WHY IS THIS WEIRD AND WHY DO YOU THINK I DON’T KNOW IT? WHO DOESN’T KNOW THIS?
Y’know they chose that time on purpose, right?
I just—… I can’t.

We are all angry at the moon. The moon is a lie. We must all howl. We must all shout to the moon. We must all point toward and scream in fear at the moon.
Did you stop singing to write this message? Oh dear, to the family and colleagues of fried-demon-potato I regret to inform you that your loved one is no longer with us. They may be dead but we will never know. The ants have them now.
They will ignite when the planets align and the emergency makes its self present in the chaos of the universe unfolding onto us and folding in on itself as we weave in and out of entropy and enlightenment as the universe is explained as it is being destroyed. The crayons will ignite then.
Hi, thanks for writing respectfully!
I’m going to try my best to answer every question, although I’m sure I don’t speak for the whole gaslight fanbase. The main reason that I was disappointed with the package is because I believe Gaslight misinterpreted what their whole fanbase is about. Gaslight has always been an accessible band, they have -nearly- always met their fans after gigs, and every time I have met them they were polite and caring — this is what makes them so amazing, their accessibility and how humble they are.
Now, when these packages come out, I guess it hurt the fanbase a little bit because it was implied that we were losing this accessibility. Did we jump to conclusions? Absolutely. Was it careless and selfish? Not necessarily. I know that you’re coming from the point of view “well if you don’t have the money to spend on them then why take the experience away from those that do???” — but by having these packages they were setting up an illusion of this hierarchy where the people that have more money to spend on them are “”better fans”” and are going to have a “”better experience”“. Following the punk ethos that predominates the fanbase, these packages go completely against what we thought the band believes in. That’s basically it. I (or maybe the fanbase/people that felt angry too) felt misjudged. Furthermore, the idea of having early entrance takes away the credit from people that spend hours queuing, people at the photo pit are making photographer’s jobs harder, etc.
I know the package idea also offended a lot of 45RPM fans, because it was more about pleasing the casual fan and not giving back to the committed members of the 45RPM club (even though they do get a discount). I can’t really elaborate more on this subject because I’m not part of 45RPM (s/o to the poor student life), so if anybody that is part of the group wants to further elaborate on this, be my guest!
I truly understand your point of view, where you’re willing to pay for the experience. But what if they didn’t come out to greet the fans afterwards because of the special package?? The package would be taking away the only thing that us “”poorer fans”” have. I’m sorry if at the end of the day you feel like you aren’t going to have the experience you wanted to — but on the brightside, maybe now they’ll play the rarer songs live to all of their fans, and you’ll enjoy it with 5,000+ gaslight fans singing their heart out - instead of a small sound check session.
I have a hard time stringing my thoughts, but I hope this made sense. Good luck meeting them, and have a good concert.
