Well nobody has to shell out money for disappointing side bands y’know. I don’t care for Zavalaz but I can hear some of their stuff online first and then decide if I want to spend my money on it or not. These days you know what you’re in for before it happens.

As for Volta, I can definitely see them only playing new material. They did it in 2011. Only a few old songs were added in 2012, and you can tell they were on auto-pilot during those performances, as if they threw them onto the end of the set list just to see if Deantoni could fuck with the arrangement a bit. I hope it’s all new. That way ppl can stop bitching about Cedric not being able to hit notes like he used to. Then you’ll get ppl complaining that it’s all new setlist, so whatcha gonna do? Everyone complains about something.

remember that video from 2012 (possibly after the final show) of that girl complaining about how they didn't play any deloused songs on the noctourniquet tour? And how the video divided the forum? That was a peak volta fan moment. cant wait for that to start again

I feel like, it's their fucking band, they play what they want. And if they played the old shit then people would just complain about how they were doing it wrong somehow. There's no perfect way to do it for everyone.

Wish I never got into the mars volta. Like a bad drug addiction, yearn for the early magical days.

The phrase "fantasy football" has unlocked why I've often looked at this thread in utter bafflement. There are so many different varieties of music nerd. I usually become the "[person] was in a band with [person], and then they formed [band] with [person]. . ." and eventually I form an intricate web of musicians and discover every band I've ever liked is no more than three steps removed regardless of genre. Some people do fantasy band. Some people get loads of vinyl and pay close attention to pressings and errors. When I was 13, I was the "this band could beat up this band!!" nerd, because I was 13 and played a lot of video games, and apparently wanted that Def Jam game but with punks (and punk-adjacents) instead of rappers. 

All that is to say, I don't get that angle of being a giant music nerd, but shine on, nerds.

I was at all of those as well (only first night of the riv 2 nighter in 05, had to give away tickets for another commitment still regret that), seeing them then was life changing. And every one of those had something unique. I saw them in 02' opening for the peppers in wisconsin, so I was able to see them perform with Jeremy (SUCH a difference), the 03' metro show was one where they did deloused beginning to end, the riv show a few months later they had started doing the super extended Roulette, Drunkship, Cicatriz & Veil Jams, and I'm fairly certain that was also the first leg they did with Adrian & Marcel. I got to meet Cedric & Jon @ the UIC pavillion opening for APC, seeing them perform the Frances material in 05' was like the heroin of seeing them live. @ the aragon ballroom in 06' was the first time they ever played rapidfire/goliath (they introduced it saying something like; "We wrote this last time we were here, thought it would make sense to play it for you first)... I'll shut up now
