Concerts anyone?
« on: June 12, 2009, 04:01:42 PM »

As a regular concert-goer, i went to see Buckcherry live yesterday. thought they rocked. Sunday i'll be seeing some dutch singer, and next week i'll be seeing Eddie Spaghetti (the singer of the Supersuckers) live again. Also got tickets to see Brian Wilson live in july, and i've got tickets to attend the 3-day music festivall Lowlands in august. Really looking forward to both.

So, anyone else going to attend concerts anytime soon? share!

Haven't been to a concert since just before Xmas, which makes me sad. Might need to fix that.

attending concerts is one of my more fav pasttimes. anyway, in the coming months there'll be concerts of Vetiver, Blitzen Trapper, Chatham County Line, Cold War Kids, Jerry Lee Lewis and Starsailor among others. will probably not attend all of them, but plan on seeing at least Blitzen Trapper and the Chatham County Line. Furr by Blitzen Trapper is still one of the best albums of the last year

went to see Eddie Spaghetti live yesterday. he's the singer, and as he said it, a quarter of the best rock and roll band in history, The Supersuckers. he did a solo tour with his family, and i must say it rocked. it was a free gig, and there were a lot of people who just stumbled in drunk and didn't know who eddie was. i liked it nevertheless. he actually played a song i shouted, and that has never happened to me before, so that was a good change

This might be a suitable place and a suitable date to tell this story:

Blues Traveller plays a concert every year at a nearby outdoor venue, on 4th of July. Last year, my mother treated myself and Joey to attendance, so we went. My mum had a Blues Traveller t-shirt that I remember her wearing when I was a kid, but I wasn't very familiar with their music, nor was Joe. My older sister recommended them, and she was the one who talked me into saying 'sure'. Anyway, so we drive down to Red Rocks, and find parking, and walk in, and walk up the massive numbers of stairs, and then more stairs, and finally sit down just as the opener is finishing their last couple of songs. We chat a little, and listen. The band below moves out, and another band moves in -- this is around 7:00, 8:00 pm. We (rather foolishly) assume that this band is actually Blues Traveler, but.... their singer doesn't bring out a harmonica, and Mum talks about how the songs don't sound familiar, and after about an hour of listening to songs we don't know, we decide to go.

My sister only recently told us about how some of her friends, who were at that concert, said the Travelers were awesome..... and that they came on at 10:00, after the Front Range firework displays (all of which are visible from the stadium). Gah.


By the way, this is why it's called Red Rocks:



(that's facing south-west, there's an identical upcrop on the north, and the whole place is made out of that stone.)

Red Rocks is great place to see a show. Its beautiful. When I used to live in Aurora I saw numerous concerts there including Metallica, Iron Maiden, Dio, BB King, and a few others (this was the 80s-90s). there is also of course a few concert films recorded there like U2 "Live at Red Rocks". Good times.

went to see Brian Wilson yesterday. it was awesome, one of the coolest shows i've ever seen. been a Beach Boys fan for as long as i can remember. think my parents bought me a cd when i was about 9, and i loved it ever since (together with a cd of John Denver, which i loved ever since as well). it was amazing to see the man who wrote all those great songs sing them, together with a 10-man band. it literally allmost brought a tear to my eyes

First concert i went to was actually not too long ago. Went to the V Festival in Sydney to see my all time fav band, The Smashing Pumpkins (whether ppl say they are them or just Billy trying to cash in, wat ever, a name is just a name after all) Also had Queens of a stone age playing aswell. Front row of the Mosh pit = went totally wild, and was sore =P

However things didnt go so well as they were planned. Helen (Teal if ppl remember from this forums) couldnt stand the mosh pit once the Pumpkins came out, so she had to hop out. I thought she said that she will meet me at the side, so a couple mins later i got out aswell to meet her. Couldnt find her, so started panicking. I walked around the whole place the entire concert looking for her, worrying like hell. Missed the 1 thing that i mainly live for... 

After we found each other AFTER the event =P she said that she was saying for me to stay and she will watch from the side =\ She felt so bad that i missed the Pumpkins, that 2 days later, she booked 2 plane tickets, and 2 tickets to see the Pumpkins live in Melbourne Festival Hall!!! However the concert was good... I actually got a cold on the day, had to wake up at 3am to get on a plane back to Sydney and get to a wedding by 10am.

That is my 2 Cents.

Cheers, Mag.

And so I break Baz's run of consecutive posts...

I'm going to my annual Biffy Clyro concert this Wednesday coming. Oh yeah! Should kick-ass, as usual. Quite looking forward to getting hammered and annoying the passsive concert-goers.

I'm no placid guy at a concert. :P

If I remember correctly, there were rather excited reports involving a scarf, beer, cider, and being hot because you had a scarf, and jumping, and scarf, and beer ..... etc, after your last annual Clyro concert.
Hm.

Don't bring a scarf this time. :P

I lost that scarf last winter. It was legendary, as well. I mourn it to this day.

you know, this thread always reminds me of a guy I knew (not well, and haven't seen 'im in years, at least since my older sis broke up with him) who cut up his credit cards so as not to use them to buy concert tickets, but kept them in a drawer and got very good at putting them together to read the numbers.
Bit of a pointless exercise in attempted forced frugality, if you ask me.
