What band are you dying to see live in concert that you've never seen before? Would you travel to a different city or state just to see them?
Oddly enough,  the bands I want to see in concert or have seen in concert already aren't my favorite bands by any stretch of the imagination.  I'll get in the spirit once I'm there, but tbh I've never seen the appeal of standing around for hours waiting to be deafened by music I could hear on a cd at home minus the drunks and BO. I used to LIVE for going down in the pit-probably for the same reason I used to get suspended every other week for fighting when I was in elementary school. I was fourteenish when Columbine happened...I slipped under the initial hysteria of "zero tolerance" policies by about six months.

That whole part of my life is a horrible mess I can hardly even talk about to other people unless it's through the anonymity of the internet...idk if it's because I'm still ashamed of how close I came to getting sent to therapuetic day school, or if it's because talking about all that inevitably leads to the question "Well WHY were you so angry?" and that's something I really don't like trying to explain...maybe another post. Anyway, back to the concert question.

 I'm an adult now or something, for some reason my employers frown on my coming to work with a black eye or broken toes every other week. Maybe since I can't mosh now, I'm just bitter and I don't want to see everyone else having fun. Maybe I really don't see the point in going if I just have to sit queitly.  I don't know.

Anyway, best concert I ever went to, My Chemical Romance. My sister wanted to go. Maybe it was just all the sweaty girl hormones in the air, but I totally got into it...those guys put on a damn fine show.
