How gullible can you be?

The tumblr post isn't proof that this occurred. It's obviously where the idea for the joke came from.

Even ignoring all the other great legal points made in this thread,...

"Assuming the worse"

It's perceptions like this that makes me surprised no one called 911 on Brand New last night.

That's a bad example, too, because it was during one of the shows where they were doing Deja in full. But, Sic Transit, Tommy Gun, Quiet Things and Play Crack the Sky are mainstays on most of their...

I heard one theory that the reason they mixed it up and did TDAG and Daisy last night was because they plan on doing YFW and Deja in Brooklyn, giving NY all four albums.

I think it's more likely...

Agreed. I'm certainly disappointed about seeing YFW and Deja. Still pysched for the show, but TDAG and Daisy are my two favorite albums.

People are taking issue with the behavior of the fans,...

The upset fans have no grounds for complaint as is. Brand New sold them tickets to see two Brand New albums live and they did just that. The fans made an incorrect assumption. End of story.

Obviously, you're free to do whatever you want, but leaving mid-show is disrespectful. I'll never tell you what and what not to do, but in terms of etiquette, if you don't want to be a dick to a band...

Chronological order seems more intuitive for a discography show. I don't really get the point of switching up the order when both venues are missing out on two albums, either way. My guess is they...

Wow. In their hometown, no less. A lot of fans have acted really shameful through this whole tour ordeal. From the way they handled the sellouts, blaming the band for scalpers and now leaving/talking...

Those types of fans are the reason I dread getting the Deja date. Was looking forward to hearing Jesse sing Devil and God, not a bunch of drunk girls screaming the Tommy Gun lyrics at the top of...

Not to mention, at that rate, you could get an original pressing off ebay.

How would someone even get conned into buying a will-call ticket? Do they expect the seller to give them their ID? Seems way too risky even if the person has real proof of purchase.

In the end,...

It's the venue's decision how to sell the tickets, not the band's. Observatory tickets weren't will-call only because Brand New told them to sell them that way, they were will-call only because...

This would probably be better, because the closer the original price is to matching demand, the more scalpers get priced out and actual fans end up with tickets.

Of course, in the end, none of...

"Apparently there's a mention of Brand New toward the end, but I'm still listening to find it."

Translation: There's no real news related to the band, but let me just drop Brand New's name to get...

Probably a little late, but I just found a letter in my Philly mailbox that I haven't checked in a week. It was marked 2 of 10 and had coordinates for the Piazza at Schmidts. I'm assuming this is for...

Shane Henderson is one of the few sure things in music right now. I was a little conflicted about this project, because I saw its potential success as a roadblock to a Valencia reunion, but after...

It's supposed to be the sound of a typewriter typing. Hadn't considered it could be morse code. I still think there's something in the picture that we're supposed to find, though.
