As a follow on to the obscure music thread, I was wondering what everyone's last concert was. It's one thing to listen to music and buy it online (or in vinyl), and it is another thing altogether to go to a show.

Tonight I drove to Fargo, ND and went to an Avett Brothers concert. This is the 4th time I have seen them. I sipped vodka straight and listened to fine tunes.

Damn, I need to get out more. Mine was BB King last hear. One of the worst concerts I have ever been to by objective standards. But I have seen the old man half a dozen times in better days and was more there to pay my respect. Still, he should think about retiring soon...

3 maybe 4 years ago, Tool. Talk about needing to get out more. Not bad concert, wish I still dropped, would have been better. But still a good concert.

Only twice in my lifetime,,,, our local Symphony Orchestra.. that was about 20 years ago!

IF you consider shows...
Mid 90s..
a)Tom Jones in Las Vegas when I was there for Comdex ( computer and IT) trade show. Surprisingly, I still remember that the old grannies went wild when he gyrated his hips! b) Buddy Guy when he was visiting Singapore and did a one night performance at Hard Rock cafe c) other than that.. either a Jazz or Blues club. Been out of the circuit since year 2000.

March this year if Lewis Black counts. Music wise was 2 years ago for the Black Keys. I hear peeps complain that they're too popular now, get over played on the radio and therefore suck now. First of all, who the heck listens to the radio anymore?? Second, they were just as good playing in a large outdoor venue as they were in the small indoor ones I used to see them in.

But I'm seriously stoked to hear Pearl Jam announced a tour and is playing in Baltimore! It's been 10 years since I've been to a show!

.....I used to be cool before kids.

...happens to everyone. If we had only known!

The local townships here have some great outdoor neighborhood concerts for $10. Bring a picnic, wine, some lawn chairs, a blanket. This summer: Dar Williams, Jim Boggia, Avett Bros. at one of the bigger venues two years ago. Richie Havens two summers ago. Livingston Taylor, Tom Chapin. We also have the Philly Orchestra at the Mann Center (outdoor) - saw Lang and Herbie Hancock with the orchestra. I am really fortunate to have this stuff so close by and cheap.

Sadly -- very, very sadly -- REO Speedwagon and Pat Benetar. A friend got tickets through work and his wife really wanted to go. He wanted me to suffer through it with him, and my wife was game. There were lots of beers before and during the show but that did little to dull the pain. I'll have to admit Pat Benetar was more entertaining then I expected, but REO was 100xs worse. The lead singer has some serious unresolved personal issues. At least 1/4 of the audience left while they were on stage. May have even been more, but we were one of the groups that left early so I cannot be sure.

It was a far cry from concerts of my younger days, such as REM, Kinks, AC/DC, Van Hagar, ZZ Top, George Thurogood, Page/ Plant, Soundgarden, Metallica, G'n'R. Sux getting old and domesticated :sad0:

Ah, the concerts of our youth! AC/DC the Back in Black tour, ZZ Top (can't remember the tour) Thurogood in a small bar in Oxford, MS when he was opening for the Stones in 81, too many Dead concerts to remember:O, The Who in 82, Frank Zappa (underrated wicked guitar player), Phish in a small bar in DC twice!. Seems like every month there was a good concert to attend for 20-30 bucks. Now that won't cover my beer consumption!

As far as concerts, Ozzfest in 2010... amazing to watch Ozzy rip it up at his age, Motley Crue was pretty good too

I also went there and paid scalper prices for tickets to see Frank Zappa a month earlier.

Pearl Jam was one of my first great dates with my wife. That was just about ten years ago. Really great night. Now I have a son named Eddie.

12-06-2013, 11:51 AM
My daughter's initials are PJ. Not intentionally referencing the band in a direct means. My wife came up with Presley Jean which has a lot of family meaning behind it from my side. I just quietly thought "PJ. Perfect." Didn't say anything until a few months she was born. My wife just laughed, as though she already knew, but has yet to say whether she did or not. Either way, I'm a lucky guy.

She was with me at the show. Was our first date night out since PJ was born. Had Ten Club tickets on the floor, and for 3 hours we just rocked out. Never even knew she could Rock out! Do people still say that? Rock out?

Chuckles
12-06-2013, 12:34 PM
Ed is a family name on my side but really that's just a way to get out of saying we named him after a rock singer.

I don't think people say 'rock out' any more. But in Minnesota people go to rock shows to stand still awkwardly and try to convince themselves they had fun afterwards, so the vernacular up here for that is dead. Typically when we are at shows we are the only people around us 'getting down' at all. 'Doing the boogie woogie'? ... Seriously what are the kids calling it these days?

marc4pt0
12-06-2013, 01:05 PM
Not a clue. Electric slide? But sadly, even at a pearl jam show, it seemed like in our little space on the floor, we were the only ones gettin down. Aha! I think "gettin down" is what it's called these days. F*ck it, I could care less what its called, we had a blast!

Soulfly at some podunk bar in Shakopee this February 2014 (I think, it was winter but thats 8 months of the year). I've never seen so many fights break out at a show with only 150 people in the bar.

Stone Sour and Papa Roach in april 2013 at the Myth (say what you want about P.Roach's music, I agree a lot of it is aimed at highschool girls, their live show is insane)

Avenged Sevenfold at Amsoil Arena in duluth December 2012 - that was a fun walk back to the car. parked outside a bar and took the skywalk down to Amsoil in my Pit clothes (old shorts T-shirt and old shoes tied tight as hell). It doesnt connect completely to amsoil arena yet so I had to walk outside and wait outside for a bit. The worst was the walk back to my car - the skywalk closed had about a mile walk in shorts in December in Duluth soaked head to tail in sweat :)

I missed out on seeing After the Burial this spring, got off work too late they had already finished their set :(

:plus1: I've seen him twice. First time was back in the late 80's and he was f*#k'n great. Second time was in 1999 and he was good but obviously slowing down. Sat on a stool for most of the concert and did a much shorter set. He'll always be one of the greats, but he just ain't as young as The Rolling Stones you know:D

Albert lives just up the rode from you where I grew up in Williamstown. Really accessible guy and an fine builder. Huge Little Feat fan. Just heard Tommy Emmanuel at BB Kings. Humbling for anyone that plays and finger picks.
