On this night, that world was the small stage at the Melkweg and in it we found 500 people who were apparently the biggest Dispatch fans in the world. Until several hours before the show we had not even heard of Dispatch. But right from song one through to the double encore, these guys knew every word to every song and jumped and danced and screamed like this was the live music event of 2012.
The funny thing is, Dispatch aren't really the best band in the world. I have seen plenty of more talented musicians and I have seen plenty of bands that have sold more records. But sometimes it is good to be reminded that this is also meant to be fun. Everyone came to this show to have a good time, including the band and that is exactly what every single person there got. Good old fashioned, crazy, fun.
Dispatch: Open Up, with dance moves.
