Pieces Of History

Since I can't work nor do, well, really anything until a doctor clears me, I decided to go through a bunch of boxes of pictures and whatnot out of sheer boredom. I happened to find a collection of old ticket stubs from concerts I went to over the past 10-15 years. Here's a nice little list of my ten favorite shows out of the 20-30 stubs I found.

Yes, I got to see their last show in South Florida, and it was my favorite live performance of all time. Eat that, Porch.
2Strapping Young Lad

Right after their self-titled came out. I remember them opening up with "All Hail the New Flesh." After that, it's all a blur of psychotic tendencies and amazing music.

Alex Skolnick and Chuck Billy FTMFW!

Al is a fucking nutcase, as evidenced by him offering me a bindle of heroin when I ran into him at a bar the night before.

No, not Spencer-era UO, but Dallas-era UO. Shit was ridiculous.
6Poison the Well

Being able to watch them and Thrice from onstage was epic. I've never really been one for a mosh pit, so that was the ultimate for me.

This is the most recent one(November of 2009). Even though my night was almost ruined by Suicide Silence and their fans, as well as the kid who said to me, with a norma jean shirt on, "Norma Jean is as metal as it gets," MegaDave and the band were amazing. It didn't hurt that Machine Head opened up for them.

If you've seen my list, "Brawls! Brawls! Brawls! And More Brawls!," you'd know that this was a pretty entertaining show. Right after Orchestra of Wolves came out, I went and saw these guys and saw Frank beat the living shit out of a roadie. It also didn't hurt that the band itself was fantastic.
97 Seconds

If it wasn't for the pathetic fans, this would have been higher on my list. If you're straight edge, that's cool. Form a band(like 7 Seconds), but don't try and fight me because I'm having a beer up in the balcony.
10In Flames

I don't know if it was just one of those things, but I'm one of the few people I know on this site that has the balls to say In Flames is a great live band. They sounded amazing, and the energy in the place was suffocating.
