Number one of all time for me is Pearl Jam! Love them and have seen them something like 7 times in concert. They rock.
Also have seen (in no particular order): Red hot chili peppers, system of a down, flogging molly, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains (new edition, would have loved to have seen original lineup with Layne), Sean Wheeler and Zander Schloss (They are really cool), Chris Cornell, Marc Lanegan, Primus, Metallica, Eagles of Death Metal (Definitely worth checking out), Radiohead, and probably some more I'm not remembering.

I would love to have seen Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Eric Clapton (in his prime, i know he's not dead).

I would still like to go see Wolfmother and the black keys.

and Muse, I forgot them. But i don't like their newest album... I heard that the lead singer just had a baby, and thats why this new album is so quiet and subdued, and all i can think about when I hear the new songs is him trying to sing quietly so as to not wake his new baby... lol

Blink 182 or Sum 41. Would be pretty intense to watch.

Also, maybe Matchbox 20, Rob Thomas (from what i've seen and heard) sounds amazing live... Even though I'm not a huge fan of their songs.

alright...so saw Enter Shikari today (along with other bands)...review time!!

First band - Letlive.
Band - 8/10 - They did an absolutely amazing job. I had no idea who they were but I was definitely getting into their performance. And the singer put on an amazing show..claiming on a bunch of stuff and interacting with the crowd greatly
Crowd energy - 4/10 - Very few people new who they were, and since they were the first act no one really had much interest in them, which was quite a shame
Crowd Activity - 3/10 - Only like 15 people were getting into it. Should have been much more
-Got a poster of theirs after the show...the singer was at the merchandise table so I asked if he would sign it (which he happily did) and then I shook his hand and told him they did an absolutely amazing show...I loved the sincerity of his Thank You

Second band - I See Stars
Band - 2.5/10 - One word, headache. They performed well...for their music. Just not my cup of tea. And when they started rapping..
Crowd Energy - 5.5/10 - Was surprised by this..I had no clue who this bad was, but a solid 1/3 of the people there did
Crowd Activity - 6.5/10 - Had some good sized mosh pits going (also..this concert further reinforced the stereotype that Americans are terrible at mosh pits)

Third band - Enter Shikari
Band - 9.5/10 - There is a reason they won Kerrang!'s Best Live Band award twice...this band knows how to perform. The energy from the band mates, even when they weren't moving much at times, was unbelievable. The sound was purely awesome as well...a must see live band
Crowd Energy - 7.5/10 - Was actually surprised at how many other people were getting into...I thought I'd be one of a few...but there was quite a good amount of people rocking out.
Crowd Activity - 8.5/10 - By far the best at the concert, the mosh pits were insane (I mean...they actually became proper mosh pits at times!)...so many people jumping to the music..pretty sure I was forced to dry hump a few people with how everyone was pushing towards the stage (and got dry humped myself a few times -_-)
-Went from near the back of the crowd to the front...I wanted to get close to that band and nobody be stopping me!
-Was drenched in sweat after they got done...and I was **** proud of it

Last band - Falling in Reverse
Band - 7/10 - Not my type of music, but they played quite well. Not much activity from most of them though, mainly the singer and bassist (also...the singer's spinning of the mic from the cable got old quite quickly...maybe got exciting a bit again around the 50th time..but not for long)
Crowd Energy - 9/10 - Not surprising, mostly everyone there was there to see this band. Just me and a few others just kind of like "meh"
Crowd Activity - 2.5/10 - Surprising right? You'd think with all that energy there'd be quite a lot of activity...but not the case here. Yeah there was a good number of people body surfing, but other than that and people holding their hands up for the music, nothing much else happened. Took until the about the 4th song for a mosh pit to finally form, and even then it only lasted about 20 seconds. A second one formed about a song later, lasted only like 10 seconds.

In my opinion, Enter Shikari stole the show, after them I'd go with Letlive. for their performance
