    You liked the solo show more than the full band?

    There was a bit too much moshing at the show I attended. Maybe, I'm just getting old but I would have much rather have stood there in revelry than having some knob bouncing into me and my fiancee during "Holland 1945." Perhaps I'm becoming a bit too old at heart. It was amazing nonetheless. "Ferris Wheel on Fire" is such a great, great, song. And while I'm pretty sure he played "Ruby Bulbs" during his solo shows, it was pretty surreal to see Neutral Milk Hotel play it. Another highlight was Laura's zanzithophone during the Elf Power set.
    Who knew that there would actually be a hell, and that it would be in New Jersey?

    I'm always disappointed that there's not more moshing at these shows. You watch videos of them from the '90s and people just go wild. Now everybody just stands there like a boring statue of a drowsy zombie.

    yes bc it was my first time seeing Jeff live so it had the air of mystery and it was in a tiny venue, he covered a Vic Chesnutt song that I love, and me and my gf waited 2 hours afterwards to talk to him so it was just a more meaningful experience

    Okay, but absolutely nobody takes it to that level at any of these shows, so the people "moshing" next to you were probably just dancing and jumping a bit. Did you get any bruises from this person "bouncing into you"? Then it wasn't moshing.

    I just don't get why people don't like to move when they hear music anymore.

    At the Baltimore show in the fall, there was something approaching real moshing - a substantial group of people pushing each other around rather than just dancing around a bit. The Ithaca show had more of the dancing and not the moshing, and that worked better for me.

    I have the same disappointment with nearly any show I go to. I understand that some people just don't move much but when you're the only one moving you feel a little lonely.

    it's a shame "moshing" is really all you get anymore at most shows.
