Most Surprising Live Show?

Thought this might turn into an interesting thread. Basically, what's a band that completely blew away your expectations when you saw them live? Either you expected them to be great and they were terrible, or you expected them to be terrible and they were great, or you expected one genre and got something else :lol:

For me, I saw a show a few years back and these guys were one of the openers. They came out with a hip hop intro track and broke into the song featured in the second half of this video (couldn't find a video of exactly what I saw, but this should give you an idea of how the show went).

Needless to say, I was expecting to have to sit through a generic hip hop set of some sort, and instead ended up with a full set of decent, catchy punk with great live energy and solid playing. :lol:

First time I saw Gogol Bordello, and surprisingly, Tonic. They kinda rocked :yesway:
Did you wear purple? I had so much when they came out here, it was ridiculous. The only time I danced more at a show was when we saw Streetlight Manifesto.
Orange :lol:. I hadn't heard anything from the latest album yet. All I had to go on were some acoustic, laid back tracks that my friend brought with her in the car for the ride there. I remember thinking, "Wow, this is going to be boring as hell."

I had growing-pain style cramps in BOTH calves that night/morning :lol:
