This was my first time seeing Adam Ant and I really enjoyed his performance. I tried to see him in 2012, but just couldn't manage it, so I'm thankful he
made a return trip through California in 2013. This show was originally scheduled at the Fremont Theatre but was moved to SLO Brew about 2 weeks before
the show was to take place. Word was it was so people could have a GA floor to dance on, but it instead felt like it was due to a lack of ticket sales.
Despite the move to a venue half the size of the Fremont, this show still didn't sell out (for shame, San Luis).
The crowd was surprisingly civil and it appeared that most were from out of town and road tripping along with the tour's west coast run. Typically, the
noisiest people around me were local college students. The screamy, talkative Cal Poly girls that were there for the openers, Prima Donna, are heard
from the beginning of the show through "Stand And Deliver." They mostly just scream, but there is some clapping along (especially in "Hardmentoughblokes")
and talking (mostly in "Ants Invasion"). They left after "Stand And Deliver" and you can hear them make their goodbyes. After that, most of the audience
noise is not as intrusive and typical of people simply enjoying themselves. Actually, the loudest noise emanates from the person in front of me who stomped
on the wooden floor during "Wonderful," "Strip," "Goody Two Shoes" and "Cartrouble."
There is phasing in "Shrink" from when the guards went after someone for taking photos. There's tiny interference in "Room At The Top," "Strip" and
"Cleopatra" from someone's phone, but hopefully it's not too noticeable. And there's also a brief, strange noise in "Vive Le Rock," but it might just be
clapping or someone dropping a phone.
I amplified this, but did nothing else to the recording. And if burning to cd, the suggested split is between "Strip" and "DBNS."
There was a no photo policy at this show, so the only pics I have included are of the show poster and the usual ad and ticket scans.
This is for my brother. His 12-inch of "Stand And Deliver/Beat My Guest" was my introduction to Adam & The Ants all those years ago and I still have that
single ever since it kind of 'walked' its way from his collection into mine.
Please support the artist by buying his official releases and merch.
