Thread: Greatest Regret

  1. #1

    Default Greatest Regret

    So I just discovered a group called Subtle. And I'm exactly 1(?) year short of my discovery. I knew they were at Coach while I was there, but I didn't know ENOUGH to go and check them out (plus they were hella early that day).

    This seems to be happening every year I go. I hear about someone at Coach, and then afterwards I come to appreciate their music.

    Who is your greatest regret in missing (Yes, I did see Daft Punk.) at Coach?

    that's exactly why this year, i'm listening to a lot of bands that i haven't had much interest in but have heard good things about. i.e. interpol, the decemberists, placebo, regina spektor, and the rapture.

    Yeah, I'm doing the exact same thing, fasttrack. And I keep going, "how did I miss this?" when I discover stuff that really hooks me.

    I think if I remember correctly, I missed Pinback for British Sea Power in 2005. I also missed TV On The Radio last year.

    It's better to regret something you have done, than to regret something you haven't done.

    It's a toss-up for me. I would have liked to see both.

    I don't have any really horrible regrets.

    I missed Daft Punk at the Bang Music Festival last November. Was there for their opening track, Robot Rock, but in my jaded state of mind at that point wandered over to another stage and forgot to go back before their set was over. Yeeeeeaaahhh...I basically deserve to be shot for this. Stupid stupid stupid...excuse me while I go bang my head against a wall right now...

    I regret wasting so much of the day waiting for Madonna, only to have to listen to her asking, "Do you like my ass??? Hey, I said, do you like my ass???"

    Hehe. I actually really like Pinback, and have seen them live a couple times. But I guess everyone has an off night or two.

    It was probably just me. My friends really enjoyed the show. But, you know, everyone is entitled to liking whatever it is they like.

    I wish I would have seen Mogwai and Imogen Heap last year...but there are always conflicts and you can't see all the shows you want to. Missed Damien and Matisyahu also.

    I regret that Axl Rose is a fucking tool land caused a riot in St. Louis which caused him to get arrested before a show in Chicago with the Smashing pumpkins back in 1992. I was standing outside the venue with thousands of others when some guy with a megaphone announced the show was cancelled. Fucker.
