...and how many times is that?
Over 30 times since 1992.
then I think it's Frightened Rabbit, with 3 times. Which isn't very much really.
then I think LaFaro might win with at least 6.
before that think it was Two gallants with a mere 2....Would love if there was a local band I really liked.
9 times each as far as I remember, seems shocking that its hard to remember every time you've seen a band, but trying to think over 9 years of gigs is difficult sometimes.
Quite a few bands in the 5-7 times category as well,
The most times I've actually forked out for a band (i.e. not at festivals/free gigs etc.) are Caribou & Arcade Fire on 4.
Steve Wynn - +20 times since 1993
Edwyn Collins - +20 times since 1990
Deerhunter - 11 times in the last 2 years.
11 times in 2 years!
are you their roadie?
I'm seeing them 6 times next year too. I just really like Deerhunter.
Most for a non-Scottish band is only twice though, for Modest Mouse
and now i feel inadequate
youthmovies x 2 (once with support from rolo tomassi, once with adam gnade)
the futureheads x 2, to a lesser extent because i only paid to see them the first time. they were supporting muse the 2nd
at least 100
otherwise counting local(ish) bands Boanthrope 6x
and I have to say that both occasions were both ultra-fun nights. Probably some of the best/most fun gigs I've ever been to - really special nights. They need another fucking reunion tour.
at over 25 are Ash and Idlewild.
a definite 11 times since 1998
My Bloody Valentine, No Age, by Friday i'd have both seen Sonic Youth and Shellac 3 times each, have seen Deerhunter at least twice, maybe 3
...about 20 times.
all 5 times.
biffy clyro 20+
twilight sad 10+
judging by our last fm
more than likely. You have a ticket for the Strathy Union gig?
but if we're talking non-local, then probably Belle & Sebastian at 6 times.
but 7 of those were when we were actually on tour with them.
once supporting Maps & Atlases, once at the old blue last, once at the purple turtle, once in pompey, once in guildford (i saw them 3 times in 5 days) and then the last gig at the fly ? i think that's where it was
brand new x6 coheed x6 tbs x 6
i probably saw charlottefield a good 20 times or so...loved every second!
Mine might be something ridiculous like My Vitriol or Ikara Colt just because they seemed to either support everyone, or played my local venue every other week when I was a student. Also Los Campesinos! but then none of those times were after they got signed and they played at least once a week in Cardiff over that summer. I guess the only band I've conciously paid money with the intention of seeing is Mogwai, but then that's spread across 12 years.
Basically this thread doesn't prove anything. I've seen Coldplay four times as many as my 5 favourite bands put together
19(?) times since 1998
The National- 11 times
Owen Pallett- 11 times
Puressence - 8 times I think
God is an Astronaut - 5 times
These Monsters - 5 or 6 times (they supported a lot of acts I've seen in Leeds over the last couple of years.)
Nothing else more than twice I don't think. But ones I'm smug about;
The Jesus Lizard - twice (1994 & 2009)
Isis - twice
Rocket From The Crypt - only once in 1995 but it counts for more!!
I'm pretty sure it's The Levellers! 9 times I believe.
Followed by PJ Harvey with 7 times.
actually a fan. Not that I disliked them or anything, I just didn't own any of the records or know much about them.
They were supporting a hell of a lot of bands in the early 00's though.
Ryan Adams 6 times, also since 2006.
Then, just off the top of my head, SFA, Pixies, Strokes, Weezer between 3 and 5 times each.
and over the years have probably seen The Fall about the same. More recently I'm well into double figures with Death Cigarettes/Cold In Berlin.
about 15-20 times.
Low next with 7. Or maybe Larakkin Love.
Idlewild another 10 too
Biffy at least 5
Don't think I've ever been to a Shellac gig (unless you count Release The Bats) but from simple ATP-age I must have seen them at least a dozen times.
Second is probably somebody like Super Furry Animals... I'm not really a big fan, I just seem to have ended up at an improbable number of their shows.
10x at ATP or an ATP-curated stage
7 times. somehow
6x, tied with vampire weekend...hmm
like Snork Maiden.
Hmm there was a time when Wolf Eyes played in the UK loads, must have seen the at least 5 or 6 times...
Enjoyed every single one.
blur, rem, manics x 6 each
radiohead, pet shop boys, lcd soundsystem, depeche mode, rufus wainwright x 5 each
As at least one of the three played or supported at every gig/festival/all-dayer I went to for about seven years. I've never even liked Biffy fucking Clyro.
they're probably sick of the sight of me
But i've seen the National 3 times at quality venues, The South Bank Centre (Front Row), The Albert Hall and Glasgow's Academy
I saw darwin deez twice in a week, craaaazy.
second worst venue in glasgow after the SECC
I liked it, great atmosphere. sounded good as well, better than Newcastles which is the only other one i've been too.
PWEI, Atom Seed and New England. For current bands that are still going it's Einstellung, think we've seen them about 12 times now
I saw them 23 times, which I think is quite a high percentage of ALL their gigs ...
I maintain to this day that the only reason they broke up was because I was starting to scare them a little.
flaming lips 30+
yo la tengo 14
animal collective,godspeed,sonic youth,mercury rev,les savy fav,fuck buttons and arab strap.all atleast 10 times

pagan wanderer lu maybe 10 or so?
los camp about 7 or 8 or something
65daysofstatic x 7

Six or so times I suppose.

This past year: Deftones - 3 times

Fever ray x 2 (this year)
