    2019 Tour Schedule!

    Oh DCI, how we love your schedule release revisions... As of now (Monday morning, 9:30 ET), this show is called BOTH Tour of Champions - Akron (webpage link and in body of page) AND Tour of Champions - Northeast Ohio (page header) AND the location is now "TBD, Northeast Ohio" and the Google map show Indianapolis...

    2019 Tour Schedule!

    Late-season Massillon show moving to U of Akron stadium! Same lineup as last year PLUS addition of Phantom. Yet again, a fabulous lineup heading into Championship Week AND makes my drive much shorter... Much larger concourses to handle the crowds, that's for sure...
  3. According to Schiit Audio, it's a top-of-the-line multibit DAC... Yggdrasil
  4. I sure hope Arcade Fire's / Peter Gabriel's rights holders are amenable...
  5. Ok, it was used before for a similarly epic show ending, but still great to watch (and listen to!):
  6. I wish I could find a pic of mid-80s Madison with the letter bell covers on them spelling "MADISON" b/c that's (personally) as close as I wanna get to seeing sousaphones in DCI...
  7. Indeed! I also find myself humming/singing/grooving to the tuba(contra ) portion of the dance piece. My daughter just looks at me and I know any explanation (with or without video support) will do nothing to change her opinion of her father's actions...

    Scv - a new era?

    ...and I'd wager many of us would trade places with them in a heartbeat...
  9. Have SWriverstone consult with each corps regarding their show's musical bona fides?
  10. @SWriverstone, "I have a BM degree from Juilliard—which doesn't make me more knowledgeable than anyone else—it simply certifies that I'm very knowledgeable about music—and what distinguishes good music from bad music." So how do the underlined, italicized, and bolded sections of this singular sentence establish anything about you at all, other than you have an (incredibly detailed) opinion of their show? Every other bolded section of your OP represents further delineation of your opinion. Based on this and other posts related to SCV 2018, others seem to agree, a lot of others seem to disagree. I'm sure you'll be providing similar detailed posts on the remainder of the top 12. Looking forward to them.
  11. I’m so excited and all I’m doing is reading posts!
  12. Oh come on 27, only sometimes? Heh...I guess I should have clarified “love” in the classic/literal sense and not the more common “love” in the roll eyes / laughing tear eyes sense... ;) posted from the DrumScorps app
