The first rule of business is to give the people what they want. Maybe. As someone with very little money and even less sense of business, that may well not be the first rule of business. Logically, the first rule of business is probably “get money” or “don’t not get money.” Still, I feel like I was on to something with that whole “give the people what they want” thing. Take …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead for instance. They know what the people of Australia want: to see them. And they know how to give the people of Australia what they want: by going to Australia. The Austin/New York/HELL band will bring their prog/punk/HELL songs to the most continent-like of countries this May for a roughly handful of live dates.
That said, the giving people what they want does not end there. Those five dates will be very special ones indeed, as the band plans to play their 2002 album Source Tags and Codes in full. It would be a safe bet to say Source Tags is the group’s most beloved record, because Source Tags is the group’s most beloved record. Beyond just playing that classic album, Trail of Dead plan to enter a second part of each show by playing various highlights from the rest of their catalogue. So… they’re just going to play Source Tags and Codes again? I kid, I kid, Madonna’s pretty great, too.
