DEATH GRIPS PRESALE HYPE
Just bought my tix for the Detroit show. Check Live Nation's Twitter for the pw for your show (they're probably all the same though).
Nothing recent, but my upcoming schedule:
27 - Tycho
30 - Benjamin Booker
18 - Lightning Bolt
6 - Toro y Moi
18 - Tame Impala w/ Mini Mansions
3 - Alabama Shakes w/ Father John Misty
4 - Temples (?)
7 - Purity Ring
1 - McRide & The Deaf Grapes
1 - The Kills
Magma (got an extra ticket if any anon maybe wants to go in the Portland area)
Father John Misty
Lightning Bolt (They are opening for Liturgy as well so I am pry gonna pass on this)
Melt Banana w/ Torche
Nice lineup. Don't pass on seeing Lightning Bolt headline in favor of seeing them support.
>implying people don't browse regardless
>implying I didn't start this thread last night at prime time and had the same problems
Just got back from sxsw
>heems and kool ad perform at someones house
>pharmakon, ukiah drag, and uniform play on a bridge at 3 in the morning
>dj windows 98 (win butler)
going to see
>neutral milk hotel
>clark & nosaj thing
To be completely honest I'm not familiar with Lightning Bolt too much, but their show is after the Liturgy show, so if I enjoy their set enough I will definitely attend their show.
I really enjoy these threads because everyone has been going to the same concert events for over six years apparently. I have had the misfortune of going to a /mu/ approved recital and it was all nerds in death grips shirts talking about NMH
I'm going to Pitchfork this year
It's not the most amazing lineup, but I'm excited to see Iceage, Ought, and Vietcong. I'll probably see a bunch of shows, depends on what my friends are going to
Seeing Dad's tonight, Columbus. Any /mu/tants going?
>tfw I only go to concerts so I can grope on all the qt butts undetected in crowds
Don't even like half the bands.
Cheap & crowded? I'll be there regardless.
i drove over from florida/not 21/excluding acts I didn't care about/had to leave saturday to make it back in time for work/organized it a week before/first sxsw
I only paid for one show tho and had a really good time. This was kind of a spur of the moment thing with friends. Now that I know how it works, next year I will be way more prepared and maximize my time there : )
nope I fucking wish, I really could have gotten one but I hung around and was trying to meet some of the artists and by the time i got there they were out
go see sophie and ag cook
I can't make it this year I realized, I'd rather save to buy a car so I'm waiting til 3 day passes sell out so I can sell mine. Its a cool fest and chicago is a cool city if you haven't been before. Had a great time last year.
Yeah, sophomore. It'd probably be a bad idea anyway, I've got a midterm tomorrow and a bunch of other stuff I should work on
I haven't been a show to a while, the last one honestly might have been The Pizza Underground, and that was back in December
I hope danny brown tours again soon. If there is one artist I will never get tired of seeing, its that man. I've seen him like 5 times already and I can't wait to see him again goddammit.
Went to South By So What in Grand Prairie, Texas.
Awesome as fuck. Title Fight, Circa Survive, La Dispute, Chon, and Self Defense Family were the shit. Frank Iero's solo project was cool, and I got to see Hawthorne Heights play Ohio is For Lovers (which was really the only song I cared about). They had tasty gyros, everyone was gettin high, life was great.
The absolute worst. The only bands I was into were Enter Shikari, Chiodos, and Dance Gavin Dance. There were a bunch of metalcore fuckboys and I got punched by one while Enter Shikari played. The three headlining bands were Atilla, Memphis May Fire, and Motionless in White, and they were so bad that me and my friend just sat on the bleachers eating funnel cake while they played.
Way better than day 2, not quite as good as day 1. Norma Jean was fucking sick, but I rolled my ankle in the middle of their set and couldn't really dance the rest of the day, but luckily a merch guy hooked me up with a pain pill. Code Orange and Power Trip were fucking awesome, After the Burial was fun, Suicide Silence was okay, Emmure was shit, but Hatebreed was a LOT more fun than I anticipated.
Sufjan Stevens with my sis
Rush with my dad
Death Grips on sale for Trees tomorrow, getting those ASAP
Might be seeing Yellowcard and Finch, but prolly not
Reminds me as well. First time I saw AJJ they had two bands called either Cheap Girls or Hard Girls and Dogbreath. Dogbreath wasn't terrible, just kinda boring, but the whatever girls fucking blew. It was like they were trying to sound like Dinosaur Jr except without any of the energy.
haha I just met someone the other day who was talking about how they saw Dogbreath Opening for AJJ.
We then listened to one of their records and reminded me of old school emo, but a bit poppier. Wasn't too bad.
