Bands I've Seen Live (not many)

Casual insomnia list. It would be a lot bigger but when I was living in london, I was too young/too poor and when I finally got some pocket money and freedom, I end up in the countryside, unable to travel to many gigs and/or refuse to go alone. But anyway, here's what I've managed in 19 years.
1Porcupine Tree
Fear of a Blank Planet

For the Fear of a Blank Planet tour in Cambridge. I remember just complaining to my dad about standing up for so long. I was very young and was not able to appreciate this as I should have.
2Elliot Minor
Elliot Minor

I've either seen them twice or three times. Was very into this band back in the day and it was good but I pretty much went alone (sister ditched me/wasnt able to be near me) so as a lonely, small 12 year old, i didn't enjoy it. Did accidentally punch some girl in the face though.
3Alter Bridge

For the ABC tour. Front row, Hammersmith Apollo, not bad eh? Nope, still too young. All I could do was kind of nod my head to the music and pretend to be less tired than I actually was. Myles Kennedy actually pointed at my and jocularly said 'no yawning!'. First experience being kicked in the head by a crowd surfer.
4Octavia Sperati
Grace Submerged

Well, at least I think it was these guys. It was just in a bar that my dad dragged me too and I have no memory of this gig.
5Nils Frahm

Fast forward to 2014, my taste has developed a lot more and so have I so I proceed to drag my then girlfriend to this gig, for which she's lost for words due to a lack of interest and understanding whereas I am genuinely lost for words because it was fucking amazing. Probably the best gig I've ever been to so far and the man is a total genius and watching him perform was mesmerising, especially when you could feel the electronic side of his music a lot more. Bit annoyed at myself that I was getting tired during Toilet Brushes because I spent all day hyping myself up for that song.
6Mike Oldfield
Tubular Bells

Tubular Bells for two. Decent gig. Cheap. Full of old people. Was a fun date.
7Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster

Damnation festival 2015 opening act. Pretty good, crowd were pretty still but as far as a warm up for things to come for the rest of the day, I was pleased.
De Doden Hebben Het Goed

Was ok live as the mixing was really off and the guys vocals were 10 times louder than anything else. They're better on recording.
9Voices (UK)

Damnit they were so fucking loud it was unbearable to listen to so me and a friend just left half way through the set because I was just stalling for time for the next act anyway.

Pretty good and had a lot of fun at this gig but they basically sounded like how they sounded on the album and didn't add any flare to the show but still great.
11The Ocean

Definitely the biggest and most pleasant surprise of the evening at Damnation. Opened up with Rhyacian and I can't believe how much better it was live than it is on the album. The mixing was perfect and everything complemented one another and their high energy performance made me really upset to leave 2/3rds of the way in but I had to because the next act sere the only reason I paid 30 quid for Damnation tickets in the first place.
12Altar of Plagues
Teethed Glory and Injury

Their last ever gig, no way I could miss it and no way was I not gonna be front row, especially when I only manage 5'7. Amazing show, definitely my favourite of the night and just seeing JK mesh out on his guitar during Mills was eye opening. Also, hugely impressed by the wall of noise they were able to make with just 3 people. Shame they didn't play Remedy and a Fever but my gosh was God Alone absolute perfection. They were worth the 30 quid alone.
13Little Simz
A Curious Tale Of Trials + Persons

Went to this gig alone because Mad. was indecisive about going and it ended up being filled with pasty white boys and it was only 8 quid so I thought why not. Big mistake. It was one of those gigs where getting into the dance pit was part of the experience and me sitting on the side watching quietly just made me question life. For the encore she demanded all the people on the side get to the centre to rave their arse off for the last song. Wasn't bothered, so i left for some chicken and chips.
14GoGo Penguin
Man Made Object

Most recent gig and really impressed by them. Incredible live and hearing their setup, with the double bass being the main instrument in control led to me appreciating their studio albums a lot more. The crowd loved it. I loved it. Mad. loved it, so all round fantastic gig.
15Submotion Orchestra
Finest Hour

Next one in mid April. I swear though, the music scene in yorkshire is fucking shit. The amount of bands that do a uk tour and casually miss out yorkshire is infuriating. As much as I would like to see Gorguts in Manchester of Oneohtrix in London, my wallet can't but hey, gotta make do. Now just waiting on that juicy student loan to come in so I can buy tickets for this.
