Third Eye Blind/Dashboard Confessional 2015 summer tour
« on: March 09, 2015, 02:47:23 PM »

This has "GUILTY PLEASURE" written all over it, but I thought Third Eye Blind's debut album was pretty fantastic, and I like some of Dashboard Confessional's stuff (in particular their 2004 "A Mission, A Mark" album. Methinks there is a strong chance I'll be at the PNC for this.

I always wanted to see Dashboard Confessional but never got the chance. Unfortunately, I would only want to see him in a small, intimate venue. I think a lot of his charm wouldn't translate to something bigger. :-(

Those two bands are pretty different.

I was never a huge fan of Dashboard Confessional but they were decent.  Most of those emo bands were pretty good.  I didn't need for there to be 20 of them at the same time, that got really tiring.  But on an individual basis, they were alright.

It would be interesting, too to see that audience. If 18-22 was a major depressingly time for mopey teens, those same people now at 28-32 are in the best part of their lives.  So I'd be interested in what their fanbase looks like today.

But Third Eye Blind-- Man, I just always hated them.

The PNC is a pretty small venue, 4300 seats. I saw DC headlining at Riverbend back in the day (2004?) and they were terrific.

Never seen Third Eye Blind in concert, and don't know any of their songs besides the debut album.

Heh. I saw Dashboard play at Bogarts in March 2002. I'll be 36 years old during this tour. I don't "feel my feelings" like I did back then, so I would only go for nostalgic purposes.

Was anyone else at this last Sunday at the PNC Pavilion? Terrific and fun evening, I must say.

DC's Chris Carrerra has aged quite a bit (physically), but I guess we all have in the last 10 years. Dude next to me (I'm guessing late 20s/early 30s) literally knew ALL the lyrics of ALL the songs, wow.

I had never see 3EB before, and really enjoyed their set. The early songs from the debut album and Blue have aged nicely. It blows the mind it's been almost 20 years since the debut album. Massive crowd sing-alongs for this, much more to than for DC, to my surprise.

As to the crowd, ZK, it was exactly as you described it earlier. Hardly anyone young (as in: below late 20s/early 30s).
