Best Live Bands

List of bands that put on the best live performances I've seen to date. Feel free to add any that you think is a must-see band.
1Dillenger Escape Plan

It could have been the fire-breathing. It may have been due to their insane leaps off stack into the crowd. Could have been that they ripped the ears out of all their listeners, in a good way. Hell, maybe it was the abundance of marijuana smoke filling the room. But these guys fucking OWNED.

(Pre-The Question) One of the most energetic bands, played their music flawlessly, awesome charisma, dressed up as fruit, win. After they've released their new albums (I haven't seen them post-Shallow Seas), they're still not bad, but they're not as energetic and fun as they used to be.

All three times, Zao never failed to put on one of the most lively shows I've ever seen, despite their age.

Take any chance you get to see these guys. They will blow you away with expert musicianship and undoubtedly some random crazy, and awesome surprise.
5Brand New

Played without missing a note, and really gets the crowd that personal feeling. Great great band to see.
6Dance Gavin Dance

(With Johnny Craig) I was skeptical, since on DTBM Craig has such a dynamic voice that he'd have to fill, but I was not let down in the slightest. He sang perhaps even more dynamically live, and even Mess's screams were tolerable.

If you like very loud, very heavy, very chaotic performances, you'll definitely like to see this band.
8August Burns Red

They seem to play at every metal show I attend, and I can honestly tell you that they have played absolutely flawlessly all 5 times I've seen them. Very heavy, technical, and charismatic showing.
9The Casualties

I'm honestly not a huge punk fan, but I've seen these guys 3 times, once at warped, twice with my friends who love punk, and I've got to say these guys put on a fantastic show. Very involved with the audience - kickin people in the face, running around in the little circle pit punching people as he runs by shouting, ect. Great times.
10HORSE The Band

They're just freaking hilarious. I'll admit, they put on a pretty bad performance when it comes to musicianship, but I guarantee you'll laugh your ass off if you see this band.
11The Dear Hunter

Probably the best musicianship I've ever heard live. Ever.

There is nothing not to like about these guys. They play perfectly, they're rude in the funniest way possible. Just great.

If you saw these guys at Warped this year, you'll probably know what I'm talking about. The vocalist (who is very small) starts shit with everybody, it's hilarious.
14The Number Twelve Looks Like You

Interactive, crazy, excellent. Seem to enjoy what they do, unlike a lot of bands these days.
15The Irish Front

I saw these guys before I heard them on CD, and I have never been so impressed by a band I haven't seen before. Very heavy and very fun to watch. When I looked them up and watched their little Summer tour video, almost all of their footage was from the show I saw them at, so maybe they were just really good that night? I don't know, but I'm not impressed from their CD material.

Fun. Good. Interactive. Not much else to say really. That one famous single (that I ironically can't remember the name of) was epic.

Amazing music. Amazing performance. Amazing beards.
18Andrew Bird

Best musician evar. He had the most amazing setup with like 20 instruments that he could play to his liking. And oh boy did he..
19Casey Jones

One of the craziest performances I've seen.
20The Academy Is (acoustic)

Best acoustic setup that I've seen.
