1. Silence in Black & White - Hawthorne Heights
I've been listening to Hawthorne Heights for seven-ish years and finally got the chance to see them live. For only $12! It was everything I'd imagined. They were great live, vocals got lost sometimes in the music but that could have been because they were playing a venue about the size of a living room. It was also comforting to know that there is a scene of some sorts in this hellhole where I live. On a bad note though, we three were definitely the old folks at the show since everyone else seemed about 14. They had three other bands playing with them, but we (bro, sis and I) went late and only caught After Midnight Project. Nothing memorable but they had lots of energy and were committed to their playing.

2. Muse EP - Muse
By far, far, far, far the best live performance I have witnessed. The vocals are amazing, the playing incredible, but the visual spectacle! Insane. And the sense of camaraderie, young and old, men and women, black, white, hispanic, metal-heads and jersey shore look a likes. All types of peeps love Muse. Totally worth the ten hours in a car with my bro to Michigan (when we could've gotten there in like seven hours if he would have followed my directions tyvm).

3. Swoon - Silversun Pickups
Saw Silversun Pickups with Muse. I had heard a couple songs and was "eh" about them, but they are more enjoyable live. The vocals bugged me a little, but I think it's because the singer hasn't gotten in his groove or confidence to sing that high yet. He doesn't fully own it yet.

4. Tear The World Down - We Are The Fallen
Saw them with H.I.M. They were good, played well and all that but they had the poor girl practically shouting. She'll mess her voice up singing that aggressively when she really doesn't need to.

5. Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfri... - Fall Out Boy
Ah, Fall Out Boy. Commence your laughing now and get it out of the way. Done? Good. Now then, they were great live. I've been a fan for awhile but never saw them live (mainly because I didn't have money, which I still don't). I didn't have high expectations because if you see them on TV or youtube they don't sound that great, but really they just don't transfer well. They were really good live, had a great stage setup/show.

6. While the City Sleeps, We Rule the Streets - Cobra Starship
Saw CS with FOB, and honestly I thought they were better than FOB. As soon as they hit the stage Cobra Starship is in hyper drive and don't slow down. They sounded good (Gabe was a little pitchy here and there) and they really got the crowd going. I challenge you to not dance.

7. The Party Scene - All Time Low
Saw them with Fall Out Boy. Again, didn't have too high expectations, but they were really good. And funny. Enjoyable and I'd like to see them again.

8. Metro Station - Metro Station
Saw them with FOB. Didn't expect much, didn't get much. Thankfully they only played like 25 minutes and it went quickly. And I never want to see Trace Cyrus with his shirt off again. Ugh.

9. Hold on Tight - Hey Monday
Saw Hey Monday with FOB. Wasn't expecting much but they were decent. Nothing really exciting but I give them props for doing their thing.

10. Mindless Self indulgence - Mindless Self indulgence
Saw them on Projekt Revolution. I honestly don't know what the hype is about. I'd heard their music and didn't like it. Thought I'd see how they are live, and didn't like it.

11. Saosin - Saosin
Saw them on Projekt Revolution. Well, saw the very last song. My bro and sis didn't want to go earlier so I missed Madina Lake, The Bled, and most of Saosin. I was pissed. I still am pissed. From what I did hear they were good, which is good because I really like them.

12. Death to Analog - Julien-K
Saw them on Projekt Revolution. Hadn't heard them before so I didn't know what to expect but they were enjoyable. Chester from LP sang with them. Lots of energy, slightly dancey.
ErikMarie's rating:

Again, I don't get it. Saw them on Projekt Revolution. I didn't like what I had heard, but thought I'd give them the benefit of the doubt. No. Just no.
ErikMarie's rating:

I've seen H.I.M. twice. The first time was on Projekt Revolution. They sounded great, but they didn't look like they were really into it. Some say it's because they were playing amphitheaters, some say it was because they played outside (in the sunlight), and some say it's because singer Ville Valo was newly sober and still getting used to it. The second time I saw them was at the Chicago House of Blues and they were headlining. It was an amazing show. They sounded great, they looked like they were having loads of fun, and they finished with a killer cover of "Rebel Yell." It was such a difference seeing them in a smaller, more intimate place like HoB, So definitely see them in a smaller place. At HoB I also saw Dommin with them. They were alright, I honestly don't remember much.

15. Makedamnsure [CD 1] - Taking Back Sunday
Saw TBS on Projekt Revolution. Once again, long time fan first time seeing them. And I was not disappointed. They sounded great, looked great, were full of spunk and were tons of fun to watch.
ErikMarie's rating:

Oh my Gee Way. Haha. They were so good live. Is Gerard the best singer, no way. But the commitment and emotion he projects is astounding. And their stage! I wasn't even that close and I could feel the heat from the pyro. I must see them again.

17. Linkin Park - Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park
Linkin Park, obviously the headliner at Projekt Revolution. All I can is that my hands hurt so bad from all the clapping and my throat was sore from all the singing/yelling, and my hearing was temporarily impaired but it was worth it. They put on an amazing show, and they have by far the best crowd participation I've witnessed. And they song a great of their old and new songs, plus I got to hear my current favorite song (at the time) 'The Little Things Give You Away.' Fantastic.

21. Opeth - Collector's Edition Slipcase - Opeth
Saw them on Gigantour. I can't really describe how brilliant they were. I felt like a deer in headlights: I could only stare in awe.

Saw them on Gigantour. I don't like Lamb of God, but I give them props because they bring it. Hard. They do their thing and kill.

23. Megadeth - Greatest Hits - Megadeth
Headliner for Gigantour. What can I say? Besides the fact that I was close to stage and could see the sweat on Dave Mustaine. Mmm...Dave Mustain...

24. Respect - The Very Best of Aretha Franklin - Aretha Franklin
Aretha Franklin was the first concert I saw. I can't remember exactly what the concert was, some special that was recorder for TV. But anyways, come on it was the Queen of Soul! Of course she was amazing.

27. Toni Braxton - Toni Braxton
Saw her with Aretha. Not much a fan of her music (there are some songs I like), but she puts on a performance for sure.


I can't remember who else performed at this thing. Now that I think about it though I think Shemar Moore was a host or presenter or something. He was there. Mmm...Shemar Moore...

Pretty easy to follow. There were some bands that I couldn't find on here so I just have them under whoever was headlining. ^_^
