Isis, The Mars Volta, Murder By Death and Darkest Hour put on the best shows.


I usually hangout in the back and listen to the music, unless I'm seeing any of these bands....then I'm up and moving.

LOL, why wouldn't you want a lesson on how to play "Holy Wars"?! :lol:

I've never been a concert guy. But just from watching some of their live performances at awards shows or on youtube and such I really like Mumford and Sons. Also, Eddie Vedder seems like he would be great live.

Oddly, I found Megadeth to be boring as hell live. They're technically amazing and precise, but there didn't seem to be any life to their show. It was just them playing songs exactly like they sounded on the album .

I agree! I do not call this LIVE! ;)

Taking Back Sunday. Adam broke 2 mics swinging them round his head or throwing them in the air, and sang 3 songs whilst standing on the bar at the back of the venue having crowdsurfed there. Plus, they killed.

Zeb, Portishead, really? I like Portishead, but wasn't it Beth sitting in a chair whilst a guy twiddled some knobs? Or was it the shows they did with an orchestra

Naw man, it was a full band, prolly 10 or 11 folks, 2 drummers... it was the best. Granted, I'd been waiting to see them live for 15 years, it was everything I'd hoped for and more, and Beth is my hero, she could've sang into a Tyco mic and made me happy. But still, it was really freakin great. They were perfect.

Nice. I've never seen them live (I don't know anybody else who likes them) but their live album at Roseland with the orchestra is something I would love to see live. I have it on video, so I can't even watch it on TV.

Man, that's like my favorite band of all time (them and Radiohead). Seeing them live was a dream come true, and they didn't disappoint.

For me it would have to be Nine Inch Nails, Trent Reznor is amazing live! Also I've been blown away everything I have seen Mars Volta live.

Primus are fantastic live.

Zappa Plays Zappa was probably my favorite live act, though. Closest thing I'll ever get to Frank.

I don't go see live music much anymore, but I've seen Primus about five times. Alice In Chains was good,White Zombie, a few others. Henry Rollins put on a good show when I saw him.

Iron Maiden always put on a great show, seen 'em twice. Coheed and Cambria are super tight musicians and sound really good live.

The most intense band I've seen live is a band called "Letlive". It was at a cool, small venue in Spokane called the Kave. After finishing their set (they were the last of 5 bands that night, mostly local ones), the crowd starts chanting for an encore, and the singer just starts pacing the stage faster and faster. He then proceeds to punch out a nearby light with his bare fist, breaking it. Then, he starts smearing the blood from his hand on the wall behind him while the band begins to play and they go on to play a 3-song encore. I happen to know the guys who run the venue, and they weren't too happy with the blood all over the white wall, but it was pretty crazy to watch.
