Still a little confused why EV is headlining over Bus... I'd obviously understand if it was PJ.

Eddie Vedder is just a lot bigger. He's an icon of rock music and his pull is enormous. And it's his festival, right? So makes sense.

He often pops up on stage alongside other artists that day. I'm 100% he will play a few songs with Glenn Hansard, pretty confident.he will join The Strokes for a song as he did before. It would be a perfect storm if joined Incubus for a song too.

What did you guys think of Jon Theodore? From what I saw on instagram he was definitely solid but as a whole it just didn't sound the same without Jose. On the bright side it seemed to me Brandon's voice we pretty strong, relatively speaking.

Welcome to the board!

I really don't have a good ear for drums, so I didn't hear that much of a difference. If I'd close my eyes and didn't know Jose wasn't there, I probably wouldn't have picked it up. I saw some videos of Anna Molly where I thought he hit a little harder than Jose does, little more powerful, but again: I don't think I would know blindfolded that it wasn't Jose.

It's also very different if you have someone filling in for a show like this or as a long(er) term replacement. I'm sure you can hear the difference between Matt Cameron's Pearl Jam or Jack Iron's (hell, half the comments on Pearl Jam's YouTube-videos are about this), but for a show where Jon Theodore is basically a higher gun, I doubt his flavor really seeps through.

I actually didn't realize that it's his festival, so that's pretty cool that he chose Bus to play the same night as him. I agree iconically he's bigger, but his solo catalog isn't, which is why I was questioning... I know he'll probably do some PJ songs too... Just saying.

Definitely agree with that, just very minute details. I think also that Ben is such an incredible musician that it probably makes it easier for a pro's pro like John to fit in seamlessly. To be clear I thought it sounded great, pretty much as good as a no-Jose show can sound.

Second that Interview request!

https://twitter.com/IncubusBand/status/ ... 3159411712

Incubus will play a warm up show for Shaky Knees on Thursday 2nd of May at the Masquerade in Atlanta. It's a 'Night with Incubus'-show, so no opener it seems, just a full headline set. They play the festival on May 3rd.

Band playing a warm-up show before Shaky Knees in a 1,000-capacity venue on May 2. Will be interesting to see the setlist for that.

I don't have high hopes setlist-wise anymore, but yeah if there was ever an opportunity... And they busted out Clean when we least expected it.

Thanks for sharing interview!

Have you guys looked at Incubus IG? They’ve been posting photos of 2001-2002 and they don’t show Dirk at all in those photos. Not sure how i feel about that.

There very well may be legal reasons why they have to crop him out. I'm not judging, as we don't know the details of the departure.

I noticed it too and don't recall them doing that before. It feels a little weird to be honest.

Don’t think so. The band has spoken about Dirk in past interviews and they seemed like in better terms with him than Gavin. If you see the interview with Stryker from last year, the band avoid talking about S.C.I.E.N.C.E.

Maybe the person who runs their IG doesn’t know much about Dirk or that particular era.

Alex and Jose are/were on good terms at least in recent years. So I have no clue what to think about this.

What I'm saying is this may have nothing to do with whether or not Dirk and the rest of the guys still get along. Legally, the guys probably can't post anything with Dirk without some formal release. Instead of going back and forth with him on what they can release, they are cropping it. Maybe they did reach out to Dirk about it and he said no. We don't know.

I, for one, don't think it's personal but people are taking it that way and using it as a reason to slam the band. Honestly, if they did have the permisson to post the photo with Dirk, there would be a million posts saying, "Does this mean Dirk's coming back?". It's a no-win situation. It's been 16 years. They shouldn't have to avoid posting pictures prior to Crow just because some don't want to deal with the reality that Dirk is out of the band and has been for a very long time.
