    Crying at shows is the fucking stupidest thing ever. I cant believe people admited to ending up bawling in the fetal position during/after Portishead. I dont give a fuck what you are on, get a grip.

    bawling in the fetal position or like sobbing and sniveling is weird.

    I have, at several concerts, teared up a bit.

    two examples:

    one- queens of the stone age, 2001. I was a huge fan, and actually totally osber at the time.
    the live version of 'the fade' hit just the right balance of making me groove and making me think, and to to put it in themost technical manner, my eyes got a little wet.

    during portishead, I was standing there with my girlfriend in my arms in front of me at the second railing (I can see clear over her head- it works out perfectly at concerts- at concerts that aren't coachella, I wear big steel toes and she stands on my feet the whole time- gives her an extra 3 inches or so.)
    anyways, yeah- 'roads' is a song that I always loved, and it was also the first (and initially only) portishead song she knew, from another mutual interest- tank girl. and it was performed really well, and it's a beautiful song, and we were there together, 2000 miles from home, at freaking coachella, and I teared up. anyone who tries to suppress emotion in a perfect moment like that has some serious issues.

    salah, please please remove the killers from your "so awesome I might cry" list, at least for public purposes...

    I dunno. I'm sorry. I just can't like them. I can't and won't. but I won't ask you to like venetian snares.

    i'm going to cry during the killers for what could've been...

    I had a hypothetical crying situation that I came up with in my head last year...

    During Death Cab's set I predicted Jenny Lewis to come off stage with Rilo Kiley and join Ben Gibbard and have them do Nothing Better. That would def. do me in.

    I also see potential for Beirut to make me tear a little bit if he plays at sunset.

    I like QotSA.

    And I think it might be during "Read My Mind" (killers song) that the waterworks starts.

    My eyes get watery at concerts.
    Depeche Mode at coachella
    The cure at the Hollywood bowl during lullaby
    Portishead during sour times.

    I think thats it.

    Nothing wrong with it.
    I agree with frozen that if you suppress it there's something wrong.

    During The White Stripes' cover of "Jolene" at Bonnaroo I felt the most unexpected waves of emotion. I had no idea how powerful that song was going to be, definitely got misty eyed

    god roads is such a heartbreakingly sublime song. im crying just thinking about it (only on the inside tho). i cry on the outside when i think about how i missed it being performed at coachella.

    Sigur Ros "Untitled 8"

    Magnificent things like these make me cry.

    for me it's always in combination with one or more other factors:

    a perfect circle at universal amphitheater - slightly drunk, intensely stoned
    the cure at arco arena - bad comedown, recently-ex girlfriend present with new guy
    sigur ros at coachella - no excuse necessary. (beautiful sunset?)
    sigur ros at greek theater berkeley - drunk
    nine inch nails at arco arena - stupid-drunk

    I've teared up at a few shows before, like Portishead, Sigur Ros, Arcade Fire...

    I could see it happening this year for Plainsong and Underneath the Stars by The Cure and maybe To Here Knows When by MBV.

    totally forgot arcade fire at the troubadour. i had never heard a single song of theirs, and being bored one night i agreed to accompany a friend of a friend to check them out since i loved the troubadour. i bought a scalped ticket for 75$ on a hunch that they would be worth it. wow was i right. the energy was so mind blowing, and came to a peak during 'wake up' -- mine were definitely not the only misty, smiling eyes.
