August 5, Chi-Town House of Blues, Tokio Hotel, MXMS, and Victorian Halls Tokio Hotel is a dance-emo rock band that was popular like 5 years ago or something. MXMS is a "funeral pop" band that blew my mind away. So good Victorian Halls is a local alternative-y kinda band that were pretty good. It was cool to because the members of MXMS hung out after the show and I met them, and it was pretty cool. I hope all three bands get noticed in the near future

Symphony X and Overkill in Worcester, AKA the true Jersey boys. Symphony X was fantastic and Michael Romeo is absolutely unreal live; his playing HAS to be seen to be believed. Probably the most impressive live guitarist I've ever seen. The rest of the band was similarly on-point; my only complaint was that they devoted a little too much of the setlist to Underworld and Paradise Lost and not enough to their other albums. "Iconoclast" was a great choice for an encore, however. As for Overkill, they blew the roof off of the place like they're famous for, and Bobby Blitz's choice to insult the Red Sox before proclaiming that he had no love for the Yankees either elicited more than a few laughs. They had a much more balanced setlist, with all of the hits, a good balance of new and old, and even a couple deeper cuts. $27.50 well spent.

I went to ProgPower a few weeks ago, and it was amazing, as always. Highlights were Anathema, Riverside, Royal Hunt, and Angra. I've been to everyone of these but the third, and am really looking forward to next year's festival. The headliners are Fates Warning (with the original line up playing all of Awaken The Guardian) and The Devin Townsend Project.

Not too into TDTP (or, really, anything that the man has ever done), but Fates Warning with Arch plus Scar Symmetry (because I am a HUGE Per Nilsson fanboy and he makes me lament my total lack of ability as a guitarist) are making the hit on my credit card look like a worthy sacrifice.

Kraftwerk was AMAZING Friday night in Austin (one of only 12 stops on the US tour).

 

Reminder: the concert was in 3D, so that's why even tho our seats were great, some of the backgrounds look fuzzy (they were 3D image

It's not technically a concert, but I attended the Burning Man festival out in Black Rock City, NV this year. It was my first burn and it was by FAR the most spiritually moving, enlightening, extreme, and profound experience I've ever had. It gave me an entirely new outlook and perspective on life in the most positive way. Left me utterly speechless. Would LOVE to know if anyone on here has been before or who goes every year. Regardless, here are some photos from this years event. Sorry if it's a lot, but I hope you enjoy!

… And then after the man exploded in a gigantic spectacle of fireworks, explosions, and flames

… But shortly after spreading my wings I found myself caught in a complete white out sandstorm

1 of the most trippy and amazing art installations I've ever encountered. The LED lights shifted and changed patterns and colors all while synchronized to the music that was playing around us. Photo Credit: Scott London

The Temple of Promise. The spiritual and emotional center of the city. It would not be uncommon to walk through here and see other people crying or find yourself in tears reading all the messages inscribed into the walls and seeing all the shrines of lost loved ones people had set up.

A very thought provoking art piece I encountered out on the playa.

The night of the Burn when all 70,000 of us gathered around the man in a spectacle that gives the event its very name.

Two Saturdays ago I saw Parkway Drive at the Fillmore in Silver Spring MD in support of their new "IRE" album with Miss May I, Thy Art Is Murder, and In Hearts Awake. Amazing show, non stop moshing and crowdsurfing! Parkway even said we were the rowdiest crowd out of all the shows they've playing on the tour so far so that great to hear. Australia got some great bands!

I went to so see Stevie Wonder's final concert for the "Songs In The Key Of Life Performance" Tour at Madison Square Garden last Tuesday. He performed that entire album plus a few of his other hits. I unfortunately had to leave early, but what I was able to see was amazing!

^Couldn't agree more about Red Rocks. I've heard so many great things about that venue from some of my favorite artists who've preformed there. I'd love to catch at least one show there at some point.

Trans Siberian Orchestra earlier this month. We had fairly close floor seats and the show was phenomenal, even though I'd already watched the TV movie for the story they're touring this year. The screens, lights and pyro were all amazing; I'm a huge fan of fireworks, but had never seen an "explosions and fire" band before, so this set the bar high. The performers slayed "In the Hall of the Mountain King" (or whatever their rendition of it is called) and they also played a tantalizing bluesy, Zeppelinesque original song which I'll need to look up. I will definitely be seeing them again.

I just saw them last night at the Q in Cleveland. Since that's two shows in three months, it will be a while before I can go again. And TSO always puts on quite a show. Saw them last year for The Christmas Attic too.

Umm...it was the B-52s on New Year's Eve, on some blocked-off street in downtown Houston. Now, I've seen some shows that People Who Are Not Me might deem inexplicable and/or embarrassing, but this easily takes the cake. The male singer sounded like, I don't know, the Wiggles, or a five-year-old trying to use a funny voice. The female singer could've fit into an angry punk band. There were maybe 5 very drunk people dancing, and everyone else was "dancing" just to keep warm. The show was followed, after a painfully awkward delay, by the most pathetic fireworks display ever; I should've taken it as a warning when the guy on TV earlier was boasting that they could also be set off indoors.

 

I will concede that the music was catchy and energetic, and I appreciated the rockabilly and surf influence on some songs. It was a free show, so probably didn't attract as high a proportion of "fans" as many typical concerts, and the TV station host was encouraging people to post comments on Twitter, instigating a barrage of hilariously sarcastic remarks. Also, apparently the TV news coverage was even more of a trainwreck than the actual event. As for said event, I thought it was fine; it seemed well-attended, but not overcrowded, and the atmosphere was laid-back. The crowd wasn't overly drunken, it was family-friendly without being overrun by children, and there were several activities included. Earlier, I sampled a jazz trio and a Broadway singalong inside a well-appointed theater, and an outdoor DJ dance party before the concert. Overall, I could've done way worse for NYE.

My last concert was all the way back in February 2015 xD

 

Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish. RBF is one of my favorite bands so I naturally loved them, but I never listened to Less Than Jake before then but they killed it! I now have a bunch of their songs on my phone

 

The next concert I plan to attend is Melt Banana, Napalm Death, and The Melvins when they come to The Orpheum in Tampa in April
