List the following in your review:
Date of your concert
Location of your seats
MUSE @MADISON SQUARE GARDEN
August 6, 8PM
Seats: First section above floor seating at the opposite end of the stage.
I took my gf to this show because she is a big fan of them. Although I am not too familiar with this band, I will say that they put on a hell of a show. The sound was awesome, each member of the band played a flawless set and their songs are very very powerful. If you are a fan of this band I reccomend seeing them live.
I saw MDC live on May 2nd.
It´s the best concert I´ve been to.
They played most songs from their legendary first lp.
I also bought a live bootleg with DRI from 1983-1984.
Red Hot Chili Peppers at the Wachovia Center last October. Our seats were fifth row along the side with a close diagonal view of the stage. They put on a hell of a show, running just about two hours. Not much between-song banter, but really that's not what counts. They played a good mix of old and new songs which was nice, including three from Blood Sugar Sex Magik. John and Flea were on top of their game as usual. The whole band really doesn't skimp on anything so if you have a chance, say f*ck it to the pricey ticket and go.
Edit - going to see O.A.R. 12th row next Saturday at the Tweeter Center in Camden
The Byham Theater, Pittsburgh
Tuesday July, 24th
1st row center, balcony
One of my favorite new bands. Absolutely one of the best shows I've seen. The sound was amazing. Cool light show. They played about 5 songs each, from their three albums. If you somewhat like the band, I would highly recommend it.
Below is the preview and review from the local paper.
TV On The Radio
Friday August 3
Mr. Smalls Theater
Last row, standing, center
A band that I've heard a lot of hype about. I got a comp, so I went. Mr. Smalls is an old church, converted into a theater. The bands play where the alter area would be. Very cool vibe there. It was sold-out. About 600 people. It was hot as hell, and impossible to move around. I just hung in the back by the bars.Not knowing any of their material, they put on a good show. The band has the Radiohead-type guitar thing goin on, which isn't a bad thing. The guitar players were doing some weird sh*t. The one guy had a wind chime hanging from his guitar neck. He would swing it and hit the drummers cymbols. The singer was energetic and had a strong voice. The band had a good presence on stage. I liked the show but it was hard to hear compared to the Interpol show. It might have something to do with me not knowing any material. If you dig the band, I'm sure you'd love it. It wasn't the best show I've been to, but still enjoyable. The singer and lead guitarist are actually from Pittsburgh.
Below are previews and reviews from the show. Enjoy.
Here is a link to Mr. Smalls. It is a reallly cool place. My old band actually recorded there, when it first opened. They since bought the church for concerts. They have a bunch of good shows.
Less than Jake and Reel Big Fish
Roseland Ballroom, NYC
Thursday July 19
I don't know what the following of these two bands is on here. I'm a much bigger fan of the older albums from both bands, but I still enjoy their newer releases. This was one of the best shows I've been to, however, despite a relatively young audience. This was the third time I'd seen Reel Big Fish in concert, and they continue to amaze me with their ability to get the crowd going. They played an Enter Sandman cover, which was really amusing, and made a couple other Metallica references during the show which were great. I've always been a huge Less Than Jake fan, but never had the chance to see them in concert. They put on a great show using a Price Is Right theme, including using the theme song as their entrance. They had 3 members of the audience come on stage to play games from the game show including Plinko and that spin the wheel thing, which chose the albums they played song off of. Unfortunately, one of the albums picked was their newest release, which was disappointing. They redeemed themselves with a great close and a great encore.
Also, one of the openers for the show was Streetlight Manifesto, another ska band I'd heard of but wasn't familiar with much of their stuff. They put on a pretty good show as well.
Basically, for people who used to enjoy these two bands, I'd still recommend trying to see them in concert as their live shows are still high quality even if the albums have declined.
I could go see that Interpol show every night for the rest of my life and never get bored. I am a hard-core fan, though. Do you know where they are playing in NYC? The Byham had about 800 seats. It is an old-style theater with great site lines and sound.

Family Values Tour
Saratoga Performing Arts Center
August 7th, 2007-1:30 to 11:00
This was both my first Family Values show, and first trip to SPAC, so I really wasn't too sure of what to expect, but we were lucky enough to have friends of friends up there to guide us around. After a brutal half hour plus wait to get inside, we got in around 2:15. The first band we saw was on the second stage, and that was Invitro, donning masks of tinfoil. Apparantly one of them was formerly in Snot, for what that's worth. After a game of Guitar Hero, we headed to the main stage to see Neurosonic, who woulda been decent if they shot their singer. Next Trivium was up, and they got things going in the right direction. Some good thrash from those boys although they're not the "Next Metallica" like some people are claiming. I then wandered for a bit, glancing at Through You and Twin Method on the second stage, neither impressed me a whole lot. Back to the main stage to see the supergroup Hellyeah! with Vinnie Paul and a couple of the guys from Mudvayne. They did not dissapoint, although suprisingly did not play anything from Pantera, which for some reason I thought they would. We then ran back to the second stage to see headliners Five Finger Death Punch. There I managed to get on the railing, safely in front of the craziest pits I saw all day. These guys put on a show equally as kickass to their album, which just dropped last tuesday, and were real cool both when we ran into them before the show and at the meet and greet. Check these guys out if you like metal. :evil:
Back to the Main stage where we had missed Flyleaf :bored: and they were now setting up for Atreyu. They ended up being better than I thought and actually played a pretty good set, including a cover of You Give Love a Bad Name. Then the first of the Co-headliners Evanescence took the stage. I decided to leave the hill and go lie down over by the now vacant 2nd stage, so i missed the first half of the set in favor of rest, but the 2nd half was good, and they actually sounded quite good all the way through. Also of note, Amy is damn hot, and really puts on a good show live. Finally it was time for Korn to rock SPAC. It was now dark and starting to rain, but that didnt take away from the set. The over pumped bass and drunk ass people running into us all through the set did however. Anyway, they put on a pretty good set, playing almost all the hits and some older stuff too, ending about quarter to 11. Let me just say Korn is a weird, creepy band to watch live, but puts on a pretty good show:approve:
So a solid show all the way through, check it out if it's coming by, 15.99 for lawn seats was well worth it for all the bands I saw.
Top 3 Bands:
Warped Tour started out originally started geared towards punk rockers about 12 years ago and has evolved into one of the best annual music tours every year. The name goes with the music and general frenzy type atmosphere. As of the past couple of years its mostly this new wave emo crap. I started going to this when I was 14 and since then have gone every year (Im now 20). The atmosphere of being cramped together with 14 thousand 14-17 year olds (well thats about 70 percent of the crowd) isnt the greatest, but the music is good. I had gone to an engagement party for a couple hours and arrived around 4pm. Went in and had a beer with some friends before going to see Killswitch Engage. Ive seen them 5 times and they always impress me. Even down a guitarist they sounded amazing. After i went to see a band from around here called Bayside. Good catchy music, too many 14 year old girls yelling the mediocre lyrics. Then ended the day by seeing New Found Glory. I dont care what anyone says, I love this band and the fact that they do a Gorilla Biscuits cover (for anyone into NYHC you may appreciate that). There was a couple other bands I saw but they werent that great.
Overall- Killswitch stole the show.
Always have wanted to go to a Cypress Hill concert http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xe8...m-the-bong-liv
