A new concert thread for the new year, and now I've put it in the right sub-forum.

Mystlyfe has probably already gone to more concerts than the rest of us will for the whole year combined, so we should feel bad. I have a few tickets to upcoming shows, though.

    There are a number of upcoming concerts that I hope I get the opportunity to go to this year. Flipper and Onslaught are going to be near me next month. And then in April, the Buzzcocks and then later the Heritage Hunter Tour with Opeth, Mastodon, and Ghost. Which is an awesome lineup and I already missed Ghost once this year, so I hope I get to see them this time.

    Tomorrow I get to see Coldplay because I won tickets from KROQ (I live in LA county), so I'm pretty stoked even if it's going to be a smaller concert since it's for Jimmy Kimmel's Oscar Special.

    I'm also going to be seeing Young the Giant with Walk the Moon supporting in LA this Sunday, Airborne Toxic Event, Major Lazer, Mac Miller, and Chiddy Bang among others at UC Riverside next month, and Foster the People with Mayer Hawthorne supporting in LA at the end of June.

    Sounds like you, schiz, and I are going to be trading AWK stories in a little bit.

    So far this year I've seen Megadeth on Gigantour on January 28, Rise Against and A Day To Remember at Nassau Coliseum on February 3, and I'm gonna be seeing Enter Shikari on April 6 and Metallica at their Orion Music and More Fesitval on June 23-24. I also really wanna see blink-182 in May, but not sure if that's gonna happen.

    that sounds like a lot of money dude.



    I'm seeing Ceremony, Chelsea Wolfe, Nails, Deafheaven, Whirr, Marriages, and Duke Nukem Forever next week.

    so stoked.

    Only one concert so far this year, The Darkness w/ Foxy Shazam opening. Great show!

    Slow start to the year so far but it'll be picking up quickly from the looks of things. I've got a few coming up.

    Van Halen w/ Kool & The Gang two shows
    Iron Maiden w/ Alice Cooper two shows
    Bruce Springsteen

    Pretty pumped for all of them but especially Maiden with Cooper. Those two shows will be my 24th and 25th Maiden concert and with Cooper opening that'll bring that total to an even 30 :)

    Saw Mutemath in January, they blew up the planet, all other musicians playing this year realized they could not top the amazing show that happened that night.

    Managed to catch Lights tonight. Holy crap, can she sing.
    I mean, I never doubted it before (I love her softer, almost whispery voice on her albums), but live she just belted everything out and showed a range not shown on her albums. Definitely impressive. If anybody out there get's a chance to catch her live show, you must!

    I also managed to catch Protest the Hero back in January. Fourth time seeing them (second on a headlining tour), amazingly solid band live. And Rody's little stand up bits in between tracks are pretty funny.

    Mutemath is a stunningly good live band. Nuff said, pretty much.

    I saw The Goddamn Gallows, Larry and His Flask and The Reverend Horton Heat on monday. True great show as the Reverend always brings. Larry and His Flask put on a good show. The Goddamn Gallows were good, in fact at the moment this is my favorite tune. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSbeovIW1ss ... I can't even say how cool it is, check it out. If any of these bands play near you, do yourself a favor and check them out. If you have never experienced a Reverend Horton Heat show, it's definitely in the top 5 I've ever seen. They have been on Conan and once had a guest spot on The Drew Carey Show. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98NPEyAn0jM Reverend Horton Heat. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoNAfrdLxxA Larry and His Flask.

    I know most here don't have a positive view of the group, but I saw Odd Future tonight.

    Earl is back. It was his first live show ever.

    I saw Dropkick Murphys in Boston (technically Lowell) on St. Paddy's. I've seen them several times over the years but never at one of their St. Paddy's Boston shows. It definitely lived up to the hype, including having Mickey Ward sparring during their song about him called The Fighter. That's one bucket list item checked off.

    Puscifer, Carina Round, PF Experience & RHCP in June.

    I wanted to go to the St. Vincent show coming up later this month, but sadly I won't be able to as I've spent most of my monies on records.

    so far I've seen Andrew WK, Math: The Band (opened for AWK), Kid Savant/Shiloh/Promise You Family, and just got back from Divine Right/The Ropes/Ceremony/Raw Nerve. Upcoming is Clutch, Refused, Xiu Xiu, Zappa Plays Zappa, Joe Bonamassa, and hopefully, Abnormality. Also going to try my damnedest to see Johnathan Richman at Millennium Park for free, but I'll more than likely have to work.
