Jan 26, 2014 - dsteiny on Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers
Disappointment

We saw Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers at Terrapin Crossroads last night with a large group and we ended leaving before the show was over.

This is amazing, because everyone was very excited about the show - we were pumped! But, unfortunately the band was not. It's been a long time since I've seen a show where I felt like the performers couldn't wait for it to be over.

We paid quite a lot for these tickets, we all love the videos Nickie does in the car (great stuff) as well as many of the bands songs. But, guys you are professionals and the performance you put on last night was not up to par. Treat your audience with the same respect that we give to you :)

I'm not going to even to into the crazy amount of security at the show, but that's not the bands fault. I felt like I was watching a concert at the friggin police station!
