I knew about this, but I've no idea why I didn't already post it.

The Damien Rice concert is fantastic. I've seen him live twice in the real world, and he's on form in Amsterdam.

Cool, the Residents. I'll have to check that out when I get a chance.

This is great. Thanks very much. I'm finding a lot of bands that I haven't seen live and may never get the chance to see that I want to check out.

This is a great link.

However, I am not really the biggest fan of recorded live concerts. A steadfast rule says that concerts are great when you are there, experiencing the collective effervescence, the lights, the noise - the whole experience. Then, when you hear it on a bootleg later on, it is just so lacking. Where is the dude smoking a J, giving you a high five? The over-priced merch, getting beer spilled on you?

That being said, acoustic based bands (such Damien Rice) don't generally apply to this rule.

If you're not keen on registration/webplayers and all that.
