Convince me to spend $40 in travel + concert fees to go see Toro y Moi tonight.
Seeing Death Grips in June in Vancouver ! Im sure it will be awesome as long as they show up.
Also Timber Timbre on the 21st of this fair month of May. ive seen videoes of them play and theyre spot on.
Saw Riff Raff recently... pretty terrible. He was entertaining, but only played for 30 minutes and came on 3 hours late.
lil B twice in the last year. Gave me his jacket and hes cool as hell. great, positive, funny show. and he has better live flow than most 'real' rappers ive ever seen
haven't seen too much lately, i went to one of those sleep concerts that robert rich has last month but nothing really after that.
tomorrow i'm seeing dälek, then later this month i'll see phill niblock, keiji haino (maybe), jon hassell, and arthur brown.

Andrew Jackson Jihad and Jeff Rosenstock
Thee Oh Sees yesterday
Going to see:
I wanted to go to FYF this year but it's too damn expensive and has shit headliners.
>$109 for a two day festival with a great lineup
cuck on friend
Yeah, I pretty much answered my own question looking back. Plus driving to Detroit can be fucking boring and I don't feel like making the trek.
Still sore I missed it. Have yet to see any Primus show of any kind. Hopefully next time. Doesn't help that even when they're within 100 mi. of me, shows are expensive as fuck.
just saw agent orange, shlohmo, and liturgy last week. coming up:
5/10 - ministry
5/15 - russian circlesss (cult of luna was supposed to play too but they fucked up)
5/20 - gbh

still debating on a few other shows, but i have time to figure it out. anyone heading my way?
What I have planned so far for the year
>Hot Chip DJ set
>Swans/Slaves/Thurston Moore Band/Belle and Sebastian/Flaming Lips
>De la Soul/Pete Rock
>Kendrick Lamar/Fidlar/Run the Jewels/American Football/Tyler the Creator/Slaves/Jamie XX/Refused/Gojira/Mastodon/Ho99o9/Ghost/Alvvays/Flatbush Zombies/Ratking
>Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats

