Every few years someone declares rock dead but rock and roll goes on. Sure we’ve got plenty of electronic music today and different beats filled with invention, but there’s nothing like rocking out to an enthusiastic band playing guitars and drums with an occasional keyboard or saxophone thrown in for good measure.
I’ve been lucky enough to be near the front of live performances of all these bands. I’d highly recommend any of them. Live performance gives me a much better idea of what a band is all about then listening on my headphones or watching a highly polished video. Live is exposed, raw, and direct. Seeing a great band live with a few hundred others all getting into the feeling is some of the most fun you can have. Buy a ticket and go!
