Dear Blitzen Trapper,
I have generally been fond of your music and was quite excited to see you live for the first time at Pickathon. However, I was very confused when part way through your set some interesting things started happening which included head banging, over head guitar playing, those giant arm swings air guitar champions love to do, and other maneuvers reminiscent of a Kiss concert. I'm sorry, but wtf?! When did you become rock gods? When did you even start playing rock? What I was hearing didn't sound like rock, and the whole effect was so distracting I left to go catch the end of Heartless Bastards (who were awesome!!!). Could you please get over yourselves and just play like you might not be egotistical pricks, so I can go back to enjoying your music?
