The PA date is a week before I got to Florida. Maybe I'll be able to make it, depending on how far away it is.

What's funny is that I keep telling Paul that I won't be back to see him again each time I go to the BE because I live too far away and I don't know if I'll make it out there again.

I really should stop doing that, haha.

February 2005 Bitter End Show

December 20 2004, 4:00 PM 

I know that everyone who goes to The Point and/or Bitter End shows will have a great time.  I won't be in the audience that night, because I'm going to see Spamalot that night.

You know, when you're up against Hugh Jackman, there's nothing to be nervous about. I knew I had no chance of winning, which was fine, but what made it even better was that I lost to somebody who really deserved it and was such a class act. I remember being at a Tony function with him, and he came up to me wanting to have his picture with me!

This is important!

December 22 2004, 5:12 PM 

The Bitter End gig is exactly one week after my birthday. Therefore, this will have to be considered my birthday gig. It will be a celebration of Common Ro, Tricia and all things Tricia in a well formulated mixture in which none of the ingredients overpower each other.
WOW, two in a row! Impressive.

If anyone wants to come to Boston for the real birthday (Feb 11), all are welcome!

Love, Peace, & Jerry,
Tricia

Hey Stef- the only thing I don't like about your Bitter End flyer is it's really hard to read the band name on it. Unless you KNOW who the band, in which case you're probably already going to the show, it's a little hard to make out. Otherwise, those look awesome!

And ya I guess that's true about the BE flyer. If you tell people the name when they're given a flyer, they should be able to remember I'm sure. If not, they'll certainly know it after they see the gig.

Quick question for the well informed ... when you buy tickets for the UK you are told there is no mailing of an actual ticket .. which I am aware of.

But is it the same for The Bitter End? are tickets despatched .. or is it a tick-you-off-the-list-at-the-door thing there too?

Thankee!

I'll jump on the hinting bandwagon! They should play Valentine's Day again this year. For all us painfully single fans. Well, I'm speaking for me really. It lands on a Monday this year, so they could do it Sat. or Sun. before. Or, I could just skip school that day and bask in the love that is Common Rotation.

If I knew how to make those little hearts, I would.

Umm, hi, this is my first time posting in this forum. I became a ComRo fan about over a half a year ago, so I'm so excited that there's going to be a concert I can go to.

I really want to go to the concert in Bryn Mawr, but I was wondering a few things. Is the concert at 7 or 10? I seem to remember reading that its now at 10. I'm all confused. Also, the website for The Point doesn't list ComRo at all. Are tickets just bought at the door or internet?

Thanks so much. I cannot wait to see them.

Hi, Becky, welcome to the message board.

Is the concert at 7 or 10? I seem to remember reading that its now at 10. I'm all confused.
Also, the website for The Point doesn't list ComRo at all.


I called The Point and CR not officially confirmed yet so they aren't listed on The Point's website. However, CR is in "the book" co-billed with another act. So I guess Stef knows that CR will be appearing later.

I like coming in early to hear the other acts. The music is always good. The food is, too.

As soon as they are confirmed and you can buy tickets, you can be sure someone will alert the board.

Are tickets just bought at the door or internet?

You can buy them over the internet or at the door. Best to buy your ticket ahead of time to be sure you can get in. The Point's capacity is only about 125 people. I live near The Point so I just go in ahead of time and by my ticket there.

CR is wonderful live. You're going to have a great time.

Well, I certainly wouldn't hate people for liking musicians/bands other than Common Rotation. However, I would question anyone's musical tastes if they actually liked that particular GotR performance at MR2004. Even one of my closest friends, who had traveled from Split Rock to Long Island to watch GotR play twice then drive back that same evening, apologized to me for making me sit through that performance. But this isn't about GotR-bashing. I think MR2004 was the perfect example of how Adam, Eric and Jordan are able to win over people with only one performance. People who had initially attended the concert for another band but went away with much praises of Common Rotation and handfuls of their CDs.

