This is going to be an interactive WWTFUS:
Tell us – or let us actually listen to/see – the best LIVE concert/show you ever saw, or WISHED you saw. Tell us what made it great for you, why you still remember it, or why you’d love to have been there when. If you can find them, leave links to videos and I’ll use them in future WWTFUS, okay?
I wasn’t at the Neko gig below but damn, from the sound of it, what a fantastic show. A sweltering hot February night in Melbourne, the iconic Prince of Wales pub packed to the gills with drunken Aussies jostling each other, slopping beer and belting out declarations of ardor and/or song requests. I once heard Case describe how awkward and scary the transition that came with success was, when the band started getting booked into actual seated venues where people sat and listened quietly, politely. Contrast with this scene below: sure, it’s loud, the air quality problably sucks, the sound’s all muzzy, but this was the first offour encores. That’s what happens when the crowd and the muscians are both having a great time.
Oh, and bicycle messenger porn banter, FTW of course
