May 12 at the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA
The ABB was fantastic! A great set list and performance. It was great to see all in the ABB in such great form.
However, the sound mix was terrible. I sat in the balcony at the Fox Theater and the sound was distorted lacking any separation among the vocals, and among the guitars and percussion. For a small venue, the sound was awful. Either the ABB needs to fire their sound mixer, or the mixer needs to understand the limits and nature of the acoustics at their venues. I love the ABB. it's a shame to see a great performance negatively impacted by a poor sound mix; something that should ever happen with a great act like the ABB.