Missed Wire last week and can't afford the Pop Group for next week too, shame really.
my friend's trying to convince me to go to Fidlar and Metz with him in St. Louis, i think they're ok enough, anyone know how they are live?
also bonnaroo and trying to get tix for death grips in chicago
Seen nothing live so far this year. Might see Little Dragon and Suuns over the next month and a bit but kinda undecided on those.
Sled Island festival at the end of June is going to be awesome though. Don't know the entire schedule but really hoping to see Godspeed, Ben Frost, Lightning Bolt, Mdou Moctar, Oxbow, Iceage, Matana Roberts, and maybe son lux.
>Andrew Jackson Jihad with Jeff Rosenstock and some shitty Aussie band
>Neutral Milk Hotel with Circulatory System
>Father John Misty
Highlights were definitely Neutral Milk Hotel with Circulatory System and Lightning Bolt, awesome shows and got to meet members of all three bands after the shows
Skate and Surf festival next weekend. Mostly going to see Thrice.
Then Rush end of June
and Incubus/deaftones/Death From Above 1979 in August
I saw Modest Mouse a month ago, I didn't know much of their stuff and expected it to be alright, but it was actually fantastic.
I saw The Tragically Hip that same weekend and that also surprised me. Quality Canadacore.
pic was taken from here http://www.ocweekly.com/slideshow/lightning-bolt-the-constellation-room-42134809/
and yea the concert was amazing. I'm the person chippendale gave his stick to mid-set
I'm seeing Death Cab For Cutie with the Antlers in Portland this Saturday so that should be fun. So far the concerts i have lined up are:
>DCFC w/ Antlers on 5/9
>Boston Calling on 5/22 to 5/24
>Fireworks w/ Sorority Noise on 5/30
>Flume on 6/23
>Modest Mouse on 7/23
>DCFC again w/ Explosions In The Sky on 9/11
>Boston Calling again on 9/25 to 9/27(bought presale pass and only confirmed artists are Alt J and Hozier so far)
Seeing Sufjan and Death Grips in Seattle in June.
I made the mistakes of buying three sufjan tickets. One for a friend of mine who is a girl, and I thought I could find a qt girl to bring with me but I realized it would just be awkward. So, I'm thinking about just bringing another girl I know. I don't know. It might be weird. I'm buying two next time.
In February I saw Behemoth live, Best show of the year so far. Last weekend I saw Dance Gavin Dance and Polyphia at a shit venue and with 8 other shitty bands, DGD also sucked so I left a few songs in.
My next concert is Between the Buried and Me with Animals as Leaders in August.
I might go see pic related as well.
those two are gonna be some cringey performances, I'm hoping they pull something out of their ass (hoping in vain for Sunn since they're supposedly doing some US festivals in the fall )
Just got back from the NMH concert, it was pretty fucking great. At first I thought the crowd wasn't having much fun until we kept cheering for like 10 minutes until they came back and played a 30+ minute encore.
I want to go, but the price is bugging me. It's not too expensive for me, but it's such a huge bump up from last year that I don't feel like I can justify it. That and it's a 6 hour drive away and I might end up going alone.
But that is a damn good line-up.
Oh, and as for concerts I'm going to/coming up: Neutral Milk Hotel on 6/11
That's it. Nothin' decent comes through Sacramento and I can't ever justify driving down to San Francisco for anything.
I know you mean man....when he said something like "this song is dedicated to my grandmother and to anyone in your life you care about" i got major feels
But of fucking course his grandma lives in florida lol
Right lol? Every old person lives in Florida. But damn man... That was just a great concert, the only downsides were the opening, and that guy who kept shouting "Now I can fucking die happy! I fucking love you!"
I wasn't able to hear that guy but im guilty of getting excited and yelling "We love you Jeff!" which is something ive never done before in a concert lol
Also Julian has some great saw playing skills
I always wondered what made that sound in all those NMH tracks
Oh shit dude, you were in the same section as me. And when I saw him pick up the saw I was just thinking "There's no way..." And he started playing it, and just wow. I'm in the same boat as you, never knew that was how they made all the sounds.
Was gonna see Earl Sweatshirt last week but he cancelled and rescheduled to august. Not sure anymore.
Also really wanting to see Toro y Moi in ATL next Thursday. Waiting to see what happens to the resale value of those sold out Death Grips tickets, and I might go to Raurfest just because I listened to Indigo Child yesterday and I was like you know what this is alright
>4/24 Sufjan Stevens
>4/29 The Replacements
>7/6 Fucked Up
>Pitchfork Music Fest
>7/24 Titus Andronicus
Titus Andronicus has me the most pumped. I have a few Band+Venue combinations that I've been wanting to see and Titus Andronicus @ Shea Stadium is one of those combos.
Orchestra? No. I was on the right side of the stairs in the balcony section. My side was sadly kind of dead with the staff flashing lights in our faces lol.
Don't want to sound like a faggot, but do you have a steam or something?
It was what they called the ground seats. Yeah there were tons of staff members with flashlights too lol and a lot of people getting up and leaving and coming back a ton too in the beginning which got annoying also my steam is http://steamcommunity.com//id/professorsmileyz/
Circa Survive, Balance and Composure, CHON
Nothing. NMH sold out before I got tickets, Brand New/Manchester Orchestra sold out before I got tickets, and nothing else is coming here any time soon.
Saw Neutral Milk Hotel in April. Julian was so hyped up he was spinning in circles for the entire performance. I got to hear them play Gardenhead which is my favorite song from them but I'm sad they didn't do anything like Oh Sister.
Planning on seeing of Montreal in early June. However I haven't reserved or bought tickets so I'm banking on getting them at the door on the day of the show. Going to show up like 2-3 hours early because I really want to see them.
