Being near civilization is one of the very, very few perks of going to my school. Haven't seen a show in way too long, though.
the choice between Rorschach and spanish class is more difficult then it should be

Going to see Sevendust this Wednesday... going to have to skip my 3 hour physics lab, but it'll be so worth it especially considering this may be one of the last times I get to see them if their rumored mutual breakup next year is true.

GirlTalk with Lupe Fiasco is coming to campus on the 22nd. I'm considering going just for Lupe Fiasco and then leaving early haha
I'm sorry, is that okay? You sure? Ha, alright. Okay. Sorry though
So last night was the Within Temptation concert. It was great. And loud. Not necessarily from the music (though that was a factor), but just that everyone was cheering so loud (Though this is probably typical of concerts, I don't know because I haven't been to any other concerts). I thought they would play the entire The Unforgiving album considering they were on tour for it, but they only played about half of it, with the rest being songs from the back catalog. Not a bad thing, though.
3 opened for them, and although I missed half of the actual performance waiting in the merch line, they were pretty good. I'd never heard of them before, but they sounded like Dream Theater which was good.

GandWuser's Tiering Thread - Come waste my time here!
This past year, I have seen:
A bunch of boring reggae-rock bands:
Tomorrow's Bad Seeds
PK- a great local alternative rock band
Still Time- another local band, pretty good I guess
The Ragged Jubiliee- An adequate blues-rock band whose singer has a horrible fake rasp.
Zion I and The Grouch- This was the first time I've ever seen hip-hop done live. For someone who doesn't care for hip-hop, this was surprisingly awesome. Jam-packed show as well, even though I knew nothing about them.
Everest- ZZZZZZ. a rock band that's not heavy, catchy, or interesting enough to enjoy. I don't think there was anyone at the show who was truly enjoying it. I wasn't even looking at the band for much of the show.
PJ Simas- some kid at my school who raps. He's OK I guess, but it felt a bit underwhelming after seeing Zion I and The Grouch.If I had seen him before, it might have been a bit more enjoyable.
Citizen Cope- Another crowded show, but not quite as crowded as Zion I. Again, I wasn't familiar with this man's work. He was INCREDIBLY late, and I almost walked out. I believe it was some sort of folk-rock, but I couldn't quite tell. What really angered me is that it was supposed to be an "acoustic" performance, but he went ahead and used pre-recorded backing tracks on a few songs. I ended up leaving the show early anyway- it wasn't much fun.
Andrew Bell- Also like Citizen Cope, but his music was much more melodic and relaxing and truly acoustic. After getting burned by CC, it was nice to have someone on-time who I could just kick back and enjoy.
Bakersfield Winds- Not the type of music this thread had in mind, but it's still live music, so it totally counts.
