The first time was at the music gallery in Toronto the day before Halloween, where they played a single song/noise for half an hour with accompanying visuals. Very surreal in the church setting. I'm pretty sure you can download this performance from either their website or from their mailing list (they keep archives).

The second time was the middle of winter in this tiny old mill in Waterloo. Again it was an awesome location. I'm not sure who took the pic.

Both performances were great, because you could feel the sounds as well as hear them, which adds a whole new level to doom/sludge/stoner metal.

ahhh, that sounds amazing. being able to actually feel the music at live shows is one of the greatest things ever. a half-hour of heavy/pretty noise sounds excellent too.
i can't remember if you are in toronto (?), you should come to the show here on september 11th.

The only real concert I've been to was a Moody Blues outdoor lazer light show in Kansas City. It was pretty cool even though I'm not a big fan, because this hardcore hippy guy sitting on the grass in front of us broke his joint in half and gave us half, so then the concert oddly got really good all of the sudden. Hmm... what a coincidence. ;)

I saw some ska/punk bands performing live at beach festivals in SoCal when I was a teenager, but I don't remember the names. I wonder if any of them got big?

yes, it's at tranzac. i've never been there but it's a small venue and supposed to be good. not sure if you know downtown toronto but it's just near bloor+spadina. it's pay at the door, and probably inexpensive.
