Haha, I understand your point. I saw them in Melbourne in 05 in the same stadium the Foo Fighters played a couple of weeks earlier. I was standing in the mosh before hand and it felt very underwhelming compared to the couple of weeks earlier.

That being said, it was an awesome concert for completely different reasons. I have a bit of a respect for Chris Martin.

Friday: The Vaccines, Foster The People, White Lies, A Perfect Circle, Crystal Castles, Muse (Aftershow: Tinie Tempah, Young The Giant)

Saturday: Super Mash Bros., Death From Above 1979, Deftones, Cee Lo Green, Atmosphere, Eminem (Aftershow: Fences, Titus Andronicus)

Sunday: City and Colour, Flogging Molly, Cage the Elephant, Arctic Monkeys, Explosions in the Sky, FOO FIGHTERS

Someone wanna suggest any changes so that I avoid disappointment? I mean, are there any musical acts on my list that just aren`t that great to watch live? Or any band that I should check out instead?
I'd see Black Lips on saturday. They call themselves flower-punk. Really fun live show. Highly recommended.

On Sunday, check out Best Coast. I'd describe them as Beach boys inspired fuzz pop.

I cannot WAIT for Sunday and bring on before or after concerts please! I was totally hoping the FB post meant something was going on. Guys that work security on our event in Chicago work security at all sorts of venues all over the city so fingers crossed something happens at one I have a connection to. Super excited, it's FOO WEEK!!

A "guy who knows a guy" has confirmed it, but still nothing official yet.

How do we get at it! So excited and of course I'll die if I know they are playing a small club and I can't get a ticket.

I feel exactly the same way.

I offered undying love or my right arm in exchange for information. So far, no takers. We shall see....

I'm digging around right now. I help run a major event downtown and my partner's husband is a cop who works events all over the city and all his buddies do also so i've got some feelers out to see what I can find out--

its been pretty hush hush until now, if it is true. it would be this Saturday after all. the metro says the farthest area away from the stage is only 25ft, is this true? and I too would be wicked depressed if I missed a club show, LA can't have all the fun.

I'm just worried about tickets. From what I understand, when Them Crooked Vultures played the Metro a couple of years ago, the show was announced last minute and tickets sold out in like 3 mintues.

I've wanted to see them in a small venue for years. The thought of not being able to get a ticket makes me crazy.

like I said earlier I'd be willing to give away my right to a plus 1 if someobdy would be willing to do the same. I just need to be in the building!

Yes, this is true. Metro holds about 1100-1200 folks between the main floor and the balcony area.

It's not that bad. When the place is full it doesn't seem like it's that many people.