Re: east coast gigs

It was actually at a GOTR gig that I first heard a Common Rotation CD--thanks Lisa. I became an instant fan. Seeing them live in London in June 2003 sealed the deal for me. Had it not been for GOTR, I never would have found out about Adam, Eric, and Common Rotation. So, I have to thank them for that.

I've never seen an episode of BTVS. I've always been a follower of small bands and I still go to many shows for local talent here in Colorado such as The Atoll and Diana Castro and The Big Time which I've followed for years. In fact, I just realized that I've been following bands that I like for 17 years (holy crap!). There is nothing more powerful than music that touches your soul. How many memories do we each have that are tied to a song? Adam and Eric definitely have a way making music that will stick with you and make you feel.

As I said to someone that shall remain nameless here....

"I'll always be travelling to see the band. And now that band is Common Rotation."

So, with that said, I bought my plane ticket yesterday for the east coast gigs next month.

I'm sorry I made such an inflammatory statement. I didn't mean to belittle James (of whom I am a HUGE fan) or GOTR. I have all their CDs - but THAT night I felt they were hugely overshadowed by CoRo.

CoRo came out, played a good tight set, left the audience hungry for more. If I hadn't already been a fan, I would have been after that gig.

No problem to say that here...fact is that GotR was and always will be overshadowed by Common Rotation because CoRo has genuine talent...

To quote a couple of favorite ad lib lyrics in the immortal words of Adam Busch... "I'm surprised you can hear me through that bleach blond hair..." and "Sometime ya can't help it when the band breaks up..." and I thought that those were pretty generous... :p

I don't feel the need to compare the two, because there IS no comparison. I guess the only reason people do it is because both bands have a guy in them that was on Buffy and they've both played some of the same places. But I have never been a GOTR fan. I'm not a James fan either, but that has nothing to do with GOTR....their music and lyrics just did nothing for me. I've actually seen them 3 times at conventions and once outside of the cons, with some friends who were already going. I did happen to be at that 2004 MR performance, though, and have to say that was the worst I've ever seen them. In the past, I never had to leave the room during a show...I did at MR. But Sue, you didn't offend me.

Totally. I like James a lot... but I'm a fan of James the actor, not so much James the musician (or GotR). I've heard his solo gigs were much more entertaining anyhow. And I'm not bashing GotR here, but I think the main thing problem with them was that all their fans were James fans. I mean I'd say 90% atleast only liked the band because James was in it... and unfortunately that would probably never change much. They lacked the ability to make their own fans based soley on their music and performances.

CR on the other hand... you may walk into a concert a Buffy fan, but you leave a Common Rotation fan. It's a beautiful thing.

hear hear...i like James but not GOTR, and it is pretty redundant to compare the two bands. Sue, you certainly didn't offend me, i think most people on this board would agree with you.

It is possible that she goes to cons because some of her very best friends are Buffy fans and they go to them and she likes spending time with them. Along the way I'm sure she's met some of the actors and become familiar with their names and such. Just a theory... :-P

I like/liked GotR but like many here have said, their performance at MR'04 was disappointing. It was my first time seeing them live but I have been to enough shows to know what's good and what isn't.

MR was also my first exposure to CR and I loved them. Not my typical type of music, but then again, I like just about anything...

Too bad they're not playing MR this year. Christian Kane's band Kane is, and Megan and country don't mix well

It's not ComRo, it's CoRo or CR or Common Ro or those fucking folks or any but ComRo.

Personally, I call them "those fucking folks". Or sometimes I mix it up and call them "those folking fucks". And on the odd occasion I am financially unable to attend a gig, I'll say, "fuck those folks! I'm going to stay home and watch a movie!"

Peace Love and ComRo

I never understood CoRo except for the rhyming sound of it. The Co in CoRo is not the same sound of Co in Common. ComRo is the first syllable of the two words and at least sounds right. The ComRo Combo, heh.

But, I just go with the flow. I usually just use CR if not the whole band name since we all know who we're talking about here.

that's sort of bothered me about the use of CoRo too, watcher, yet i use it anyway. i'm way too lazy to throw an "m" in there. and, of course, CR when i'm even lazier. i never actually say either. that would just be weird, i guess.

