Gone To:

Metallica: 9.5/10

Fantastic Concert, Bastards would'nt play 'Whiskey since Rob did'nt know the Bass for it...cunts. Otherwise, A damn good concert.

Christina Aguilera: 3/10

I was dragged to this piece of shit, The whore mimed the whole thing.

Linkin Park: 8/10

Alot better than I expected, they were also pretty good to the crowd aswell admitting that they could never 'co-headline' with Metallica and that they were admittingly, The backing act. Everyone else seemed to hate them though, A friend of mine even hit the DJ's set with a bottle of water.

Black Eyed Peas: 1/10

Backing up Christina...Horrible

The Darkness: 7/10

Also backing up Metallica they only had 'Growing On Me' out at the time and were'nt really that big, The crowd loved them anyway and worked pretty well as an opening comedy act kind of thing. Were'nt the worst band live...

EDIT: I editted the whole post to include ratings for those mentioned and the back-up acts.

Seen the Lostprophets (with the Bronx and Avenged Sevenfold as supports, who are both amazing to see live and on cd) 7/10.

Seen Funeral for a Friend (with Hondo Maclean and Further Seems Forever as supports) again good. 8/10. They translate well in a small venue.

Saw WASP (with Dragonforce in support, who blow) 6/10.

Going to see Killswitch Engage (with God Forbid, Shadows Fall - who are amazing, and Chimira in support) Should be cool, wanted to see Shadows Fall for a while.

Going to see Taking Back Sunday, meh the melody is nice.

And of course Reading from Wednesday onwards.

I haven't been to that many this year.

Edit Forgot Skindred - 7/10 - really cool band.

StoneSour with Saliva in Bristol - 8/10

Both StoneSour and Saliva were really into the show and was all around a brillant night.

StoneSour with Murderdolls in Birmingham - 8/10

Met Josh Rand at this show which is always a plus point, but unfortinatly that plus point goes down because Elviss were opening the show, and not to mention they sounded really heavy due to a woman pressing buttons for bass on the sound desk...Murderdolls were ok but StoneSour were wicked as usual

I also find it odd how I have only been to StoneSour gigs...oh well plenty of other chances. Ill Nino would be a cool one to go to in the future.

In the last year:

The Libertines x 2 - 10/10 both times

(supported by Chas and Dave - 8/10, and The Kills - 7/10)

Muse x 2 - 10/10 again for both shows

(supported by Elbow - 7.5/10)

BRMC - 7/10

Electric Six (free tickets from xfm) - 7/10

(supported by Junior Senior - 6/10)

I'm sure there are others but I can't remember. Technically last year's V Festival was over a year ago (saw Damien Rice, Athlete, Ash, Foo Fighters, Coldplay), but it's been so long I wouldn't call it recent so won't rate them or anything.

Local battle of the bands 9/10 - Kicked ass, was in a little bar in the college arts center.

The Hot Quiche Conspiricy - 11/10 - played at my girlfriends college leavers ball last night in a posh hotel. So it was them on the dance floor cause the dj and all the lighting and sound equipment were on the extremely small stage.

So it was them on a dance floor, drums, bass player, guitar player, singer, trumpet player and 2 trombone players. plus over 150 people. It was simply awesome.

I've never seen such a smartly dressed ska/rock mosh pit lol.

These guys are so great :D


Red Hot Chili Peppers - Edinburgh in two weeks

Carling Leeds Festival - back end of August, got me a full weekend ticket, going with a massive amount of people.

Yeah it was awesome the singer came out to the circle pit and I got to run into him. Ah, good times.

They're playing on the Radio 1 stage on Saturday with the Icarus Line if you're going to that.

My girlfriend saw them in Newcastle, they had 3 support bands and being the geordies everyone was well up for them even though half the people never heard of them before. So apparently by the time RBF got on everyone was knackered and thoguht they sucked compared to the supports.

Which made the band mad, and they were apparently trying for ages to get people louder and moving and eventually got so pissed off and started insulting the crowd.

This year, on El Paso

Puddle of Mudd (With: Smile Empty Soul)- 9.5/10

Absolutely amazing concert. The people were nice, there were some entertaining moments, the crowd was hot, I was on the front row and I was able to greet Wesley and Paul. It was just mind blowing, but Smile Empty Sould kept them from reaching 10. At the moment, I had only heard Bottom of a bottle, and they played around 7-8 songs, so it was hard to follow them (Although I did liked them).

