1 Alice In Chains – I’ve never been to a show that I couldn’t take out my ear plugs between songs. The crowd was THAT LOUD.
2 The Heavy – A spiritual experience. Throw in Thee Emergency opening and that was a night at the Croc.
3 The Kills – When a band connects with an audience like they did you remember it for a long time.
4 The Thermals – A religious experience and “Now We Can See.”
5 Ladytron – Some goofball walked away from the box office after failing to get a ticket before the show and said, “I can’t believe they sold out.” I thought, “You idiot. They always sell out. Every time they come to Seattle they sell out. You belong outside.”
6 Dead Weather – I had never seen Jack White live. Cross that off my “things to do before I die” list.
7 Gossip – I was almost crushed to death in the crowd – totally worth it.
8 Rev Horton Heat – I see RHH every time they come to town. They NEVER disappoint.
9 Blackeyes & Neckties – Theater rock from Bellingham. Scary. Loud. Scary loud.
10 Sleepy Eyes Of Death – They turned me around on this genre of music. SEOD are awesome.
