Rich Entitled White People And The Shows They See Live

HEY Y'ALL

I went to concert tonight, so this here is a CONCERT THREAD

I went to see Brandi Carlile at a place called the Hoyt Sherman, and it was swank as. Here's a picture I snapped of the view I had of the stage.
Spoiler:

The opening act was Katie Herzig and her band, and she was pretty awesome! I didn't really get a picture of her, though, and even if I did it'd be too tiny to tell.

Brandi was amazing, totally got everyone involved and just plain rocked the place. She did some cool stuff, like doing a song completely unplugged, got the entire audience to the notes in a song like some sort of chorus, and even covering Jackson and Folsom Prison by Johnny Cash.

Most of the pictures and videos I got aren't really post worthy, but this is my favorite song and she did it really well! You can sort of see her, but hopefully the sound will be enough!

Also the lady who sat next to me was a total bia and bitched out the usher for seating people who came a little late because he had to stand in front of her when there was a mix up. First she yelled "WHAT THE FUCK GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE WAY WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE" and then got up and gave him a talking to, I'm pretty sure. She was unpleasant! There was also a guy who was close to the front who kept holding up his hands in some sort of Nazi-esque salute but I regrettably never got a picture of him.

So, SE++, what concerts have you gone to, or are going to?

    my reaction exactly

    it's the first time he's played anywhere around here though so I really want to go, and he has two opening bands so the price tag isn't as bad considering that

    I went to a weird ballet revue in December? Seoul doesn't have a lot in the way of the live music scene. For some reason no one I particularly want to see tours here. Gooo figure. But I think I'll be going to the symphony if I can swing it, expenses-wise, in the next month!

    (To be fair to Seoul, there are some mildly entertaining jazz clubs, but I'm not currently able to imbibe, so what's the fucking point.)

    there's a little dropdown box on the page of each specific show that asks if you'll be attending

    if you mark down "yes" or "maybe", the show will be saved under the events tab in your profile

    Went and saw Tegan and Sara last week, they were super cute and chatty and all around classy ladies.

    Next week it is Dan Mangan followed by the Fray.

    I have not listened to The Fray, but my girlfriend is all about them so that's what that is. :winky:

    Yeah, they have a pretty great stage presence and Sara (or Tegan...) is pretty chatty with the audience, but in a not-boring kinda way.

    I'd highly recommend getting some tickets.

    i've seen tegan and sara three times and they are so fantastic live. tight musicianship, great stage presence. their between songs banter could pretty much be recorded and sold as stand-up.

    e: tegan was the slightly more chatty one last time i saw them, though sara did tell an incredibly long story about her asthma and the apocalypse.
