“Ask the crowd, if you can shut them up first. New Orleans wants to hear SP they can go buy the hits cd.”

I think I remember him saying for SAOSB that he played in every city that the sponsors were willing to let him. Surprising though that they got Omaha and Sioux Falls and not New Orleans or DC.

For what it's worth, band message boards seem to be a thing of the past across the web.

Even on highly trafficked pages on Reddit, the conversations are always very basic and surface level. I remember in the early 00's every notable band had big message boards with all sorts of thoughtful, interesting dialogue. That fan interest and participation just doesn't exist any more.

True, even the At Ease boards are slow these days, and hardcore Radiohead fans actually still enjoy the band's current output.

The weirdest thing is, not only do I agree with him about the forums' state now, but about their previous excellence.

"basic and surface level" pretty much describes reddit in every way possible.. it's very shallow, circle-jerky, and closed-minded regurgitated barf.

It definitely is in regards to band pages. Every page is the same. "Check out my new shirt!", "Look what CD I happened to pick up", " My pic from last nights concert, I was so happy they played 1979" ETC. It's the same with every band.

The TV show sub-Reddits are usually good and there's some good political groups, but there's certainly a lot of shills and trolls roaming about.

one of the main problems with reddit is that every sub is just one big board of "blarf" over whatever the topic is, and none of the sub-sections that actually made "old school" boarding worth-while. imagine if netphoria was only the pumpkins forum (or rather, ask fuzzy about netphoria only being the pumpkins forum!)
