Yeah I dont think any of the bands I listed would be pinned and hyped as good live bands, they were just my personal choice from seeing them in the past. I dont think there is anyone like that at present unfortunately, over here KoL get hyped a lot but its not really for their live shows.

I believe truly great live performances consistently come from Gogol Bordello and Flobots, at the moment. Les Claypool still puts on a great time.

Phish

(or to show how amazing Phish's lighting is)


Gov't Mule


Dark Star Orchestra


Andrew Jackson Jihad

I saw Interpol and Arcade Fire in November, both were sensational especially Interpol. One of the tightest live bands in the world right now.

yeah man your sig sucks. but i do agree alexisonfire are mindblowing at shows, this was back in 2007 when the ghost of a thousand & saosin played with them. it was incredible, they were on top form.

also, add queens of the stone age to my list. forgot i'd seen them, they are one of the best live bands around, even now. no one does rock n roll like josh homme now.
