Styx. Great show.
From the Book of Deluded and/or Ridiculous, Vol. 1, page 1, paragraph 1:

Oh, any ideology has people who speak quite crassly or aren't intellectually deep. Us on the left are proud of the fact that, despite knowing we have them, we don't elect them to office or treat them as vanguards of a movement.


Should we start with Biden, Hank Johnson, Sheila Jackson Lee, and Tony Wiener and work from there? Dumbass.

every song sounded the same (holds true for their CDs, but it's irritating live).


Woah. You're going to levy that as a criticism of Isis when you attended a jesu show!?!?!

I know where you're coming from, but to me jesu sounds so much more varied. Not so much on single albums (I'll admit, songs on a single album tend to blend together. It's a fault in all drone), but album to album they have a distinct sound that I can differentiate and appreciate. All the Isis I've heard I can put on shuffle and pretty much heard the same track endlessly.

But, of course I'm going to say that, I'm a stupidly massive jesu fanboy.

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

Does Isis sound familiar?

I only ask because my friend saw Tool last fall, too, and Isis opened. He missed them as well, haha.


Actually, I just remembered it was Trans Am. Apparently they're pretty good but I wouldn't know.

I wasn't a fan of 10,000 Days, so I wasn't expecting too much from the show; but it wasn't a CD tour so they actually played a lot of earlier songs. It was actually a really good show.

As far as ticket prices go MykeVermin, they weren't any more expensive than any other concert with assigned seating. Now if you're not a fan of the band, that's a seperate issue altogether. Personally, it's the Ticketmaster fees I don't appreciate.

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.


I'm very jealous of you being able to see REM. I have a great opportunity to see them when they come to Austin in March. The problem? They're headlining SXSW and I'd have to pay $500+ for an all music pass.

Anyway, the last concert I went to was actually a tribute concert. I went to the Jeff Buckley annual Tribute concert here in town on November 17. It was great.

I went to Nightmare before Chrsitmas in SD around December 9th.

Seether, Bad Religion, Angels & Airwaves, Against me! and The Transit War

Not a bad show, but I was rather annoyed that Seether only played a fucking 30 minute (6 song) set.

Last one for me was HIM (His Infernal Majesty) back in October at someplace in downtown Baltimore, MD.

It was a rockin' show in a small place (I was about maybe 10 ft from the stage, near the front), the only down side was that they didn't do an encore...but thats cool, still good none-the-less.

Last show I went to was Circa Survive, Fear Before the March of Flames, Dear and the Headlights; in Charlotte, NC.

It was awesome. I wish I had time to go to more shows though.

:drool: I wouldn't pay Tool ticket prices to see Isis, but I'd much, much, much rather see them play than Tool.

I last saw The Reverend Horton Heat w/ Hank Williams III and Nashville Pussy. I think that was the last show I saw, anyway.


Ive seen Tool twice. Once in 1998 and again last year at Bonnaroo. You havent heard Tool till youve seen them live. Theyre albums cant begin to show how amazing they truely are. To top it off Tom Morello came out and played a good minute and a half solo on La te ra lus.

That's unfortunate.

Conscious choice or lack of options?

Awww dude. You are a lucky man. I saw them two or three years ago in Philly on Saint Patty's day. It was awesome. Everyone was trashed on Guinness and dancing. Even if you were standing still on the floor you were jumping because the floor was bouncing/shaking so much from everyone else stomping and what not. Definitely one of, if not, the most charged up shows I've ever been to.

The Police - Xcel Energy Center - July 3rd
Only paid $48 for two lower level seats at the last minute via eBay. I certainly got my money's worth out of the show.

Before that....

Roger Waters - Xcel Energy Center - June 30th
Best concert ever. Rumor has it he's coming back again this year. Must go again.

New sig coming soon.

They're great, but get there on time! Im used to concerts starting late and when I last saw Rush in the summer, they started at 7:30pm just like it said in the ticket. And they do alot of hits right out the box. Most bands concerts are newstuff, then hits, then big hits. With Rush its hits, newstuff, big hits. So dont be late! lol

The Show is the Rainbow with two crappy bands at the Box Awesome in Lincoln, NE, like two weeks ago. He's actually my former guitar teacher/neighbor, but he's pretty big in indie circles, but at the same time, not known at all. Pretty weird situation, actually.

He plays a crazy show. If he ever comes to some place near you, go.

Also, Dan Deacon is great live. My friend has a bunch of videos of the show we went to last year, which you can find on his YouTube page.

I haven't seen Bad Religion in nearly four years. I need to.

Mindless Self Indulgence - August 2007 in Charlotte. Shorter than their usual sets because it was at Projekt Revolution. They still tore it up. I may have to drive my ass across Virginia to see them in May.