The Strokes - 9/10

Amazing, but it was unconfortable (sp?) to me with the people, and no air conditioner, so everyone of us were sweating pigs, and I managed to eat hair and lose my converse (Although I recovered it after the concert ended). It was a good concert, but the sound wasn't that amazing because of poor production level, so to say.

A Perfect Circle - 10/10

Great. Great. Great. One of my favorite bands and the way they take most of their songs and either add more parts or lyrics to make it sound like a completely different song is awesome.

Alkaline Trio w/Senses Fail - 8/10

Senses Fail suck. I like Alkaline Trio, but I'm not familiar with most of their songs. The only songs I recognized were Armageddon and Private Eye, so it was hard to follow most of the show. They're good live though.

I haven't really gotten around to seeing many shows lately, the two most recent ones I can think of are...

Primus - 10/10

Six Feet Under - 7/10 (shit band, fun show)

I'm going to see Cannibal Corpse sometime in July though.

Bastard. Take me with you.

I'm going to see Iced Earth on June 9th more than likely. Besides that the only concerts I've been to have been for local bands. If someone wants me to post those I will.

Okay. Here's vol. 1, part one of "GoGoLove goes to concerts! Maybe you should too!" It chronicles all of last year's shows I went to, starting with the Nova Benefit Show at the Vera Project last year.

The opening band was Jehosephat, which no longer exists. They had three songs and the first two were pretty bad. However, the third song was GREAT. It was called the Rant Song and it featured Rebecca, the singer, going like "You know what I hate? Pizza! Because it gets all over your fingers and you have to clean them up with napkins! ... You know what I hate? Napkins!" and so on until she referred to the song itself and finished with "You know what I hate? This song!" From the ashes of this has sprung the much better Red Scare. (5/10 because of the Rant Song and the fact that Rebecca herself is really funny, creating up random bullshit origins for her band.)

Then came Washington State Legislature, or W.A.S.L. for short, featuring a bunch of my friends; Victor, Robin (who is now in a band with me called Sci-Fi Life and Death), Josh, Ky and Tristan (the latter three are accquaintances, really, but whatever). They were actually really fun. The songs were really goofy, but enjoyable and at one point there was a really funny semi-song where Tristan, who was doing vocals at that point (it switched between him and Victor), asked everyone to lie down and close their eyes and they'd get hot chocolate. And yep, everyone who did so got said chocolate drink. (6/10 for innovation and amusing songs.)

Then came Pederast. I remember literally nothing about them, so they get no rating.

And then one of the two "real" bands paying, the Botox Aftermath, a political punk band who sung songs mocking the government and all that. Solid stuff all around, but the way they ended their set, by playing "Stand By Me" and inviting everyone who knew the lyrics to come up on stage and sing it with them, bumps it up a point because it was so awesome. (7/10 for rockin' and stuff.)

I left after that, so I don't know how the other headliner was.

It's late now, so I'll stop there. In part two of volume one; Evanescence! White Stripes! Weird Al! And Cold stinking up the joint! BE THERE!

GoGoLove Goes to Concerts! Maybe you should too! Vol. 1, part 2.

Winding down with 2003, let's head to Bumbershoot '03, where I went for one day and saw four groups...

First was Black Eyed Peas, because I was waiting for Vendetta Red to start. Enjoyable hip-hop, but nothing compared to the band I WANTED to see but couldn't due to being doublebooked at that time, De La Soul. They were still good enough to keep my attention until it was time to go, though. (6/10 for being good enough for government work.)

Then was Vendetta Red, a band I quite like but am worried about. I'll get to that later. The show itself was in this little enclosed space and I somehow was pushed into the very middle of the crowd where people were moshing, or attempting to, and giving me a headache. And there was this one guy who pissed me off because he kept yelling the names of the songs they were playing. "OPIATE SUMMER! OPIATE SUMMER! OPIATE SUMMER!" I KNOW IT'S FUCKING OPIATE SUMMER, YOU DUMBSHIT, BECAUSE THEY'RE PLAYING IT RIGHT THE FUCK NOW, SO SHUT UP! Vendetta Red themselves were good, but they did do one thing that continues to piss me off; they keep pushing "Stay Home", a blase emo "Daddy beats us." singalong, as one of their big songs when it's probably the worst song they've ever made. And they didn't play "All Cried Out" or "Ribcage Menagerie." So this was a flawed, but entertaining show since V-Red's vocalist, Zach Davidson, always spazzes out on stage. (7/10 for a good show, but also a scary foreshadowing of what their new stuff might be like.)

