One of the many Perfect Duluth Days was punctuated with I had hoped be the Perfect Duluth night … an evening with WILCO live on stage at the DECC. I had bought tickets months before and had been anticipating the night ever since. Unfortunately, instead of waking up this morning, thinking what a GREAT concert, I woke up thinking…WTF was wrong with the people in our row at the concert. The self-indulgent, self-centered, group that could not or would not just stand there, dance and enjoy the amazing music the band was putting out.As early as the second song, they were excusing themselves to get out of the row to go get another beer, smoke another cigarette, go pee, or whatever they thought was more important than enjoying the LIVE music coming form the stage. As a matter of fact, I can’t remember ONE song that we were not interrupted by “excuse me can we get by.” ….SERIOUSLY….ONE SONG! Just one uninterrupted song is all I ask. THEN, I had to listen to you tell your girlfriend/boyfriend what happened when you went out and do what ever you thought was so much more important than listening to the band… SERIOUSLY…just ONE FULL SONG! The kicker came near the end of the concert when two more of their friends came and begged us to trade seats with them so they could be with the rest of their friends… by this time, I was ready to be ANYWHERE else than where we were…SERIOUSLY…JUST ONE UNINTERRUPTED SONG!
It was a great concert, and I am not saying that I did not enjoy the music but SERIOUSLY! If you want to talk and go smoke and drink so much you have to pee every two minutes, go to a club, or listen to the music on the radio, don’t go to a LIVE concert…you missed the whole point, and a great expereince!
