|How Am I Not Deaf Yet - 3 Years of Concerts/Hard Jams|
Probably forgetting like 20 shows, but this is what I've seen just in the last 3 years, almost all during the times when I was single (which was about half). The lesson: 1. Rock is life. 2. Stay single. Life is better.
7th row. By Chancellor. I can't even fucking begin to explain how incredible that rhythm section sounds live.
|2||A Perfect Circle|
Mer de Noms
Drove from Fargo to Tulsa for this one. Was going to go with my GF at the time. She started a fight and said we weren't going. I still went, by myself and had a fucking blast.
Ride the Lightning
Saw them 3 times in one week (Sioux Falls, Grand Forks, Minneapolis). Went to the Minneapolis show with Inveigh and we rocked like absolute GODs
Reign in Blood
I'm 38 and survived the pit. Helps that I'm huge and was once a mighty athlete.
Ok this is cheating as its this Friday in Chicago but whatever I'm stoked.
Among the Living
Actually somehow saw them 3 times in this period. Shred fest every time. Their songs are WAY better live.
Was baked AF for this one, worked out well.
Twice. Had 3rd row both times. Stevie sang a cover of Free Falling with a video montage to Tom Petty and I fucking lost it.
73 and still crushing it.
Took my daughter to see him at Lambeau Field (only a 8 hour drive). Was one of the best nights of my life. 38 songs. 3 hours.
|12||Alice in Chains|
They sound awesome, although their stage presence is terrible tbh
|13||Third Eye Blind|
Third Eye Blind
Twice. Honestly they sucked hard both times. Played fine but totally mailed in the shows. Showed up, played for an hour, and left.
No one puts in more effort in his shows. Absolutely nobody. Incredible performer.
Can't even begin to describe how fucking awesome Dave Grohl is in concert. A MUST see.
It was a show. It delivered on that front.
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Back to back nights. Same exact show both nights. Played almost 3 hours. Man still jams hard. Music, that is.
The Midnight Organ Fight
Saw them 4 days after Prince died, in Minneapolis. Scott did an acoustic cover of Purple Rain. Wasn't a dry eye in the house. Incredible show. Incredibly grateful I got to see him before he passed.
|19||Gang of Youths|
Go Farther in Lightness
Saw them in a club that holds maybe 200 people. I was right up front, jamming extremely hard, singing almost every word. The singer pointed at me several times in acknowledgement. I was vindicated.
These guys absolutely fucking slay. All of the songs are MUCH better live.
|21||Black Label Society|
Absolute shred fest
|22||Corrosion of Conformity|
I mean they have hard jams
The New Order
Great live band. Chuck rules hard.
|24||Lamb of God|
As the Palaces Burn
These guys are substantially better live.
Believe it or not, they fucking slay live.
Was an emotional night. My daughter's first rock concert, and I found out my friend commited suicide an hour before the show. Needless to say I was a fucking puddle during Say It Aint So
Sounded great. ZERO showmanship. Didn't talk to the crowd once.
The Sound of Madness
Was right up by the stage so maybe I'm overrating it, but they have incredible energy.
God Loves Ugly
Got to meet Slug before the show, great night.
The Strength/The Sound/The Songs
They opened for Godsmack and mailed it in. I was pissed.
|31||Goo Goo Dolls|
A Boy Named Goo
What can I say I'm a 90s kid, the nostalgia was high.
As Daylight Dies
This ruled hard. Jesse sounded great, Adam is a fucking showman.
One of the most entertaining live bands ever. Chainsaws and whiskey and songs about cocks, hookers, and guns.
Devil Without a Cause
Say what you will this guy puts on a monster show. He plays multiple instruments too. I was actually shocked how good the show was.
|35||The Black Dahlia Murder|
I got a solid workout in this night, holy shit.
|36||The Avett Brothers|
I and Love and You
Love this band. Played too many ballads.
Denim and Leather
They opened for Priest and almost blew them off the stage.
Grave Dancers Union
Club of maybe 200 people in Eau Claire, WI. Quality show.
Absolutely terrible stage presence.
Flesh & Blood
m/ hard. Say what you will, Poison shows are a fucking party.
And the Forests Dream Eternally
I hate this genre but they did alright.
Gavin likes to go into the crowd.
Something Like Human
Terrible live band
Met Lajon before the show so that was cool, performance was average.
The Sin and the Sentence
Heafy shreds hard live. They blew Sevendust off the stage.
|46||Macklemore and Ryan Lewis|
It was a free show as he played a private concert at a Microsoft event. Was pretty fun. I was rocking harder than anyone. Nerds.
I JUST missed the show where he went completely OFF on the crowd for talking. Did a shitload of covers. Guy can sing.
Still hot AF
Was like the 5th time I'd seen them so whatever.
All acoustic show in Seattle. I went because I was working on this chick on my team and she wanted to go.
Ok obviously this band SUCKS , but there was a cool moment. They were playing the Key Arena in Seattle days after Tom Petty died, and they did an acoustic cover of I Wont Back Down, 20,000 people singing. Chills to the bone. As for their own songs, well, fuck them.
Solo. He sucked.
Blow My Fuse
The singer is like 5'1 120 lbs and would lose a fight to a parapalegic field mouse, but they actually jam hard.
Greatest Hits 1990-1995
I live in ND. Do the math.
Port Saint Joe
They actually rule live.
Time Is Up
Fuck these guys shred live.
Carved In Stone
Its twice as bad as I was prepared for. Absolute train wreck. I still loved every second of it. Motley for life.
