VIOLENT FEMMES AND BHTM JUNE 11, 2022

Hated the pairing of the Violent Femmes with BHTM. Then, the sound director for BHTM was way off all night. Thus, the 5 new songs did nothing for our group of 4. Too loud at 96-98 decibels to hear any lyrics, which caused many in stands to leave. We moved up to the top and it was still screeching loud. Worst BHTM show ever in the last 20 years of their Red Rocks history!!!

BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS

I’ll have to agree with James Jackson. This was by far the “worst” performance sound wise and Todd’s vocals were subpar along with subpar guitar licks and solos that were lacking. I am a die hard BHTM fan and this was by first time to see them live. Wow. what a BIG disappointment. It wasn’t just the mix and pedal board problem, the vocals were off and flat at times. Plus I’ve never heard Todd’s voice sound like he did last night. It was sick and not in a good way. Poor guitar solo phrasing. Timing and missed licks were piss poor. Every guitar player has a bad night and it was evident with changing guitars every freakin song struggling to find something that would work. It was not happening! I wanted to leave after the first couple of songs. I feel really bad for Todd, how embarrassing. Still love guys, but being honest last night “sucked” and certainly not worth what I paid for sit down tickets. What a bummer. Love the HOB venue, food and service staff were great. Also, stick with the Benedict running through the Carr V6. Red Rock 2008!
