Wow - that's a tough question. The thing about both shows - which I've seen them both - is that EVERY BAND ON THE BILL was awesome both times. Usually you don't get that. It really comes down to what kind of music you like / appreciate more. For me, that's a tough call, because I have big love for both styles. It might come down to a game-time decision of whether I'm feeling more post-rock or sludge / doom that particular day.

I will say that I screamed my damn fool head off a lot more at the HoF show, but really that goes without saying given the musical styles of the two shows - and that's not necessarily the only measure of fun, either.

Have you seen the bands on either tour before? If so, I might venture to say that the other tour might have been a good call because then you'd be broadening your horizons even more, but beyond that, it's really hard to say which one would have been a better opportunity. Both shows were fucking sweet, so any way you look at it, you made a good choice to go rather than not.

Oh...one more angle you could look at...what are your chances of seeing the bands in question again anytime soon? If this were the criterion, I might recommend the Red Sparowes / Caspian gig just because they tour a lot less than the others, but again, the only losers in a quandary like the one you were in were the folks who stayed home.

Apparently, Caspian isn't going to be at any of the CA shows, so unless you're really into Red Sparowes, I'd go with High on Fire.

jotun is right. BUT...I just looked at the dates for this, and discovered that (a) these shows are not on the exact same date, and (b) the dates are in the future - I thought this is something that had already happened. So there is still time to get your Red Sparowes ticket in addition to High on Fire. You know you want to.

(But seriously, if you already have a HoF ticket and don't have the time and / or cash to go to Red Sparowes, you probably made the right call.)
