Crazy that this wasn't a thread already, right?

I'll get it kicked off with a rating for Big Freedia the Queen Diva, who I saw a few nights ago. You can't go wrong with gay New Orleans bounce. It's very repetitive but it's crazy fun to dance to. And the twerking onstage was the best I've ever seen. The PNW is a little reserved when it comes to things other than soccer, food carts, nudity, and beer, but damn, Seattle got turnt the fuck up on a Tuesday night! Wow! Everyone was shaking their asses. I will give her a 9.5/10. Impossible not to have fun at a Big Freedia show (unless you are socially conservative to the point of extremism).

Sounds like fun!

I saw 3 bands at 3 different venues as part of Melbourne music week last night. Incredible night, the first show was a really cool electronics band I dig who performed off a balcony to a crowd amassed on a Laneway (fucking Melbourne as fuck lol) and unfortunately ridiculously expensive beer which is also typical, unfortunately. But the weather was great and there was definitely a sense of summer in the air. I was kinda jealous it wasn't our band playing, but fuck it. Free entry to all the shows was an obvious plus, and the next band we saw (who I recently made mention of in another thread played one of the best live shows I've ever fucking seen. Was pretty drunk by the time we got to the last band, so don't remember a heap lol. Great night though; 3 great local bands at 3 different venues and only spent like 50 bucks. Rare and good fucking stuff!

8.5/10

I've always wanted to see pop in to a concert for a band I've never listened to before so last night I did just that and went to an Escort show. All night long I kept thinking about what a great decision that was. The band played some electrifying modern disco jams that had me grooving the whole time. I hear that sometimes they perform with 17 members, but there were only about 7 on stage last night, though it was a tiny stage and those seven members were still able to fill the club to the brim with funk. Plus, in addition to being a talented singer, the frontwoman was gorgeous and I couldn't keep my eyes off her for more than a few seconds throughout the performance. - 8/10

I love the recorded stuff I've heard from Escort, and I've always assumed they are a blast live. Good to hear that's the case, I may try to check them out.

Oh man, I love Escort, I would kill to see and Escort show.

Last night Freth and I went to see NMH... Fantastic, surprisingly hard-rocking show. The audience sang along to every word so it felt very special.

I would love to see them live but I think I would feel like a poser since I only listen to "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea."

Trampled by Turtles in Chapel Hill, NC - Nov. 14th - 10/10

Top 5 show for me this year. Had tickets to see them twice in the past year, one was cancelled after a nasty storm came through, and the 2nd one I wasn't able to make. Always nice to have a mostly seated, quiet crowd as well for this type of music.

Heres my recording of the Chapel Hill show - https://archive.org/details/TBT2013-11-14

I went to see Thundercat last night. helluva good time. The Range opened, petty cool stuff. i had only started listening to him yesterday before the show but that album is really good, glad the show got me listening. thundercat has some ridiculous bass-playing skills. for a cheap show (15 bucks) it was worth every penny. ended up the Pats were starting overtime right when the show ended so i was able to run to a bar downstairs and watch it. 9.5/10 overall

Saw him just a week ago when he was in Seattle, incredible show. I am pretty sure I've never seen someone play an instrument that well before in person. His band was amazing too, and when he revealed his band was just his older brother and younger brother, I was just like, okay, that's not fair.

I covered a Tyga concert at my school's auditorium for the college newspaper. The article snowballed into what amounted to a 1300-word essay. Understandably the thing was cut down to 400 words when it appeared in the paper. Here's the full thing (spoiler, I didn't like it and Tyga managed to be significantly worse live than he is on record)

If I must rate the concert: 2.5/10

MGMT in Charlotte, NC last night - 8/10


My first time seeing them. Didn't really have high expectations for the show as the venue they played sucks and usually sounds awful. Surprisingly their guy had them tuned in nicely and the sold out crowd (90% high schoolers) were really into the show. I got a pass from the band to tape the show, so hopefully I get approved soon to post that online. I was only familiar with songs off their first album, so most of the songs were new to me.
