What's the last concert you went to? 2003-11-05 15:59:21 Thought it would be nice to know which bands the HA members go to see live, or for classical music fans, what they go to hear performed I went to see Sixteen Horsepower yesterday, great show. I actually nearly missed it - bought the tickets a couple of months ago, and it just slipped my mind. I suddenly realized which day it was around 10 o'clock yesterday evening (around two hours after the doors opened at the venue), startled my girlfriend by suddenly yelling "oh shit!" and running for the phone... While frantically searching for the tickets I managed to get a hold of my friend who I was supposed to see it with, who had also forgotten about the whole thing ... Fortunately the venue isn't too far from my apartment, and we both made it - the band actually went on stage just a minute or two after we arrived.I'm very glad I didn't miss it, they were brilliant. Dark, rough country-rock, very talented musicians, wonderful lyrics, and an audience who were very happy to see them made it all a great experience. They have a drive unlike any band I've seen recently, and the voice of David Eugene Edwards is remarkable. I also enjoyed seeing both a banjo and an accordion well-used on stage - two of the most underrated rock instruments in my book I've been listening to their records all day now, check them out if you haven't heard them yet. "Low Estate" or "Secret South" are both good places to start. Highly recommended if they're headed your way.
