I will start by saying that Blitzen Trapper is best band out there concerning their music library and songwriting. I will never miss a show when they come through. With all of the touring, has the band ever discussed more of an open setlist. The band is always on tour, so if they diversified their setlist concerning song selection they could get more people to come or the same people to come to multiple shows. I limit myself to one show a tour because when I went to multiple shows, they had the same setlist. I will never miss a BT show, but I would go to more if I had the 'possibility' to hear other songs. OR if BT opened their songs up a bit. I don't want to say 'jam', but just some extended solos or intrumental jams like the end of 'Echo' or 'Sci-Fi Kid' that would in turn create a unique feeling for each show. Just a thought.
This post comes as a result of my effort to introduce hundreds of line dwellers to Blitzen Trapper at a recent Phish show. I wore my BT shirt proud and tried to tell everyone I could about this band. Phish is a great live band, maybe the best right now, but they have nothing on the Trapper. BT's music is second to none. Long live the Trapper. I will see you next week!!!
