    Off to the OhGr show this weekend in Vancouver!!

    Fixer808 > do you not care for OhGr? I saw you mention there weren't really any good shows that caught your eye recently coming to Vancouver in the Rammstein thread, you should hit up the OhGr show this weekend at the Rickshaw if you have the chance, tickets are only $25, It'll be a great show!

    Asside from that, this year has been great for concerts... I pretty much saw all my fav. bands this year.
    2 Rammstein show's last May, KMFDM in August, SONOIO in September, Foo Fighters in October and now OhGr will round up the year this weekend, not a bad year for concerts.

    Tomorrow I see Wilco, which obviously I'm excited for and Nick FUCKING Lowe is opening for them. Sunday I'm seeing The National, which will actually be the first time I don't see them in a festival setting. Local Natives are opening that gig, so that should be cool. My brother is having is company Christmas party on Saturday and Huey Lewis and the News are the entertainment...if that counts. Mountain Goats in January, and Band of Skulls in March.

    and THIS is exactly what we were talking about in the Rammstein thread. The shows are barely selling, and one suggestion made was that they announced the tour so close to ticket sales it never gave anyone the chance to get excited before grabbing their tickets. That and it's very poor promotion. Even here in Vancouver, barely seen any literature in the papers advertising the show.

    But either way, help the poor ticket sales mate, grab a ticket to the Vancouver show! You're not that far away! It's worth traveling for.

    Russian Circles are playing here tomorrow, sadly I think I'm too poor to go.

    I did get to see Primus in Madison this fall. Great show, the new album is really good, but I haven't been that stoned in many years.

    Thought it was awesome. I was hoping to see you there or meet up, but it's cool, there will be more shows. Local Natives surprised me and the crowd ate it up. National were awesome, but I agree AMH sucks. I hope Emo's East buries it.

    Just got back from Electric Six, who were fucking awesome as always (I see them annually). They're so much heavier live than on album, always a very intense show.

    And they were supported by a band called "Swound!", who I've never heard of but were really fucking awesome.

    Next concert is probably Barry Adamson in February unless someone good comes up in January.

    Going to see Rammstein in May. Coldplay is coming to town and I adore them but I rather save that $$$ for when Depeche Mode comes here.

    TOOL. I'm seeing them.


    None of you probably care about this, but I'm seeing Tool. I'm drunk so I don't care what you think. This is like the highlight of my entire year. Even if I don't get tickets, I'll get in. 'There's no other choice.' TOOL is the best live band I've ever seen and I won't allow myself to miss a concert that just so happens to be in a city near me. FUCK. TOOL. SHIT, SON.
