"I get so tired of seeing states get 6 fucking shows from bands I'd absolutely love to see. Might have to make the drive over there for this."

Except it seems that most bands that tour the US rarely hit states in the West like Utah, Colorado, the Dakotas, Idaho, Montana, etc... They always go straight to California or Texas lol. It bums me out.

I saw Godspeed on the first date of the NA tour in Feb. I kid you not when I say, it was underwhelming. After seeing Sigur Ros live 6 years ago, no other post rock band has come close to that performance.
