And while I'm ranting, you know what else I think the artists don't tend to get? That they're only part of the equation. The main part, but still. Not all of it.

There's three relationships at work at any show. The artist's with their audience, the audience's with the artist, and then the audience's with the rest of the audience. To the artist, from the stage, the audience is one single entity. To the folks down there in the pit, it's just a bunch of other people.

When your standing so close to somebody that you're getting their sweat on you and you don't care, you're more than strangers. You know why people love Klaxons? Because they get to shout "OoooOOOOooooOOOOWooh - OH!" choruses with several thousand other people and share glowsticks with each other. An audience is a community. A temporary one that isn't quite like any other but that's what it is if the artist is doing their thing correctly. And maybe your audience of five hundred people all go in five hundred completely different directions afterwards and never interact on any level ever again, but it's unlikely. Clearly, if they're all grooving at the same show, then they've got wavelengths in common. There's a Metric picnic happening this summer, for Christ's sake.

What was my point? Oh yeah. When an Artist complains about bloggers or something, it feels like they don't entirely understand that relationship. They own that stage, yes. They brought the audience together, yes, and yes they have the power to make that audience very happy. But they are not part of the audience. They aren't part of that community, even if they are it's focus. It's their job to make the audience groove with them, but half the battle is making the audience groove with each other first. They should be trying to promote that sense of community any opportunity they get.

I know I've been on a buzz for them lately, but I don't know of any band who understands audiences quite like this one:

It was a great show!

It was my first time at Bush Hall and the atmosphere was surreal! It was completely different from a Metric gig and it was a good surprise!
Emily is an extraordinary woman with an amazing voice. I love her! and I know I'm not the only one :D

Crowd surf off a cliff is my favourite song...

Did anyone take pictures? Post please!

Val, I'll pretty much agree with all of what you posted (and I will get the Fields videos online I promise) :D

Anyway, back to last night - She finishes a song and then says that during her solo gigs she think of inappropriate things but couldn't tell us because of bloggers and how things she says in London would have to work everywhere else in the world. However it seemed to me to be directed at an ex-boyfriend of hers and how in another era he'd be a loser in bar moaning about his ex-girlfriend but now he's a loser in a bar with a laptop blogging to the whole planet.

What this had to do with people in the general audience I don't know? Maybe she should be more careful who she sleeps with??

Anyway she finally said what she'd been thinking - She'd looked at her drink (cider maybe??) and said that the colour of it reminded her of a urine sample she once gave??

I did take some photos but they'll be gash as always but I'll post them later :D
