Sorta blew the bell curve for SHOWS.

I saw Floyd on that same tour too in Providence. Definitely a great show.

So what's up with these Polyphonic Spree people? I saw a commercial for one of their albums and I swear, it was the work of Satan.

The Flaming Lips RULE, plus, Wayne Coyne is from Oklahoma, so added props to my man.

And the Spree ARE the work of Satan. A big angelic choir wearing white, singing with religous fervor and working for the devil, bobby.

The Spree is pure joy in musical form. It's giddiness and madness. Yes I am certain that there is some sort of weird cult brainwashing happening, but I can't much say I care, they just make it all feel gooooood.

And the Lips are the best live show on the planet right now, bar none.

See, I find stuff like Pink Floyd to be vastly overdone, both musically and visually. I like my shows to be more understated and personal.

This from someone whose first show experience was Rush in '91, so I'm quite familiar with big, over-the-top shows. And they just leave me cold.

You would love The Dream Theater. Their shows are very plain and simple. At least at the 9:30 club in DC, all they had was 3 HUGE projection screens that would show videos to go with their music, cool screen saver type of psychedelic stuff, and web cam closeups of the band.

A great show from some great musicians. It was about 3 hours long (It had to end at 11:30pm due to DCs anti-noise laws) and they only took one 15 min intermission.

Depche Mode had a pretty understated show by todays standards. I saw them in 98, and all they had was a very small laser show. The laser would beam into various glass shapes and fog and gave a neat effect. Nothing too distracting.

Okay then, I can see where you are coming from then. I like a show, when I go to a concert. I like LIGHTS, LASERS, and shit blowing up. (for most artists)

I saw Prince on his last BIG tour and he had a simple stage with simple lighting. Best concert I have ever been to, but to me, it was because of his musicianship.

Another great stripped down show I saw was Melissa Etheridge on her LIVE AND ALONE tour. VERY minimal stage, and almost no lighting effects, yet, she put on a great show.
