1. When you decide to see an instrumental band you're familiar with and like, what makes you want to see them live as opposed to just listening to their studio recordings? Is it just the spectacle of the technical execution? I'm thinking about non-improv based performers - CHON/AAL/bands with tracks set in stone. 2. Which elements of performances by unknown instrumental bands get you thinking 'this is great, i'm having a fun time here, i'm enjoying myself, I'm going to check these guys out further.'? For myself, it's mainly the technical execution. Watching CHON casually play super clean runs live is amazing.
