Yea.. they were solid. They had less technical problems than the other two actually. Balam Acab had a few spots where his sound popped out, and Active child had both feedback issues and poor drum balance. The drummer was playing a hybrid electronic/natural drum, and everytime he would start in on his normal drums they sounded way too loud.
Ive been listening to and seeing them since Is A Real Boy came out. I can't imagine their Baseball days were huge for them like that but I'll have to ask Tessa. Max being sober now and in a better place mentally has definitely changed the band.
O wait, you don't actually give a fuck you pompous ass. I'm ecstatic that we are both awake at this hour to have such an exchange. It's already made my day.
I know none of you give any fucks, but Say Anything had the best crowd of any the 100+ concerts I've been to. They took the band to a level I doubt they've ever been to before.
I've seen them only once, right after In Defense Of The Genre came out, with manchester Orchestra opening, and it was a crazy fun, super sing along show. Really good. i am liking the new album quite a bit too, even if it is really samey now

Krautrock Classics: An Evening of Cosmic German Music
Presented by DUBLAB & The Goethe-Institut Los Angeles
FRI June 1 @ 8PM at the Ford Ampitheatre
Belonging to a particular time (1970s) and place (Germany), the experimental music genre known as ‘krautrock’ heavily influenced the modern electronic and ambient music scene. Internet radio station and creative collective DUBLAB pays tribute to this musical era as local bands Nite Jewel & Friends, Pharaohs, Dntel, Carlos Niño & Friends, ESP, Daedelus, Sun Araw and White Magic perform music by such bands and solo artists as Kraftwerk, Faust, Can, Neu!, Popol Vuh and others in an evening that reinforces the belief that all music is interconnected. Come early and enjoy DJ sets with Turquoise Wisdom and Part Time Punks DJ Michael Stock on Edison Plaza courtesy of DUBLAB DJs.
Full Line Up:
Nite Jewel & Friends (Peanut Butter Wolf, Secret Circuit, Cole MGN & Nedelle Torrisi)
Pharaohs (Suzanne Kraft, Ulrich Krieger, David Scott Stone, Cloudland Canyon & Andres Renteria)
Carlos Niño & Friends (Gifted and Blessed, Dexter Story & Surya Botofasina)
Yeah I think sometime during the 3rd album recording/tour he got off anti-depressents and went clean. Since he got married he's even been pretty open about his new found religious life which I guess has helped him most. You can hear a lot of those themes on the 4th record. It's great to see the change in his live performances. I remember he use to last out at fans that heckled him and was very standoffish on stage.
