Live Performances Thread
« on: February 02, 2015, 02:59:06 AM »
Some of whats cool with music is the performance aspects. I like seeing energy, passion and how musicians like to back their craft. Some artists can really surprise you with their music when you see live footage or experience it (either turning you away from it, reaffirming your interest, opening your eye towards it or whatever it may be). Everybody wishes they could rock the stage & perform in front of others at least once in their life (maybe that could be a reason why some skaters love contests).   


-At the drive in - Arcarsenal (Sydney, Australia 2001): A friend of mine was way into their music years after the bands existence. Tried listening to it, hated it right away, wasn't really my cup of tea at all. Felt like teenage shit. Then seeing footage of their old performances really changed that for me. The guitarist's dancing/energy as well as the singer's. Never seen anything like them. Won me over.
At the Drive-in - Arcarsenal (Live @ Big Day Out '01)

-James Brown - Sunny (cover)(live at Olympia, Paris 1971). The song is soothing yet energetic at the same time. His dancing and singing tears the roof off.

-Ben Haenow - beatles cover. X factor Uk 2014.  I know, singing comps aren't cool, but this shits good.

-Death Grips, live 2012, NPR concert.  1st song.:the drummers raging (looks like that sesame street drummer character) , the mc (MC Ride) reminds me of a voodoo priest dancing around a fire with all the lights flashing.

-Meshell Ndegeocello - souls on ice (Glastonbury 1994).  She's a fierce bassist & the song grooves so hard. It's fun cause it cuts between shots of the crowd. Shows that a bassist can be at the front and still groove a show good.

-Not mentioned: Little Dragon & Future Islands. Didn't know how either performed, but went to a concert from each of them. Holy shit, amazing dancing and focus. Little dragon performed for like nearly 2 hrs it felt like. Frnt woman was dancing non stop.

these guys are a lot of fun and their chemistry is great ... this is a more or less impromptu birthday for the bass player, minimal pressure for the band, lots of fun

killer show ...Jaco is a god. Jazz players improvise and interact with each other like no other

At the Drive-in - Arcarsenal (Live @ Big Day Out '01)

seconded, i saw them at the engine room in houston and was able to watch them warm up because a friend of mine owned the club and it was a standout live experience for me

lately i've been really into this grimes performance

Grimes - Vanessa live for 'In My Room' by Yours Truly and MTV Hive

Devendra Banhart - I just feel like a Child Live

I thinks whats also interesting is how some artists sound evolves and changes overtime and how that changes their performances.

At he drive in ---> the Mars Volta: 
ATDI - One Armed Scissor (Jools Holland) The person at the beginning has some pretty interesting points.
ATDI - One Armed Scissor (Jools Holland)

Day Of The Baphomets-The Mars Volta, Henry Rollins show (2006)  I thought it sounded kinda bizarre at first, but after awhile it grew on me. They became alot more musically diverse & still trashed it.

Funkadelic ---> Parliament Funkadelic

George clinton and the Parliaments (1969). They were pretty soul/rock sounding earlier on. George Clinton looks so insane and full of energy. Their so much fun. at 3:00 is my favorite & could go good in a skate vid. they just have an air of coolness and emotional devotion.
George Clinton and The Parliaments 1969 (Part 1) 
I think their miming in this one, but you can still get a pretty good feel for their whole trip.
Funkadelic - I Got A Thing -1970

Flash Light (Part 1)- Houston 1978  Then they grew a little more deeper into their funk sound & their shows became bigger & more playful.

There used to be an HD version on Youtube but I couldn't find it. You can skip the ad with that X in the corner. The whole concert doc. this is from looks and sounds awesome.  Mostly I think I'm into Cliff Williams' (bass player) style and how he and the rhythm guitar player walk all the way back and forth from the drums for the chorus.

Another obvious classic, also from Paris. Sabbath in their prime.

Dr. Feelgood live in Finland (1975). Performing "She Does It Right", "Roxette" & plus an interview.
Their a British blues & rock pub band. The singer has fierce energy and the guitarist was known to be pretty mesmerizing for his playing and a gaze he'd get in his eyes. What's interesting about them is that they were somewhat considered Britain's next big thing until the Sex Pistols came on the scene and kinda ruined it for them.
There's also some cool story of how they came to New York during the height of 70's CBGB era and won everyone over (even though they had a  dissimilar sound for that scene).

there was that old video 'Cliff 'Em All' that had lots of Cliff Burton footage, even going back to when Dave Mustaine was in the band.

ooh, here it is! i used to watch this everygoddamn day when I was in middle school (btw it's get better at about 20 minutes in)
Metallica - Cliff 'Em All (Full DVD)


i always dig watching old footage of Ike and Tina Turner... Tina is a goddamn master of her craft and all that domestic turmoil she let out onstage, cause fuck she rules:

Ike & Tina Turner - Take you higher
