Still jealous! On top of what I mentioned before, you got to see/share the stage with Breakdown? Too awesome!

Saw Toxic Holocaust/Midnight/Zombie Holocaust/Crypt Keeper tonight in San Francisco. Midnight were SO good.

Re: What concert did you recently attend?

A few weeks ago, I saw Kina Grannis (and Imaginary Friend) as their tour rolled through. Certainly not the type of concert I attend, but both acts were very good. As I get older and go to fewer concerts, I can see this type of gig becoming more common.

(I'm so happy I bumped in to her video here on DVDTalk.)

Nasum/Landmine Marathon/Brainoil/Your Enemy @ Oakland Metro

I feel I should stop posting in this thread. This is the 21st concert/show I've been to this year

Re: What concert did you recently attend?

Saw Steve Winwood last night at Wolf Trap, great show. My only complaint was there was a bass line for most of the songs but no bass player on stage, wonder if he had somebody back stage playing it.

I also have the worst weather luck seeing Winwood, seen him 3 times, twice in the middle of thunderstorms and once when it was 100+ degrees.

Gotta say, I'm a fan of him now. Truly amazing show, and mind-numbingly brilliant guitar playing, and singing, on Bonamassa's part! If you like good blues based guitar rock, his show is well worth checking out. He put many other artists in the same genre I have seen before to shame. The crowd was also totally into it, too, and you could tell he was truly humbled by the reaction he was getting on this inaugural gig here.
I saw him when he was an absolute nobody opening for Peter Frampton in Morristown, like 10 years ago. That dude shreds and knows his blues. I haven't seen him since (although, the last two live shows he has on DVD are excellent), but if it is like the albums he is putting out it is probably very polished. And there is nothing wrong with that.

PS - His new record is fantastic

On Saturday, I went to see Danzig perform a legacy set @ Irvine Meadows. God, I fucking love that venue so much. I'll be sad to see it go in 2017.

2017?

I thought this was the last year? (Condos going up quickly right outside venue)

Edited to add: I see the lease is up in 2017, I thought it was going away this year...

I just got home from Roger Waters' The Walll Live. First live performance that I have ever went to. I'm not much for large crowds or loud music, but this was outstanding. One of the most prominent experiences of my entire life. Extraordinary.

I I just saw Thrice in Lincoln on 6/5. They were pretty good. But whoever did their lighting needs to go back to school. For at least 1/3 of their set it was impossible to keep looking at the stage because the flashing lights were directly shining the in crowds faces. I thought I was going to have a seizure.

6/12/12: Thrice/Animals As Leaders/O'Brother

Thrice and Animals As Leaders were awesome. My friend and showed up late so we could skip O'Brother. We both agree that we liked them recorded, but we saw them live earlier this year and they were boring live.

Re: What concert did you recently attend?

At Bonnaroo this past weekend:


Radiohead
Phish
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Soja
Alabama Shakes
Sharon Jones
The Beach Boys
Dispatch
Avett Brothers
Foster the People
Alice Cooper
Flogging Molly

As usual, Phish blew me away, as did RHCP. Alabama Shakes should be huge pretty soon as well, great and extremely talented band.

Yeah im seeing Radiohead this friday in Montreal! Should be awesome!

I've seen them in 1997 for Ok Computer tour and then in 2002 i think for Amnesiac Tour which was outdoors and i hate outdoor shows! and then only one of my fav band could make me go see ANOTHER outdoor show which was in 2005 i believe for the Hail to the Thief tour and then i was really glad they decided to go for more intimate smaller venue tour in 2007 for the pre-In Rainbows tour and the last time they came to Montreal it was ANOTHER outdoor show which i decided not to go.

So very happy to see them INDOORS again!


Hard to know what we'll get as set lists change so much from show to show. one of the recent shows they had FOUR Ok Computer songs which i really hope we'll be as lucky!

Re: What concert did you recently attend?

^How is your hearing holding up? I could do maybe a show a week and even with that my ears are ringing and head is pounding for a bit of time afterwards. I see that you went to two shows in three days and these bands don't appear to be the quiet type.

Re: What concert did you recently attend?

I guess I should start posting in here since going to concerts is such a big part of my life. Here are some recent ones I have attended:

5/15 M83 w/ I Break Horses at Marathon Music Works in Nashville, TN

This show was amazing. M83 puts on such a fun show that you can lose your mind to.

5/16 Jack White w/ Alabama Shakes at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville

Legendary!

5/19 Greg Laswell w/ Elizabeth Ziman at 3rd and Lindsley in Nashville
5/21 St. Vincent w/ Shearwater at The Cannery Ballroom in Nashville

This lady is one of the loves of my life and her performance did not disappoint. Amazing show from both bands.

6/7 Communion Nashville Launch Night featuring Trampled by Turtles, Robers Ellis, Michael Kiwanuka, Shovels & Rope, Cory Chisel & The Wandering Sons, and Night Beds.
6/3 Joseph Arthur w/ Anderson East and Zach Broocke at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville
6/9 The Shins w/ The Antlers and Deep Sea Diver at Iroquois Amphitheatre in Louisville, KY

The Shins were amazing as I expected, and it was great being able to see The Antlers again. The only drawback to this show was the people talking loudly behind me during The Antlers and I wish The Antlers had been able to play longer.

6/12 Graffiti 6 In-Store performance at Grimey's New & Preloved Music in Nashville

This week I have Roger Waters, Of Montreal, Tenacious D, and Norah Jones. It's going to be a great week.

For the shows I remember to bring my ear plugs to (I keep a box in the glove box of my car), they are fine.

At the ones I forget, they ring for a little bit afterward. Not too bad.

The last time my hearing went completely out was Neurosis back in 2007. Lost hearing in one of my ears and it freaked me out.

This year, I forgot to bring ear plugs to the Church of Misery show and that was by far the loudest show I've been to this year. Felt like I dodged a bullet with my hearing.

Been going to a lot of shows as part of my New Year's Resolution. I love music and love going to shows, but realized over the years I let my friends dictate what shows I went to. There were even times I was talked out of going to certain shows. If I couldn't get one of them to go I usually wouldn't go. After giving it some thought, I wondered why. Now I don't care, I'm going to enjoy the music I like regardless if I roll with 5 people or enjoy shows on my own.
