What bands have you seen love? What was your favorite? Any stories you want to share about seeing bands love?

The few I've managed to see live are;
The Sword
Opeth (with red fang and in flames)
Boris
Electric Wizard
Stone Titan (with some dope local bands from my city)
Wolf Blood (A dope local metal band from my city)

My favorite so far was definitely Electric Fucking Wizard. Right before the band came on stage they set up a perfect time for us to smoke by turning off all the lights and lighting incense so we can all get blazed before the sonic ass kicking state. Someone forgot to plug in the laptop for the background video though, so at the end of the first song the low battery thing popped in the projection behind the stage, was kind of funny. Some chick next to me got hit in the face with a flying beer can, was also pretty funny. 




I would really like to see more bands live but its such a pain in the ass to get into the city to see bands. I'm also always fucking working when the local bands play so I always miss out on them. The stone titan concert in my city was pretty dope since it was a basement show so we could bring our own alcohol and smoke pot.

I remember leaving the SOAD and thinking "I need to post about this in lewd.sx as soon as I get home"
I didn't ._.

Anyhow, to list them off and elaborate on them a bit, the concerts I've gone to that weren't just me being dragged by my parents were:

Erlend Øye. It was probably the nicest (not best, but most chill and friendly) concert I've been to. He was just a really easygoing guy for the concert and there was some nice energy from the crowd without being overwhelming.

El Cuarteto de Nos. It was really hype because I knew all their songs; they're all great fun to sing. More fun than Erlend's but that's because I didn't really know any of the songs he played. Got a poster and everything.

System Of A Down. Definitely the most interesting and possibly the best concert I've been to. Maybe one of the best days of my life, but that could be overstating it. I never thought being in a mass of throbbing, sweaty flesh while music I barely knew played with terrible acoustics would be so fun. The air was stuffy and humid, but somehow it was really easy to melt into everyone and have an absolutely fantastic time. It really helped that I went with friends. I even ran into a mosh pit for a bit. I would've never expected myself to like it.

After the concert, we went to a taquería that was really far away from where the concert happened. We parked, got off the car, and on our way to the place, some guy on a van with a lot of eyeliner said hello (all my friends but one had SOAD shirts, by the way). We said hello back without paying much attention and just kind of kept walking until one of us asked "Wait, wasn't that the band's guitarist?" We walked back and sure enough, it was Daron Malakian. I actually laughed out loud in disbelief. We got photos with him and I even got his autograph on a poker card. I think it's really awesome how he could've just ignored us and let us walk by, but said hello. It was great and incredibly memorable.

I'm the rightmost (or leftmost?) guy with a weeb shirt and glasses. Not my most flattering photo, but hey ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

In reality, all he's doing is pushing the same buttons he always has, nothing has changed. The longer he spends here, the more invested he gets, the more he forgets which life is the real one.

I went to a Boyz II Men concert once.

It was nice, though I really wasn't much into it, like when the crowd started singing along with the group. I hope I never get aisle seats, because I know I'd flop the lyrics to any song if the vocalist decided to pick someone from the audience.

Some bands I've seen live:
- Daughter
- The Do
- Robbing Millions
- Samaris
- Solstafir
- Travis
- Sea+Air
- Bear's Den
- Glen Hansard
- Damien Rice
- Jan Roth
- Seasick Steve
- Beatsteaks
- Bad Religion

Robbing Millions was probably my favourite "let's give them a try" concert so far. Haven't heard them before. They played at a smaller festival. It wasn't too crowded and the sound was awesome. If you like psychedelic experimental indie rock, check them out. :)

Beatsteaks was the craziest concert I've been so far. The whole crowd was jumping like wtf. It was fun! :3

The only concert I've ever been to was one for The Wiggles, when I was five.

One of the nice things about living in Mexico City is that since it's Stock Latin American City we get shit tons of concerts.

I've only been to one concert with a mate to see Parkway Drive. It was so good!

Here's some footage that someone got from the concert I went too.
