Went to biffy clyro playing at AECC last night.
gone are my days of wanting to be up the front being uncomfortable - i hate crowds tbh.
so stood up the back and i found i could watch the gig on any number of 4/5 inch screens around the hall at around my eye level
surely these people could watch a DVD of the gig at high volume ?
the occasional photo , or the occasional photo perhaps but some folk were filming the whole gig through their phone.
i guess im probably alone in my thinking what a waste of a gig - what ever floats your boat i guess . shame it blocks out the view for those behind you - we just moved to a different point
Was a great show from biffy though ,the sound, the lights and Vjaying worked real well with the music - been a while since ive been to a big gig as good as that. last gig i saw at AECC years ago was Black rebel motorcycle club (supporting kaiser chiefs and killers - which kept the mrs happy , but i was there for the BRMC) and the sound wasnt that great and none of them really put on a show beyond the music.
