Artists you've seen live

Oh snap, I love them! A bunch of my friends (all furries, actually) just went to see them this past Saturday night, but I couldn't go. Damn my inability to be in two places at the same time. :(

yeah, i like them live a lot better than recorded. they're so crazy and they're so good at pumping up the crowd.

That's exactly what I've heard, that it doesn't matter whether they're playing for a huge festival-sized crowd or 40 people in a tiny club, they just totally put everything they have into the show.

One of my friends who went to the show this past weekend posted his review in his FA journal, if you care to read it. They always go to Polysics shows in orange jumpsuits, and the band took pictures of them and put them on their page.

EDIT: Also, just booked tickets to see Staind (WOO!) in January supported by Seether (YAY!) and Papa Roach (Yawn). Staind and Seether are two of my favourite bands so when Aaron Lewis told me they were going on tour together I almost collapsed with joy.

StainD is awesome, too bad Mr. Lewis is a jerk =| ...I've never seen them, but Fill Me Up is "our song"... xD My Dad's been twice. I saw Seether once, before they were Known Everywhere, in a little bar. The best concerts I've been to happened in little bars...

One time - at a bar in the Harrah's casino in New Orleans - I saw lil' Jon.


It's not a gimmick: He really does say nnYEAAAAH & WWWHAT all the time.

There were some other big wigs there for the NAACP event there, too, but I specifically remember lil' Jon and his crew w/ fat chicks.

TRY BEATING THAT, HUH?

TRY BEATING COMING WITHIN 5 FEET OF A CELEB BY TOTAL COINCIDENCE.

OK, I'll give it a shot.

In an earlier post I mentioned that I went to a show by a band called Neurotic Outsiders, a band that included Billy Idol, John Taylor of Duran Duran, Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, and Matt Sorum & Duff McKagan of Guns 'n Roses/Velvet Revolver. Since this group had so many notable people in it, a lot of other notables were there to see the show. I later heard that Dan Aykroyd was in attendance, as well as several members of Aerosmith (no big surprise there, really, since the show was at Mama Kin, their club in Boston).

After the show I was walking towards the exit when I walked right by this dude who I looked at and thought, "Wow, that guy looks exactly like Jimmy Page." I walked out of the club, and then realized that my friend who I went to the show with was no longer with me. A few seconds later he comes out going, "That was Jimmy Page!" lol... it turned out that Robert Plant and Jimmy Page were in town to play the Garden the next night, and they were both at the show. I walked within inches of Page and just assumed that it was someone who looked like him lol. My friend was freaking out, because growing up, Jimmy Page was pretty much his hero.

So in one night, I got to be in the same cramped little club with Billy Idol and members of Led Zeppelin, the Sex Pistols, Aerosmith, Duran Duran, and Guns 'n Roses. Not too shabby. :D

Oh that's really too bad, they seriously put on a show like nothing I've ever seen. They keyboardist was standing on his keyboard and the lead singer was eating lit cigarettes while performing, they were nuts haha.

I can't remember all the gigs I've been to, but the one's that stick in my mind would be Meshuggah, Torche and Deftones.

I also saw The Pixies a few years ago when they toured all the UK summer festivals. I was stoned out of my head, wrapped in a blanket I stole from the Oxfam tent, crying like a lost little child and screaming the lyrics back at Black Francis and the gang. There was only me in that field - regardless if there were several thousand people doing exactly the same - it was a very special moment.

And then they played The Girl In The Radiator Song and I pretty much could have died then and there <3
