3 shows over the last couple weeks in Boston. Kudos to anyone that has heard of these bands. I love live music but, I feel like set lists are getting shorter now than they used to be. Anyone else feel that way?

They do have one of the best video game related music videos

Looks like a fun show.  I'll have to look up those bands.

I'm hoping a certain set list is short in early June... I'm taking my daughter to see Twenty One Pilots and I just made a Spotify playlist of their show (which does not change at all from night to night) and this is a terrible band.  Usually I can get into whatever band she wants me to take her to - Panic! At The Disco was awesome earlier this year even though I never would have gone if it wasn't for her.  Twenty One Pilots is garbage though.  Going to be a looooong night...

I'm going to see Twenty-One Pilots tomorrow night with my daughter and 2 of her friends.  I may not make it.  Usually I can find some redeeming qualities in a band but I'm struggling.  It's like they bought a drum machine and just decided to read their middle school poems on top of the beat.

Am I crazy?  Last show we saw together was Panic! At The Disco and it was great.  Twenty One Pilots is just bad - how are they so popular?

I think it's because albums are shorter than they used to be, and nobody buys them (well I do, and others do... but it's all about the hit now.) With the single song access that we have now, people just aren't buying an album for a song and finding 6 more that they love like the good old days. They hear a song, they use shazam or similar to find out what it is, and they buy that one song. I think this is affecting how much music is being released and how much bands want to expose to potential fans - if it's not in their best catalogue they might not think it's in their best interests to share.

The National was really good.  Short setlist though - under 2 hours.  There were also problems getting into Prospect Park - the line was like 45 minutes!  Anyway, it was nice to be outside listening to one of my favorite bands, eating artisan tacos and drinking some craft beer like a true hipster.  All I was missing was the beard and skinny jeans.

I could see that in some cases. It is just frustrating to see bands now that I saw 20+ years ago and their sets are now at least 4 songs less than they used to be. Springsteen plays for 3 hours and the bands I want to see it feels like I am lucky to get 16 songs and 75 minutes out of. Give me 20-22 songs and a solid 90 minutes of music and I am happy.

Most recent show. Early punk band, The Undertones. 30+song set. Great time

@JMB: set lists for non-top-tier bands have averaged 40-45 minutes for as long as I've known. Then you have the advanced age of many of the old crews......not to mention time between showdates.

$250 dollars on tickets to see The Cure in October.  Apparently some clown called Childish Gambino is opening for them.

 :dunno

That’ll pretty much knock out the old goth bands from my list.  It was these tickets or a Vectrex this morning.   :lol

Oh man that's a lot.  I'd like to see them but too rich for my blood.  It reminds me of when Guns N Roses toured a couple years ago... just too much for a night out.   :hissy:

That's encouraging. I'm taking my daughter to see them later this year. I agree the thought of just two guys on stage like that is a little odd.

It takes some getting used to but overall it was enjoyable (and I didn't know ANY of their songs until the week of the show when I forced myself to listen to their setlist).  They put on a good show and there's even fire so... yeah.  If you google their setlist you will know what to expect.  It does not change from night to night.  I had it queued up on my phone so I knew exactly what was coming and how much longer we had to go.

Well, I spent about $500 to stand in a field with 100,000 people and watch The Cure on a giant TV screen.

At least I won’t ever get goth blocked again.  Or have to listen to any more “wow you haven’t been to ACL!?” chatter.

And whatever hell dope they all smoke in Austin smells like skunk piss.  And does not provide contact highs.

 :cheers:



Also saw Metric.  So that’s 2 bands off my DDR cabinet in one shot.

That's awesome!  I'd love to see The Cure one of these days and I'm probably running out of time.

In other concert news, I bought 4 tix to see the Hella Mega Tour or whatever it's called.  Next August in Philly.  Green Day / Weezer / Fall Out Boy.  Should be fun - I'm taking my kid since she loves Fall Out Boy and kind of likes Weezer and Green Day even though they are old people music.  Ha!
