Live In '10

The bands/shows I've seen in 2010 in order of how much they ruled.
1Brand New

Saw them with Kevin Devine (who ruled as well) and it was about as good as I thought it would be. Opened with 'Vices' and closed with 'Play Crack The Sky', also met KritikalMotion in the pit, which was pretty cool.
Axe To Fall

Saw them with Genghis Tron, and they DESTROYED. Played a good mix of their stuff (nothing pre-JD aside from the closer) and even though they closed with 'The Saddest Day' instead of 'Jane Doe' it was still kick ass. Jacob Bannon is awesome also.
3Every Time I Die
New Junk Aesthetic

With 50 Lions. Easily the most fun I've had at a gig.
Worship And Tribute

At Soundwave. Played mostly stuff off Worship and Tribute and only one song from EYEWTKAS, but it was still incredible. Crowd sucked ass though, and seeing them at a festival wasn't ideal.
5The Dillinger Escape Plan
Option Paralysis

With Maylene And The Sons of Disaster, had to get new glasses after this gig because they got stomped on but it was worth it. Greg's biceps seem to have gotten bigger since last time.

Played all of Doolittle. Don't really think I need to explain this.
7Polar Bear Club
Chasing Hamburg

With Break Even (who were really fucking tight). The nicest band I've ever had the pleasure of seeing, shittons of energy.
8Chuck Ragan
Feast Or Famine

The Revival Tour with Frank Turner, Ben Nichols and Tim Barry. Whole gig had one of the best vibes I've experienced, would've been higher up if I didn't have to leave early to catch the bus home.
9Girl Talk
Feed The Animals

At Big Day Out 2010. Crowd was full of fags (easily the worst festival crowd in Australia, year in, year out) but Greg was just too good at getting people hyped up.
Grey Britain

Frank Carter is the maddest cunt in punk rock. Met ThePalaceOfWisdom just before lolol.
11Sunny Day Real Estate

So tight live. Was hot as hell though.
12Eleventh He Reaches London
Hollow Be My Name

Twice, with Suffer both times. So much better live than on record.
Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... Pt II

Did lots of Wu-stuff circa Enter The Wu-Tang which was baller. There were 2 fights during the gig and one huge fight outside afterwards, which kind of ruined the experience.
14Rise Against
The Sufferer And The Witness

Big Day Out 2010. Were good live though their setlist SUCKED, and again, crowd blew.
15The Get-Up Kids
Something To Write Home About

Soundwave 2010. They were great live, wish I'd been more into them at the time. Stupid All Time Low fans were everywhere though because they were playing next and FUUUUUUUUU ALL TIME LOW FANS ARE THE WORST FUCKING PEOPLE.
Crack The Skye

Big Day Out 2010. Their beards are more impressive in real life.
Hollow Crown

REST OF THESE BANDS ARE RANDOM FESTIVAL BANDS. Soundwave 2010, were actually decent.
18The Decemberists
The Crane Wife

Big Day Out 2010. Were really nice late afternoon on a smaller stage.
19Reel Big Fish
Turn The Radio Off

Soundwave. Was nostalgic as fuck for me, and they were legit entertaining.
20Jimmy Eat World

Soundwave. Only caught the last 5 songs of their set, but they were great.

Soundwave. Could barely hear anything over the number of 14 - 16 year old girls SCREAMING.

Big Day Out. Were actually alright until they started playing their Resistance stuff. Crowd absolutely SUCKED though, couple started mackin' on each other right in front of me.
Vulture Street

Were decent but I mean, honestly, Powderfinger aren't the kind of band I'd go out of my way to see.
24The Mars Volta
Frances The Mute

Were actually really good, forgot about them though or else they would've been higher. Played a sweet mix of older stuff and the new, and Cedric's dancing is hilarious.
25 The Aquabats!
The Fury Of The Aquabats!

THIS SHOULD BE WAAAAY HIGHER. They were fucking AWESOME live, pretty obvious don't take themselves seriously and were just heaps of fun. MC Bat Commander is fucking hilarious.
