Review by Josh006

Josh006 So I was trying to just let it go, but it's really getting under my skin and I am just feeling compelled to follow up on my previous review. I PERSONALLY don't like looking at reviews immediately following a show I attended only to see people not in attendance critique a show so incredibly negatively. It just puts a bad taste in my mouth (so to speak) that the rest of my "extended phamily" did not extract the type of enjoyment I did.

I reviewed night 2 of Chicago off an official webcast because it just straight melted my face and I honestly feel like the music was better than any show I've ever attended. When I commented "best show since Cypress" (Cypress being what was meant to be my first show, but was in a very bad car accident a few days before and was not able to attend and later had an opportunity to discuss the show with Trey Anastasio himself- leading me to idealize that performance), I meant just that and I still stand by that statement.

If you all choose to disagree with me, or if you disagree with my distaste for a "couch tour review" that's fine- you all are entitled to your own opinion just as I feel that I feel that I am entitled to mine. For 6 of you to vote my comment down like my opinion is inappropriate or unwelcome, however, really just gets under my skin. I defend the netter community at every waking moment (Paul Glace, the founder of PT, is the brother-in-law of one of my closest tour friends, so the debates are both frequent and heated). That being said, those negative responses to my sharing of my honest (and very positive) opinion really make me embarrassed to be part of this community. I'm sorry if people take offense to this, but I am genuinely bothered by said negativity and felt people should know.
