Okay, they played “Who Knew” in Maine SO WELL but ( again, I’m used to NYC/Jersey crowds where people are INSANE) the crowd didn’t get as into it. But when “Miss Murder” came on, the crowd went berserk. I think they need a guaranteed track or two that they know will consistently get them that reaction.
Anyway, like I said, any set is a good set. Do I love “Miss Murder?” Yep. Decemberunderground is one of my favorite albums by them. I was 16 when it came out, was not in a great place emotionally/mentally, so that album was a great solace to me. Hearing “Miss Murder” now is almost like a “yeah, you made it,” moment. It was a great gateway album for fans. For new fans, it wasn’t as extreme as something like Black Sails or even STS. For old fans, it promised a continued progression.
I’m just happy to see them live. I talk to a lot of fans who can’t see them for various reasons, and it breaks my heart that they can’t get that opportunity, especially because there’s something so cathartic about their shows.
