I saw The Flaming Lips in Ruisrock 2007, I had only heard maybe one song from them in advance and didn't have much of a clue what they were about. I had lost my friends at the festival, and I was all alone, but damn did gig was mindblowing. I became an instant fan, and I still think that they have had the best live performances I've ever seen.
I went to see them again in 2009, and they didn't disappoint me.
If they're coming to Finland again, I'll be there to see them!
If you wanna feel like a child again, go see their shit.
Skunk Anansie performed in Finland 2010, and I guess they hadn't done much gigs for years, and I don't know how they performed back in the days, but I really loved the gig, and This was probably one of the best gigs I saw in 2010.
I listened to their album before I saw them in Ruisrock 2010, but didn't like them at all. But when they actually played, I danced like a retard for the whole gig, and actually enjoyed them. I haven't listened them since thou..
Devin Townsend Band played two gigs in Tuska 2010, both were great. On the first day they played the Ziltoid The Omniscient, which was entertaining, but as I hadn't listened to that I didn't enjoy it completely. On the second day they played songs from their other albums, and they rocked! Devin is a real character, and it was a joy to watch him play.
Very energetic gig, seemed like all of the band members enjoyed playing. The performance was great, as they jumped above speakers and the guitarist hung from the light-frames at some point. Great stuff, I want to see them again! :)
