The Quick and Easy Boys are playing Seattle Thursday the 26th at the Nectar Lounge, and Saturday the 28th in Bellingham at Wild Buffalo. There are guitar gods who are a 10, like Joe Satriani, Buckethead, Stevie Vai, and maybe Ymgwie Malmsteen, but every other guitar player from your favorite band is a 7 at best. The guitar player for the Quick and Easy Boys is about an 8 or 9.
They are a party live. They play cover songs you love, and usually they get really wasted on stage. The bass player and drummer are great musicians as well. If you have nothing better to do, and you live near these venues, go stare at one of the greatest guitar players you'll see, and the cover charge will be less than $10.
Sauce doesn't care who you are. Sauce wants you to want it. When sauce notices you staring, sauce invites you to try it out. Sauce isn't looking for the right one. Sauce wants everyone to enjoy it. You can go to a store and buy as much sauce as you want. You can roll around in a bathtub filled with sauce. You can get your fill of sauce up to five times per day! Boobs cannot do any of this. The only people who regularly get their fill of boobs are professional athletes.
It's strange though. I've never seen the Roseland separate the floor, but there are two options for GA floor. $25 for all ages, and $45 for 21+. There's also balcony tickets. Any idea of how they're going to handle this? I want to be as close as possible for it.
Edit: Whatevs. I bought an all ages ticket since it was cheaper.
They cram the kids in the corner, merch booth side. Teenage Zappa fans barely exist, so the show would be 21+, but Zappa's music is one of those educational experiences that dads like to bring their teenagers to. Putting them in the corner allows that. You won't have a chance to be in front of the stage, but $20 really is a significant savings.
At some point in life you're going to have to admit to yourself that your opinion isn't fact and that it's possible to disagree with you without being wrong. Also, assuming that everyone who disagrees with you is a childish idiot is a pretty awful way to come across. I'm left wondering when you should take your own advice and stop acting like a high schooler.
Until then, I'm forever done talking to you. Have a good day.
I'll try to be as transparent as I can so you understand how off-based your responses were.
Check out the difference in how the following two people say they dislike a band, and I'll exaggerate a tiny bit to make this clear.
Person #hashtagsareforidiots #1 - I don't like NIN. Person #hashtagsareforidiots #2 - I don't care if they are handing out $10 bills, and Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders are giving handos, and all living members of the Beattles, the Who, Nirvana, and N'Sync join NIN on stage, I hate NIN's music, I'll never like it, don't even get to me try to like it, because I won't listen to you, and I don't care about live performances anyway, and you will never catch me there, and I just want to see Passion Pit again.
I don't care if person #hashtagsareforidiots #1 doesn't like NIN, I stated earlier I'm not a huge fan myself. I don't care if person #hashtagsareforidiots #2 doesn't like NIN, but I'm still going to tell him he's a pompous little shit. It has nothing to do with NIN.
I'm not a fan of how high school kids post. They aren't interesting although they think they are, they talk about themselves all the time, they make a lot of empty posts like "wow" and "no way," and they don't actually think about their posts, they just spout off random comments. I've had 1.500 posts to diagnose nick's style, and often he posts like a high school kid. There were a collection of nick posts arguing with Cysquatch which I found to be very immature, and he was spouting off insults without trying to make valid points. Then HG chimed in to back him up. It's positive reinforcement for an unwanted behavior. So I threw my hat in the ring, and told him I thought he was being juvenile. The further we got into the discussion, the more he acted like a high school kid. For example, a high school kid might say, "I hate NIN, always will," while someone with more maturity might say, "I don't like NIN, maybe I'll end up liking them years from now, but they aren't my thing." A high school kid might say, "Don't try to talk me into going to see NIN, because it won't work." Someone with more maturity might say, "so they put on a really cool visual show? Maybe I'll check it out for a bit to see what all the fuss is about. I don't want to regret missing it years from now." A high school kid (and HG in this example) might say, "Live performances don't mean anything, I want to sing along to songs I know." Someone with more maturity might be more willing to branch out and try new things, maybe get away from their comfort zone occasionally.
