I had high hopes for last night, but the show was pretty boring. I've bought their last 3 albums and it's all getting to sound the same now. The crowd was almost as boring as the band- a real law school group if I've ever seen one, and believe me, I have.

Well ... hoping I'll have a better experience in this venue. I can deal with boring lawyers when i am in my lawn chair....I think

Is that Kurt Vonnegut's illegitimate son?

I WISH I had been near the boring lawyers... it was pretty hard to enjoy the show with the yammering idiots next to us. Why bother even going to see a band if you're just going to yell over the music the entire time??

Herewith please find my client's demand for you to cease and desist the defamatory comments of and concerning the aforementioned "boring lawyers."
Boring lawyers are people too. We have feelings.

i was at that show last night. i had never heard any of bt's music before, and i thought they were good/almost great. not bad for a first ever experience. i see alot of groups/people play, and these guys were better than most, complex, but accesible tunes, really well played, pro stuff. great harmonies and guitar leads. def diff than most other one beat junk these horrible music days. anyone seeing them for free tonight should feel like they got their money's worth. as for the crowd, i was suprised how into it everyone was. i'd never even heard of them before, for crissakes! laywers my arse. i actually thought there were hotter than usual chicks. what was that other guy lookin at anyway?

That's funny, I was there last night with my attorney friend (no joke) and he was probably singing the loudest and dancing the most of anyone around us. Maybe the boring people were accountants?

I wasn't really familiar with their music beforehand but they sounded great. Very tight live.
