I am being crushed. Yes, I am being crushed at a Curtain Society show. This experience is a new one. I am having flashbacks to the Nine Inch Nails concert where I left in an ambulance. I strain to see Roger Lavallee, vocalist and guitarist for the group, as his muddled vocals reach my ears. The sound is definitely not up to par on "Kissherface," found on their album, Inertia. As I listen, bassist Ron Mominee's backing vocals trample over Lavallee's. I am bothered. I like this band and the poor sound quality is not going to win over the Legendary Pink Dots fans who crowd the room. Fortunately, the sound problems are remedied and I enjoy the rest of The Curtain Society's set, as usual. As smile spreads across my face. "Ferris Wheel," also from their album, is great and I can see Duncan Arsenault's cap along with a couple cymbals during my favorite part of "Love Ends".
