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!

Yeah, I can spend a lot of time on Youtube too... It's slightly addicting.

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.

    • 1st of all while its great to use as an excuse. I am not sure as what I would like to consider myself a legitimate business that excuse to not pay does not fly. I cant use that excuse with Grimco, Glantz aluminum suppliers , Ford , the bank.   Hmmm I will just have to put on my big boy pants and get into the line of credit.  Our large signs we are using our money for 60-90 days by the time the project starts through delivery then getting paid.    Besides what if they never get paid. Nope sorry thats not how this works.
    • Paul;   Your statement   " When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? "   You are exactly on point. How the hell do I know for sure when you have been paid? This comes after being so stupid that I would agree to be paid when paid in the first place.   I just received a query from "FacilitySource" to become a contractor. They have just been consumed by CBRE (Coldwell Banker Richard Ellis), a large player in the real estate/ real estate management area. I received a solicitation sheet from them and I won't even insult the intelligence of those on this venue by posting it.   The response section was very definite but the payment portion was somewhere out in the Cosmos. You could  be  paid only if they got paid and then pay you at some mysterious date in the future. They had a list of discounts that they wanted to take under circumstances that were totally unverifiable. You also had to sign away all rights as a contractor while shielding them from everything. Incredible............   But if I were to sign this nonsense, I would be getting exactly what I deserve.   Just for the record, they intimated that they wanted me to provide service to Lowe's, along with some other familiar major accounts in my area.   I politely refused the offer but thought to myself that if a person made me an offer like this to my face I would have dispensed justice with a broken car antenna right on the spot.   Peace out!  
    • Here is a " National " Maintenance Co that sent me a request to work for them. I read their contract and it included payment statements stating they will only pay their contractors if they get paid by their customers. Also included was a Hold Harmless Insurance Policy covering everyone  And no legal actions can be taken against the National or the end customer  Plus a lot of other nonsense    When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? Here is the answer sent to me                  Hello,   I will take you out of our system. The only reason we wait until the client pays us ( like every other maintenance company that isn’t upfront with you about it ) is because we are nationwide and all through Canada. If we paid every technician before getting paid we would be out of business. That would be millions we would have to lay out.   Thank you!   Dominique DiPalo Vendor Relations RKB Maintenance Solutions 330 Motor Parkway, Suite 306 Hauppauge, NY 11788 P:  516-612-7821 x 413| F: 516-706-1393 E:  DDiPalo@rkb247.com | W: www.rkb247.com
