It expands the mind, it engages the crowd in a communal experience, and it brings you something that you just can't get from listening to recorded music.
That is a very difficult question. But one that stands out is Gogol Bordello at Sokol Auditorium a couple of years ago. They play a style of music that could be described as "gypsy punk". Frontman Eugene Hutz is a total madman, and helped to create a loud, wild, sweaty, euphoric experience with the audience.
My name is Ed, and music is my life. I usually attend live music events by myself, as I only know a few people who have similar tastes in music to mine. I like rock, blues, alternative, indie, folk, funk, classical, experimental, etc.
