CURTAIN TIM FOR THE ENCORE An open letter to the musicians of the regarding one of rock n rolls most wornout traditions TO The musicians of the world FROM Hartley music reporter at the Winnipeg Free Press RE THE SORRY STATE OF THE ENCORE Dear bigname recording Hows it going I know its been kinda tough for you what with all those Napster users cutting into your profit margins and record companies mating like But enough about money I wanted to talk to you about your live what exactly is the point of having an encore any more Back in the good old before rock concerts were choreographed as tightly as fight scenes from The the encore was the most exciting part of your After a sweaty perfor mance in a smoky little you would have exhausted all the songs from your regular The encore would force you to get cre ative otherwise some yahoo would toss a beer bottle at your and you might never get out of Kalama zoo or Kitchener or Killarney The basic idea behind the encore was this We loved your show so we wanted to hear For if you were The Rolling you already gave us your hits we already heard Paint It Black and Gimme Shelter and Street Fightin1 Man during the main The encore would force you to pull out some obscure blues or rework a cover of someone elses Top 40 hit du We would never know what to expect after the house lights Continued Please See CURTAIN D2 Hit me one more time The varieties of the encore experience I The Classic Encore This is the way encores are supposed to be quirky and emotionally After a set that includes all the tunes youd expect to hear from your favourite they return to dish out obscure album tracks from their early novel takes on old bluesrock standards or bizarre cover The more longlived the the more unpredictable the As a 13yearold I remember being tick led pink to hear progrock band Genesis unearth a medley of Peter Gabrielera tracks such as Suppers Ready at Winnipeg Arena in a time when the band was well on its way to becoming a lameass vehicle for Phil Collins love the Classic Encore largely has become The Ridiculously Long Encore Just as spontaneous as the Classic Encore but ultimately less the Ridiculously Long Encore feels like it goes on forever and Favoured by exuberant performers like country rocker Steve Earle and folksinger Bob this encore finds the performer returning to the stage three or even four playing for UD to an hour of additional While you do get more bang for your concertgoing the result is rather The Painfully Predictable Encore this is the most common form of encore the band saves its biggest hit for the encore usually after ending Its main set with its secondbiggest At the Painfully Predictable Encore often leaves fans feeling like the first hour of the show was point At the PPE is no more formulaic than a James Bond The OneHitWonder Encore The most despicable encore of all is favoured by cowardly new acts who only have one big hit under their After performing their sole single during their main they return to play the same bloody song sometimes without even bothering to change the arrangement The OneHit Wonder Encore was pioneered by hairmetal acts in the but has also been seen at modern kiddiepop and hiphop this creature is pretty The NoEncore Encore An increasingly common practice favoured by honest performing artists with plenty of Rather than perpetuating the farce that encores are live acts play an entire set without interruption and dont bother returning to the A good recent example of this took place at folksinger Dan Berns show last fall at the West End Cultural His fans clamoured for but he was spent and didnt try to pretend he had anything else to the artist will return to the stage to acknowledge the fan without playing any more In theatre this is
