Soon to embark on their 2015 North American Fall Tour with Cody Simpson and Chef’Special, AMBY had the pleasure of speaking with Carter Schultz and David von Mering of reggae-infused hip-hop group Aer to discuss their all-time favourite concerts (which includes everything from boogying at Phish to fangirling at Arctic Monkeys). Enjoy our exclusive feature to get acquainted with the duo, before their live show becomes one of your most memorable gigs.
Dirty Heads – Red Rocks – Colorado
My first time at Red Rocks and it had just stopped raining. Everything was heightened because of it.
Kanye West – Outside Lands – San Francisco
First time seeing Kanye which was awesome. He was super happy and into the set which made it great.
Wild Belle – The Paradise – Boston
Had been following them for a while and finally got to catch a set and they crushed it.
Red Hot Chili Peppers – TD Garden – Boston
All time favorite band, ripping it as always.
Phish – Bangor, ME
Had never really listened to any Phish, got drunk and boogied all night.
DAVID VON MERING:
PartyNextDoor – Irving Plaza – NYC
Everyone sang every word to every single song. It was his first show there and you could tell he was elated.
Foo Fighters – TD Banknorth – Boston
This was one of my first really big concerts. Seeing 20k + people all going crazy was in itself an incredible experience.
Red Hot Chili Peppers – TD Banknorth – Boston
My favorite band. John their original guitarist wasn’t there but it was still a “bucket-list” moment for me
Theophilus London – Bowery – NYC
The set was with a band and mainly funk/rnb/dance music, but at one point during the show he brought out some underground rappers. Also Father was opening and I got to see “Wrist” live.
Arctic Monkeys – Outside Lands – San Fran
One of my favorite bands. I was taking pictures and freaking out like a 16 yr old girl. Something about the story and the new album’s sound has a “living legend” experience when you see them live. They have classics from back in the day but AM as a whole is now their biggest album, it’s cool to see that rebirth.
