Hmm I didn't even realise, but indeed, Finntroll played last year.

Yeah I saw Mercenary 8 times between 2004 and 2009. I was a big fan (and still are) of 11 Dreams and they were also awesome live in that line-up. I've also seen them four times in the new line-up. I still like them, but the magic is gone.

The magic is gone cus the original lineup is gone. Have you heard of Firesoul? It's Henrick (the founder of Mercenary) and whatsisname that was the amazing singer up to Hours That Remain, they are writing an album right now and its going to kick dick.

Ministry I've loved since the 80s and I've only become familar with DCFC in the past few years. (absolutely crazy about them - Ben's songwriting & delivery has such a sweet, quirky & subtle brilliance to it I think. :D )

Also would love to go to SXSW someday and have watched a number of those Austin City Limits gigs on TV. :cheers:


Thanks! I did notice going through the lists that mine was quite different than most of the ones posted here. With a few exceptions like your's, many of them are all metal. I listen to many different types of music. Living in Austin it is a big melting pot of lots of different musical styles, which is perfect for me.

I've been listening to Death Cab since their first album on Sup Pop records came out, so I've been lucky enough to see them 3 times, including the first time in a really small venue which was amazing. They kept playing bigger and bigger places each time, so been fun watching them grow over time. Their old stuff is still the best I think, but I really love the stuff he did on The Postal Service too.

I was just at the venue for ACL last weekend for the Gigantour show, and their festival is fun, although I can only take a day of it (too hot, dusty, crowded and expensive now). SXSW is my favorite time of year, and it is getting ready to kick off this weekend. It is a week of partying and craziness that is hard to do justice in a few words. There are parties going day and night (many for free with free booze too), and almost any place in Austin that can be turned into a venue is for the week. There are 1200+ official bands and probably another 500 unofficial bands playing all week. You definitely should come experience it some time. I've had to scale back my fun the last few years due to grad school, but next year I'll probably take a week off and do it full scale again.

I love mixing up my metal with a bit of the lighter stuff, the alt stuff, pop-punk, etc.

That's why I love the Australian touring festival Soundwave so much.

While I didn't go this year because I was too broke from 70k :P, if I had of gone I would have loved to check out RELIENT K and SWITCHFOOT just as much as I would have moshed my socks off to IN THIS MOMENT, TURISAS, CATHEDRAL, etc.

:shock: No, hadn't heard about that! If they start playing live and include the 11 Dreams stuff they've got an instant fan here.
That singer is Mikkel, he was in the band all the time except on the first and the last record.

Yeah, it should be everything up to 11 Dreams. Basically anything that Henrik was on. I'm stoked to hear the new stuff, but I'd love to hear some old too!

You're welcome! :cheers: I've never been to Austin (actually only been to Texas a few times - San Antonio & Dallas - many moons ago) - sounds like a cool city. With Chicago being such a big city - there are tons of music events going on all the time - love the choice and variety. That gig list that I posted on the first page of this thread from 2005 forward didn't include some of the free classical and other concerts that take place at Grant Park & Millennium Park in the summer....those are a lot of fun too.

The first DCFC song that caught my interest (just a few years ago) was Soul Meets Body (still my favorite I think) - it was on a music sampler CD that came with a music magazine we get where I work. I had heard of the band name before of course, but had never really checked them out. First album I bought was Plans which I feel like I must have listened to a 1,000 times :P - absolutely love it! The only two others I own are Transatlanticism and Narrow Stairs (just got NS since the cruise) - great to hear the early albums are so great too - I plan to buy those, as well as the most recent one, before I see them next month. Cool you saw them early on in their career. They are playing here two nights at The Chicago Theater - a fairly large venue - and I think both are sold out or nearly sold out.

Yeah, coming from a small town didn't help going to gigs, even if we had quite a few local bands (but wouldn't count their gigs as "gigs"). I used to drive my friends' bands to gigs in the 90's, so that increased my opportunities to see bands live.
And after I moved to Jyväskylä that has one of the best venues in Finland (Lutakko), I got to go see gigs at least once a week. Now that I'm living in the Helsinki metropolitan area, I get to see almost too many bands - it actually causes one to not go to gigs. A weird thing to say, I know, but it's the truth. There's a metal gig in some venue every night of the week, so you just start looking for the best ones and ignore others.

I'm from a big town, but metal band never came when I was a teenager and I wasn't allowed to travel to see them :cry: So I saw any band that came to Torino even if I didn't like them, just to go to shows. My first trip out of town was to Monsters of Rock in 1991.
Then I moved to Denmark and even if we get many more concerts here, it's very seldom bands that I want to see, so I actually go to more concerts abroad than in Copenhagen. In 2011 I think I only saw 5 gigs in Copenhagen and travelled to festivals or other concerts abroad at least 10 times :shock: And the most annoying thing is that all my favourite bands always include Italy in their tours now, but never Denmark. I'm cursed :cry:

This is true for sure. I grew in a city in a smaller more rural state (Oklahoma City), and when I was there I would go to just about any show that came through because shows were so rare. I couldn't really be picky. After finishing school I moved to Austin, TX which is crazy for live music. Often times you have to choose between the 2-3 different shows which would be great. You can go check out bands any night of the week, so you get to a point where you can't go out to shows every single night without getting burned out or completely neglecting other parts of your life.

^^^ :shock: :shock:

Woah - that's a lotta gigs! :bangers: :P

Actually, I'm not that shocked since I've known from your postings here that you go to a lot. :D And gee whiz! Wonder what your list will be like when you're my age. :beerwink: (but yikes - it's weird to think that many of the bands you listed will be long gone - yet not forgotten - by then, I suspect)

I actually wrote something up for a thread I didn't post yet.....a 2012 Music Year in Review thread (like one I did for 2011 a year ago)...but it's super long. :roll: May still post that....or maybe not. :P

The gist of the beginning of that post is that at the end of 2011, I thought to myself that I might never top that year for music experiences overall - in particular because of a few very special trips/festivals - the very first 70K (I highly doubt that any UMC cruise will ever top that one for me because it was the first time of such a completely unique experience), the very last Hole in the Sky in Bergen (a dream trip to a favorite country), and the 20th anniversary of Lollapalooza (with a killer line-up) in my home town, as well as so many great local gigs throughout the year. I think it is cool in a way since it was somewhat of an auspicious & significant year for me personally - my 50th!

So, now it's the end of 2012, and I've decided that I'm not going to make comparisons from year to year per se because no matter how much or how little I do of this or that thing (whatever it is) - it's all good in the end and I really appreciate all that I do, have been able to do, and all in all have enjoyed the ride immensely! :D :D

So, in short, 2012 was a great music year for me as well, for a variety of reasons and in some cases very different reasons than any year previous. Excited to experience what 2013 has in store for me!! :D

So I attempted to count last night how many concerts I've been to and I got up to 143. I thought it was more then that but I probably forgot some and that's not including local gigs.

That counts. Different sets = different gigs.

And that is insane.

EDIT: Can't be bothered to count today, not sure why I never viewed this thread before.
Bands I've seen the most are probably Holy Grail and Nekrogoblikon.

As far as more "famous" bands, I've seen Sonata Arctica either 10 or 11 times and Tyr a good amount as well.
