hello_london_x @ 01:45 pm: Sonar Show...
I had never seen YLT live, and they were actually my first concert.


Honestly, I think I'm going to avoid seeing shows in the future. They are not so good live.
I was really excited about going, and then after the SECOND 15 minute song without any lyrics with Ira and his uncombed dryer lint head seizing on his guitar standing too close to the amp. making it screatch, then whacking his guitar against the stand.. I left.

I feel bad, like maybe I'm not a true fan.
But I think I'll stick to the CD's, and pretend I never went.

That's sad, but maybe it's for the best that you won't have a 2-hour long crappy show memory...haha. I do agree that the guitar freak-outs can go on a little too long, but I love the intimacy of their quieter songs played live.

See, they did Tears are In your Eyes (which is one of my favorites) but the PA system sort of sucked for the quiet songs, and you couldn't hear them, as well as the fact people wouldn't shut up.

I'm sort of mad about that.