Sadly to say- I dont think the Eagles have a chance agains the Patriots.....Brady is a more superior quarterback than Mcnabb- that whole division wasnt that good this year- its going to be tough for them next week.

As my brother told me over a month ago, "The Eagles are good enough to get to the Superbowl, they're just not good enough to win the Superbowl." And along having a friend from Mass who's a Pats fan I can see how that's possible but hey, I love my Eagles and I'm still believing they have a chance.

"Brady is a more superior quarterback than Mcnabb"

K? Whoever you are...I don't think that is something you want to start here, because I can debate the superiority of McNabb over Brady until the end of time. The "Pats" may have had the tougher division, but I think they're taking the Eagles for granted and are in for a rude awakening. It's OUR time.

CR at The Point on 2/19

January 25 2005, 4:21 PM 

I see that both Common Rotation and Griffin House are playing on the same show at the Point on Feb 19. Common Rotation is listed to go first- does that mean they're covering for this other band? I was hoping CR would be the only one playing all night...

oh regan- foolish girl.... just kidding. Well of course you will say Mcnabb is better- you're a Philly fan.....Brady was the youngest quarterback to win a Superbowl not to mention he's done it twice so far. Sorry- think the Pats have the upper hand-

I LIKE Tom Brady, believe me. If there's one team I have no grudge against, it's the Patriots. I've always thought McNabb was better, though. He's more versatile.

It's been a while, as my MIA status has only increased. But I must say I'm pumped for the Bitter End show. Should be a blast. My friend Karen from Maine may actually come down for the show (she unfortunately missed the Living Room show in Maine last year) so I've even got her pumped. And of course Jamie's pumped. Too bad we can't bring our cat Jack to the show. Ah well, while the cats home the parents will party.

I think I have my brother convinced to take the train up from D.C. to meet us for the BE gig. I've played him the CD's and he's been interested in catching a show, but I think when I played Savior--Rosa Parks on my I-pod for him, he now really wants to see them live.

Here's hoping that my brother can get the night off work to come join us for the gig.

Damn, open only to the Swarthmore community. That's the second time the band has played at Swarthmore and I wasn't allowed to attend. I live really near Swarthmore, too. Sigh... It would have been really cool to hear TMBG.

What is this nonsense of it only being opened to Swarthmore students and faculty? I could've been able to see TMBG. How cruel.

Is that for sure that CR is opening? Since there hasn't been a mention on the site. Unless there has been a mention and I just overlooked it.

That was a very good point, Julia. I feel quick.

Although there's a chance I will be going to the Point show, I'd like to be able to see TMBG someday. They're another one of my favorite bands. That walk around the building and listen from the outside idea is almost tempting. Or, you know, I'll just bring TMBG CD's on the trip and pretend.

Love ya, Julia <3

Seriously, there's enough dates that weekend that a person can easily get their CoRo fix. If not, then there's no hope for you.

I always get to the BE around 5:30 since that's when my train comes in but since it'll be February and most likely COLD, I'd say get in line around the 6ish hour, unless you feel like being crazy.

The last time they played at the BE it was raining, cold and miserable and there were just a few people in line for a good amount of time. I think more people showed up around that 6ish-6:30ish time.

I'm complaining that I won't get to hear TMBG. I've never heard them live. Of course, I'm also complaining that I won't get to hear CR twice in one day. Greedy, yeah, that's me.

Well chances are even if you could see the Swathmore College show, there would not be enough time to see both CoRo sets and the Giants set as the Giants will probably be playing at the same time CoRo is on at the Point.

Hi again. I just have a question in regards to The Point/Common Rotation. What's the policy regarding cameras and/or video taping. From what I've heard and read, Common Rotation is pretty cool about that, but I'm not sure if The Point has a certain policy.

Thanks.

We are OK with photography as long as you do NOT use a flash please. No videotaping however. We plan on videotaping The Point as well as all of the East Coast shows that weekend as part of our Living Room Tour Documentary so again we urge everyone who brings a camera to please NOT use a flash as it does it does affect the quality of video we are able to get. Thanks.
