i only know one DCFC (do people sorten their name like that? i'm going to) album, which is Plans (is it the most recent one?) and people make fun of me for it, i like it, and The Decemberists demand that i be in a particular mood, but when i'm in that mood, i like them too. so, assuming that no one i knew was around to judge me, and i happened to feel like it, i would be envious of your tickets.

everyone is bitches

I would rather be kicked in the nuts repatedly by a swedish body builder and then injected with HIV than to sit through thirty minutes of that concert.

Although both bands are quite good, there's only so much of that indieboi whine one can take in an evening.

I was at a festival a couple years ago and Death Cab were one of the headliners. When it was time for them to play, you had the choice of watching them or Oh No Oh My and everyone was at the Oh No Oh My concert saying how much Death Cab suck.

Yes, clearly since more people wanted to listen to Oh No Oh My than Death Cab, that means they're a terrible band.

50 Cent is just awesome, huh?

That wasn't my point. They are a bad band because they're a bad band. I mean, they've got a couple good tracks but they aren't anyone I'd pay to see live. Not only that, but they happened to be playing at a festival I had already paid for, and I chose not to see them, so really I wouldn't see them if it was free either. Not only that, but a majority of people who had gone to a festival where they were headlining chose not to see them either. I think it validates my opinion a little bit.

By the way, if anyone has heard Oh No Oh My! they are horrible in the studio, but sooooo much fun live.

No, it doesn't validate my opinion at all, because it still boils down to "More people didn't want to listen to this band than the people who did". It still means nothing.

Ok, so in your comparison, 50 Cent is good because he is popular, supposedly. This is not a good comparison because his popularity has more to do with marketing and air play than anything is.

In my scenario, people who actually knew about Death Cab preffered to see a practically unknown band over one that they had heard of before. The only possible explanation is that the vast majority of people at the festival, ie people who in all likelihood should like Death Cab, thought they sucked.

Add in the fact that there were technical difficulties for the first 30 hour to 45 minutes of Oh No Oh My which caused absolutely no one to leave the show and walk over to Death Cab.

My argument is that they are crap because they are crap. The other facts are just to back my argument up. Why is this discussion still even happening?

Ah, you are amazingly lucky.
I love Death Cab. They're new album is all too perfect to not listen to it constantly.
I especially love the four minute intro on 'I Will Possess Your Heart'
live the life you love, love the life you live.

That's actually my least favorite part of the album. The best songs are Bixby Canyon Bridge, Your New Twin Sized Bed, and Cath.
