*Loud grunting noise*
« on: December 01, 2005, 02:58:34 am »
Just got home. Saw Opeth this evening. the were fucking GODLIKE! Easily the best live musicians I've had the pleasure to see. If they have any gigs near you in the future, GO FUCKING SEE THEM! You won't regret it. Mikael Akerfeldt is fucking brilliant! It was worth the £20 just to hear him talking between the songs. "If any of you want to get naked, you can". I need sleep now.

PEACE OUT, YA'LL! ;D

I was meant to go see them with a mate not so long ago, but both of us were broke at the time so I never happened.. dodged a bullet there.

Is it x number of gigs by a single band? Or just gigs in general?

It would make a whole lot of difference to me. I have seen a couple of bands more than once, but not more than 2 or 3 times per band. I have been at numerous gigs, though.

If we're not counting the number of times you've seen one band, then are we counting festivals as a) one gig, b) one gig per day, or c) each band for itself?

If a), my score's 10ish (possibly more - I forget. And excluding concerts I've been working at), if b), it's slightly more, and if c), I'm well above the Royal Highness.

Music festivals. Like Roskilde and stuff. Where a number of different bands play over a short period of time. It's like numerous gigs, all crammed into a short timespan.

Are gigs for more "underground" bands worth more?
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

RULES :

- Everytime you went to a gig counts for 1 point ( same bands count, 2 bands playing at 1 gig don't count for 2 points)
- Festivals count.
- Run around naked +3 points
