his last show here at prospect park (with the crazy downpour) was the shizz

What a shame and waste of opportunity of him being here. T5 is a such a horrible sounding disaster. The Celebrate Brooklyn shows were some of the best shows I have EVER seen in the many years I have lived here. Best to stick with that glorious memory as opposed to going to that horrible place where it will be impossible to tell what song is being performed.

Why is T5 so bad? Please elaborate. Thanks, I don't live in NY and keep hearing horrible things about this venue. Is it really that bad or are people just blowing it out of proportion?

to 12:48,

terminal 5, when sold out (which it most likely will be for this one), is a horrible place to enjoy music. the fire code must allow about 500 too many people in the door. there is a ton of empty space on the balconies with no view and way to many sweaty bodies on the main floor. even for a dance party, it's too crowded. seriously dreadful.

how do we get rid of this place, or at least make it more enjoyably? sell 500 fewer tickets is a start.

artists, please don't play at this venue. PLEASE.

thank you.

What's T5 like? Imagine a dance club, that has decided they'd rather do concerts. And it's all run by douchebags from some large corporate entity. Basically, it has no soul, and is all about $$$.

The sound at T5 is just terrible. I have no problem with sightlines, it is the crappy sound that I have a problem with.

It's a beautiful space, and yes, it feels exactly like a dance club that has decided to do live shows, but the sound is absolutely dreadful, and it really can't be improved. Most people don't know better, so you have to give credit to the folks running the joint. They know the majority of the public are too dumb to know the difference.

Gogol Bordello will open the Monday show under the name Los Raspizdotos. Not the full band, not a full set.

Posted by Anonymous | September 4, 2011 2:06 PM

Anyone know set times tonight (Sunday)?

Every song had the same exact arrangement.Reggae > punk double time> classic rock ending.Literally all but maybe 3 songs had the same arrangement and tempo and vibe.Couldn't tell the difference between any songs.For such an eclectic and storied career & songbook this was fucking tortuous repetitive mess Of a show.Bummer.

Posted by Anonymous | September 5, 2011 12:53 AM

I agree. Going into double-time during every song got repetitive after a while.

Posted by Anonymous | September 5, 2011 12:08 PM

Don't forget the repetitive chants of "Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey"...
