(Not Just Summer) Concerts!

421 posts in this topic

I just got tickets to see The Get Up Kids on NOV 1st in Brooklyn. I landed some Sunny Day Real Estate tickets also.

Wow, that sounds like a great show. Didn't know that Matt Pryor was back on tour with The Get Up Kids, with the success of the New Amsterdams and all. Good stuff!

just got back from All Points West...

Tool was fantastic can not describe how awesome they were.

My Bloody Valentine in other hand, was a complete crap... The sound were horrible, everything was away to Loud, Drums away louder than guitar, bazz agian away to loud. You could not hear any vocal.

It was just a mess of noise. Surely wasn't their fault the sound were a disgrace, but i doubt anyone who was there to see tehm, enjoyed the concert.

Ha-ha-haa!!! Where's Deke at? It sounds like his wish came true.

I think My Bloody Valentine is playing one day there, I really hope they play as loud as humanly possible and scare away all of the 15 year old kids back into the parking lot.

haha A girl I know was there and she came back saying as many bad things about My Bloody Valentine as possible. She said something about them playing the same chord for nine straight minutes.

That IS MBV though. People who don't like 'em will never be swayed by the live show. It's LOUD and droning and kind of ridiculous. I like 'em to a point, though not as much as I did seven or eight years ago. I probably wouldn't have had the patience for it had I gone on Saturday.

Also, Coldplay covered Fight For Your Right To Party on Sunday, apparently.

It sounds, well, just as you would expect Coldplay covering Beastie Boys to sound.

Also, I need to brush up on The Pretenders. I know like, two songs by them. But Amanda wanted tickets for her birthday, so we're going next week in Asbury Park.

And I kind of want to see Mighty Mighty Bosstones the week after, but probably can't.

That was a nice gesture on Chris Martin's part or whoever else's idea that might've been. If only there were a version of that performance without all the audience singing drowning him out on the chorus (although I'm sure there are a lot of people who would rather hear just the fans singing it without him altogether).

As for The Pretenders at The Stone Pony, I wish I could be there. That's gonna be a cool show!

And the Bosstones too, although I would've rather have seen them back in the day when they were still a little bit hardcore.

Apparently Jay-Z covered No Sleep Til Brooklyn as well. Which was also a nice gesture, unless your like me and take it as a semi-backhanded slap at Jersey, being as he's a part-owner of the Nets. :lol:

Hmmmm...Bosstones, Catch 22 and the Pietasters...that just might be worth the trip! Bosstones are always good, Catch will be sadly average and the Pietasters will bring down the house.

I should HOPEFULLY be at that Bouncing Souls show. Have tickets for the one the night before, but my friend Amanda can't go to that one, so probably going on the 21st now.

Pretenders on Sunday, Bouncing Souls on the 21st hopefully...that's it for me by way of concerts this year. Goddamn what a sh!tty summer.

No prob, glad someone was able to get some use out of 'em. One of the worst feelings in the world is throwing out tickets you couldn't use.

Glad you had a good time.

Right now they are, but if you look at what Creed did back in the day Creed is a lot better and they had a lot more hits than Alter Bridge does. However Stapp isn't what he used to be and now Alter Bridge has the better sound ill give you that. But considering achievements Creed is deff the better band

Caught Springsteen for the first time last night up in Hartford. The Boss puts on a hell of a show. Solid 2 and a 1/2 hours. He didn't get to the hits till later, but man he's great with a crowd. I can see why so many people recommend his shows. You know how there are certain songs that always stand out in your mind when you hear them live? Thunder Road is on that list for me now.

Anyone heading to NYC for the Bouncing Souls and 7 Seconds tomorrow night?

In my household, I'm sort of like "Mr. New Jersey," but yet I have never seen The Boss! I'm not a huge fan or anything, but I can appreciate his body of work. I gotta go see him at least once in my life -- hopefully sooner rather than later.

Bouncing Souls put on a hell of a set tonight. They make me proud every time I see them. I think this has to be at least the 29th time I've seen them in the last 3 years. UGH. Fan-freakin-tastic. I also have to say Lifetime did pretty well since the last time I saw them. They seemed better put together this time.
