You -- the jam ending NEEDS to stick around and be played WAY more often, it turns a soft number into one of the most powerful jams in the MMJ canon. The triple-headed power punch ending of night two -- who could not leave the Beacon absolutely BUZZING after the BEASTLY PUNCH of AEIOU-Anytime-Mahgeetah?!IWBTWYD -- complete silence during a JJ acoustic tune = complete bliss. You could hear the texture of his guitar strings it was so quiet in there. Transcendent. All the Basement Tapes tracks. Down on The Bottom is a personal favorite but Nothing To It and Quick Like A Flash EXPLODE live!CARRIED AWAY!! Anytime Carl gets extra space to rock, WATCH OUT! I swear Carl kept looking at Tom and Jim as if to say "I'm done soloing now" and Jim and Tom DEFIANTLY shook him off and sent him to new heights! Also, is there a better backup singer in the world than JJ?!Just Because I Do!! Jim strummin' the chords leading up to the blast-off intro was the ultimate "buckle-up" moment. TOUCH ME PT1 from night two -- Carl screaming I NEED A HUMAN RIGHT BY MY SIDE in my face while Jim prowled the stage like some sort of possessed cosmic wizard was INTENSETOUCH ME PT2->COBRA->RUN THRU from the final night. Only heard the audio from the latter but HOOOO MAMA I could feel the rock from 500 miles away. What a segue.
Quote from: dexter on Nov 30, 2015, 12:29 pmi cant pick a favorite.. but im obviously way in the minority leaning on night 3. everything kinda lined up for me, could be a function of who i went with and where we sat and the people arround us.. but if i pick one as a favorite, whatever finsihed 4th is by the slimmest of margins..

Quote from: terry k on Nov 30, 2015, 09:04 pmJust curious. We had 5 guys in the balcony doing the same thing. Interestingly there was a 45 year old woman who told them to be quiet 2 or 3 times. So did I. Finally I put my hand on one of their shoulders and said if you guys wanna have a fuckling coffee clutch there's a ladies room down stairs. They quieted down.
