What's the farthest you've gone for a show?


I was thinking about this earlier. I didn't count shows that just happened to be where I was going to for other reasons. In Canada I've driven to Montreal and Ottawa which are both a good 5-6 hour drive if traffic isn't bad. I've driven to Buffalo which isn't that far from home. I've also driven to Detroit and NYC. I've flown to both Boston and Milwaukee for shows.

You?

Growing up in the philadelphia area, any show between NY (100 miles north) and DC (140 miles south) was an option. I've only made a couple trips up to Boston for shows, that's 300+ miles. But without a doubt, the furthest i've traveled for a music event is NY to London.




If I fail math, there goes my chance at a good job and a happy life full of hard work.

Traveled from Philadelphia to Milwaukee by bus. Friends of mine made flight plans in advance to go to the Milwaukee Metal Fest in 99. I didn't have my shit together and ended up past minute taking the greyhound there. Fortunately when I got there we found out that the Social Chaos tour was playing at the fest. Sloppy Seconds, The Business, D.R.I, Murphy's Law, One Way System and a bunch of other great bands. The bus rides were horrible but worth it.

normal distances to shows are about 100 miles for one way. but when it comes to something special i make it up to 300 or so miles.
the farthest show was definately the sheer terror show in boston. then i flew a few times to madrid or dublin and drove 12 hrs to prague to see slapshot.

That was the show I flew in for. Also got to see the Social Chaos tour a week or two later here in Toronto, which was awesome except some bands weren't allowed across the border.

Boston to NYC to Ireland to travel with Black 47 on tour. Stateside, I'd have to say driving up to Bangor for the DKM Shamrock 'n' Roll festival, although technically that doesn't count, since the Gobshites were on the bill. But I did watch the show when we weren't playing...

It was so nice that it was in a smaller room. A fest within a fest. More recently My girl and I drove from Oakland to LA for The Bouncing Souls when they did all 8 albums in 4 nights. I love road trips.

well if you could trips with Slapshot I've traveled from home (Rhode Island) to Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, England etc), but the furthest I've gone for a show without them is from RI to Philly to see Sheer Terror at 'This is Hardcore' but that was just as much about meeting BD, Andy and Gavin as it was about seeing ST.

From Niagara I never really went further than Buffalo to the south, London to the west or Toronto to the North. Really no further than around 180km in any direction.



A lot of people ask me what kind of music I like. I love "soul music". My "soul music" isnít a style, genre or niche. Itís music that is genuine. Itís a painful lyric, a dirty bassline, itís a harrowing vocal, itís feedback, itís an anthem, itís a love song, itís anarchy. Iíve got my personal favourites but in the end it doesnít matter who or where it comes from... so long as itís good and it's real.

That tour had the best lineup of bands I've ever had the chance to see in one show. I'd love to see it again.

CBGB 2x.
1 for the Sheer Terror "Funeral" in 2004.
1 for Joe Coffee I think the year before that. I had hooked a friend up with Ray to do their T Shirts.

Then in 98 for the Sheer Terror goodbyes show at Coney Island High, for which I drank far too much St Ides beforehand , so thank god for video footage years later to refresh my memory!

Then a few shows in and around PA when my friends band For Life was playing between 96-99 which might not have been all too far, to places like Moosk and Jim Thorpe, but riding in a car with those guys and my bud Volpe made it seem like an eternity. Those guys farted a lot.

950mi Chicago to Framingham, MA for one of the back to school jams to see slapshot/stars and stripes and blood for blood.

Drove straight through, with piss breaks and food think it took us 16 hrs.

Spent the whole day in a Chinese restaurant bar across the street drinking scorpion bowls, maybe saw 5 minutes of each of those three bands. Class.
