Hey guys, Stevo here. I know everybody here digs the band, otherwise they wouldn't be here. I just want to say, like I said before in the other thread, that if you want to support Blanche and show them how much you love them it's better to go see them live when they play instead of just listening to downloaded bootlegs.|
Yeah, I've got a few bootlegs of various bands around my place, but how's the band supposed to know you really love them if they can't see your smiling faces while they sing right To You? While personal recording can be entertaining, nothing's as good as the real thing.
Now that Tastefest is over, they're going to be taking a little break for a while, what with Jack Raconteuring about, Feeny and American Mars (The man left the tastefest show to drive to LANSING to Play a Show RIGHT AFTER!!), Dan and Tracee's active social calender, and of course, Lisa's Jazzercize, they need a bit of a break.
The reason that they didn't play as many new songs at this last show was because people were already downloading and copying the show they did at the Ark.
It's ruining the surprise of the new album!! Shhh! Shh!!
I know January's a long way away, but be patient. It'll be worth it.
So downloading maybe isn't the best way to spread the word of Blanche. Instead, for those who don't live in or around the Detroit metro area, save your money, gather your friends, plan ahead, and pile all into your friend's car and come up and see 'em play live. THEN You'll be doing your part to make this band go down in History!
