Hey all,

I was just thinking, what are yr. favourite SY live moments of all time?
I mean from anything you've seen/heard. Boots, youTube, actually seeing them live... whatever man! It's all good!

Hopefully post yr. favourite moments up as well to share with everyone else?

(illustrate favourite moments of actually seeing them live with the closest fitting pic or something)

I'll post mine up soon once I can think of my favourites (so much stuff to wade through in my mind... it's all so good!)

Look forward to hearing from everyone.

Pittsburgh 2003- free show in Point State Park. There was hedge in front of the stage, so at one point during the outro to Karenology they started rubbing their guitars in it.

Same show: Thurston,"we'd like you to all come up to the front of the stage, but there is this garden and there are guards that will throw you up in the air like matrix"

Pittsburgh Mr. Small 2005: Thurston asked for a pick and I threw mine up onto the stage. It was an eminence "patriot speaker" pick, and so Lee picks it up and says "this ones got the American flag on it" and hands it to Thurston and they proceed to rock out.

Seeing them in Toronto, 2006... (I've said it before, but it's still soo funny)
They seemed to be getting to the point of a big burst of noise/climax, and Thurston jumps, and upon landing, lands on his patchcord and rips it from the guitar, ending with a really cool, but anti-climactic, bzazazazadasxsax-jick.

the one from Dublin in 06. in noisy outro where Thurston's guitar fell off the stage, smashed guitar neck, coz stage was bit high, then trying to get offstage to get his guitar he wet himself in water tank under. that's the funny one. pity it's not captured, so funny.

was at that 03 pittsburgh show, my favorite part was if you recall before sympathy for the strawberry kim asking jim if he was alright, it being so hot out and him back in those days wearing 3 layers of cardigan and nearly passing out

the two that really stick out though were DC 06 where Thurston dropped his guitar on my head as seen here
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RY7R-rm9n4

and Portland 06 which Lee came on here and said was the best show of the tour, if you haven't heard it, get a copy

Sacramento - July 06 at the Empire.

It was during the noise freak out part of the show. Thurston stuck his guitar on one of the fixtures extending out from the ceiling of the venue. He took his hands away and the guitar was still stuck there. I believe someone posted a picture of this in the Sonic Sharing section. I also remember him jumping out onto the crowd during this part too.

what a hard question!!! i think that was the first time they played in Mexico in 2004, i really wasn't there, but everyone says was the best concert ever, ans of curse, i think the concert of february 24 of the past year, because i was there!!!!best moments: shaking hell, bull in the heather, teenage riot, xpressway to yr skull, reena, well i think the whole concert...mote...every song, jajaja to tell the truth i wrote a song about that moment,(yes, i'm mad)here is:

The ritual

And you are there, and I am here.
My breath is going, I canít see clear.
But then you sparkle and shine the room.
The heaven fall down, thereís no more gloom.

My ears are trembling, itís angelís song.
The devil came up and sings along.
The prostrated subjects, the crowd is mad.
Your sound is insane and so sexual.

Itís a cosmic experience, a mystical noise.
My lips and legs are moving at once.
Our dancing bodies belong to you.
You give your music in offer too.

Hereís hell and heaven in humanís land.
There is no good or neither bad.
The art is art and nothing else:
Spiritís orgy, a total cleanse.

Itís a love to beauty, a love to crap.
The nicest moment Iíve ever had.
Shaking heaven, shaking hellÖ
As your harmonious notes is floating in the air.

Your rhythmic bases and magical chords,
Makes our heartbeats go faster and stop.
This fantastic ritual has finally end,
Weíll wait for the next time you come back again.

I wish I could have seen them live.

This also makes me think I need to get more video bootlegs.

I only have one right now...from (I think) 2003...

I was at that show! It was the best show I've seen of SY or any other band. I thought it was awesome when Lee played Happy Birthday for Coco during the noise outro part of Mote. Later he mentioned to the audience that he had done that and then mumbled that the we'd be able to just listen to the recording of the concert later and hear it.

At the Daydream Nation concert, when SY'd be playing a quiet/melodic part of a song, then the song would speed up/get louder (eg. Teen Age Riot, Candle etc.) and Thurston would start headbanging, jumping around, swishing his hair around.
During the encores of that show, they'd be playing stuff from Rather Ripped and Kim would do her spinning dance.

The first time I actually saw a member of SY in the flesh was in Liverpool on the Goo tour when Lee came on and sang backing vocals with Teenage Fanclub. Everything Flows I think but it was a long time ago!
