My Bloody Valentine, November 2013. (at House of Blues)
what the fuck is this shit
my thoughts exactly
Monitor Tech posted about their show on reddit. Stage was 115dB at the lead vocal mic. FOH hit 125 at some parts. Absolutely absurd. That’s stupid fucking loud. No reason for any of that. There are a lot of nice amps in this picture, plenty are capable of really nice tones, but there is no reason to have this many. The Edge of U2 doesn’t even have a wall this big or this loud. Levels that high are a danger to not only the band on stage but the crew that has to deal with it each night and the audience who thinks they’re hearing a “great show” when all it really is is noise.
I have a friend who assists them on tour, which is awesome for them. But 125db at FOH is stupid, nothing about that is clever or inventive.
"Hey I know lets form a band and be really loud all the time"
Seems childish to me. Anyone can do this.
I understand they are a historic band with huge following but I’d be happy to save my ears and not see them live.
Glow in the dark strings. Is this really what life has come to.
Pyramid stack fun. Always ratio in more subs thanks. (at Epic)
