    Monster Magnet has some dates up, and they are cheap. I'm also thinking of seeing Nightwish.

    Anyone else got some decent shows lined up? Anyone they wish they could see?

    Well next show Im going to make it too is the Austin City Limits Festival, but that doesnt apply to everyone obviously as there is only one, and its in Texas hehe.
  3. Sonic Youth is touring. I've got tix to see them on the 15th in boston.
  4. All of these guys have Northeast dates lined up. Guaranteed unbelievable performances:

    Mike Stern.....Lincoln Goines or Richard Bona will be on bass, a treat either way.

    Dave Holland with a SICK lineup as usual.

    Robben Ford....not sure who's on bass, but Robben hires no slouches.
  5. Only thing I can afford right now is Rush, which should be excellent as usual.

    On the want to go but can't afford list, there's Alice Cooper, Ozzfest, and many many others.

    I couldn't get tickets anyway.

    I can't wait till Our Lady Peace starts to tour again. I am paying the high priced tickets to see that one :hyper:
  9. Two friends and I just took a road trip to Pittsburgh this past weekend (Sun-Mon) for a They Might Be Giants show. Great concert as always...Matt, you should've started this thread a few days ago; you could've found out about the show beforehand, as it was apparently pretty close to you :hyper:

    Rush is out (I know someone already said that, but it bears repeating).

    Dream Theater is touring with Yes, which is a show that should just about cover the entire history of progressive rock.

    Killswitch Engage is out, but they might be overseas.

    Has anybody caught an Alice Cooper show recently? I just checked out their site, and they'll be not too far from me next week...I'm just wondering if it would be worth an hour and a half drive to check 'em out.

    The Cure has just kicked off their "Curiosa" tour with several other bands including Interpol.
  16. Try to catch Stockholm Syndrome for some good old rock and roll. This is a new band that has Dave Schools (the bassist from Widepread Panic) in it. Jerry Joseph is a great songwriter and Eric McFadden wails on the gettar.

    Cool band name too.

    Prince is touring with Rhonda Smith on bass, Maceo Parker on trumpet and Candi Dulfer on sax.



  18. I saw them about 3 months ago, I was about 3 feet from Jimbo at all times. And about 6 inches from the PA's main right side.

    They rule live.

  19. Yeah , I was up in Michigan earlier this month and saw them , and let me just say that Alice hasnt lost it . He was owning the stage. Badass show , Highly reccomend it.

    Id like to see YES, but i prolly wont be able too, and My Morning Jacket are touring, I might go see them in New Orleans, I dunno. On Sept 5th im goin to see Van Halen , which I hope is pretty awesome.
  20. wish i could see g3..but i did see steve vai monday night...mmmmmmmmmmmmm...vai
