Also if I remember correctly, just after The Dresden Dolls got off the road with Nine Inch Nails they did their own tour with Devotchka. I managed to get a private upstairs box with my girlfriend while they had a travelling circus doing performances with them between sets.
After both concerts I left actually feeling something, walking away into the night with a pretty girl and it seemed like the happiest, saddest thing. I like when concerts can still put you in a swirling, fun, drug-like daze even after they're over. Too many are just dudes hitting instruments and they don't actually manage to communicate anything or impart any meaning with the experience. It's jaded me because the whole thing is so shitty and typically boring.

Went to my first Rob Zombie show last night. Fucking amazing.
A small UK band called Basement. Most intimate show I've ever been to. 80 people, shin height stage, incredible energy, mic grabs and non stop sing-alongs.
