Re: FW: The Sloan in-store tour



hmm.  seems to me that both shawn and cori missed something in
elizabeth's post that she assumed rather than spelled out.

one can't complain about instores for price -- free -- but
that aside, compared to bar shows or other venues they *suck*.
bands just do not do full-on rock shows at instores in my
experience.  well, except for orange glass.  :-) and the
set is shorter, and the sound isn't as good.  so when elizabeth
says it smells a little corporate, i agree -- an instore without
an accompanying full-on live show is like a trailer without the
movie.  all it does is give people the basic gist and make some
publicity waves.  you still have to pay for the real goods.
