unnnnnless they play their old school


You don't want Metallica playing their old stuff... Little Lars can't keep up Laughing And hearing James attempt those songs brings a tear to my eye, and not in a good nostalgic way. Shame, cuz they're my favourite band Sad

Anyone think Foo fighters will come back again for 2008? They've got a new album coming out towards the end of this year. They seem to like BDO's.

Although it's highly unlikely.... I want to see Weezer.

Happy

The Boiler Room... hmmm.... DJ Shadow would RULE.


i've heard that UNKLE are rumoured!
Not that shadow is with them anymore but War stories is such an awesome album. that would make my BDO for 08.

i would love the mars volta to come back but after the march(?) concert i don't think they will for a while.

yeh i was. it was totally awesome!

although it was strange how they played almost every track from amputechture exactly how it is on the album. i'd seen them once before and it was like a big ol random jam with a couple of recognisable pieces thrown in so that wasn't what i was expecting at all. so good though!

I did Wink

My point was this: When they DO play their old stuff, it sounds incredibly sad.

I thought it was awesome. They played all their songs as they were on the albums, but they also included extended guitar and drum solos which were out of this world. And they opened with rapidfire tollbooth, which was the first time they have ever played that song live, and is to be on their latest album.

I'd be keen for Rage to come... and I'd love Marilyn Manson to come, seeing as I can't get tickets for his October show. But I doubt he'll come. After all, he's playing a show in Auckland three months before BDO.

It would be pretty sweet if Muse came again... They're fucking awesome live. But again, they are doing a couple of shows in NZ in a couple of months, so it's unlikely they'll come.

Unfortunately, 48 May and Goodnight Nurse will probably be there.

I have no clue who will be headlining. I don't think that the Chilli's will be headlining though.

Yeah, kiddies these days have pretty much ruined the original "mosh". It's all spin kicks and shoving each other.

- Reason #64 I don't go see live bands much anymore.

Why don't you like seeing live bands anymore?

other than the kids' violent spin kicks, which personally I find rather amusing and fun to watch if the band itself becomes boring.

Meatheads who use the music as an excuse to cause a rukkus. The same old bald-headed knuckle-draggers staggering around with beer and blood down the front of themselves.

I remember headbanging, stomping and jumping, not shoving, punching and and headbutting. Maybe I've turned into a bit of a snob over the years, but I no longer enjoy fighting to stay on my feet (and I'm not a small guy) and stinking of other peoples sweat.

The only times I've enjoyed "getting messy" in recent times is when I was on tour with Sinate and other bands and blind drunk. But there was a sense of unity amongst the chaos, not the aggro I see everywhere.

To illustrate my point... I recall playing on stage, looking to the outskirts of the pit where my girlfriend was, and this munt from the front just throws himself all over the pit, right to the outskirts, and knocks her flying. If I was at the same stunted stage of evolution he was at I'd have jumped down and caved his face in with my guitar. But I didn't. Guys like that love fights. A broken nose is a sign of a good night to twits like that.

And another reason the overall quality of bands, IMO, is pretty poor. I only seem to enjoy a lot of bands after 9 or so beers. That says it all.

/end rant about the local scene.

Haven't seen a show since I quit Tainted and I have to say I don't miss a thing. There's about two bands in ChCh left that I'd actually take the time out to go see. OH SNAP!

Modest mouse would be awesome, and so would smashing pumpkins... They better have a good line up this year... I wonder if the fray would come?
