a show is a mini concert usually consisting of small, local bands. they are usually really low key and are usually really cheap. these shows are where all the scene, broXcore and hxc kids hang out at. they usually consist of five to nine bands that are either alright or really good, but sutimes the bands really sukk but then all the kids just go chill outside

What a self-conscious, pretentious, and egocentric urbanite uses for the word "concert."
"So many great shows last weekend, shame I could only make two of 'em,"
"Oh, don't plays and musicals and stuff usually run for more than one night?"
"No... like Bon Iver, Phoenix, Grizzly Bear shows."
"What is that?"
"Those are artists. You know like... 'bands.'"
"Oh! So you meant there were a lot of CONCERTS last weekend?"

What all the "hip" scene kids / sceneters call concerts. A scene kid would never ever call a concert a show. They would loose a lot of scene points. They'd probably go cut themselves and be emo or something.
