Thanks, Patrick! New space, great solo artists, drink tickets. How can you go wrong?
So no Marc Maron standup? Only interview?
I'm not seeing the "single ticket" link for Marc Maron and some of the other performers. Does this mean that single tickets are already sold out for these performers or have they just not gone on sale yet?
There's also a Satrom/Briz-led glitch art show Saturday night at Track One during Arts & Music @ Wedgewood/Houston:
"At 9 p.m. the warehouse will transform into a massive multimedia experience. The show will explore digital culture, glitch art, hacking, remix culture, and experimental new media. Morgan is seeking Nashville electronic and experimental musicians and video-makers to perform."
That's a really well-made video!
I'm really excited about Phase IV, For All Mankind and Particle Fever, the new doc about the Large Hadron Collider!
What are the odds that the Belcourt will play my 2006 Primer parody short Pizza Pi before the Primer screenings?
Ok, don't answer that.
But here it is:
In my disabled friend's experience (3 Ryman shows that he attended with me, possibly more without me), the Ryman staff have never done more than act befuddled when asked about a disability issue. And scoring one of the few wheelchair accessible seats is very difficult. Which means my friend has to be transferred from his wheelchair to the pew seating.
I'm not indignant, nor is this my soapbox. I'm just relaying my friend's experience. I'd love to hear from other Ryman-goers who are disabled about their experiences.
>>As far as the sound, you can believe what you want but you are always going to be in the minority of people who think the sound at the Ryman is terrible...
That's a perfect illustration of No True Scotsman.
>>Last time I checked all those bluegrass and Grand Ole Opry shows are amplified too.
Yes, they are. And they do sound great. They're lightly-amplified acoustic-instrument shows. Reverberant rooms enhance acoustic-based music and muddy up loud rock music. I don't mean to imply the room is bad. Just not suited for rock shows.
>>I don't believe anyone will make that statement.
I will. Rock shows at the Ryman consistently sound terrible. Because it wasn't built for amplified music. Jeff Mangum's vocal sounded as if the engineer took the 1.5k eq band and turned it all the way up.
>> People who think they are entitled to their perfect sight line while at a rock show ruin it for those of us who like to stand.
Some people with disabilities are unable to stand. I was with a friend who has cerebral palsy at a Ryman Pixies concert a few years ago. We were somewhere in the first five rows of seats (in the disabled seating area if I recall correctly), and the show was ruined because the guy in front of my friend would not sit down. We asked him nicely. And the ushers just shrugged their shoulders.
Not asking for a perfect sight line. I just think people who are unable to stand should be able to see more than the occasional guitar head.
