we had a best albums of 04, now tell me your 3 favorite shows you went to in 04



Forensics/Baroness in August - My favourite band with a band I had never heard of. The place was a small bar that could hold maybe 65 kids tops. Baroness has so much feedback in their music it made my insides shake. I think there was like 10 kids who stuck around for Forensics. So sad because they're so amazing.



Hot Cross/One AM Radio/some ex-North Of America band in July - Every band was so different, but every band was reeeeally good.



Bunch of bands in December - A few friends put on a show in my city and it was amazing to see the turn out of about 400 people come out from the toughest of nu metal bros to the wimpiest of emo girls. The music wasnt amazing but it wass just the atmosphere of the entire night.

I saw lots of bands (big and small) play. But the faves were:



1. dEUS (it was utterly, amazingly fab)

2. Gene (their second last show before they split. Wonderful)

3. Interpol (Oh. My. Lordy.)



( Argh why must i be limited to 3????

Runners up - the Cure, Pixies (!!), British Sea Power, the Shins, Tindersticks, the Earlies and Morrissey. )

Oohh..there were a lot on concerts on the cheap here this summer. Top of the list:



Indigo Girls at Frederick Meijer Gardens (fantastic! ampitheatre)

Bela Fleck and the Flecktones - 2 shows, one also at the Gardens

Chicago Rhythm and Blues Kings at a Blues Festival

Koko Taylor at HOB Chicago



and of course,



Pat Benetar.

I had a ball at last years 'Big Day Out' which is a huge music festival on every year in Australia. There are five stages going all day. I love festivals (this year I scored free tickets to the Gold Coast shows after I bought tickets to the Melbourne show, so will go twice.)



I also enjoyed seeing the Mark Lanegan Band.



Local acts around here that no-one else has probably ever heard of.

SHIHAD! SHIHAD! SHIHAD! (ok so at the time their name was still Pacifier, but that didn't stop the masses chanting Shihad. TRADITION NEVER DIES.).

I rather enjoyed the Barenaked Ladies/Alanis Morissette concert this summer.



It was the only one I went to, but I still enjoyed it very much.

Rock Against Bush with NOFX just because of what it was.



Flogging Molly on St. Patrick's Day, just because, if there's any better day to see Flogging Molly I can't think of it. (I have an unhealthy obsession with that band, if you didn't already know. Plus I couldn't make it to the Dropkick Murphy's St. Patrick's Day.)



Also, Jimmy Eat World isn't really my style but they put on a good show in Arizona because they're from here. They're much better live than they are recorded.

this year was also a huge dissapointment for missing shows. Sex Positions, Isis, Burnt by The Sun, Sonic Youth. Major bummer.

The Dresden Dolls w/ Devotchka: Amanda & Brian from the Dolls compliment each other so well on stage; they're totally made to play music together. Devotchka is indescribably great live.



The Blood Brothers (twice): Both shows were equally great. They're always full of energy on stage and the crowd always goes ape sh*t, so it makes for an even wilder time.



The Black Heart Procession: I wasn't sure if their songs would translate live, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that their sound is just as full and atmospheric as it is on their records.

I only went to a few last year:



1. De La Soul at the ill fated Alrosa Villa (easily the best show I saw).

2. Moviola (several times) but their best show was at Used Kids Records.

3. Old 97s at Little Brothers (probably the hardest working and most eager to please band I've ever seen)

4. Cake with Northern State (not bad but I could have done without the fratboy heavy crowd).



I regret having missed so many (Mos Def, RJD2, Tim Easton, etc.).

Ha ha, where I'm from? Can you somehow tell by the shows? Only one of those bands is from my home town, and they were just local openers.



Hm, honorable mentions of shows go to:



Break the Silence + Much the Same



Bad Religion + Rise Against



Against Me + The Blood Brothers

Saw Rocket Science - they kicked ass.



but Homebake was by far the best - had Aussie bands (and at least one kiwi band) in a lollapalooza style multi-stage event. Rocked big time. BIG time.



I can't wait to go to BDO. Three words: Serj. Tankian. Live.



See you there, Des!

God...being stuck in a college town had reduced my opportunities for shows. Nonetheless,



1. Cave-in and Converge.

2. Dillinger Escape Plan

3. Isis and Mogwai (technically in 2k3)

4. Mouse on Mars (the best live band I've seen. seriously. This was my third time seeing 'em though.)



quality, not quantity, baby!



ebola

np: fantomas

You're all going to be completely unsurprised by my answer to this...



#1 best concert: Rooney, with Ozma and Straylight Run opening.



Very close second: Enter The Haggis, with the Border Collies opening.

We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.

heh. enter the haggis. hehehehe.

i've seen rooney a few times in my day. not a bad band live, though they're not really my thing anymore.

(what am I talking about, it was like a year ago. I'm sounding...uh...older)

And the Least Cool Vegan Award goes to... Verbie!



I saw Clay Aiken six times. Three of those concerts were in one weekend. I never get tired of seeing him live. He's one of those singers who is better in concert than in the studio.
