Favorite Band Experiences-unranked ( I Tried to, It's just...too Hard to Commit)

This could get loong so grab a tasty beverage if so inclined
  1. 1.
    Love their music, but throw in some creepy vaudeville and massive amounts of pyrotechnics and I'm over the moon
  2. 2.
    I've seen them thrice. Last year I did the meet and greet- Sin was super cool, and Cesar Soto was a sweetheart. Cesar actually ran up to me after the show and picked me up in a huge bear hug then vanished- most awesome fan appreciation moment EVER
  3. 3.
    Nine Inch Nails
    First time- Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa- Reznor swung out in front of me from this rope and ladder deal, and I snagged a fragment of his fishnets ( which some horrible person stole from my dorm a year later). The next show was a huge arena with Marilyn Manson opening. Side note: Pretty Hate Machine is the best album ever made ( yeah, I said it)

    Peter Murphy
    Oh, that voice...those eyes...met him his last tour, random guy had an extra VIP meet n greet ticket and my husband was awesome and didn't give me grief for accepting the extra ticket. Pic is of that meeting with my big stupid permagrin I kept for days!

  6. 6.
    Duran Duran
    I still have my scrapbook- such a Durannie. Some friends pooled together and bought me a ticket for my 30th birthday- all five original members! I was so worried I'd missed the window but they were perfection ( sorry, Roger, list app cuts my photos off).
  7. 7.
    Type O Negative
    Swoon swoon swoon swoon ( RIP Peter).
  8. 8.
    Concrete Blonde
    Just bad ass
  9. 9.
    Reverend Horton Heat
    I've seen 10? 11? shows, and they always kill it
  10. 10.
    The Red Elvises
    "Rock and Roll from Siberia"! These guys get the best mixed crowds.
  11. 11.
    Richard Cheese
    Wrong has never been so right.
  12. 12.
    Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
    Great, but even greater live.
  13. 13.
    She Wants Revenge
    The sleeper entry. Slightly sinister with an eighties nod is okay by me.
  14. 14.
    The Damned
    I mean...it's freaking Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible!
  15. 15.
    Henry Rollins
    Power...intensity...rage...wrapped up in a muscled shell with little black shorts.
  16. 16.
    They Might Be Giants
    A gigantic conga line with almost every audience member.
  17. 17.
    Mojo Nixon
    A friend and I in a dive bar in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Drinking beers with Mojo in between sets while he played with my hair. Seriously. Turns out, he's even wackier looking now than he used to be, so here's a pic from his earlier days ( when I would have recognized him).
