I wonder why this thread has been so inactive for two years ....


So I was preparing myself for my first concert in possibly three years. The fabulous Joy Division Undercover band was supposed to play in my hometown tomorrow.
Guess what? I just read that the show is cancelled, the singer has the flu!! It's postponed to July now.


Anyway, I might go to these gigs in the coming weeks & months:
Helmet
Amenra
Yob


Don't have a car anymore, so my travel is as far as my bike can take me ;-)

choc e-Claire 03.13.2022 07:04 AM

I'm seeing Machine Girl in June, Gorillaz in July, and My Chemical Romance in March 2023 (the latter of which was originally scheduled for two weeks from now, which had originally been a festival in March 2020).

Should have gone to see the original lineup of the Wiggles yesterday.

Antagon 03.13.2022 09:29 AM

Wanting/Planning to, but not sure cause Austria sucks at curtailing Covid:


Low (05/11/22)
Ritual Howls (Possibly, maybe - 05/30/2022)
The Magnetic Fields (06/09/22)
Crime & The City Solution (06/22/22)

_slavo_ 03.14.2022 10:32 AM

I was going to go to Primavera in summer in Barcelona but fuck that shit.



Instead, I might end up going to Pohoda festival in Slovakia where some nice bands will play (Black midi, Squid, Shame, Nick Cave & Bad Seeds, Crack Cloud, Yves Tumor, Black Country new road, Molchat Doma, Slowthai, Snail Mail, etc.)

Damn, that lineup is amazing. Though it's hard to say what Black Country New Road is gonna be like without Isaac.

Indeed.

Btw, come join the festival! I don't have anyone to come with me.

If you'd be up for a trip, you could take a train to Bratislava (which is 40 minutes from Vienna), and I'd drive us in my car to Trencin which is 1 hour away from Bratislava.
I have a tent.
I'll ask greenlight if he'd be willing to go too.

My assumption was that they were going to move further into the post-rocky instrumental stuff they were doing on the last record, but apparently they were working on new material with the girl bassist singing even before Isaac announced leaving. They've also said that they won't want to perform 'his' songs while he's absent, so it'll be completely new material.

Drjohnrock 03.17.2022 04:33 PM

4/14/2022 - Loudon Wainwright III

Yeah, it's not guitar rock. But Wainwright is an absolute master at working a crowd. This will be my seventh time seeing him. I have yet to see him put on a bad show.

choc e-Claire 03.17.2022 10:31 PM

Boris have announced a show in Melbourne in June (playing Heavy Rocks (2002)), I can't convince myself to spend the money on it - either that or JPEGMAFIA.

Although I hope Isaac is ok (he seems to be struggling with mental health, as far as I heard), I'm kind of glad for this move from the vocals point of view. This might be a very unpopular opinion, but his crooning on the second record is quite unbearable to my ears. The declamation/spoken word type of vocals that he did on the debut were a lot more appealing.

Yes, from what I've heard he's not in a good way at all and I really hope that he's able to work through it with support (interesting that one of the guys on black midi's first record also left the band for similar reasons). But I'm agreeing with you on the vocal aspect; I'd be fine to see them go fully instrumental as they venture away from more linear and direct rock.

Bertrand 03.23.2022 02:19 PM

Hopefully I'll get to see Dry Cleaning (in Tourcoing, Lyon and perhaps Paris). The first opportunity was cancelled 2 years ago.

Then it'll be Los Bitchos in Rennes.
And I'll see Kikagaku Moyo for their last rour, in Paris.


Unfortunately there's a great festival in Angers (access from abroad might be a tad difficult) that takes place on dates that don't match my schedule.
Levitation-France : https://levitation-france.com/
You'll have Kim Gordon, bands mentioned above, Gilla Band, Black Country New Road...

choc e-Claire 04.14.2022 08:48 PM

If any of you are in the Chicago area, you can go see John Hinckley - yes, that one - perform live at the Logan Square Auditorium in a few months. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/john-hi...s-321574827967

Aw Dude....Ants From Up There is my AOTY. Crooning? Fuck no.

I agree that his vocals were more "direct" on the first album. I can't help but read too much into his singing/lyrics since The Announcement. Hopefully he can come back after a needed break.

This band sound like to the kind of people who were privately tutored and classically trained in the Clarinet from the age of 5, in the 6th spare room of their parents 4th home.

Severian 04.27.2022 06:13 AM

I’m seriously considering seeing in Pavement in Chicago in September. Really thinking hard on it. Would like to take someone with me, and whether they can go will probably be the determining factor, as I’m still quite spooked about Covid stuff, and lots of shows continue to be canceled last minute. :/

Bertrand 04.28.2022 04:08 PM

I've been considering seeing Pavement too, in Europe, but it's rather expensive. As Primus or Queens of the Stone Age or PJ Harvey. Or former garage man Jack White.

I understand Mylène Farmer shows being expensive, as there's a lot around her, but...


I'll be seeing Los Bitchos and Kikagaku Moyo on their farewell tour.

Yeah, some of the Pavement shows have tickets staring at like $200+ and that’s fucking insane. The show I’m eyeing has tix for $65, which is still wild to me.

Dr. Eugene Felikson 04.28.2022 06:52 PM

really wanted to see Gojira and Deftones next month but I dont have anyone to go with and i'd feel like a lame seeing a big concert alone

I have a friend who goes to concerts alone all the time and doesn’t give a single solitary fucking fuck. I’ve done it too. Maybe easier in small shows but in big shows nobody knows wtf is going on anyway so just get in there man

choc e-Claire 04.28.2022 10:52 PM

Considering Wavves in October (they're playing King of the Beach in full for what would've been a 10th anniversary show, but is now a 12th).

Severian 04.29.2022 06:37 AM

I think I’m gonna ask this person to this Pavement show and make a goddamn decision because tickets are only going to get more expensive.

Fuck you Pavement for not being together when I was 20 and going to shows every weekend and it was like $15-$25 tops to see Yo La Tengo or Sebadoh at the Showbox or whatever. FUCK!

Anyway, gonna have a decision soon

Drjohnrock 01.07.2023 06:40 PM

The next one that's definite is Loudon Wainwright III in Columbus,Ohio on May 10, 2023. Only Wainwright could make Mrs. Drjohnrock want to go to a gig that is 100 miles from where we live.

choc e-Claire 01.08.2023 03:04 AM

100 gecs in February, My Chemical Romance in March, black midi in April.

Oh shit I really need to update my past gigs list...

_tunic_ 01.18.2023 11:39 AM

Heavily considering to go to the Roadburn Festival in April.
Oiseaux Tempete is artist in residence, they'll play three shows, each focused on a certain period of their career. With special guests but no Jessica Moss so it seems.


Also playing: about a thousand other acts, including Big Brave and Brutus.


But I don't know yet, I hate festivals and I'll need to get the 4 day ticket which is 244 Euros. Which is a lot of money for just one band I really want to see. But then again, scroll upwards and Pavement costs about the same to see once ....

Diesel 02.03.2023 04:52 PM

Nowt worth gan te. All bands are shit

Preliminary thought: bar binge overdose action is in order
