Re: “Neutral Milk Hotel w/Elf Power at the Ryman, 2/4/14

So when are we going to admit that seeing bands at the Ryman sucks?

You're screwed if you're on the floor behind the balcony poles, it's not loud enough from any seat, and any number of minor sidesteps warrants the wrath of the AARP maroon blazer brigade and their accusatory flashlights.

But the worst of it is the way that the audience collectively submits to SITTING DOWN during the show. What??!!! The history of our beloved Mother Church certainly makes it a special spot that is perfectly appropriate for any number of pew-sittin events - but rock shows? Last night's show sold out in like 4 minutes to 2000+ fans who have not seen this band play our dear city in over 15 years - and you're just gonna SIT THERE? Jeff had to tell people to stand up! I was embarrassed that he was talking to MY city. And as far as I could tell, the balcony still stayed seated throughout the show.

I thankfully travelled to other cities on this NMH tour where the audience matched the energy on the stage - an energy that I know was in that room last night, but just seemed bottled by the venue - and a plain old concert hall in Memphis is the place that felt like the real church for those of us who you've (appropriately) labeled as disciples.

Now as a disciple, of course I loved the show. But I've lost my warm fuzzies with the Ryman.
