I love these guys. I apparently just missed them in Orlando, but I have to see them. They're on my "have to see in concert" list. And here it is:
Top 10 Bands That I've Never Seen Before That I Really Really Wanna See Live:
As much as I love her, and would love to see her silly Sri Lankan dancing, she's now a mother, so I'm guessing she's either lost her edge, or has an even harder edge, but will still be writing kiddie songs. We'll see.
9. Blizten Trapper
8. Sufjan Stevens
I really hope Suffy hasn't completely burned out. If I were to ever do a list for "Biggest Burnouts after a Classic album", he's probably win it.
As much as I love them, I wonder how good they'd be live? I can't picture it being that exciting, but you never know. Want to see them tons anyway.
I can't believe I have not seen them live. They come through the Tampa area probably once a year, and it hasn't happened. That's a bad Zach.
5. Built to Spill
Though I have no factual knowledge of this, I imagine these guys are fantastic live. Songs like "Going Against Your Mind" or "Conventional Wisdom" would be fantastic.
Here come the more popular acts though. Beck has to put on a good show, and he's got so much material to work with. Too bad he's a Scientologist.
3. The White Stripes
Gotta see Jack White before I die. Meg White, well, sure.
2. The Flaming Lips
Have to see them. Must see them. Must see them.
1. Beastie Boys
Back in the olden days, the Beastie Boys used to have a huge inflatable penis above their stage for dramatic affect. Sure, now they've matured, I won't get antics like that, or girls dancing in cages, but I will get an entertaining show. If I could see them in NYC, that would make it perfect.
