The last concert I was at, was the Chris Tomlin & Big Daddy Weave concert at FunFest back in July. Chris Tomlin portion of the concert was some of the most powerful worship 've ever experienced, BDW was great as well.

Last one as of now was Cattle Decapitation's offdate up in Burlington, VT. Been friends with Josh and Dave for a while now, so it was nice to actually see them again. The best part, however, was seeing them get a full-length set in front of a grateful audience, even if they did fail to play anything off of The Harvest Floor.

I just got back from seeing Pet Shop Boys at House of Blues in Boston. It was a great show and a nice mix of classic and new music. I've been trying to see them for years and my schedule (or theirs in the case of the canceled show at the Hollywood Bowl that I had tickets for) just never worked out so it was great to finally get to see them live.

On Thursday, I made my way to Toronto to check out Scorpion Child. In support were Mothership, Gypsyhawk, Wilson and Kadavar. The entire night was fan-freaking-tastic. The crowd was VERY small (100 people tops) which made for a very intimate feeling. It was a long show, but it was fully worth it.

 

The next day, I drove back to Toronto for Nine Inch Nails in front of a crowd much bigger than 100 people. They always put on a great show and still have one of the best light packages I've ever seen. Fully worth the money.

 

Here are some photos from the shows!

Saw Revocation at some random club in Seabrook. Show tanked because it was barely promoted, but it was a ton of fun anyways. Top-notch performance as expected, and Dave is still one of the best guitarists in New England. I was also regaled with tales from Phil about Dan and a certain item that he bought at a sex shop while they were on the Summer Slaughter Tour, but that's a different matter entirely.

Last concert I was in the audience was due to a random last minute extra ticket some friends had to see Lady Gaga -I wasn't sure it would be my crowd, but her show was very entertaining especially her freaking amazing piano set...

 

Last concert I was backstage was a big festival over the summer meeting Switchfoot, Audio Adrenaline, Newsboys, Family Force 5, We As Human, Skillet, etc...I was part of the fireworks crew who put up the finale choreographed to Skillet's performance. Man they are sweet especially the beautiful violin player.

Went to see 30 Seconds to Mars (6th or 7th time now) last Thursday in Toronto.

They put on a great show, but I'm getting increasingly annoyed that they are ignoring their older material. They performed no songs from their self titled album (their first CD) and only one song from A Beautiful Lie (their second CD).

Just got back from one of the Blink 182 10th anniversary shows for the untitled album. They still sound great live, though their energy on stage has been toned down. Travis Barker still kills it though.

^ Travis Barker is extremely overrated IMO. Danny Carey, Neil Peart, Mike Mangini, Mike Portnoy, Dave Lombardo, among others blow him out of the water. He's a great drummer, but I think he's overrated.

 

Halestorm and Redlight King are coming to the Ram's Head Club in Baltimore(yuck) next month and I would really like to go, but I wouldn't be able to get in because of my age. I'd be 18 when they come and some clubs let 18-year-olds in, but my mom says you have to be 21 to get into that specific club. I've never been to a concert, and as a music aficionado I think that's sad.

Rivers of Nihil, Abiotic, Exhumed, and Dying Fetus at the Palladium on Halloween. Sound was as retarded as usual (gotta love all-kick mixes, which is 99% of what you find at the Palladium), but everyone did amazing, even Abiotic, whose music is awful (they do have a very good bassist, I'll give 'em that). Other than that, Rivers killed, Exhumed was a rowdy, barely-controlled good time complete with Philthy emptying a zombie mask full of red-dyed booze into the crowd and a final third that consisted of the band getting into mock-glam getups and cracking jokes about "this song is about what covers the groupies at the end of the night", and Fetus delivered a fantastic set full of classics and always seemed to have the right song for the moment. Speaking of Fetus, Trey was particularly excellent, locking right in with his trademark combo of ridiculous speed and monster grooves. Kid's one of the reasons why I decided to start playing drums in the first place, and he never disappoints.

Uhm…of course he doesn't compare to that list. Those are some of the greatest drummers of all time and/or the modern era. Doesn't change the fact Travis Barker still has great "chops."

Barker's good for his genre and has compelled many kids to pick up a kit and a pair of sticks and start bashing away, I'll give him that. I guess that kinda applies to Joey Jordison as well, though Jordison is sloppy as hell and has a serious lack of creativity in spite of his overly large setup. Still, he's at least gotten plenty of kids to try drums, though he never did anything for me (I always was into people like George Kollias, John Longstreth, Pete Sandoval, and David McGraw and wasn't overly impressed by him even when I cared about Slipknot, which was back around when I was thirteen or so).

It's been about a month since the show, but I saw Kishi Bashi, Fancy Colors and Tin Cup Prophette a few weeks ago. Best show I've ever been to. Kishi Bashi is a musical genius, and he and his band know how to put on a damn good show. There was dancing, there was shredding on a violin, there was clapping and singing along, and towards the end, he was able to get a room full of nearly 600 people to be completely silent for two of his most intimate songs. It was incredible. If he's ever playing in your area, I highly recommend going to see him.
