    The drummer in our band sees Tedeschi/Trucks as often as he can. He's at their show in NYC tonight.

    I've seen them twice both times with him. They're certainly good enough to see repeatedly. He's been to many, many shows.

    I'll see the Subdudes whenever they come around but it's not quite the same thing.

    I wish I had the time to got to more shows. There are several I'd see every time I could. Work just really cuts into my free time. :D

    When I was in college I used to follow Bb King (RIP) and Bob Dylan. Haven’t seen Dylan in years, and sadly His Majesty passed away. These days I see Robert Cray, Tab Benoit any time they are nearby. There’s a few others plus some guys who grew up in my area that are not well known, but I support them when they are back in town.

    Back in the 2000's I used to see Porcupine Tree every time they were in the area (NY tristate area). They played smaller theaters (Town Hall, Nokia Theater) so it was always awesome. Same with Dream Theater when they were coming up through the ranks in the 90's. I saw them open for Deep Purple/ELP. As good as DP and ELP were, Dream Theater was the reason I was there. I wasn't alone :).

    I followed Pearl Jam extensively during the 03 summer tour and parts of 05-06 (about 15 shows).

    I went and saw Kings of Leon in their infancy way back in 02 or 03, and subsequently followed their shows through their rise and now plateau.

    I never pass up a RHCP concert.

    And I go to every Wilco concert I can attend within a four hour radius.

    Kaori and I followed Johnny Thunders and the Oddballs on their last West Coast tour, back in 1989, before my 20th birthday. We made it to gigs in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Berkeley. We met him after the Berkeley Community Center gig. That remains a thrill for me.

    It was this tour, just in Berkeley and not Manhattan:

    I don't but my daughter is a rabid Bad Religion fan and follows them on tour whenever they hit the west coast. She has seen them over 30 times now. I wish I still had that much energy!

    I've never followed a band like that, but back in the 90s and early 00s a bunch of my friends followed Phish around religiously. One of them plays guitar in a Phish-esque band called Grand Theft Bus now, which has its own loyal following (though not on the same level as Phish).

    I went to an eff ton of Phish shows in the 90s. Drove from FL to Maine and saw them all over Florida. 1997 was a GREAT year for Phish.

    i did not have dreads or anything like that though. I was pretty plain looking. I just liked the music and it didn't cost too much money to go to a Phish show in those days.

    There are bands that when they come to my city I go see every time.

    propagandhi, mastodon, and sage Francis

    all three put on great shows, all three are different styles, and they simply just move me. so I dig them.


    if all three were playing at the same time and I had to choose.. it would probably be Sage Francis first, simply because I have met him a few times and he is probably the nicest human ever with a heart.

    propagandhi, I have only met the bass player Tod. but damn it, if every time I see them someone is cutting onions in the crowd and I get a little misty in the eyes for many reasons.
    mainly.. their music helped carry me through the darkest part of this young life of mine... so even though it brings back some VERY heavy memories. I welcome them and embrace them

    Mastodon. What can I say? their music is awesome, they are all really talented, and I dig them. If they come by. YEAH I hit them up.

    I try to see at least one Gregg Wright show when he comes to Louisiana. Probably seen him 6 or 7 times in the last few years.
