Mumford and Sons started a recent concert by saying, "Stand up if you want to. F--k the people behind you."

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

 :D Well, there you have it!



Corndog, I've been on a Lone Bellows jag and am really loving their sound. My favorites so far are You Never Need Nobody and Take My Love. Gorgeous! What a happy memory for you. I'm so glad this concert was your first date!

Monty, of course that was your favorite concert! I can think of nothing more perfect for you, except if I could travel you back in time to July 4, 1966, somewhere along the first base line in Shea Stadium.

Col., Luckily youtube has concert footage from 2008. Is that when you were there? I recognize Omar and Cedric. :) That's some crazy high energy! I know so little about the band still, but my favorite so far is L'Via L'Viaquez. I know one A Perfect Circle song, so it's my favorite so far too. Weak and Powerless. I also think it may be hard to beat.


Fun evening of music. Thanks for sharing!


Edit! youtube cylced over to APC's 3 Libras. That's a contender!

In general, I prefer to sit in most concerts regardless of how much I may or not move.  I think the most frustrating concert I was at was The Firm (Jimmy Page and Paul Rogers) back in the mid 80s.  It was at the Rosemont Horizon outside of Chicago and we had floor seats.  Buying a scrawny high school kid, everybody else was much taller than I was and stood on the chairs.  For a good part of the show I had to stand on top of the back of the folding chair in front of me and the back of my folding chair to see any of the show.  somehow I managed not to fall and break a leg but back then I would have been sober for the show

I am not likely to really dance at a show, I'm still a little stiff and self concious.

So happy Sandy! We do really love The Lone Bellow. They are maybe my favorite band to share!
