Last year, in 2005, I went to my first real concerts. I even saw my top three favorite bands. (well sort of) (Note, these bands are not in this order on my audioscrobbler most played list or anything.)Stone Temple Pilots
- This is my favorite band of ALL time. For a few years now at least. Now, I technically, didn't see them in concert, and most likely never will. They've broken up. However, I am in love with Scott Weiland
, and would listen to any group he decided to be in. Therefore, I went out and saw Velvet Revolver
. The show was short, but seeing Scott Weiland[/artist on stage was so amazing. It's something I've dreamed about since I was in like, 6th grade. So seeing them was an awesome experience.
Tied for 2nd place in my top 3 artists are
My Chemical Romance
and Alkaline Trio
So it's very fitting that I ended up going to a show that had Alkaline Trio
opening for My Chemical Romance
. (although in my head, it probably should of been reversed. Alk <3's been around a lot longer than MCR.)Reggie and the Full Effect
Also opened up for mcr, and that's where I found my love for them.
Anyway, the concert was long, my hair got very messy and I cried during She Took Him to the Lake
because of how many times I had listened to that song and what it meant to me.
I LOVED the fact the MCR actually played a lot of their songs from I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love
, and they played Astro Zombies
(a misfits cover) and Disenchanment
, their new song.
Gee was so hilarious in concert though. XDD He really is a big dork.
Those were the best two concerts of the year. (I didn't go to that many in the first place, though. Even if I did, they still would of been the best.)
okay, now that we've recapped 2005, let me list some goals of people I'd love to see in concert. And hopefully in 2006 my goals will be achieved.
I'd love to see Mindless Self Indulgence
. I know I just recently discovered them, but they are so awesome. Their lyrics make me laugh sometimes, and I've listened to Faggot
probably more times than healthy. Plus, I've been watching some concert videos, and their concerts seem like they would be really fun. Bruising. But fun.
Second on this list is Placebo
. I lovelovelove Placebo. I've collected ALL of their music. Even the rare tracks. Sadly, I don't even know if they tour or not anymore. I love their music, but am not very up to date with the "fandom"/current news.
Other less important artists that still might be cool to see= The Used
, Fall Out Boy Freezepop
and I have a slight inkling to go see Louis XIV
