I didn't see many concerts this year. I hope 2013 will have more opportunities; maybe I'll get into a band that's actually touring. :D My sister is going to see Muse in April, and I wanted to go too, but I have a school trip at that time.

^Boo school trip!  You must go to as many shows as you can!  I sincerely regret not "gigging it up" (as my lame friends used to say) more when I was younger.

I totally do. :D My tastes have been leaning more towards classic rock recently, so there aren't many acts that I absolutely love that are still touring. So it's rare to find a band or artist that I really like and would want to see live, that I can see live. And then when I do find one, I can't go to the concert. :P

I suspect you already know this, but it's short for Mancunian.  As in somebody who hails from Manchester, UK.

Hmm, you need experimental concert buddies (and money).  My experimental concert buddies and I have a scale that goes like this:

For $0-$20, we'll try any band once, no matter the venue/atmosphere, even if we don't know anything by the group.

For $21-$50 we'll check out a band who we like at least 2 songs from, no matter the venue/atmosphere.

For above $50, it's got to be someone whose album tracks we like too in a venue/atmosphere that's not a pain in the butt (no expensive parking, no screaming girl fans, etc).

I discovered three new bands this year following this method (all were opening bands from the $21-50 category).  This has helped diversify my music tastes, too!

I love that! I discovered Florence and the Machine after she opened for U2, so opening acts are always a good place to start.
