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.

La Roux in an intimate setting would be really cool.
I'd be willing to give Lana Del Rey a shot too despite her SNL showing.
Amy Winehouse if she were still alive.

EDM events/festivals are the best live music events ever.

Maybe it's because I'm a musician, but I wouldn't go to a concert unless the band/performer playing was a virtuoso in his/her own right. Some bands are good, but not necessarily worth seeing live. For example, Pearl Jam I would only go see for Eddie Vedder's vocals, Stone Temple Pilots I would go see for everyone except Scott Weiland, and GN'R I would maybe only see just to say that I saw Axl Rose in person. As far as virtuosos, I'd love to see Steve Vai, Tosin Abasi, Mike Portnoy, Kevin Keith, et al. But yeah I'm not much of a concert-goer.

I don't know why you wouldn't like it. Certainly, some bands don't sound great live, but that's the risk you take. And you can still have fun if they don't sound phenomenal, because these guys are entertainers as much as performers. Case in point, George Thorogood didn't sound great at all when I saw him, but it was still a lot of fun. I've seen AC/DC three times (with varying degrees of sound quality, although they were pretty good every time), and you're there for the show as much as the music. Same with Hank Williams Jr, he sounded pretty good but it was fun just listening to his stories, watching him perform, etc. Guy was a true performer.

Just because a guy sounds great doesn't mean it's going to be a super fun show. I'm looking at you John Fogerty.

I really don't get how you can't be a fan of live music unless you hate the band you're seeing.

I think it's a bit too much to say you must hate a band if you don't appreciate their live stuff. Now, if I'm a huge fan of a band, I'll go see them rain or shine. However, if I'm new to or indifferent to a band, it depends, you know?

I think you misunderstood me a bit. I didn't mean hate a band because they suck live, I meant to say to hate live music in general, I just don't get it. Unless you hate the band you're seeing. Post was directed at OP, not as judgment on your comments.

Another band that was really good live was Korn. Seether is also surprisingly good live.

I experience feelings of hermitage every once and a while, but even when I like to get out I still don't care for hordes of people.

That said, Wu Tang Clan bout to hit the Coachella stage!!! YouTube is my best friend.

STP has a good mix but Scott is usually ****ed up and sings whatever lyrics he wants. Can be annoying. Same goes for the few time I saw him with Velvet Revolver.
