Ever go see a band without really knowing any of their tunes?
Last night I saw Uriah Heep. I'd checked them out on YouTube but don't really own their records. The concert was just $5 and across the street from my house. I went with some friends.
It is weird going to shows when you don't know the lyrics to every song. I'd say 90% of the time, I know every single song performed when I see a band live. That's probably because I'm only paying to see bands I really like, yes? Festivals are the anomaly of course. There are plenty of bands at fests I'll "study for" in advance and still not know songs. Then there are those rare instances when I wasn't really a fan to begin with and seeing the act live completely converts me. During those magical instances, I'll rush home, buy every album and become obsessed.
Question today: which glam band did you see live without really being a fan and were completley flipped during the course of the concert?
