Concerts you’ve been or going to?


#1

Question in title, let’s see the hands.

I myself am going to see phantogram and hail the sun this month and deadmau5 here in a month. First time seeing all of them but I have seen strawberry girls before and they are opening for hail the sun. Stoked for d5 since he’s been hyping the new cube 3 setup past couple months, and he’s playing the set on his own, not a festival like goldrush


#2

Im going to see HEART at the Hollywood bowl on Monday. Joan Jett opens.
feeling real good about it.


#3

That sounds really cool, I can’t touch the prices for more mainstream \ established bands or acts though, I saw a Phil Collins ticket for front row here in Phx for over 3,000 dollars. I was shocked and the alternative is the far far seats for like 200 and it’s a bummer for me,

On that note, I just snapped up Melanie Martinez tickets, I waited until her new album released, and I was not disappointed, I’m sure she will sell out here


#4

I think I’ll be going to see Shelter in November …


#5

Southern Culture on the Skids in mid October at one of my fav local venues.


#6

I’ve seen Kim Myhr’s you|me band at a festival at the end of August, it was absolutely perfect. Ingar Zach playing the bass drum was amazing. Check out Kim Myhr if you haven’t listened to him yet; really one of my favs


#7

Idk if you guys have done this but usually you can find the set list for a particular artist of their last Venue. so I’ve actually made a little hype playlist of all the tracks from the artists I’m planning to see out of those setlists. Has me feeling clever aha,

So yeah update here, phantogram was crazy, it was sold out, I got front, and they got hella real talking to the crowd at the show for a moment. What was really cool was they played a new track off their upcoming album. they had really neat visuals, they would do this weird live recording for the background that was hella filters. After concert I got to hang around at the bar that’s next door that’s all pinball machines everywhere and hella murals of all these rock artists everywhere.

For the hail the sun concert it was much smaller at a small venue but it was rock solid. I really liked it because the bands would just hang with the crowds, being normal people. I felt bad since I felt shy but I finally hit up the singer for hail the sun while he was trying to eat before his set just to tell him wow man blah blah blah you’re hella workin making music with all these bands, dude was the homie and got a picture. I liked this concert a lot just because the vibe just felt more personal. Only thing that sucked was I did get mad hammered and had to take a break for like 30 minutes from being light headed.

Has anyone went to a concert here recently? What was the vibes like? Can you notice a difference between the bigger ones to the small venues?

On a final note, I hella committed and got tickets for a Senses Fail concert coming up, super excited, these dudes have been making music forever, and it’s not the hardest, but I think they were one of the first bands I listened to in the vein when I was a teenager.

If I’m going to see a live band I almost always prefer smaller venues. I do like lawn seats at an amphitheater for a show once in a while. For a DJ I do like being in big space with a ton of people so you can have that huge warehouse sound.


Not a concert, but went to a special premiere screening of Rob Zombie’s 3 form Hell (part of his trilogy).
