    Default The Fillmore Appreciation Thread

    If the Mezzanine gets its own thread, then it's only right if The Fillmore gets one.

    Definitely. I think we can best organize this new forum thing if we break threads up by venue. Also, I love your name. Where's your Hugh Honey?

    Fillmore's booking blows, now, since Goldenvoice and APE have gained power.

    Yeah, I'd agree for the most part, but there's a few gems every now and then. And seeing a good band there makes them seem even better.

    I'll be at Broken Social Scene, The Hold Steady and the Drive-By Truckers which will make for a pretty swell first week of May.

    Roky Erickson & Okkervil River should be pretty good too.

    Fillmore is nice historically, although I prefer other venues to be honest.

    However, Claypool NYE is always sick when it's held here.

    WHAT!!! The Fillmore is my wife and I's favorite venue and I couldn't care less about Goldenvoice and now to hear that they are fucking things up pisses me off to no end. I'll bet they don't even give out free posters anymore either.

    It's not being booked by Goldenvoice or APE. Goldenvoice has the Grand at Regency and Warfield and APE has Fox Oakland and Indepedent. The shows that normally would have been booked at the Fillmore seem to be getting swiped by the Fox Oakland and the Grand at Regency.

    The Fillmore is now more of a go-to venue for Bud Light concert series acts, Livenation tours, and crunchy hippie crap.

    There have been very, very few shows at the Fillmore lately that I've wanted to see because of those reasons.

    Shiiiiieeeeetttt, that sure does suck, we were looking forward to seeing shows at the Fillmore again.

    We've never been to the Grand and moved before the Fox opened, how are they? How much does not being all GA affect seeing shows at the Fox?

    It's fine. If you ever seen a show while seated in a balcony, it's exactly like that. The Warfield in SF is the same, as well. GA floor, seated balcony.

    Personally, I prefer GA unless it's the type of show where it's beneficial to be seated.

    There are always exceptions. Fillmore usually has 5-10 good shows a year. Which isn't a good hit rate considering that falls well below 10%.

    I know, I know, but that's a great one. I was really surprised when they didn't end up at a Goldenvoice venue.

    livenation is raping this venue. I can't believe it's a franchise now.

    I still like to go to shows there though. no matter how few they are,.

    LiveNation does seem to think that making it to be like the House of Blues is somehow a good idea.

    A "funny" sidenote; the first Fillmore I ever stepped foot in was the Denver Fillmore on its opening night in 1999 for the first incarnation of Trey (Anastasio) Band. I didn't attend my first show at the SF Fillmore until the Tragically Hip in 2002.

    Edit:

    Because I am bored, here is a list of shows that I have seen at the SF Fillmore:

    The Tragically Hip, August 2002
    Underworld, April 2003
    Goldfrapp, October 2003
    311 and Blackalicious, October 2005 #
    Echo and the Bunnymen, December 2005
    Goldfrapp, May 2006 #
    Jurassic 5, July 2006 #
    Beth Orton, July 2006
    Feist and the Long Winters, September 2006 #
    Vedera, Mae and the New Amsterdams, September 2006
    The Tragically Hip, March 2007 #
    Ben Gibbard, David Bazan, Jenny Lewis, May 2007 (on my birthday) #
    VNV Nation, June 2007
    Feist and Grizzly Bear, June 2007 #
    The Bravery, March 2008 #
    Death Cab for Cutie and Cave Singers, April 2008
    Ladytron, Datarock and Delta Fiasco, May 2008 #
    The Butthole Surfers, December 2008 #

    is anyone going to see Echo and the Bunnymen at the fillmore the monday after coachella? im considering it.

    And I know a lot of you purists hate that LN took the Fillmore name and slapped it on a couple other venues but you gotta hear me out. Living here in Miami Beach we never had any perfect mid-sized venue to book artists in. If they wanted to play it would have to be somewhere in Ft.Lauderdale and those venues are smaller than a typical fillmore

    but ever since they opened up the venue right here in the heart of south beach we've actually been getting good shows. Like the best shows this city has ever seen. just in march/april im going to see AIR, Wilco, Arctic Monkeys, Of Montreal and Band of Horses. Tons more acts that have come through over the past couple years.

    so im sorry if it offends you guys but im happy because of it. even though LN can suck a fat one

    They don't give apples at the Denver Fillmore anymore or at least the last few years I haven't seen any.
