Shows I Wish I Was At
You can never see every band you want to. Sometimes it's because of the unfortunate timing of your birth. Other times it's because you didn't get into the band until it was too late to see them in a live setting [during their prime].
Here's a pointless, self-indulgent list of shows I wish I had seen in my life. Some were possible, I just missed the boat, others took place in a far away time.
The Impossibles - (Never) Say Goodbye
This footage is from their last show ever in their hometown of Austin, TX. I got into this band in high school, which is right at the same time that they broke up. They're one of the few pop-punk bands that I've tolerated for more that a couple years.
The Dismemberment Plan - The Ice of Boston
Again, I got into these guys during high school, so they probably got word and decided to break up. I love that the idiot yelling things in the crowd has to add "Yeah, I'm from Philly!". I swear Philadelphia is home to the worst audiences in America. God bless 'em.
Cap'n Jazz - Que Suerte
Broke up while I was still but a lad. This is my favorite Kinsella band.
Pixies - Hey
I would love to go back to "Doolittle" era Pixies and see one of their shows. How sweet would that be?
I would also like to see Lifetime live right before they broke up in the 90s. Although I could always see them live now, because they're back together. So, maybe I will.
