The Scoop: Iconic mystery rock outfit Brand New performed their first of two East Coast discography shows last night, where they performed both The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me and Daisy in their entirety, as well as a handful of b-sides. You can check out the full set list below.
The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me
“(Fork And Knife)”
Despite witnessing a truly unique experience, a hefty portion of fans in attendance at the show were disappointed (some outraged) at the band performing Daisy instead of either of their first two records (Deja Entendu or Your Favorite Weapon.) You can check out an entire Tumblr account dedicated to the disappointed fans who feel “cheated” here.
The Spin: It’s disheartening to see just how ungrateful “fans” can be. The four discography shows Brand New is currently executing this month (they only have one more date) are some of the only times the band will ever be playing certain songs from their catalogue. While it’s understandable that some may be disappointed due to the price they paid to get to the show, however, maybe they should re-consider going through outrageous lengths to see the band in the first place. Remember, you’re more than your favorite band.
The Question: What do you think of the situation? Do you think it’s wrong that fans are this outraged? Or do you think they have a right to be? Let us know in the comments below!
