consensus

I have no music credentials, but I just have to say I agree with both of the previous reviews. Squeeze sounded way too drum-heavy, for sure. I either happened to be walking out of the show behind one of you (having this conversation), or it was a common sentiment. But, still a very fun concert and overall quite good. ... Read more

Great night.

Agree with everything already mentioned. Sound was a bit off for Squeeze. I’d read that Squeeze were on last typically then I heard they switch each night. Overall excellent evening. Glen Tilbrook guitar playing is still marvelous. I was surprised how good PF were too don’t know as many of their songs as Squeeze but a great show by both bands. ... Read more

My thoughts on the show

I thought the psychedelic furs were great. I wish I could give the show 5 stars. I was disappointed not by squeeze, but whoever the idiot was that was doing the sound for them. He had the drums totally drowning out the rest of the band. Apparently he never heard their music before. Squeeze's music is not about loud ponding drums. I find it amazing how you can have one band sound perfect. Excuse my language, but have the headline band sound like shit. I suggest whoever was mixing the sound. Should take off his headphones and actually listen to what the band sounds like to the audience. I love the music of squeeze and I feel bad for them that some idiot ruined their performance. Just for the record I do know what I am talking about. I have been booking bands for the last 40 years. ... Read more
