    Random question ... but despite rumors of ticket sales floundering, do we think there's a chance this may extend into the fall at all? I'm really interested in seeing this, for all the nostalgic reasons, but I won't be able to take the time off work to travel this year as much due to visiting Philadelphia and Jersey with my girlfriend's family.

    Would love to see them in St. Louis as opposed to traveling for the Kansas City date, but guess we'll have to see.

    Billy talked like this would lock them into world tours and make them giants again so the goal was to probably use it as a springboard for more dates but uh ... I don’t see that happening. When you start out with arenas the only place to go up is stadiums and they can’t even fill arenas.

    I'd be thrilled with a St. Louis date!....I guess we just have to wait and see.

    Yeah same here, I actually haven't had the chance to see them yet and I know they played Chaifetz Arena in 2012 so I wouldn't be surprised if there are fall dates announced and St. Louis is one of them that they get announced for there. However, if they scale it back a bit for the fall ... I bet they'll be at Peabody Opera House.

    It’s a REALLY shitty location. It’s in the Ravinia business district but lot of venues have struggled in that district, and several restaurants and venues have gone under. It’s totally residential and has to appeal to neighbors unless you have something that brings you in specifically, which he doesn’t. His store front is nearly invisible. He might be better off in downtown HP. My insurance agent is across the street and they joke that the place is always so dead, it looks like a drug money laundering operation.

    His gf says he might be there at the final day party, who knows:

    God that picture in the article...

    I guess the business wasn't as robust as he has said.

    Yeah if it was robust he’d pay a higher lease payment.

    His original "vision" was about different people coming in all the time, which I don't understand, considering the fact that most people don’t even know of the EXISTENCE of the Ravinia business district, so how the fuck does he think that his tea shop is going to attract some steady stream of an urban crowd that varies all the time? The guy is a business moron.

    Ravinia Wine Shop mentioned in the above article? It died.

    Why can't they just write two more songs and make it an album? Still, I'm looking forward to hearing them either way.

    Hopefully they're dramatically different. Otherwise there's no point. Plus I feel like we've gone down this path before. Two albums in one year turned into just one. Billy's word doesn't count for much. Whatever we get, please be good. That's all I ask. There's four great musicians there. No excuse for it to be bad... other than Billy being Billy.

    -Because they were probably just banged out with no heed to album flow, no plans to make a comeback album per se, they just wanted to write a bunch of stuff and throw it out there to see if they could work with each other again and what the reaction would be
    -Because you've got to make the maximum profit possible so sell two things and not one

    Could be any number of reasons.

    Pretty sure it's been mentioned. Hopefully they're good and makes sense to divide them.

    Had a dream I was auditioning to be the drummer for SP despite the fact I haven't played drums in a very long time. As the date approached, I became nervous and decided not to go ahead with it, and instead just bought a ticket for the tour. I then run into Chamberlin and sheepishly ask him how he joined the band, since he knows I was going to try and take his spot. This is the second dream I've had about this tour and I'm not even going to see it. Any dream analysts out there?

    You are anxious/afraid to go after your desires and feel regret about being a participant as opposed to a performer.

    I've been thinking of finally buying the deluxe edition vinyl of MCIS. I have heard there were issues with the sound on some (all?) copies, though. Is there anything I should know to avoid this?

    Get an EU pressing. Only the initial USA pressings were afflicted with issues that made some of the tracks nigh-unlistenable. The later ones were apparently good but I guess it'd be a crapshoot if you make a purchase. All the EU ones were fine.

    yeah i finally listened to mine recently, but it's one of the early US pressings so a lot of it sounded like shit. pretty disappointing

    Bought mine off Amazon a month or two ago and it sounded great