After a couple hours of hanging out I went to the main stage and saw the two headlining bands. The first was Cold. Now, all I had heard from them was the song from Tough Enough II and "Stupid Girl", the latter of which I enjoyed to some extent despite the fact that it's a really dumb song. So I was expecting them to be decent. Wrooooooooong. They sounded completely unmotivated and bored, that or they are just not good at playing big shows. As it turns out a lot of members of my clique were at the same show, though I didn't see them, and the general consensus was that they sucked. However, they did do Stupid Girl all right, but that was it. (3/10 for managing to pull the one song that mattered off right.)

Finally came Evanescence (sic?), who I sort of like. They slightly got lucky, really, because it would take a REALLY bad band to NOT sound better than Cold did. Evanescence, anyway, put on a decent show that never really got entirely entertaining, but were comfortably okay with some nice moments. Could Amy Lee have thanked Seattle MORE, though? Between every song she HAD to remind us of how very very much she loved us or whatever because 107.7 was one of the first stations to play them. (6/10 for not sucking and generally being moderately good.)

Moving on, now, to the Seahawks Exhibition Center or something for another doubleshot of garageish bluesy rock & roll! By the way, if you see a concert being held at this place, DO NOT GO unless you absolutely adore the bands playing. It's an awful place for concerts. So, the opener was the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who I came in a little late for. They sounded pretty decent but nothing truly amazing. However, it might have had something to do with the utter suckiness of the venue more than the band's quality. (6/10 for trying valiantly to sound good at a bad place)

And then the headliners, the White Stripes. After what felt like an eternity of Betty Boop cartoons (you read that right. This British girl who flew in to Seattle to see the show (WTF?) and I ended up randomly making fun of the cartoons to pass the time), the Stripes played and they were awesome. They hit every right note for the most part in terms of song choices, though I wish they'd have played "The Air Near My Fingers", and sounded really good considering. And for their encore, since this was only a couple days removed from Johnny Cash's death, they covered Cash and did a great job of it. Well played, Jack and Meg, well played. (8/10 for overcoming a terrible venue and rocking my socks.)

And then there was Al. I've been a lifelong fan of Weird Al Yankovic and FINALLY I got the chance to see him live, and for FREE! (Well, technically. I had to pay for admission to the fair, but I got good general admission seats to see Al.) And holy FUCK does the man put on a show. He played every major song he ever released sans Like a Surgeon, I think maybe Dare to Be Stupid, and Another One Rides the Bus for whatever reason, half of them in the GREATEST LIVE MEDLEY EVER where he just blitzed through a verse or two of like ten or so of his best songs (including My Bologna, the My Heart Will Go On parody about pizza delivery, Jurassic Park, the Billy Joel Piano Man parody about Spider-Man (Ode to a Webslinger?), and SO MUCH MORE). Not to mention dressing up in full Kurdt Cobain regalia for Smells Like Nirvana and yes, the MOTHERFUCKING FAT SUIT FOR "FAT"! And he also did Your Horoscope for Today, which is totally his best original song, and he managed to perfectly transition The Saga Begins into Yoda (and for the former he had a ton of guys in Storm Troopers show up!). This is a comedy concert at its finest, and transitions into not just a concert, but also performance art. (10/10 for being tied for being the best concert I have ever seen EVER.)

Coming up in Vol. 2, the shows I've seen this year so far! Featuring RASPUTINA~!, the triumphant return of Rebecca from Jehosephat, and the worst band I've ever seen (not either of the previous mentioned bands)! Be there! Again!

The Killers Yesterday

The Departure (supporting): 8/10 - surprisingly good. Bassist was class.

Surferosa (supporting): 9/10 - The lead singer was charismatic and got the crowd going. She looked demented at times, but she was great. I got her autograph and shook her hand. She stage-dived on my friends as well.

The Killers: 10/10 - Wow. While I was pushed back becaue I'm small and didn't want to get killed in the Mosh Pit I watched from afar. But still...FUCKING class. Mr. Brightside was brilliant - but the highlight was Indie Rock 'n' Roll.
