I plan on attending Statesboro, GA show this Sunday. It is also streaming on flo, but I am going to finally see a LIVE show since 2019.

Stoked!

I've heard a rumor that INT will be performing four thirty-three (4'33") by John Cage.

 

Finally Liahona, I get to be the one who texts "are they really that good?" and you get to be the one who answers back "yes!"

No secrets. Just some hype from you please.  A heads up on what to look for...

I don’t know any details but they have been continuously working on the show with more cleaning.  Getting music and visuals tight.  And some design staff are headed their way today.  So maybe they are bringing some GE with them to layer in.  LOL.  Rest assured Boston is focused on only themselves and getting the show better.

BAC wins! I’ll have to ask Stephen to close all the windows so the Crownies crying doesn’t keep me up all night. Eat ‘em up Boston!

If BAC wins tomorrow night there will be a lot of unhappy Crownies tomorrow night

I have no idea what tomorrow's outcome will be, but the work BAC has been doing at Wake Forest Stadium is geared toward the larger goal the corps has.

So, I've watched the show in the theater and now on various other platforms that shall remain nameless, which could be affecting my opinion, but...

It's not doing it for me personally. The tango section feels completely out of place and like it stops the show dead, in the same way that the trombone feature going into the Rocky theme did in 2019--there's no real energy to it in what I've seen. In some respects it feels a bit like just pulling out the bag of tricks left over from when Keith Potter came north--the tango feels a bit like a rehash of El Tango de Roxane in Crown 2016, the staggering out of the company front in the Lacrimosa read to me at first blush like a rehash of the crawling out from beneath the red screen in Crown 2015.

It feels...cold. In a way that 2019 did, and 2018 didn't. Everything is technically good, but the overall package leaves something to be desired for me. Partially because...

I think I'm instinctively comparing this show to the last time they did a show about the Garden of Eden, and I liked this show more when they did in 2009. That show had some fun to it, in a way that this one doesn't quite yet for me. Though part of that may be demographics, in that in 2009 I was a guy who had just graduated high school, so I was the exact right age for that show to hit me in a certain way.

Anyway. Not sure why I posted this, but I needed to write it down somewhere, and this seemed like the best venue for it. And I look forward to seeing the show grow on me through the rest of the season.

Somehow, this is spot on to a tee what I've been thinking but wasn't unable to put into words.