There was no argument on my end. This wasn't me trying to be right, and name call people who don't agree with me. This was me making an observation that a regular is posting like a little kid, and telling him. If you think I'm an asshole, you can tell me. That's not name calling. That's also an observation.
I sincerely hope nick's dream comes true, and one of the three headliners next year is a band he hates so he can get a better spot at a side stage, and I hope he gets the chance to curse my name and laugh about how angry he thinks I'll be that he is skipping a headliner. It sounds very high-school.
Are you seriously arguing that it's not ok for someone to dislike a band? Just because someone says they dislike a band that many other like, they are automatically misinformed? Here, call me misinformed for this: I don't like Primus. At all. I haven't liked them in the past, and I probably will never like them. I have no interest in seeing them. I understand they're talented and put on a good live show. I don't care. I actually feel the exact same way about NIN. Boy, I must be misinformed, right? There's no chance that I came to those conclusions based on my preferences and opinions about music, rather than my lack of knowledge on the subject? Your statement is totally asinine.
And your analogy is stupid, just like the last time we mixed words. You need to work on those.
You should write more paragraphs about how you missed the point. Here, I'll get you started:
"I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point, I missed the point."
It's okay rustuuu, when NIN headlines next year we can hold hands and skip blissfully to another stage while wonk's face turns red and he sputters nonsensically because his fragile mind can't handle the fact that sometimes people disagree with him.
Uninteresting and clueless with a false sense of worth, and wants everyone to know about it. Just like every other high school kid.
I see where Nick is coming from, but skipping one of the best live bands out there for a smaller bigfoot set would be a huge mistake in my personal opinion. Regardless if you like NIN or not, their shows are seriously killer.
That's fair. Bottom line is, I just can't justify seeing a band for their live performance alone. I listen to music, for, well, the music, and I don't like NIN's music. I've listened to a lot of it. Not a fan at all. So if there's a band I actually enjoy playing on another stage at the same time, that's where I'll be.
For the slow-minded superfans: I am not insulting NIN. They're probably great. I, personally, don't like them. This is not a dig at your musical taste or the band's artistic merit. It is a statement of preference. It will not change no matter how much you bitch. That is all.
Closed minded, very immature, and even more pompous. Are you actually 15?
Why attend festivals if live performances are meaningless? Invest in headphones and stay home.
Although Cyscquatch is completely wrong about comparing the popularity of NIN to one of the biggest rock bands in the world, I too thought nick's comment was extremely pompous. I'm not much of a NIN fan, but Trent Reznor has been leading the charge to make visually spectacular shows for years. To dismiss that as, "I'll get a better spot for a band I like on the Bigfoot," is already juvenile, but even moreso considering NIN does not appeal to the masses like Mumfords. The band playing opposite NIN would be that up and coming indie rock band the radio loves, not a band we all appreciate like Primus.
At least Accelerated Cheese made an argument, which I couldn't completely disagree with. You just made a stupid fucking comment that was pointless. Now you blow up like a fucking idiot and start name calling. I suppose I might have came off a little harsh, but If you don't want to make an intelligent argument then fuck off dude. Bash away I hope it makes you feel better about your life, and your broken bike.
From what I can see, the 'stupid fucking comment' that Nick made with which you disagree was that there just might be a better band that Nine Inch Nails? This is one of the most absurd board blow-ups since I don't know when. Like, what the fuck is even going on?? Is this like when Burrito and Dr. Garbanzo were howling at each other as a spoof because they actually love each other, or is cysquatch actually that ready to go to war over Trent Reznor?
Personally: I've seen Nine Inch Nails, and a top-notch Bigfoot headliner would probably entice me away from a second opportunity to see them again.
Additionally: Chill the fuck out. You're acting like a NIN fan from 1997.
And HG, who the fuck are you to critique an internet argument? You spout off personal attacks before even making a thought, and the validity of those thoughts are like flipping a coin. Nick did win with the insults, but the whole thing felt like a cry for HG acceptance. It also felt like he takes the internet way too seriously.
