Re: “M.I.A., Rye Rye

Unfortunately, for me, I won't be going to tonight's show but hopefully
there is a mass improvement with the 'Sound Guys' at The Vic. I went
to last night's show and WOW!, What a MESS. I've seen great shows
there and the sound has been amazing, and a lot of it has to do with
the people behind the scene. Seeing a gorgeous Soundcraft board not
being use to its full potential just didn't help dealing with the
feedback on stage.
From sound not coming out of Miss Maya's microphone to her running in
front of her monitor speakers, good thing for the great energy from
the everyone on the dance floor because communication from on and
off-stage were, well Off.
I would love to think that tonight's show will be a much-improved and
a bit fuller for both the venue and the artist. I'm a huge a fan of
The Vic and M.I.A. Besides Lollapalooza, the was my first time seeing
M.I.A. and yes, I had a great time. The DJ was great, the dancers were
bustin' moves, and the people were fun even with fight amongst a few
Limp Biskit wannabes broke out in front of me, I had fun, too bad for
the sound.
If anyone is going to tonight's show and would like to reply on how
the show was, please do. I
Maybe it was just a OFF night to everyone involved.
