The music is what's important, but I loves me some banter, and when I'm watching a band that is really good at it, there's always some asshole who has to yell out "just shut up and play". I remember a scene from an R.E.M. concert in Toronto, where Stipe is rambling some random shit (and obviously w...

at the end of the day it's a matter of interaction. there's not much point to a concernt if the audience is not made to feel welcome by the band and the other way round. i remember at least one gig (befittingly enough in stuttgart, germany. befittingly because anyone who's ever been to that city wil...
