We seem to be tracking nearly everything that CAGs spend money on, but I'm not aware of a live music thread...so here we go!

What was the last concert or show you attended?

From the biggest, baddest, most bloated arena-rock spectacle to that intimate, impromptu, not-the-least-bit pretentious acoustic cafe gig you attended...this is the place to document all of your musical adventures.

Post anything you feel like sharing.

My last show?
The Dresden Dolls with Meow Meow and The Luminescent Orchestrii
Orpheum Theatre, Boston
Saturday, December 29

Killer show, great energy...The Dolls live is always an adventure.

The show-closer was a rowdy troubador-punk cover of "Sweet Dreams" with all members of both opening bands on stage. Awesome.

My last concert was to see Joe Bonamassa. He is probably one of the greatest guitarists I have ever heard, and seeing him live was amazing.

Cracktoberfest

Which was Leftover Crack (third time in a year), Toxic Narcotic, I Object, and Millions of Dead Cops.

Was all the way back in October though, so I've been in a bit of a lull.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

It's been awhile.

Particle
The Social (Orlando, Florida)
September 28, 2006

I never heard of them before but I got free tickets so I figured what the hell. The Social is a very weird venue. Think a tiny bar that fits about 150-200 but the building is longer more than it is wide. So the band, dance floor and bar is less than a stone throw away. It was packed wall to wall with people and you could barely walk through the place. We showed up early so we sat at the bar dead center in the middle.

Particle is a fairly weird band too. They are a instrumental electronica/jam band and the crowd was on fire. They were also very fucked up along with the keyboardist. They played for 2 hours and said that they would be back to play even more after a break but I left since it was almost 2 in the morning and we had a almost 2 hour ride ahead of us. Late dinner at Denny's and than bed.

Fantastic performance and if they ever come back, I'll go see them.

This isn't from my show (can't find shit from my show or my photos) but it's a good representation.



I got tickets to see B.B King on 5/5/2008 so my lack of concerts will be ending soon :bouncy:

I missed Streetlight Manifesto because I was out on a business trip. Still kicking myself over that one. I hope they come out here though...I really do. I would go to three shows of theirs in a row if they did each of their albums back to back to back.

Anyway, the last one's were:

Shakira (guess why...but it actually wasn't bad. She's a darn good performer.)

Last show I went to was a benefit show in DC at the end of September with:

Strike Anywhere
Cloak/Dagger (hardcore punk, sounds like a mix of Black Flag and Hot Snakes)
Pash (Indie from VA)

Not sure what my next show will be, working swing shift makes it hard to go to shows during most of the week.

The New Pornographers in Washington DC back in October. I've seen them live 3 times now and the band gets bigger each time. NPR has a podcast of the show on their website under 'all sounds considered' if you're interested.

I'm going to the Langerado festival in early March in south Florida with the Beastie Boys headlining Friday night and REM Saturday night. I especially excited about REM since they'll probably debut all of their upcoming album material at the show.

OMG I hate you. Soooo jealous.

And for me .. my last concert was Australian Pink Floyd show in November at the Hershey Theater in Hershey, PA. If you guys are even the slightest Pink Floyd fan and APF plays near you, go see them! You will not be disappointed. They basically copy Pink Floyd verbatim visually and audio wise from the Pulse concert. They even have the big circular screen with all the same videos and the giant inflatable pig.

It's been a while since my last one - Anti-Flag, Big D & The Kids Table, and Set Your Goals at Chain Reaction in Anaheim.

The next one will probably be Bamboozle Left. The Movielife "reunion" is something I'm not going to miss.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Was Del any good because I know a couple people who saw him, and they said it was really weak.

I last saw:

Aesop Rock, Black Moth Super Rainbow, and Blockhead. All in one spot... I actually missed blockhead due to being late which really sucked. Aesop and BMSR were the shit though.

I love the social in Orlando. It was a great place to watch bands perform in a very intimate setting. I saw many bands play there. I do miss going their when I lived in Orlando.

I haven't been to a concert in around 3 years. My last show was either Beck or The White Stripes. Both were excellent and a few days apart so I don't remember who I saw last.
