So Baton Rouge is tremendously LAME when it comes to quality entertainment I found out as Rae and I were joined by merely 2 great friends of ours tonight as we caught the Crowder concert in movie form at the Rave here in town. I’ll just say that hopefully, you were saving your money to rush out and purchase the new live CD/DVD that’s being released tomorrow morning!
IT IS WELL WORTH IT! It really was incredible tonight to experience all the Crowder yumminess while comfortably sitting in my seat, enjoying the surround sound, not having to cut my way threw the dense crowd for my potty break, not having to arrive early and jockey for a great position to then stand for the next 3 hours! What we find here in the DVD is what Passion’s become known for: incredibly well produced live footage! Almost to a fault I say, but incredibly well done. There are times where it teeters on what appears might be a live music video set to a studio recording with live crowd noises added in, the quality seems that great! I appreciate flubs and hiccups from time to time, especially in the live arena but that’s not such the case with most Passion recordings and neither is it here!
The surprising thing is how much banter is cut from the DVD. I remember there being much more playful banter on stage and with the crowd live and here it is reduced to some typicaly yet memorable moments from the concert. They’ve spliced together 2 live venues: New York and I dare you to guess….yes….that’s right….Atlanta 🙂
I actually called it at the beginning. I told Rae:
I bet you this is Atlanta!
Then Crowder busts out a, “How great is it to be in New York!” and she just snickered at me! Fortunately, we caught on that they have on 2 different outfits so I still had hope! Sure enough, later on Crowder busts out something like, “It’s so good to be back down here in the South!” and BINGO! I had my BOOYAH moment 🙂
Regardless, the live CD/DVD plays like a “best of” compilation of Crowder hits. The DVD is supposed to be chock full of goodies so if you haven’t pre-ordered it then I suggest you run out today and nab yourself a copy!
Let us bring the remedy!
