I'd like to know how many people out there listen to live music, and if you think this affects how you judge recorded music?

I apologize for the short list of genres, but the poll only has 10 choices. And "world" is kind of a catch all for African, Rai, Fado, Flamenco, Gamelon, etc,

I listen to live music 1-3 times a week, mostly Rock though some R&B, Jazz and Folk. I'm not a musician or a singer, but I do frequently record live music.

How about you?

Moderation: Moved to "Polls".

A bit of clarification/further apology/excuse making:

I did mean listening to a musician, band, orchestra or vocalist performing live, not listening to a recording of their performance. Taking time to hear friends or spouses playing and even subway/metro musicians count too. Perhaps I should have said "How often do you attend live music performances" for the first question.

Sorry about the genres, but check boxes was not an option. Neither is a fill in box. And even though there are literally of hundred of genres, I could only ask about a few here, so it tried to use a broad brush.

I agree with the posters that genres are often meaningless pigeon holes, and I do listen to quite a bit of live music that crossed boundaries. I mean how do you classify a very hard, sometimes mosh pitted, punk rocker who recently performed her original music with a 7 piece all acoustic chamber orchestra and 5 member choral harmony at 3/4 speed. I guess, rock sort of. But what if in between hard driving "Ruint", "Bottom Feeder" and "Necromancer" she does a Nina Simone cover? Is it then jazz?

Anyway, point taken about genres, but it *can* give us some common points of reference. We know the difference between La Scala, Beyonce, a White Stripes concert.

I had thought about asking what was the genre last concert/performance, but that might be even less representative.

As for frequency, I thought about something in between at least monthly and at least yearly, but I didn't know how to do it without the time periods becoming too confusing. Oh well.
