My initial interpretation of this review is that the author has a tough time enjoying him/herself these days? Hopefully not.

You are making a logical error here whose frequent use doesn't make it any less of a fallacy.

Mr. Bertolet said exactly zero in his review about having a good time at the show. He commented, fairly and even generously (he declined to mention how atrociously "Mango" was played, undoubtably to spare the feelings of commenters like you), about the music played at the show.

A critical evaluation of music has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO with how good a time anyone at the show or on the couch had. He is not saying you were wrong to enjoy yourself. He may very well have had the time of his life watching the webcast. We have no idea, because he didn't address it, because it's completely irrelevant.

HTH
