Most fun concerts: almost all the Kink's concerts




Oh, good to hear! I have their greatest hits album and I love to listen to it. I'm going to have the peppy little melody from 'Come Dancing' in my head today - what would make you smile more than that?

Amie,

I have a fairly rare 2 CD live set of the Kinks. It is no longer available to buy. It is not a bootleg either, top quality. It includes "Everybody come dancin" as well as a ton of excellent old Kinks stuff done live.

If you want I could burn and send you off a little present.

Glad to find another Kinks fan! I saw them twice, and then I was able to catch Ray Davies on the Storyteller tour.

And you're absolutely right -- their shows were easily among the most fun I've had. Both were outdoor shows, and both were on horrendously rainy nights. In fact, the show in Santa Fe was cancelled and rescheduled in Albuquerque a couple of weeks later because it was so bad. No such luck in Atlanta, though. But I can't tell you what a kick it was to be sitting in Chastain Park, soaked to the bone with a stupid smile on my face and singing along with Ray and Dave while they delivered a full rendition of "Singing in the Rain". And I'm also not sure how I would have made it through high school without my copies of Muswell Hillbillies or Lola vs. Powerman & the Moneygoround.

Wow! The Kinks, that sure brings back memories of cruising around back in High School, drinking a few cold barley pops, and cranking my Alpine stereo. I sure miss those days...

Great Party music...

i can think of a number i'd like to see:

PAST
Beatles - would have been fun to see early in the career with all those screaming nutbar fans, but i prefer actually hearing the music
Doors - of course just to see Jim in all his drug haze glory
The Sex Pistols - early club days when punk was just breaking, never was or is a such a groundbreaking definitive few months in music. Changed everything forever.
The Clash - see above
Nirvana - it would have to be early Seattle days, just before or after Nevermind....to get a feeling of that band that was just about to blow the music world away


PRESENT
Bright Eyes - i get the feeling that i may never have a chance to see him in Saskatoon. An all acoustic set would be amazing
Pearl Jam - can't see these guys too many times, they seem to be getting better with age, though would have been fun to see them just as they were breaking with Ten
Others - Fiery Furnaces, Arcade Fire (sold out before i could get tickets ), Apples in Stereo, Supergrass, White Stripes, Radiohead, Spoon, New Pornographers, etc, etc. I'd better stop, could think of a million.

I was fortunate enough to see Radiohead while they stopped here in August of 2003. The show was simply phenomenal. I would certainly see them again if they come back.

I say if because Salt Lake City is not a major stop for a lot of bands. The previous time Radiohead was here was in 1993.

Anyway, if you are even remotely a fan go and see them if you get the chance.

I saw Bright Eyes in October at the Bridge School Benefit Concert outside San Francisco. Emmylou Harris did a few songs with him. Very excellent! I'd definitely see him/them again.

Peter/David, both of you are quite lucky, chances are slim of seeing either of those performers in N Sask any time soon. I have been able to enjoy live performances of both on DVD/TV so that was nice - though certainly less enjoyable than the real thing.

Is it just me or does anyone else think Connor Oberst is the greatest songwriter today???

He's pretty damn close, if not the best. But then again, I don't find his political views offensive.

I would choose the following Stevie ray vaughn, deep purple,jimi hendrix, and ccr. Obviously many many more but these would be at the top of my list. No particular order just all of them playing in the same venue would be amazing
