Default Concert thread

This thread is about concerts. Post memories of ones you've been to - or ones you're planning on attending.

I'm going to Lords of Acid/Combichrist/Christian Death/En Esch on Oct. 1st and am excited for it! Hopefully I can find someone to go with.

I'm seeing Spoon in a week and am pretty excited. It's my first concert in more than a year and a half, because 1) nobody comes to Detroit, 2) I'm getting old and cranky about standing in crowded rooms until after midnight.

I bought two tickets to see King Crimson later this year and I have no idea who's going to use the second ticket. Oh well!

I'll be seeing JAM Project in DC in a few weeks! I think this is their fifth US concert to date, and while I caught the first two in Baltimore, the later ones in Boston and Vegas were a little out of my range. I'm super excited!

Whoa, they're playing in Ann Arbor!

... the day before Thanksgiving.

C'mon, Fripp

(I saw them in Chicago a few years ago anyway)

I went to Forecastle with my puppy in Louisville two weekends ago!

Highlights: George Bradley and his Extraordinaires (searing old-school soul/funk), Spoon (incredibly tight set with left-field set list), Adia Victoria (Bluesy, punky, so hardcore she kept going through heat exhaustion until she cut the concert short because she had to vomit), Odesza (mesmerizing lightshow and pyrotechnics), Run The Jewels (I've never felt so alive or so heterosexual at a concert), LCD Soundsystem (jawdroppingly good), Phantogram (just really fun), Capital Cities (high energy, poppy AF), and the festival's bourbon tent (air conditioning, ALL the great bourbons at really reasonable prices, plus AIR CONDITIONED BATHROOMS and a private shaded courtyard). Just a great, great fest.

Oh man, jealous of this one. Pretty rare for bands from outside the country to make it any closer to me than DC (...King Crimson notwithstanding).


Edit: Okay so I looked this up and I would totally consider driving up to DC for the combo of JAM Project + TM Revolution ... if it weren't for the fact that I'd need to buy an Otakon badge plus a concert ticket to get in. -_-

Yeah, that part is utter nonsense. I have no interest in even setting foot inside the convention. I didn't even get a hotel room -- I'm catching a train down there in the early afternoon, and then I'm on a train back at 3am. THE RAAAIIIID

Carly Rae Jepsen does a hell of a live show, and draws a really diverse crowd. If she's in town, you should go.

Waiting for the rumored Smashing Pumpkins original line-up show. And NIN if he ever adds more dates.

ZZ Top is playing in NOLA in November. I almost want to go just to hear "La Grange" live. But Tori Amos is playing as well two days later, so I may have to make a decision there. (I've already seen Tori once before.)

Oh shit! Just noticed Mastodon is playing in Orlando on 9/26 and I'll be there on business that week. Strong possibility of that happening.

Recent shows? I saw Pixies back in May and they were incredible.

Just bought tickets for this. Been a hot minute since I've been to a metal show. Looking forward to it.
