    Wow, talk about a shit show last night. I ended up walking out of the concert after 5 songs due to how shitty they sounded. Both looked bored and just going through the motions. Sebastian's voice kept cracking and had very little energy while Jesse also looked like he didn't want to be there and played off-key. I have been looking forward to finally seeing these guys live and after seeing all the various footage of them I thought I was going to have a hell of a time. Unfortunately this was not case...Has anyone else seen them on this current tour?

    they had a weird energy at riot fest. played well but spent so much time just bullshitting in between songs. but nothing like what you described.

    Saw them in NY last month and last year. Had a great time at both.

    I just listened to their new album yesterday and it was awesome! I think it was better than the last one and it's the only album this year that didn't disappoint me. Better than the new releases by NIN, Primus, Android Lust, and Marilyn Manson. It's nice to look forward to listening to it again, rather than trying to find something to like on a poor album.

    I sorta re-discovered The Physical World recently after not listening to it in a long time... and damn! What a great album! Solid from start to finish. My favorite album of theirs by far!

    saw them last Wednes and while we all had a blast the sound really was subpar that evening. Both played well and very energized but Jesse's bass was way too lout, which is funny as this is what drew me into DFA from the beginning. But it was just a constant drone filling the room and you could barely hear the melodies. Yet it was super nice to meet the band afterwards and hang out for a bit. Oh the jealousy from my friends, but though luck if you leave seconds after the show ended. As my magazine presented the show and did all kinds of promotion they were very thankful, sharing beers and some insane stories from the stage.

    Not as good as their show in 2014 by far, but that band reclaimed a special place in my heart either way since they are back.
