Bands are making it known that they aren’t into looking out at a sea of phones, which is understandable. But considering I’ve seen both Savages and Yeah Yeah Yeahs live shows…. how about you guys hop off your high horses and concentrate on putting on a performances which don’t make me reach for the device with access to unlimited information I have in my pocket. If you guys rock, I won’t need to amuse myself by fat-apping you clowns.
“A NOTE FROM SAVAGES
OUR GOAL IS TO DISCOVER BETTER WAYS OF LIVING AND EXPERIENCING MUSIC
WE BELIEVE THAT THE USE OF PHONES TO FILM AND TAKE PICTURES DURING A GIG PREVENTS ALL OF US FROM TOTALLY IMMERSING OURSELVES
LET’S MAKE THIS EVENING SPECIAL
SILENCE YOUR PHONES”
“PLEASE DO NOT WATCH THE SHOW THROUGH A SCREEN ON YOUR SMART DEVICE/CAMERA.
PUT THAT SHIT AWAY as a courtesy to the person behind you and to Nick, Karen and Brian.
MUCH LOVE AND MANY THANKS!
YEAH YEAH YEAHS”
