My girlfriend and I went to see Dream Theater for the first time on Saturday night at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater. It was an amazing show and they covered most of my favorites. They sounded great...except for one thing - there was no bass in the mix!! Or at least you couldn't tell there was any. We were about 30 feet from the front of the stage, almost dead center, and this venue is known for having great sound. I love John Myung - he's a huge influence for me - so it was pretty disappointing to not be able to hear him at all... Wouldn't a group as big as Dream Theater have their own sound guy, and wouldn't that sound guy (or one provided by the venue) want to make every instrument audible?
