What bands have you seen live in 2012? Also, bands you're planning to see? Less of a bragging thread, more of a feedback thread. Give a rating for each show, where it was, and some comments. Sort of like mini live reviews. Could also help if you give feedback to people about shows they be going to see. Also could help AP.net-ers meet up if they happen to be attending the same gigs.

January

February
Dry The River - Cypress Avenue, Cork, Ireland - 9/10. Intense live band, set was a little too short, but all of the songs were well played. The singer has a surprisingly strong voice

March

April

May

June
Justice - The Marquee, Cork, Ireland - 8/10. Not my usual type of music, but they are excellent and what they do. Ruined slightly by the fact that almost every person there was stoned, but their beats are pretty good. Also, the light-show was amazing

The Specials - The Marquee, Cork, Ireland - 7/10 Enjoyable set, with a pretty good vibe. The sound was pretty low, which made it get boring at points. Also generally refrained from playing hits, and as a casual fan I wasn't sure of many of the songs, but it was a fun show.

Bill Wells & Aiden Moffat w/ Human Don't Be Angry - The Triskel Arts Centre, Cork, Ireland - 9/10 A very intimate gig, Aiden Moffat was his usual intense self and the show was pretty delicious. Human Don't Be Angry is a sort of one man band post-rock act which, while it is interesting to hear, leaves a little to be desired live. Big problem was that only a handful of people in the audience actually knew what they were watching, as the audience was largely made up of socialites.

July
Low- Cypress Avenue, Cork, Ireland - 9/10 Crazily good. Despite only being a fan for a few months, the show was amazing. A proper rock show, Low were spot on with everything the did. Even took requests at the end.

Jamie Lawson (w/ Fred) - Connolly's Of Leap, Cork, Ireland - 6/10 Fred were strong, but Jamie Lawson basically ran out of time, and insisted on re-starting a song multiple times as he thought he was out of tune. Less of a professional show and more of a busking indoors situation.

August

September

October
Beach House (w/ Holy Ghost) - Opera House, Cork, Ireland
Lower Than Atlantis (w/ Time Is A Thief) - Cypress Avenue, Cork, Ireland
Every Time I Die - Cypress Avenue, Cork, Ireland

November
Bon Iver - The O2, Dublin, Ireland
Benjamin Francis Leftwich - Cypress Avenue, Cork, Ireland

Been very slack this year..

fun. the hifi, melbourne.. 10/10 finally got to hear nate in real life.. only played 14 songs, seemed to go by in a flash but its not like they have a huge catalogue.. Brilliant stage presence, thay really love what they do.. opening act local band boy in a box were really good gonna have make time to check out their studio efforts..

So 2012 is going to be pretty quiet for me as far as live shows go but 2013 is shaping as a huge year with blink-182, gaslight anthem and brand new heading down under amongst others.. yay

All the stuff I've been to so far (minus local shows):
http://www.last.fm/user/Goldmember1213/events/2012

Pretty decent amount I guess once you work in school/work/not being able to go to stuff. A lot more than past years since most shows where I'm from are 18+ and I didn't turn 18 until the end of last year.

I Am The Avalanche - /w Red City Radio, Hostage Calm @ The Magic Stick Lounge in Detroit, MI. 8.5/10. IATA puts on a hell of a show and it was crazy at this small venue. RCR was a pleasant surprise and Hostage Calm was as good as they always are.

April
Comeback Kid - /w Living With Lions, Such Gold @ The Magic Stick Lounge in Detroit, MI. 9/10. First time seeing CBK and they fucking ripped. Can't wait to see them again. Was my fifth or so time seeing LWL and probably the last time with Stu, they were good. I don't care for Such Gold.

May
Jack White - @ Masonic Temple in Detroit, MI. 8/10. This was the first show I have been to in 3 years where I had to sit in a seat, and it felt very awkward. Regardless, Jack puts on a great show it was a good time.

June

July
Warped Tour - A Loss For Words, Every Time I Die, Anti-flag, Fireworks, New Found Glory, Title Fight, Polar Bear Club, Make Do and Mend @ The Palace of Auburn Hills in Auburn Hills, MI. 8/10. It was about 100 degrees that day, almost making being outside all day unbearable. I ended up leaving early because I couldn't stand the heat anymore. It was fun though.

Refused - /w OFF! @ The Royal Oak Music Theater in Royal Oak, MI. 10/10. It was Refused, 'nuff said. Best show ever.

August

September
Frank Turner - @ St. Andrew's Hall in Detroit, MI
The Gaslight Anthem - @ St. Andrew's Hall in Detroit, MI
Alkaline Trio - @ St. Andrew's Hall in Detroit, MI
Ceremony - @ Mac's Bar in Lansing, MI

It's actually the second time I've seen them and they are astounding live as well. Being a huge fan of Keith's Black Flag stuff and Circle Jerks, it's really cool to see OFF! because it's like jumping in a time machine for the night and going back to the mid 80's when that kind of stuff was first making an appearance. Keith is a living legend, so just having the privilege of seeing him live is amazing. I would definitely recommend trying to see them live if you can.
