This tour has been brought to you by Throat Coat Tea

Postby annapt » Fri Oct 06, 2006 8:28 am

Any of you seen Harvey Danger in the past few weeks? I was at the show in Allston last night and let me just say, if that was Sean Nelson With Laryngitis I don't know if I could handle Healthy Sean Nelson. SO INTENSE and SO AWESOME. I am very glad they decided to stick it out and finish up the tour.

Dude, seriously though. Mr. Nelson went to some great lengths for us - no talking at all, all day? I wouldn't be able to do that.


Also interesting to me: the differences between HD and TLW fans at the shows - I thought they would be much more similar crowds. Discuss.

I saw (and taped -- coming soon) Harvey Danger the first show post-Laryngitis. Let me say that he made the same throat-coat tea reference, and also said he hadn't spoken all day then, too. ;) But yeah, he sounded amazing, all things considered. I heard one or two notes he had trouble hitting, but shit. It was still pretty awesome.

I found the HD crowd less energetic and communicative than the LW crowd. Like they took themselves too seriously.

HD fans only seem that way because you've never seen a Long Winters show with me. I sit in the corner with a snifter of brandy, reading Proust and waiting for opportune moments to scream things like, "Whatever with you and the Reformation, already!" and "Scent of Lime!"

I know all the security guards, so it takes a while to get rid of me.

Funny, I found it to be the opposite. Perhaps that was because the LW show I went to was in NY, at the Bowery Ballroom, with at least a few people who were "too cool for the show" as John said. There was certainly more communication between the audience and band - heckling, requests, etc. at the LW show. The HD show was in a relatively small bar in Allston - much more intimate, and people actually DANCED.

Perhaps it's more a function of the venue and the city than the fans themselves? As a Bostonian, of course, I'd like to think that the awesomeness of the Boston crowd had something to do with it.

It's true. No one in Toronto dances at all. To anything.

Pfft. I was participating as much as anyone else in the Nerd thread. I'm just as guilty. It wasn't meant to be rain, so much as a rainbow on the parade.

Harvey Danger and The Long Winters are both indie now, so their crowds are probably equally as indie-fag-filled.

It's true. I think you responded first to my original post in a very nerd-friendly, nerdy, welcoming manner, which was reassuring for me in my board-newbie nervousness.

You officially have 26 posts, which I think is one post past the N00b limit. It's official now: you're a full-fledged Long Winters nerd.

SWEET.

(p.s. I'd really like to hear more about that show you taped and perhaps get a copy, if possible)

Most coffee shops have Throat Coat Tea available as well, but never on the menu. The Coffee Beanery and Starbucks have all been supporting the above theory, at least in the WNY area.

Sean was also drinking from a Tim Horton's cup when he made that remark in Toronto. So maybe Timmy's has it too.
