Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

I have no idea who they were but there was a guy sitting on the floor with a laptop making this building pounding noise that kept getting more and more intense for like 20 minutes and when it peaked it suddenly morphed into a big band orchestra song and 2 or 3 dancers with big masks on shaped like houses came onto stage from nowhere and did a wonderful dance routine.

Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

A punk band put together by music teachers at the college I went to. They kind of did it as a joke.

They did like five shows but they ripped everyone's heads off. People who saw still talk about it 19 years later.

Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

I saw Boredoms at a sold out show in Chicago eleven years ago, and it still remains my favorite. I saw them again in Japan, but it wasn't the same as the first time. No other show has ever matched it.

Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

I'm not really into live shows, but several years ago I saw Meat Beat Manifesto live in Chicago and it was really great!

The music was very bassy and full and a mix of (then) new and old tracks.
There was a psychedelic video show in sync with the music and it was EXTREMELY TRIPPY.

I was standing right behind the front of house mixing desk in the middle of the audience area, and there was good stereo sound. There was also a live drummer on stage.

A lot of people were just so mezmerised by the videos that they didn't even dance, they just stood there thunderstruck. But some people did dance too.

I'm glad I went. If they ever come to my town, I'd consider seeing them. They are pros and Jack Dangers is still keeping up in the Electronic Music world.

Massive Attack at Hultsfred sweden, was one of my first major concerts and I loved them.

And this swe reggae artist Syster Sol, not a huge fan of her songs, they are ok, but she tore it up live.

Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

I have to say Coachella in 2011. With 80 bands over 3 days on a beautiful polo field with gorgeous night sunsets. I saw Trentemoller and many other favorites. The highlight was Arcade Fire...the twilight...good general feeling of the crowd and the passion of the band. This is one of the first times they headlined.

Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

Gerald Spaits group in Kansas City about 5 months ago. I had just gotten back from Paris where we saw Peter Erskine and Spaits blew them out of the water. For some reason Kansas City is blowing up for jazz music. No frills no electronica no fusion no cliche hard bop no endless solos no warhorse standards just new melodies, polytonality, dynamics, passion... I'm at a loss to explain it. Why here...

Probably Hocico. They played at Fallout in Richmond VA. No real stage, just speakers on the ground dividing them from the crowd. Was pretty damn intense.

The movie "Whiplash" no doubt played a part in making it cool "again"..but it's always been cool music..just not always in the mainstream..and things like that movie bring it to the front of the public mind for a while. Chances are it will die down again and be replaced by something else.

Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

I might have just gone to the worst concert ever in my life. A friend of mine wanted to go see a Led Zeppelin tribute band. I'm no longer a huge classic rock fan, but he bought the ticket and was going to be in my neck of the woods anyway so I said I would go. I expected the theatrics and costumes to be unbearably cheesey. I kept my mouth shut through about 4 songs even though it was indeed unbearbly cheesey. The mix was horrid, the high end was unbearable. Beginning of the 5th song my friend turns to me and says "This is so fucking lame, I can't stand it...also I've already got a headache from the shit sound, lets go get drunk at karaoke instead."

First time I ever walked out of a concert that shortly after it started. Maybe twenty minutes.

EDIT: Also the dumbass bartender asked me what year my buddy was born. When he said 1984 the dumbass actually said, "Well you aren't old enough to drink!" Wow...just wow...

Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

La Cololonie de Vacance. That's four bands (Marvin, Papier Tigre, Pneu and Electric Electric) playing in the same time at each side of the concert hall, with the crowd in the middle. They play Math Rock and Stoner, some songs one band at a time, some others all together. That was totally insane.

Re: Best concert you've ever been to?

Saw the Beasty Boys on my first festival ever when I was like 16. That was pretty awesome.
Other than that I'd say Orbital was pretty good. I was tripping my balls off on shrooms and it was totally awesome!
Bonobo was also pretty good. He had a band and singer with him.
