    That show was my only experience at the Maritime Hall, it seemed like a cool venue. That evening they had speaker pods set up on either side of the bar, which faced into the crowd from behind. The Orb took full advantage of the set-up, which definitely made for an awesome aural experience. Here's hoping the Orb reschedule their tour soon.

    You'll be happy you did. I wish I would have started this process sooner. Especially considering I have so many gaps in my list.

    You 18 year olds, cut my list off at 2004, and only read prior. Those are the shows I'd seen before I was 18.

    Go to college, I guess that's the moral of this post.

    I am gonna really put together this list very soon. Right now I am trying to track down shows that i know had no stubs, like stuff at Spaceland, viper room, the smell,amoeba, etc. Some of it is surprisingly easy and some of it is pretty hard because I can remember time periods but not really years and dates for all these.

    if a show had a ticket though, i have that ticket, organized in book (with the exception of one show I can think of at the wiltern where they took my ticket to give me a wrist band and never gave it back)

    I won't bother trying to list the hundreds of local band and friend's bands show i've been to (unless they played with somebody significant). I've been to the roxy, whiskey, derby, the gig, king king, old town pub, and all these other places so many times i can't even count to even try to track that stuff. And then there's the backyard and house shows...

    Now that I think about it, I really should have started a seperate local bands concert history. There is actually quite a lot of good bands playing in the local scene here and I am almost positive a couple of them are going to make it. I think I might start this sometime soon...

    Please do not take this as argument for including all local shows, merely as a reasonable question when searching for some standardization: Where do y'all draw the line between local shows and not local shows.

    If I see Calexico does that count as a local show. They are from Arizona (Tucson) and play here a lot but they also tour. But sometimes I see them on not a tour.

    On September 25, 2007 I went to a show at the Trunk Space (tiny venue, <100) where the headliner was Andrew Jackson Jihad, a local folk-punk band. They have since done at least regional tours. The reason I went was to see The Gunshy, a dude what is from Pennsylvania. Sometimes he tours with a band, the times I've seen him have been just him solo. QUESTION: Does this show count? What is the significant factor(s) in determining yes or no.

    Two more situations to prove the rules:

    July 5th of this year I went to Modified to see Abe Vigoda. I saw Step Cousins, the Chandails and Underwater Getdown, all local to Phoenix. I'm fairly certain there has been neither national releases nor even regional touring from them. Then I got tired and left before Abe Vigoda came on. What does this count as?

    September 2002 I flew to London and took trains/ferries/buses to get to Lancaster where I went to the Yorkshire House and saw Mob Curious, Puma Sutras, 3D Tanx and the final show by Angelica. All four bands were local to Lancaster. Angelica had played some shows in London and John Peel liked a few songs they did but they were hardly more than a local band. What does this count as for me, who, to clarify, is not from Lancaster.

    I don't think you really need to worry about rules...this is something for people to peruse and think, "oh cool this guy has been to a lot of shows" or "this guy is prick and is just trying to show off how many shows he has been to"

    either way...just make your list and don't worry about it

    I am not planning on changing my list. I count all of those shows along with ones that are unambiguously local shows. But I am interested in the discussion and seeing what other people do.

    If I see Calexico does that count as a local show. They are from Arizona (Tucson) and play here a lot but they also tour. But sometimes I see them on not a tour.

    On September 25, 2007 I went to a show at the Trunk Space (tiny venue, <100) where the headliner was Andrew Jackson Jihad, a local folk-punk band. They have since done at least regional tours. The reason I went was to see The Gunshy, a dude what is from Pennsylvania. Sometimes he tours with a band, the times I've seen him have been just him solo. QUESTION: Does this show count? What is the significant factor(s) in determining yes or no.
    for my own sake, "local shows" are just meaning bands that were never signed or never went anywhere, or i didn't know who they were, or friends' bands. Like my Friends are in a great band called The Outer Seventh and i've seen them probably close to 45 times in the last 6 years...it means little in the context of my "shows" list to anyone else though, and I couldn't even beging to remember that shit anyway. Another friend band was a metal band called Turn Of The Screw, who i easily saw close to 40 times over 8 years as well.

    And then there was the year i spent ahnging out at king King pretty much every week where they had rotating house bands and there were a handful of bands that i barely remember their names that i saw more then a dozen times apiece...

    Suffice to say, i think it's how you personally want to quality what and why something is worth putting into the list and why you're making said list

    I have far too many friends in bands to list any of those shows...I used to live around the corner from a few bars in downtown Orange, and used to regularly stop in to check out shows, almost every night of the week...then my next apartment was down the street from this place in Lake Forest called the Gypsy Lounge, which has bands every night of the week...now my brother lives walking distance from Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa

    there have to be 100-200 shows at those places alone that I would have almost no chance of recalling many specific details from and no ticket or documentation to support my hazy memory

    Thats total b.s. if they end up on a label and end up touring, as stated above with other reasoning...


    So if a ''local'' band you were friends with and everything, you saw them play a ton, then they got on a major label and all that, million record selling etc etc, all those shows do not count?

    I think whether or not a band is known outside of their hometown (by people such as Coachella board members) is the perfect barometer to distinguish between a "local" band and just a band from your hometown. Or, whether or not the band tours nationally, could be another way to put it.

    I plan to make one of these as soon as I can. I am kind of inspired. My list would be pretty short, yes, because I'm only 19 and started attending shows when I was 16. But its the kind of thing I really want to hang onto for the future.

    I see a common thread here.
