Top serious rant: WTF is up with the crowds at 9:30 Club? I was there Tuesday for the Jose Gonzalez show and almost lost my shit because of the incessant talking. First off, Jose's music is quiet--singer/songwritery--and dude barely opens his mouth to sing. But the people in the crowd didn't give a shit about the concert-goers who actually wanted to enjoy the music, and they totally ignored the "please respect the quiet nature of the music" flyers that the club had posted up on all the walls. Because the show wasn't sold out, people's chatting was magnified and you could actually pinpoint the perpetrators anywhere in the club, it was so obvious. Why would you go to a show and pay $20 to talk over the music? Go to a bar!
