My year in concerts ended last week with The National at Beacon Theater. Second row. In-fvcking-credible. Got great video of them doing Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks acoustic, with no microphones, a giant singalong. I was so close it picked up Matt (the singer)'s voice anyway.

Cool I'm not really all that familiar with them, I'm mainly going to see Iced Earth though I'm not a big fan of their new CD and I'm not so sure about the new singer, but I figure this show is cheap enough that it's worth it anyway, especially since I can easily drive there without having to worry about paying for a train ticket to New York. I did listen to a few songs by Symphony X years ago and thought they were alright. I might be more into their style now though.

Did anyone try to get Bruce Springsteen tickets today? I've never seen him before and would like to see him at least once. Five shows went on sale today, two at the Izod Center, two at MSG, and one at the Rock -- it will be his first time playing there. I tried to buy tix for either Izod or the Rock but by the time I got through on TM, nothing was left. I couldn't even get through on TM for over an hour.

Yeah, a lot of people reported the same thing. It happens anytime NJ/NY Bruce tickets go on sale - Ticketmaster just can't handle the demand between the actual fans and the scalper bots.

I didn't even bother - as bad as I want to see him (I, too, have yet to see him live), I just don't have the money right now.

Scalper bots? I don't know anything about them, but they sound nefarious!

Seriously though, getting concert tickets at a reasonable price for decent seats at popular arena shows has become near impossible. One really has to be crafty and diligent.

saw Tool last night @ the CAA...

the opener (YOB) were seriously awful. Psychedelic Sludge Metal... name says it all. Just noise with bass..

Tool came on around 9 and they are one damn good live band, seriously. Love them live. Played tons of awesome songs (Most off of AEnima and Lateralus, and a few off Opiate/Undertow)
(Being a Drummer) i am always Mesmerized by Danny Careys drumming, just... INSANE

My only gripe is too much jamming/ambient noises... but that was a total of 15 minutes throughout the hour and 45 minute set

Would definitely see them again

going back to CAA (yeah yeah whatever) for the 2nd time since the Devils moved... im glad we are NO longer there.
The Concourse is just horrible. Too many people, the lines are insane. wow im happy we're at The Rock
The ONLY redeeming quality are the upper seats at the CAA are better than the rocks (Leg room people, leg room)

Man Primus was awesome last night. They played at Gramercy Theatre, which was probably the smallest concert venue I've ever been to. It was cool to see a prominent band like Primus at such an intimate venue. Doors didn't open until 9 and I got there a little after 7, so I was able to get a spot right up on the barricade in front of the stage. The vocals sounded like they weren't loud enough, at least where I was, but it was still a great show. In case there are other Primus fans on this site, here is the setlist they played...

Set 1:
To Defy the Laws of Tradition
Fisticuffs
Moron TV
Frizzle Fry
Eternal Consumption Engine
The Toys Go Winding Down
Tommy the Cat

Set 2:
Prelude to a Crawl
Hennepin Crawler
Golden Boy
Mr. Knowitall
Seas of Cheese
Jilly's on Smack
The Pressman
Wynona's Big Brown Beaver
Bob
My Name Is Mud

Encore:
Lee Van Cleef
John the Fisherman

It sounds like that Primus show was pretty cool. Some of my friends used to be big into them. I only know a few of their songs, but I bet I would've enjoyed the show, had I went.

I know there are some Metallica fans on here. In case anyone didn't hear about it, they will be headlining a weekend outdoor festival in Atlantic City in June. On one night, they'll play the "Black Album" in its entirety; the other night, they'll play "Ride the Lightning" in its entirety.

I used to be a huge Metallica fan in my teenage years. I'm seriously considering going to this - the lineup is incredible, and not at all what I would expect out of a Metallica-curated festival.

Maiden usually keeps its tix at a respectable price.

I'll be going to Ghost / Opeth / Mastodon in Philly (Boo!!) April 9th, and Clutch on April 17th at Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg PA. It's a very small venue, just perfect for a Clutch show!!

@Microwavepizza, that Tool show was my 6th.. They get infinitely better each time I've seen them... (With the exception of the interlude during 'Sober.. Did not like that...)'

I'm going to the first night of Bamboozle. Which is weird because of the three, it's by far the weakest day. I guess I'll sit on the beach and laugh at Skrillex fans or something.
