Agreed. Also any type of acoustic or classical music is fine. I'd like to see these guys live.

Really depends on the artist. Went to see Ice Cube couple of years ago it was pretty good imo. Best performance ive been to.

Also have been to Meth and red pretty good vibe/experience as well.

Wiz and Wayne something that i wouldnt want to see live.

Ice Cube still raps in between those kids movies that he does?

I don't necessarily disagree with the sentiments of the OP.

There are a lot of artists who can make fantastic records but who don't really have the musicianship and dedication to make great live show. I don't really expect much from a live show these days.


Classical music and Jazz are almost always amazing live, so that's the exception.

It was in 2008 to promote his album Raw Footage i think. Just saw he has another album coming out this year.

Raw Footage is a very nice, IMO the best rap album of 2008.

Still need to see a rock show one of these days. Missed out on BRMC, Tame Impala and a few other bands recently. Never listened to the genre until a few years ago. Gotta see drums and guitars live.

Rap probably does suck live but it all depends on who's performing and the size of the venue.

Seeing Nas at a small sardine-can type venue was unreal...he sounded exactly like on record and you could hear every lyric.

I also saw Kurupt and Tha Dogg pound in an even smaller place, up in Whistler...that was just as insane.

The Roots were probably the best because of the band...another small venue.

Stadium concerts blow.

If it's got musical instruments playing live nothing beats a concert. If it's a recording of music made by a synthesizer and other electronic bs with the artist outrageously lip singing then it's gonna blow.

Most old school hip-hop is pretty good live. Big Daddy Kane still give a great show.

I'm talking about current artist. I wouldn't go to A Big Sean show live if I got in free.

BRMC is a solid live show. I saw them about ten years ago, I barely remember it, but I think it was OK. Like at St. Andrews in Detroit maybe. I noticed they were on tour. Was thinking of driving down to see them at the 9:30 Club.

Very true. Most of the time I will only go see a show if the band/artist at least has some buzz about being a good live show. The only time I'll see a show on a whim now is if its a jazz show just because live jazz is really a place where good musicians can shine. There are only a few acts out there that I would go out of my way to see live and one is Christian Scott.

^I would kill to see that live

The only time I can really remember being floored by a live show is when my dad took me to see Springsteen 7 E Street when I was young.

I've seen a lot of R&B and Jazz concerts, not impressed either.

a) I wonder how many concerts you have been to. Of groups with actual musicianship

b) you do have a point about the large festivals, particularly the ones with a broad musical footprint. A lot of those bands arent all that great live, everything is a hassle, etc. But, its still can be a great scene. In those cases, its really more about the experience than the actual music.

I have no idea why I would waste my time watching a concert on a stream If you want to listen to music just search it up on youtube or download it. Go out more OP

If you're going to be on the computer with either option, I don't see what's the big deal about choosing to watch the stream.

There's still a bit of ambient feel to the music even though you aren't there in the flesh, and you get to see scantily clad chicks interspersed throughout the footage.

Watching some of the Coachella sets has helped me discover a few acts that I didn't care to check out previously because of genre bias. I'm now a fan of Metric, Bats for Lashes, Passion Pit, and Of Monsters and Men.

Earl Sweatshirt wasn't bad either even though his attire was beyond ridiculous, and I couldn't make out all of his lyrics too well.

A Blues band is the best to see live. Small venue, and close to the musicians. Nothing more you could ask for.
