Usually GA at comerica is only the orchestra pit. Everything else is assigned seating. That is a terrible venue for that show.
Yeah, all GA, wtf? They should've had it at Mesa Amp it that's what their plan was.
yeah I totally agree. HOW YOU GONNA HAVE A DANCE PARTY IN A SEAT I ASK.
It'd sure be nice if Marquee somehow pulled the Presets.
I think the Marquee is waaay too big for the Presets (although I could still see them being booked there).
It's so weird that we're talking about the Marquee being too big for the Presets when Pretty Lights is playing at Comerica Theatre.
I'd like to see Louis CK but am not sure if we like him to the tune of $90, especially with all the other shows going on & that being right before Christmas. (His Phoenix date is on my mom's birthday and we may not even be in town as a result.)
ehh i dunno. louis is pretty much can't miss status for me. that and i really haven't seen a whole lot of live comedy. there isn't a single louis ck standup special that i don't find completely fucking hilarious.I'd like to see Louis CK but am not sure if we like him to the tune of $90
Damn you all for getting me excited about a Presets show that might never happen. Anyone else heading to The Men/Lower Dens show tonight at the Sail Inn?
cool. should be interesting with all the bands on the lineup. Not sure who is headlining. I'm wearing a black and grey striped polo type shirt and doubt I will change beforehand. Def going to be drinking before The Men. And hopefully I can grab one of the show posters with the stained glass art.
Have you guys seen this? Gonna be a wild time!
Both Lower Dens and The Men were great last night. I wasnt at all familiar with Lower Dens and was pleasantly surprised, they had good energy and put on a very trippy almost psychedelic set. I also really enjoyed No Joy. I really hate Sail Inn though. The mixture of the venue and lack of crowd energy put a damper on an otherwise excellent show.
I just wouldn't figure that the popularity gap between the two would be so great that Pretty Lights could be booked at a venue like Comerica (which has hosted the Cure, Arcade Fire, Fiona Apple, etc.) and not have anybody scoff at the venue being too big, while at the same time suggesting that a smaller venue would be too big for the Presets. Although I suppose Trentemoeller attracted 20 people last year, so perhaps that's an accurate picture of where each act is right now. I just recall the Presets having a packed ass tent playing opposite Paul McCartney in 2009.
Well, Pretty Lights are pretty popular. I don't think anyone outside of my Coachella circle knows the Presets.
PL was pretty bad at Sasquatch btw. Getting rid of the live drummer hasn't helped. Had fun at his Tucson show though.
Yeah like gribbz said not many people know the presets. I have a lot of friends that have no idea who they are. pretty lights was sold out well in advanced last time he played the Marquee if I rememebr correctly.
Who do I have to bribe to get the Presets to play in AZ?
