Listening to "bad" bands

    Does anyone else listen to a band that you normally wouldn't after a really good live show? There's definately a couple bands that I shouldn't like, but saw live and was so impressed that I listen to them.

    My current example is metric. They were opening for a band I wanted to see, and I was amazed. I could've set my watch by their bass player. Not ammazing lines, but he sounded amazing and their singer went all out.

    Probly just me, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.
  2. I never would have run into Ozomatli if I hadn't seen them live in Amoeba Records. They were great and I've been a fan ever since.

    And just to clarify, they are in no way a "bad" band as the thread title suggests.....they are great recorded and live.

    A lot of local bands. There is a band out of Pittsburgh (I think) called "The Microwaves" and they came to Edinboro and blew me away. I bought their CD and it was a real letdown.

    After seeing Melt Bannana open up for the Fantomas, my friend bought their CD and it sounded more... hmmm, techno than their live set.

    A couple of years ago, I saw New Found Glory. I liked 'em so much, that I bought one of thier CDs.
