Although Rocks Off agrees witha commenter from our review
that people really need to STFU when they go to concerts, especially if the music is intimate and acoustic - if you want to talk at Warehouse Live, folks, Lucky's Pub is right next door - Jenny Lewis' rhythm guitarist Johnathan Rice really stirred up a hornet's nest Wednesday night when he pointed out that Lewis' Austin and Dallas audiences did not feel the a similar need to converse during her set. It's not like Houston has any kind of chip on its shoulder about those two cities or anything. Here's a brief selection of the Tweets that were flying fast and furious during and after the show.