I live quite far from London and it's dangerously close to my uni exam period but i'm seeing Ben Frost/Laurel Halo in London the night before, an extra day can't hurt
Detroit. Based in Toledo though, but no one fucking comes to Toledo ever.
Yeah they weren't bad, just kinda boring for me. I remember them getting better as the show went on. They seemed pretty nervous, especially the bassist. I was rooting for them though, and the crowd did come around in support.
Haven't had much time to go to shows this year but at the same time there isn't much happening.
Drive Like Jehu
Neutral Milk Hotel
FYF Fest, depends but most likely I'll go since they usually have a pretty good lineup
Going to see Primus in a few months.
If they play a lot of tunes from the Chocolate Factory, it's probably less energetic than the previous time, but gonna the mood will still be great. Good time guaranteed.
Might have moved my ass for GY!BE but it's already sold out. Not much good stuff that I know of will pass through my city in the next months, dunno what I'll do.
>Neutral Milk Hotel is coming to my college
i fucking hate you so much please don't be that guy you fucking weirdo jesus christ
i can only take so much honesty on 4chan don't fucking grab girls asses at shows you fucking loser
shows are supposed to be a special place where people can forget about their bullshit for 45 minutes but some creeps like you want to spoil that
girls get fucking casually raped at festivals and shit and its really fucking shitty please don't do it man :-/
Recent: Circa Survive, Balance and Composure, CHON
I had never heard of CHON before, but they had a pretty good set. Crowd really dug it.
Balance and Composure is kinda boring live, but the crowd goes crazy for them, so it was fun.
Circa Survive was really great. One of the best performances I've seen. It was a sold out show, so the venue was packed and the crowd was really into it, which always makes the show better.
Upcoming: nothing, because my city sucks balls.
Everyone says he's really good live but when I saw him he was fucking terrible. He came out super shitfaced and stumbling. He just about walked off stage after his mic was unplugged from all his jumping around and shit. There was also zero crowd interaction unless you had a vagina and no shirt on. I'll probably see him in the future and hope that that show was a fluke but if not then I'm going to quit wasting my money.
>General reviews say he's great live
>One bad experience
>Never again ugh he sucks
You remind me of those people who review restaurants negatively because the first time they went it was less than stellar.
Sounds like you caught him on a really off night. Is that indicative of the whole? I'd say absolutely not. Go to another show.
I might sound snobbish but if I pay to see an artist I'm putting faith in them that they'll give me a good show. I'm certainly not entitled to that but I don't think it's wrong for me to be upset when I get a shitshow of a performance.
>never again ugh he sucks
I didn't say that. In fact, I said almost the exact opposite (read: "I'll probably see him in the future"). If he's shit again though, then I'd throw in the towel.
Yeah I went back and read it closer and I agree. You didn't totally come off like that.
And while I agree that when you pay to see an artist you should receive adequate compensation, sometimes people just have off nights. This one sounded like it was way more than an off night though, so that sucks. Hopefully he's up to par next time you see him.
P4k accidentally leaked the schedule on their site when they posted the lineup and a few people grabbed it. Here it is, but be aware that it will probably change:
Based off of what 2 people have told me, I would assume not. I haven't seen MBV, but I saw Swans and it was the loudest show I've ever been to, but it still wasn't as loud as they described MBV to me.
I didn't think MBV was as loud as advertised, but it's the only time I've ever felt disoriented after a show. That holocaust section, no matter how much I expected it/anticipated it, broke me. I thought I was hearing voices coming from the PA that clearly weren't there, and once the music came back to rhythm to end the song, it felt like being punched in the face.
Also, rate my concert history. Going to see Ride, Wire, Primal Scream, Jesus and Mary Chain, Nothing, and Spiritualized by the end of summer.
I personally wouldnt have wanted to stand through any of their previous gigs i've been to without earplugs. It would be uncomftable to say the least. Even if you found MBV fine, for the sake of your ears, I would get some ear plugs for gigs in general.
>Monday 20 April 2015

The current bands I am currently thinking about seeing, will probably buy tickets closer to the time.
#Gigging alone L O N D O N
Wreck & Reference + So Stressed in a basement
Weedeater + King Parrot
Torche + Melt Banana
Otherwise just went to Deerhoof + of Montreal a week or two ago. Deerhoof was goddang amazing, but of Montreal was kinda boring.
Saw Father Murphy (Flenser artist) a couple nights ago in a basement, it was pretty cool. I wish they would've used a better PA, the one at the house was pretty 'eehhh'.
Coincidence. The mid 20th century was insanely active, by the same token, the last ten years have been insanely inactive in terms of threats to Florida. Longest hurricane drought (ten years) in recorded state history.
Hope it continues so it doesn't interfere with my shows :^)
