moe. Tarantinoe. Halloweenoe.- (JBP)
After writing several reviews for this Halloween show and then rewriting them again, I have decided that my vacation for the year is going to be Halloween and I will not write a full review for this set of shows. It's not that there's not a lot to talk about, it's just that everybody needs a holiday, even the Jam Band Purist. There are some things I would like to say though specifically about the venue and the show itself.
The Fillmore in Philadelphia is some of the highest security that I have gone through to see any band.
That being said I completely understand why, I just wish my crotch hadn't been touch several times. At one point, they even separated the security lines from male to female, what about those trans gendered folk? So, I kept telling the men dressed as women to go in that line as well to confuse security.
The show itself was great, moe. took time to try and change their songs to match the theme. It didn't work out as well as Star Wars theme last year because the Tarantino theme itself is so broad, it's hard to capture moments from several movies, nonetheless just one.
It's also really hard to understand the lyric changes live because you're expecting the song that you are used to and all the commotion and muffled sounds of the concert itself makes it hard to decipher the change in lyrics. I had an amazing time with all my friends and even met some really cool people. I was dressed in my "Pojama People" outfit, PJ's and a robe and moe. even teased Frank Zappa's "Inca Roads" and that made my night. Needless to say, I had a great Halloween.
