A thread about live shows and no one mentions Andrew W.K.?  For shame!

He put on one of the best shows I've ever seen and he was in a damn wheelchair!

Saw him once a long long time ago back when whatever his first single was that made him popular he was opening for Lost Prophets (i think) and there was a ton of people there but right after Andrew W.K. stopped playing like over 60% of the people left, thought it was pretty funny but they missed a good show afterwards.

You win on two levels, because you also like LostProphets.  I don't understand why they get so much hate, but I enjoy their music.

Hell yeah! The Menzingers are awesome.

I see the line-up every year and hate myself for being on the other side of the country. Maybe I'll make plans to go next year and then drag Topher along.

Menzingers fucking killed it tonight. the venue was this old house thats been converted to some kind of community center. the only punk venue ive ever been to with a fireplace and leather furniture. half the lights went out about halfway through the show so it was in this really dim room which gave the whole thing a really cool vibe. people walking by outside kept hearing the bands and stopping to try to see in the windows, but they were all fogged up. no free show for them.

Oh and if you like Paramore and want to hear a tiny Vermont band that sounds kind of like them with a worse singer check out my friend's band Listen to the Sky: http://www.myspace.com/listentotheskyvt
They're okay.

Sounds pretty damn awesome, just too bad that there is an ocean...

However I saw Rammstein last Friday and Hallelujah I have never seen a show lke this before. The effects were amazing! So much fire that you could feel the heat, and I was pretty far away since it was an open-air concert. On the other hand the music is not that great and there wasn't much communication between the band and the crowd, which is something that I really like about live shows!

Just imagine a guy riding a giant plastic penis and spraying white confetti over the crowd! :D

Quick question, Do you prefer floor shows, small venue stage shows, out door shows/festivals, or arena shows?

Personally I enjoy floor shows and small venue stuff because it's so much more intimate. Festivals are ok, and I fucking hate arena shows.

If i had to pick one it would be small venues simply because i worked at a small venue for over 5 years and those were the best times of my life met so many awesome people and bands it was quite an experience. I dont mind floor shows but only if it is a local/semi-local show where i know a lot of people that are attending.

I love floor shows and small venues. As for arena shows and festivals I only go if I get floor tickets or if they're general admission since I love to be up next to the stage. Most of my concerts I go to that are not by my friend's band are metal shows and I have to have floor/pit tickets unless its a huge act like Iron Maiden.
