    2019.03.23 - Austin, TX - IndyCar Classic at Circuit of the Americas

    is anyone here going to this gig? high probability of rain all day + loud cars + shortened set (likely tailored to the masses -- half of which get automatic entry merely by being ticketholders to the race) are making this a tough sell for me to attend...

    VIP/CID - Early Entry Disaster woes

    all kinds of weird logistics have been in play at various gigs to date as far as GA/floor/pit entry is concerned, so...until a further course of facilitating a consistent, coordinated entry is employed, it's a crapshoot.

    VIP/CID - Early Entry Disaster woes

    depending on the size of the arena floor, the "barrier" holds closer to 200 from the far edge of stage right, along/around the catwalk, and to the far edge of stage left (also dependent on the girth of the people on the "barrier", ha). 'hundreds' may have been overstating a bit, but there is definitely enough room for both tiers of VIPs and at least a few lucky GAs to get to the barrier, if coordinated correctly.

    VIP/CID - Early Entry Disaster woes

    the band gets their typical cut of a general GA ticket, a very small slice of the VIP upcharge, and CID gets the remainder. most of the premium goes to CID. also, the "barrier" is very large when considering the existence of a ramp, so, easily, a few hundred VIPs (both tiers) and a good number of lucky lottery GA peeps can get "barrier" spots. so long as five minutes successfully gets VIPs on to the floor prior to any general GA peeps, i think that's sufficient. execution, however, is another topic altogether.

    VIP/CID - Early Entry Disaster woes

    i was stopped at a light. we would be talking about illegality if i was on the move and posting simultaneously. parked now at the venue. mishmash of people still milling about the premises outside.

    i'm driving around rn and it's a nice 15º C. it gets hot here, but not in Feb.

    VIP/CID - Early Entry Disaster woes

    at least they didn't schedule houston / dallas on consecutive nights like last tour, which resulted in all kinds of hell.

    VIP/CID - Early Entry Disaster woes

    VIPs get a 5 minute head start to the floor before general GA is allowed inside.

    i’m on board with them cramming more in, it just needs to be crammed with a better mix of material. and i’m used to/enjoy an elaborate production, but there is just SO much going on all over the place...all the time...it’s hard to know where/at what to look at times. EDIT: still getting used to the new forum interface, lol.

    at least resistance wasn’t played. and contrary to matt’s thinking, the crowd reacted decently well when snippets of older songs were played. and i agree about the speedrunning through their career bit. and not just re: the medleys. the whole gig felt like a race to the finish line, with very little let-up and a whole lot of insane stage production that almost overtakes the music at times. which is exactly what i expected.

    Simulation Theory Tour Live gig discussion — spoiler friendly

    almost every song has some tricked up component to it. from the dancers, to wand wielders, to men firing CO2 out of cannons, to gigantic robots, to hydraulic components everywhere, to big drums, to a vintage video game that matt plays for have a second, to confetti/streamers, to people with manual leaf blowers blowing all the tenant of such around, to a gigantic suspended alien...and more. it was almost like a cirque de soleil show set to rock music rather than a rock gig.

    it does. but when it's almost in the middle of the set, it's not quite so bad. they have people with handheld leafblowers to blow off all the confetti/streamers off the stage b/c they have, well, a lot more things to do before the gig concludes.

    unless you count part of algorithm as a "piano" song, then yes, a keyboard played by matt was only executed during dig down.

    they've arrived...but i have to code them w/ ardunio relatively similarly to the setlist songs within the next 12-18 hrs before the first gig to make them relevant to the chosen lighting. ain't happenin'. i long for the former, leaner times with fewer props, gigs that are far less ostentatious, fewer bells and whistles, and better setlists... ...yet here we are.
