|Bands I've Seen Live In 2010|
A list (in perfect order) of every band ive seen in rconcert in 2010. I rincluded name of tour/name of headliner to separate rbetween rshows. Top 5 bands are marked
|1||Matt and Kim|
Bamboozle. They were good, kinda bland live with only two people
Bamboozle. Good show, but the crowd only wanted Kids, Electric Feel and Time to
Pretend. Overhead someone say "i want them to play thier old stuff" after they
played Destrokk from the time to pretend EP.
Bamboozle. Alot better than I expected. these guys put on a good show and they
know which songs people like (aka blue album plus the singles from everything
else) I think they also played a song off Pinkerton, which i heard they dont
|4||Ra Ra Riot|
Summerfest, day one. Pretty good live, but not very energetic
|5||Sugar and Gold|
Summerfest, day one. Fun funkish band. Reminds of Of Montreal
Summerfest, day two. They were really good, great festival music
Summerfest, day two. Rap, pretty G
Summerfest, day two. Best line of the year "I got mud all over my new Air Js,
but i dont give a FUCK"
|9||The Flaming Lips|
Summerfest, day two. Very good show, very disappointing set. Nothing off
soft bulliten, three songs of yoshimi.
MGMT headlined. Weird psychodelic austrailian band. Enjoyable live
Headliner. Very good band live, played a very enjoyable set. Much more fun
at thier own show than the festival
|12||The Wonder Years|
Opener for Streetlight Manfesto. Too pop punk for me
Opener for Streelight Manifesto. Very stong set, exceeded expectations by
Headliner. Best show of 2010. So much fun, so much energy. I will literally
see these guys any time they are with in 50 miles of me.
My friends band, put it on the list to note it
|16||Between the Buried and Me|
The Cool Tour. Very good technically, but not much stage presence (mainly
bc they were and opener and couldnt use the lights)
The Cool tour. Nothing special, played an enjoyable set
|18||As I Lay Dying|
Cool Tour. Very good and intense metal performance. I realized that metal
shows arent really my thing. I prefer to skank than watch people do dumb
kungfu arm swinging shit.
Headliner. Not bad, but the acoustic songs dont sound good outside
Pike Fest. Pretty fun, good rap group.
|21||The Cool Kids|
Pike Fest. Not the best beats, but they were fun to watch.
Opener for Of Montreal. Decent, very funky
Headliner. I saw these guys at summerfest 09. Alot better festival band
than headliner, mainly bc they overplayed the new album (that came out
two days before and no one knew the words to/its not that good) Would
see them again at a festival or if theyre not touring an album.
|24||Pretty and Nice|
Opener for Built to Spill. These guys were pretty good. I havent been able
to find their stuff, but this was really fun.
Opener for Built to Spill. Okay, good enough to not be bored but nothing
|26||Built to Spill|
Headliner. Very good, they played everything spot on. singer was
awesome. Too much time inbetween songs. Concert #5 of 2010
|27||Maps and Atlases|
Headliner. Caught the end of thier show, not really my thing.
Opener for Ratatat. Pretty good, opened every song by saying 'this ones
opener for Ratatat. Not good. I thought they were a hair metal band until i
heard thier songs online a month later (which isnt that bad)
Headliner. Pretty good, but I wasnt on the floor so that took alot out of it.
also they are really greedy. (25 dollars for a shirt with only two people in
the band, come on)
Opener for Big D. Entertaining and funny mock oi band.
Opener for Big D. Good hardcore punk band
|33||Big D and the Kids Table|
Halloween Show. Really fun. The venue was a little over packed, so no circle
pits. Concert #4 for 2010
|34||Koo Koo Kangaroo|
Opener for Reel Big Fish. Silly electronic band for toddlers. entertaining and
got the crowd moving
Opener for Reel Big Fish. Good ska band, played Bed Intruder song, so props.
Opener for RBF. Not really my thing, but they were enjoyable
|37||Reel Big Fish|
Headliner. Best opening bands of the year. They were awesome, had alot
of fun in the pit at this one. Concert #2 for 2010
Opener for Bear Hands. Local band, good musicans but not my style
Opener for Bear Hands. Pretty good musican, she signed the ep i bought
which was really nice.
Headliner. Awesome show, most fun alternative band ive seen all year.
