these are fantastic photos.
Funny, I told a friend who was at the show that I thought the soundsystem was fantastic. We were standing in the back and heard everything balanced and clear. Sightline is a problem especially from the back, but that’s always been a problem at the Echo.
That was a fantastic show. Primarily, I think the particular sound guy was a bit lacking at the Thermals show, just judging by the time it took him to get the moniters right.
Highlight of the show for me was Thermals drummer, Lorin Coleman, having a fan on full blast in his drum set blowing his hair back every second of the performance. Pro move.
This show was great — the band gets better every time I see them. But I gotta say, I’m still unconvinced about the Echoplex. The space is amazing, but the sound system leaves a lot to be desired. With a better system, this could be one of the best places in the city to see a show, but as things are, it’s pretty underwhelming. Am I alone in thinking this?
