    Did someone take their parking spot? Lots of rage. :rant:

    Were you able to get close enough to be spit on also? Good times. But, I would rather pull all my toenails out with a pliers. I like most genre's of music, but the screaming thing just never did interest me. From the looks of the crowd, there was no shortage of those that enjoy it. :rock:

    Concert ticket prices are out of hand and the fees are maddening. Wife bought 3 general admission tickets, means you stand for the entire show. The tickets are $168 each after fees total bill $729.

    Taking my son to his first concert tonight. We're going to see Wage War and A Day To Remember on their acoustic tour at the Chicago Theater. Should be a fun time! I figured it would be a good intro to the concert world for him since it's an acoustic show with assigned seating at a world-famous venue. Plus, it's always fun to be down on State Street during the holiday season. If we get downtown early enough, we may check out the Christmas tree, grab a bite to eat, then head over to the show.

    We went to Million Dollar Quartet at the Apollo Theater in Chicago about 6 years ago and I think that was one of the coolest venues I have ever been in. Lots of history in that room for sure. The show was also fantastic. We used to enjoy a trip or two to Chicago every year until things got sketchy and we had a few issues there. There was a drive-by shooting in front of the hotel and our friends car was stolen, you know, just your basic Chicago thuggery stuff. :biggun:

    I used to go to the city quite a bit in my younger days - lots of Cubs games, concerts, musicals, restaurants, trips to Navy Pier, etc. Now I usually get down there 2-3 times a year for different things. There's a lot to love about it but a lot to hate as well. I can only take it in small doses.

    Looks like I'll be going to the Papa Roach/Falling in Reverse show at the Aragon Ballroom in February. I like that venue a lot, but it's in a sketchy area and not a very fun drive.

    I respect any band that plays instruments rather than auto tune and a drum machine beat.

    I finally found my calling for a music scene…New York Hardcore!! My son and I fell into the scene back in December when we went to Long Island to see one of my favorite bands, Life of Agony. Opening for them was Kings Never Die, Sworn Enemy, and Madball. I was blown away by all the bands and the crowd was so into the music, hardly a cell phone in sight. The opening bands are a big part of the NYHC scene. The HC pit is brutal, with people windmilling punches, roundhouse kicks, and taking all their aggression out on an invisible enemy. With 20 people doi ng that in a small space, choas ensues. No fights, just people enjoying music and expressing themselves in harmony.

    The next week we went back to NYC in lower Manhattan to a club called Bowery Electric on 12/18 2-7pm to see Dieja, Spoiler NYC, and Sworn Enemy. It was a monthly free show by Drew Stone, a promoter and singer in his own band. My son and I arrived a few hours early to avoid traffic and ensure we got in. Drew was outside the front door smoking a butt, and saw us walk up. He was beyond friendly, asking us if we were there for the show. He was blown away when we said we had driven down from RI and let us in early. We met many bands, helped them carry stuff in, and set up on stage. The NYHC music scene is alive and well. If you were a fan of the 90s music scene in small clubs, this is your calling!! Of course I’m too old and broken to get in the pit, but the crowd is so diverse in age, skin color, and ethnicity it is awesome to see!
