Do you guys think that you could say that youve "seen" a band if you saw them at warped tour? I mean a half hour is only 5 or 6 songs, i dont know if one could consider it actually seeing the band. I think it should be stated if you saw the band at warped tour, becasue i think its a whole different experience.
Thoughts? Criticism? Comments?
Gracias

I think it matters more the 'enivironment' you seen them in. If your standing in a field 150 feet from the stage, its gonna be different then if your in the singers face screaming. It does suck if the band you go to see only plays 5 songs, but i've seen bands that have played shorter sets than 30 minutes and they left ALOT bigger impressions in my mind, then bands that have played 40 minute sets.

it is a whole different experience, but when someone asks me if ive seen a band, and i saw them at warped, i usually specify that that's where i saw them. but i mean it doesnt really matter, since technically you've "seen" the band whether at warped tour or at one of their own shows

yeah yeah i agree with you guys. there is a lot of energy at warped tour, so some of those half hour shows ****in rule. like Big D last year, i could say that ive seen them. Its weird though, some people say that you havent seen a band if you saw them at warped..and i disagree with that

I think its a different experience. The shorter sets are usually a little more energetic and they are a lot of fun. Of course it sucks seeing a band for a shorter period of time. If i say i've seen a band i mean i've experienced their stuff live, whether it be for 15 minutes or an hour...

Anyone who actually believes that you haven't "seen" a band just because you saw them at Warped tour is an enormous "Huchebag" (which is my portmanteau for Huge Douche bag.)

So what, now we are going to make concerts events in elite dick measuring too?

Dur Iz seen Big D with three people and a semi retarded dog so Iz seen them moar than u's ceen dem!

What bands take a half hour to play 5 or 6 songs?

The setlist for my band's next show is like 10 songs, and still not 30 minutes long.

Thanks a ton. I didn't know if the 'u' sound came from 'huge' or 'douche'.

I know a kid who's in a band that plays every single one of their songs at their shows.

I'm not going to lie, I will probably use the term Huchebag in the near future.

In other news, I think if you've seen a band at a festival, you've literally SEEN them live. So go for it. Although I don't know how many bands at Warped Tour you'd be bragging about seeing ( , I kid..but seriously). I mean, if you nearly crushed your pound rib cage and got a record number of bruises trying to get up front for Flogging Molly, own it.

I went on a date with a kid, which ended up in us playing Rock Band in his basement (it was pretty eventful, as you could tell). Anyways, they always play those little factoids while you're waiting for your song to load, right. Well we were about to do a Ramones level and the fact was "The Ramones debut album had 14 songs and lasted 30 minutes long". He said "Why would anyone want to listen to such short songs? That's not even music."

Well, I certainly hope that was your last date with him.

I think my band's longest song is like 2:30 ish. Maybe 2:45. And our shortest is 1:02.

He's obviously never listened to Limp Wrist. Their entire discography is about half an hour. That's 40 some songs! It's also the best music ever.

Yeah, make him listen to Limp Wrist until he likes it.

Rancid are the best punk band ever.

Tim Armstrong is a songwriting genius, is a complete fashion diva and has an incredible singing voice.

He doesn't sound like Opie from family guy at all.

That's a start but anyone who doesn't like Limp Wrist is not a real man and shouldn't be allowed to fondle my steenas.

Have you ever gone to those Reel Big Fish shows with 4 or 5 bands? I went Once to see Streetlight, Against All Authority, and RBF (at least once, never again) and everyone but RBF's set was 30 minutes. I count that as seeing Streetlight and AAA. I paid admission so why can't I claim I saw them? They got in a pretty decent amount of songs, too.

Im in a Jazz/Funk/Reggae type Jam band and we played 6 songs during our last 30 minute set. Punk bands can get a lot more in than us.

i get in for free so i dont really care who's playing but seeing even one of their songs, in my mind, is seeing them play because you're surrendering your time to them.

No, you haven't seen the band. The qualifications for seeing a band is that they had to play at least an hour set and you had to be within a 100 foot range of them.

On a serious note, Yes, you saw the band. Did you not just see them play music?
