Neither do Porcupine Tree but that doesn't diminish their live capabilities.

If a band can sound as good live or even better than their studio output then I appreciate them even more and know that all the studio trickery in the world won't hide a bands stage show and Foals were superb live.

I couldn't give 2 craps if they didn't dance around like loons (but FYI lead singer/guitarist Yannis stagedived from his P.A around 15 foot high when I saw them on their warm up tour and again still playing his guitar into a 1,000+ crowd this week when I watched them again). I just want to see a band that care as much about playing live than sitting around in a studio.

I am immensely proud of the fact that by the middle of next week I will have attended 5 live gigs in the space of 3 weeks and regardless of the fact that some of them are not known at all, I am still out there supporting bands and enjoying myself.

My advice? bollocks to hearsay and get out there and go see some live music.

Default Equinox

Not much of a "concert" but im thinking of going to an equinox ceremony in Tecate mexico. Where the elders that are the memory of diferent traditional native tribes gather to share the word, dance and sweatlodge ceremony to anyone who comes (this usually atracts people from all over the world). Making this a 4 day "festival" where what you hear mostly is A big drum.

When I saw them, the show was great fun. Loads of energy on stage, several crowd surfs, great lighting. One of the best gigs I've been to.

Just bought tickets to see Acid Mothers Temple in May. I'm turning 21 in a month, so I can actually go to 21+ venues. This'll be my first concert of an artist I actually want to go see.

Going with my girlfriend. It's their first time coming to Seattle, and The Neptune Theater is a fantastic venue.

21+ venues because of alcohol consumption?

Definitely great to celebrate it with an AMT concert! I've been wondering how they'd put on a performance. Happy birthday indeed.
