Re: Concerts you have attended

Only concerts I have attended are Christian ones, which I enjoy a lot, especially Christian punk, rock, or hard rock (Skillet is one of my favorites).

HOWEVER, I just went to the Chicago Cubs game last Saturday (the day they won the division and playoff berth!). The stadium was rockin' nearly the whole time. I have never had that much fun at a baseball game, and there has not been any concert louder than the stadium that day.

Would have loved to see Blink-182, but alas they are no more.

There's nothing, nothing like one's first GWAR concert.

Re: Concerts you have attended

No international bands. Just nationally local ones. But I sure want to go to a Slipknot concert (not Conan O'brien's Slip Nuts). I hope they don't disband 2-3yrs from now so that we can see them when we've migrated.

But honestly I prefer small shows than concerts with thousands in the crowd.

Was anybody (scapers) there when Portishead played in NY? That was an awesome show.

I can only imagine. My college roommate was very into GWAR so I'm somewhat familiar.

Re: Concerts you have attended

1st concert: Extreme

I've managed some better ones since then. A few particularly memorable ones:

Radiohead. This was back when they wanted to be a proper rock band: Thom Yorke had big floppy hair; Jonny Greenwood thrashed around on the guitar; they weren't too up themselves to play Creep; Pop is Dead was the new-single-to-be. Hard to imagine now. They were the support band to James who were also pretty awesome.

Antiproduct. I've seen these guys a few times. The most memorable was the gig where Alex (the singer) stripped naked and spray painted himself orange. Sticks in the mind that. And for crowd experiences, many people bouncing up and down chanting "Bungee Jumping People Die" is an experience everyone should try. Toshi is an awesome bassist, and filled in for Danny at...

The Wildhearts' Last Gig Ever. They've had quite a few last gigs ever now, but keep getting back together. This one was in Brixton. Ginger (singer) and CJ (guitarist) clearly hated each others guts at the time, but Ginger and Toshi rocked hard. As a bonus, Lemmy was hanging out in the bar.

Gomez. One of my favourite bands and certainly favourite live act. This is one of the few gigs I've been to in the US. Nothing special to note, just all round excellence.

Some other fun/interesting/embarrassing (delete as applicable) bands:

Shed Seven, Drugstore, Belly, Smashing Pumpkins, Blind Melon, Lenny Kravitz, Die Toten Hosen, Terrorvision, Sultans of Ping FC, Crowded House, Ben Keller, Silver Ginger 5, Compulsion, Ash (when the singer was just 17; we chatted to his mum in the bar), Pop Will Eat Itself, Johnny Zhivago, B-Movie Heroes, and a Glastonbury trip that included REM, Hole, Beautiful South, Gomez, Suzie and the Banshees, and a whole bunch more.

In almost related news, this week saw the launch of my first tribute act: "Ollie* and the Sweater Vests". As far as I can tell, the name is a homage to my wife's knitting skills (I have quite a sweater vest collection). Rock covers apparently---I wasn't there and didn't hear about it until afterwards.

*They used my real name here, not Ollie.

Re: Concerts you have attended

Criminy, I left out some also...

Phil Collins
Suzanna Vega

And the first concert I ever went to (as opposed to the first one I ever bought my own ticket for that I listed previously): The Black Watch (extra credit to whoever can identify them without looking them up at all)

Jim

Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide shot selection!

I eventually saw them a second time, but the novelty had worn.

But the first time???
Whoah. It was at long gone venue in Oakland.
They had a giant meat grinder on the stage and throughout the show, they'd put 'plants' from the audience into the contraption.
Turn the handle - voila! a pit full of moshers showered in blood.
It was very dangerous in that pit as people were slipping and falling onto the concrete. After the show everyone's drenched in red - fake and most likely some real!
And that was the tame stuff I can type online.

As cheesy as the theatrics and costumes were, it was still impressive and staggering to realize the effort, money, and supplies it must've taken the band to put perform each show! And how did they play in those cumbersome outfits???
