Yeah, that's a good point, and makes me realize that in my comment I was assuming more of a not-well-known band in a small-ish venue. No drummer or rhythm section isn't a big deal if I'm just checking out a local artist in a place that holds 100-200 people. That's the situation where I'd rather see something rather than nothing. But the bigger the band or the bigger the venue, the more expectations get baked in. I'm probably somewhere between Demi's comments and my own.
