this thread is dumb but i remember watchin the old micheal jackson videos and peoples were crying for some odd reason i figure i'll do some crying at coachella take some video of it and post it somewhere, lame but that's my middle name
bawling in the fetal position or like sobbing and sniveling is weird.
I have, at several concerts, teared up a bit.
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...
we all have our dirty little secrets, man. and you know I love you. but... D:
some body told me, that something and something that naa na na na na, that looked like a chicken dressed up in drag gear...
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.
Andrew...that would've been amazing...the DCFC part...
and I know I teared up during Portishead...I was begging the universe to let them play on forever...it was so beautiful
This year, I don't see anything that'll bring me to tears... :-/

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.
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
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.
