Dante Higgins Warehouse Live March 6, 2012
In the grand scheme of things, any time an artist is holding an album-release concert you know the crowd will be eating out of the palm of his hand while dismissing the offers from everyone else. You know this, I know this. There's no way around it.
For a better analogy, say you're taking a date to Olive Garden and she orders pasta or linguini. She expects it to be everything and then some, but she winds up getting some watery sauce and spaghetti. She eats it, it is definitely filling, but on the inside she's yearning for something more. You have to play up the experience or risk looking like a sucker while the next guy she dates takes her to Red Lobster for the cheddar biscuits.
To cut it short, Dante Higgins was passing out cheddar biscuits last night while his fans understood and played their part. It's not a slight on the crowd or the performers but the cheers were the loudest when Higgins stepped onstage to premiere The Dante Higgins Story.
