Re: Tour Flag

Hi, I manage the official tour flags. How the flags have generally worked in the past, with the exception of the very first one (which I was not involved with), is as follows: 1) A tour is announced 2) Fans express interest in having a flag for said tour 3) If I feel there is enough interest I will ...

Oxygen Thief in the USA

I'm super excited that Barry will be coming to the USA to play some songs for us! These are the dates, they're all house shows (except for Boston, which is at a private space instead) and anyone is welcome if you'd like to come down. Each link is the corresponding Facebook event page: 9/2 - Manhatta...

Re: Sexually Harassing My Way To The Front.

pretty sure if anyone ever touched me at a gig i'd break their fingers at the very least.

i have been at events where security tried to hold onto me to move me out of the venue and even then i swatted them off. just cause they're in a fancy jacket with a walkie doesnt mean they get to grab my arms.

Re: By request

Nah, I don't agree with "lame". Maybe predictable, perhaps tedious, but not lame. I would use the adjective "special". Not something done all the time. I saw Weezer play Pinkerton, and the majority of it I had never heard live. And never will again most likely. Yes it was totally nostalgic. In a ma...

Yeah I definitely don't like the idea of signs at FT shows, that seems very inconsiderate to your fellow fan

Re: Boston Calling/Cambridge

yeah. that sinclair show was my 55th gig of theirs and there was just something about it. once they came out and ballad started, it was like the whole crowd went "OH ITS ON" and it certainly was. the set list was fantastic, as was the performance and reception. when people ask me how i can see a ban...

Re: When Did We Get So Fucking Old?

She saw The 1975 at the end of last year and gave Matt this necklace. About 3 months later, I heard a screech coming from her room. She apparently just noticed that the background shot of him she had on her laptop, was one where he was wearing that necklace. Freaked her out. Anyway.... you're never...

Re: Broken Piano..

Seeing Frank playing it at the Portsmouth Guildhall show in February this year was quite frankly (if you pardon the pun) incredible. It was possibly one of the greatest songs that I've ever seen live. When frank ran forward and all the lights came on I think a little part of me wept with joy... por...

Re: When Did We Get So Fucking Old?

Not everyone has the option to tell the band face to face that they loved the gig they've just witnessed. It doesn't make them faceless or desperate and it doesn't make the sentiment insincere if they tweet the band to tell them instead. I also think its very interesting how even a few years ago we...

Re: When Did We Get So Fucking Old?

"Fanboy", and likewise "Fangirl", are not dirty words!!!! People seem to think being called one is bad, that being one is bad, but I disagree entirely. Being a fanboy/girl means you are passionate about whatever it is you're a fan of. You are dedicated and invested and the reason that thing succeeds...
