I kind of live vicariously through Mod on Twitter and Facebook. He goes to all the shows I want to go to.

Even the boring ones!

But seriously... if that's the location you secured for Arcade Fire @ Madison Square that was probably a pretty fantastic evening.
Maybe every day is Saturday morning.

I was worried about seeing them at MSG which was by far the biggest venue Ive seen them in (of my 4 times) but it was great.  It was actually better than a smaller theater because with GA you could get right up front. Going to Chicago today for Lollapalooza, never been, excited to see them again Sunday.

I just saw The Wall live with Roger Waters, best concert ive been to, it goes hand in hand with Water's tour in 2007 when he played dark side of the moon.

any kids here saw him in the states? if not, you really missed it.

as a teenager I used to dream to see this album live, and now it came true, the concert was off the charts.

I went, and it was actually one of the best artistic things i've ever been a part of.  To see them actually build up the wall. Jesus. Wow.  I'm glad you got to experience that too...

I saw Bright Eyes in Stockholm for not so long ago. It was a concert that only an obsessed teenager could experience and everything that I expected. He was rude, drunk as hell and amazing. He also tried to stage dive from the stage after the concert, and failed dramatically. It was pretty fun. I think he crushed some skinny emo girls who stood at the front (I became quite jealous at them).

I would rather have seen him live around 2002 instead, though. All their earlier songs were much better live.

simian mobile disco at terminal 5 tonight was absolutely fantastic.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.

Had yet another fantastic time at coachella. Worth every single cent. Kanye did one hell of a set. Nearly two hours and had one of the best entances I've seen for a concert, a complete showstopper.
The Beatles know Jesus Christ has returned to Earth and is in Los Angeles.

you lucky fuck. The first thing I would do if I had money would be going to one of those festival things.
You can go to places in the world with pudding. That. Is. Funny.

I went to go see godspeed you! black emperor at lee's palace in Toronto this past sunday. It was great. I've seen them 4 times between 97-02. I felt honored attending their last show before they broke up. So, I was very excited to go see them since it had been almost a decade. They were on top form but the venue isn't the best. They deserve a good auditorium with seating and great acoustics. Anyone else see them this tour?

Yup, I saw them in Vancouver. Easily the best show I've ever been to.

sweet! My show was great, but the best performance/show i ever went to was when they were in Montreal in '99, they were touring and selling "lift your skinny fists..." slightly before the street date. I'll never forget listening to "storm" for the first time and feeling some form of transcendence. utterly beautiful.
