The best bands that played tight and put on a good show was Rancid and of course Bad Religion! The pits were huge and never did I ever walk out of there without a bloody nose, shredded knuckles and of course looking my PageNet Pager somewhere on the beer soaked concrete.

Those were the days

Bad Religion shows are awesome. It does get pretty intense in the pit during their set.

You like some good bands; kudos.

Best concert I ever went to was Voivod, Anthrax and White Zombie. Amazing atmosphere and very good show put on.

I used to go to a lot of small/medium thrash/metal/punk shows where *real* mosh pits (the ones that go in circles) came out of nowhere, none of this Green Day crap. Fave shows way back when would have to be Minor Threat and Dead Kennedys... but you can't listen to that stuff at the office.

Lately I just stream from shoutcast.com either 80's music, hairband metal, or movie soundtracks.

I do it everyday. But then again I have my own office and nobody can hear my jams. When I used to be in the main office with cubicles, I couldn't play it.

I would love to have seen Minor Threat and Dead Kennedys. I envy you!

My Favorite band at heart and I have a forever reminder on my arm till the day I die.

I'm shocked they still play, would like to see them if they make their way down to San Diego again. I really wanted to always see Screeching Weasel, but I hear they hate Cali. Seen Social D lots of times, good band to see.

Speaking of "wonderful" that was my fav vinyl album of theirs

PUNKS NOT DEAD!!! :P

I thought it would be humorous to reference them like that!

I envy you for seeing Social Distortion that many times... I've only seen them once.

I'm glad to see you didn't loose your taste in music, as most people I know have.

We are going to a U2 Concert tonight in Las Vegas...

Ok that concert was pretty amazing. These guys are still very good. Very eclectic crowd and the stage was by far the best set I have ever seen in music - use of technology and how they captivated a stadium was pretty impressive. Bill Clinton, Steve Jobs, Dr. Dre, and a whole bunch of other celebrities were there.

There new song "Magnificent" is very good.

As always though - he did get a bit too political - but it is Bono.

Funniest thing is that the Tour is sponsored by Blackberry - but he thanked Steve Jobs (Apple iPhone and iPod) for being in the audience...was funny.

And the 2010 tour was announced today, so no worries about last one ever. Knowing that they have at least one more album already completed, I don't expect them to stop any time soon. However, they have to do something pretty spectacular if they want to out-do themselves with the stage again!

And (electronic) sign people, I can't believe none of you have been drooling or gushing over this! Saw the show in Chicago, what an incredible feat of engineering, design and build. More on this here (and many other places, but figured I'd plug a sign related site): http://www.digitalsignageuniverse.com/news_barco_070109.html

He is right - this was unbelievable feat of engineering and LED message boards like I have never seen. The part that blew me away the most is at one point all four of them were at least 100 feet apart from each other, not even able to see each other, and the song went together perfectly...that part was truly amazing.

    • We always strive on information here on The Sign Syndicate.  Everything from National Sign & Subcontractor Reviews on "payments & relationships" to "How To"...better ways to build sign systems and projects based on longevity & reliability .   So, we're very, VERY excited (I want to say "Super Excited" but it's so over used) to announce our whole new upcoming Sign Syndicate 24V BrightON (Pronounced like the city) LED system just got even better.  Better because we will be complimenting our High Powered, High Efficient LED Module system with France Lighting Solutions 24V LED Drivers.   I have talked about France products quite a bit here over the years, mainly when it comes to Neon.  The quality, that high bar of standards, most importantly....the "Reliability".   From Neon to LED Power Supplies, expect nothing different, nothing less from France Lighting Solutions.  But, actually here is something different about their LED Drivers, something "Cool".   The France LED Drivers are the ONLY drivers that are "True Power".    What is "True Power"?    In short......It means they are the ONLY LED driver in the electric sign industry that you can load to the MAX.  Not the typical load to 80% - 85% leaving room for voltage loss, wiring etc.  Load to MAX.....if you want.   We are just a month away from releasing the Sign Industries most light/power efficient LED Module on the market that will definitely put it's mark on this industry.  You'll be able to get the most light for very little cost of operation.  Get more for less.....be on a 24V system which give sign shops the unique ability to load more modules on a single power supply.  A 24V system reduces the heat, resistance, and amperage compared to a 12V system, you'll have more voltage headroom for longer wiring lengths.    With a 24V system you're not restricted to 60 Watts per channel, BUT 96 Watts.....that's almost double!    Complimenting our new LED System with France's "True Power" LED Drivers and adding them to your electric sign projects you'll be able to load 120 .8w BrightON 2 LED modules.  That's 76.25 Linear feet of high powered LED modules for anything from everyday channel letters to cabinet & perimeter lighting.   For our High Powered Sign Cabinet Lighting module, BrightON SunFire (2.4w), that France "True Power" LED Driver will give you 40 to 50 Linear Feet for your Sign Cabinets   France Lighting Solutions DRV24100E Dry & Damp Location     France Lighting Solutions DRV24100A Dry, Damp & WET Location     Those Sign Face Foot Candle numbers!!!  Look at the "Foot Candles Per Watt" (Higher is better)   Our complete High Powered High Efficient BrightON LED System with France Lighting Solutions, that's DOUBLE reliability!!!    COMING SOON!!
