    Because they were playing the same night as Peter Gabriel, and he was just too massive.

    The Maccabees were so damn good last night at the Indy! Played a solid 75 minute set that was very professional and dynamic. The new stuff sounded even better than I had hoped. So glad they broke away from the Flo tour to do a headline set in my neighborhood venue last night!

    As already mentioned Peter Gabriel was astounding last night! I have not been that blown away by an artist that I wasn't already super familiar with since Massive Attack in '10 at the Wiltern. Last night it exactly why I love live music. There are few moments I can remember the exact day and moment where I became a huge fan. On 5/23/00 I saw an epic Smashing Pumpkins show the day they announced their break-up and I became a die-hard fan that day. For Tool it was my first time seeing them at Verizon Irvine 11/1/01. And for Peter Gabriel it was last night. I was somewhat familiar with his catalog before last night but after that show I am about to become much more adventurous with his discography! The sound at the Bowl was just impeccable. I was in section in P1 and usually when I'm that far back the sound dwindles a bit...but not last night. The sound was flawless and perfectly loud where I was sitting. Highlights for me were "No Self Control", "In Your Eyes" and my favorite moment of the night "Biko" which was a total spiritual ending to a phenomenal show. So glad I made the decision to go last night....a concert experience that will not be forgotten anytime soon!

    The only time I've seen Peter Gabriel was with Genesis. He looked like this...

    With his hair cut in the middle part..




    He dressed up in costumes. I remember a fly costume, but perhaps it was a bat. I found a bat photo...

    The wings are from Watcher of the Skies probably, the first song off Foxtrot.

    Been a few years since I've seen them... but Mono's easily one of the best live post rock bands out there. Hopefully they haven't lost a step.

    Bottom line- you're not allowed to bring in alcohol from the outside at leased events (that I have ever attended, anyway).

    Tip- because lease events don't allow booze in from the outside, the crowd at the gate gets pretty backed up as people's bags are searched and beverages removed. To get around the crowd, just to the left of the Will Call windows, there is an elevator for handicap access. This is open to everyone. The line is typically very short. They'll scan your ticket at the elevator entrance and you'll take two short rides up to the Garden level of the Bowl without any wait or hassle (or one initial elevator and then stairs for the second part).

    Regarding Peter Gabriel last night: He sounded great. The band sounded great... there was one part during Red Rain where the bass guitar felt a little too low in the mix, but that seemed to get resolved later on... or it could have just been my seats (I was in a terrace box)...

    That said... I hated the stage setup... I think it came together and looked really good every once in a while... but about 85% of the time just made the stage look too cluttered with technical crew...

    I loved the human element (technical crew) moving around the lights and being involved. It gave the whole thing a very natural feel, as opposed to slick and over produced. He did that on his last tour, as well. The crew is not only acknowledged for their contributions, they are literally part of the show.

    I thought New Order were great tonight! Really fun show, and I was surprised that they're doing Joy Division songs - I thought they had made a point in the past of staying away from them. Was nice that the whole crowd stood the whole time (and the place was sold out), although of course everyone was lifeless. And I just don't understand why people will film a song from the back of section B when they can clearly see 400 other cell phone cameras filming it at the same time.

    I am finding many of the big acts I like these days are good at that. Tool and Roger Waters are also excellent from further back. I still get a charge from being up close, but don't find it all that necessary.

    Man, the PG buzz is still happening for me. What a show! I've got Neil Young next. Gonna be interesting to see what he brings to the Bowl- my first time seeing him!

    I'm sure I'll live to regret not seeing this show. Which Joy Division songs did they do? I am guessing Transmission, Love Will Tear Us Apart and Ceremony?

    Well - Ceremony, yes, though that's a grey area. They played "a reworking of" Isolation mid set, then encored with Transmission (I think) and Love Will Tears Us Apart (for sure). I did think it was cool they were playing them. I also thought it was fairly inappropriate to have strobe lights during Isolation.
