I knew this would come up, but for myself, I'm not so sure they aren't connected. The next response is that happiness depends on circumstances and joy does not. Well, I don't see true happiness as dependent on circumstances. I'm not so sure that one can be joyful and not display or feel happiness. Nor, do I think one can be truly happy and not have some sense of joy. I know I lumped the two together purposely. You see, I think they really are more entwined.

Just clarification as to where I'm coming from.

That's too bad. The Lost Dogs have brought joy to my soul for over 10 years now!

I can't say that I have found an oasis on which I can settle. I just think we must all work at overcoming our nature. If you are nomadic and find yourself traveling the desert often, work on staying a little longer when you find an oasis. I suggest the book, Happiness is a Serious Problem by Dennis Prager. Very practical guide on working on our nature. Check out:

I understand completely. there are lots of fans from each band that don't like all the other bands related to this group or like several of the bands but not so much the dogs or whatever. they are all completly different and you can't expect the same thing from any of them. Smile


I saw you signed up on the 7s board too! Cool

Our joy or happiness shouldnt be dependant upon 'the good times' or the oasises. "Get me ready for the feast or the famine, for the good times and the bad." It should be dependant upon the Lord which never fails, that way we can have joy or happiness in the good times and the bad. When Paul was in prison waiting to see if he was going to be executed at a time when crucifixion was common, he sang praises to God, shared the love of Christ with those in prison and encouraged other believers through letters. If we put our hope in the Lord the ups and downs of life don't affect us.

Paul could have focused on the 'desert' he was in and bitched and complained, and described how much it sucked, even to the extent of feeling the need to explain to other Christians how much he thought it sucked. But that is defeat for the believer, and discouragement to others.

There is a difference between someone that goes to a Lost Dogs show and doesn't like it and moves on, and someone who feels the need to express in public to the artists, their families, friends and fans how the show was terrible in every way. I believe the "ax to grind" statement is directed at that, as if you have a vendetta to settle against the band. Feeling the 'need' to express to others what you dislike about them.

Maybe another way to say the whole thing is if you try to see things through the eyes of Christ, would you want to tear down other believers who are traveling around and expressing their faith in Christ and their struggles or encourage? Do you want to encourage people to seek out the show for the message or discourage?

None of this is to say you HAVE to like the band or their music or enjoy the show. You don't have to, but what are the fruits of your spirit in coming here to say the show "sucked" and you hated it all? What spirit is that exactly?

again. they play where people will book them. book them somewhere you think they should play, and they will be there. the last few tours, they have been begging for more dates at the last minute.

i don't think they are exaclty turning down the viper club to play a church coffee house.

I think dp needs to lighten up. I've been critical of these guys when I didn't like a particular song or something else. But, did you really think that you wouldn't get some disagreement when you negatively critiqued a show on their message board?

Very rarely is every single thing about any event bad. Very rarely it is. But I can't listen to something like "Broken Like Brooklyn" and think that it's the normal CCM tripe, both musically and lyrically.

It reminds me of a review of "A Momentary Lapse of Reason". When it came out, everyone said it was Pink Floyd lite. But one reviewer commented on this lyric: "Tongue tied and twisted, just an earthbound misfit, I". He said that while you may not think this new Floyd is nearly as good as the old, top 40 lyrics very rarely get more poetic than that.

BTW, as far as all that stuff that you listed, I would be willing to do all that. Most people on this board would.

And I disagree with the concept of Audiori's post. We are to be constructively critical in the church. It doesn't mean that we're not joyous just because we don't think something was done well. "Iron sharpens Iron." As much as I disagree with dp on most of what he's said, I think sometimes this board (and the church) needs just such an enema!

ok, these are just my own opinions from a fan who has been to a lot of dogs shows but not yet promoted one.

I think they are pretty reasonable ($$) to book... they may need three or four rooms and sometimes there are posters you can download and add your info to. You may break even in the end... or not. I have not booked a show, but have looked into it.

Can anyone share numbers and insights from past shows they have hosted?

shows vary from 30 to 200 people depending on the venue and location. I've seen Mike and Terry play in LA with 150 people and the next night in MN to 30.

Will the band play something other than the ususal set list if requested to?

yes and no... i think they try to stick with stuff they have practiced for the tour, and i have seen them play requests from promoters.

How far will most fans on this forum drive to see an LD show?

don't know about anyone else... I don't think I am the normal fan. I've driven over to cali from phoenix on three seperate occasions and flown out to MN once. i will admit that i go to shows to see other fans as much if not more than just going to see the dogs.


Who would you like to see with the LD?

I think a lot of people like to see Randy Stonehill with them. at least he always gets good reviews when he opens for them. I'm sure there are others...

Does everyone prefer outdoor shows under the stars (on a private ranch) or indoors at my local square dance hall?

yes Tongue


If they were playing next to Yosemite National Park would you come?

maybe, if i had the extra cash at the time. (it always comes down to money and time and who else is going)

If there was an additional Dinner-with-The-Band social event would you pay to be there? How much? How much would you be willing to pay for a ticket, just to the show, or both events?

it's hard to say... it really depends on what you mean by social event. i usually spend so much just getting to a show i wouldn't like to have to spend another $50-75 just to get in. I could see $30 if there was food and soda. Adult beverages not included in the price. Tongue

Would you have an issue with adult drinks being offered? Would you be willing to bring something to donate and participate in a benefit auction to directly support the artists?

Drinks are ok with me and i don't even drink. I donated something the just the other night to the dogs.

Admin - please move this to another thread if you feel it should be.

Thanks

And you think that posting on a message board is going to change things? Especially when every other post has given positive reviews?

While your intent may have been to create change for the better, it just came off as bitter and angry. How others perceive us is pretty powerful and can keep our message from ever being heard. But then again, that's probably the other person's fault.

A. You don't have any idea how much work they put into what they do as the Lost Dogs. I think it's quite arrogant to assume they could do more.

B. Have you ever tried booking and promoting a concert? It's not as easy as it sounds.

If you disagree, that is fine. This is just one person's opinion.



And it's fine that you expressed your views. But, it may have worked better had you been a member of the board a while and established your credibility first.

On Joy v.s Happiness - Please, David had joy, but he was not exactly Mr. Positive. Up and down one chapter to the next. Revenge, praise, desperation, happiness, depression, over and over, sometimes in one chapter alone. He was real - that is what God loved about him.


Stop it already with the, "Since I can find a Biblical character who acted a certain way, I can act that way too" attitude.

quote:

I repent of my sin: I will be happy and positive, speak positively about the Roseville show and my experience, never complain, never say anything negative, . . .



Maybe if you started to look for the positive first you might recognize how much there is to enjoy and stop being so grumpy. No one likes to be around a grump all the time. Don't you want people to even hear your points?

I would love to see the band and be close to Yosemite (one of my favorite places on earth) at the same time. I would also be interested in some of the other ideas you mention, but it doesn't seem to reach those outside the normal fan base. If you want to do that, I think a place known for great live music would be best. Then, you have to promote the hell out of it to get people interested who aren't familiar with the band.

Frankly, I would expect a couple of pints to enjoy during the show.

As mentioned previously, contact Jesse their booking agent for details. I booked Bill Mallonee to play my backyard a few years back and had a great time. It was tough getting people to understand that Bill wasn't a family member pretending to be a singer/songwriter. I had to invest some cash along with a couple of other fans, and add that to any tickets sales. Bill deserved much more. It also wasn't a full band.

I still have people telling me how great the show was. I can't believe I actually did it! I would also consider getting involved in something like that again.
