I have a Metric song (“Synthetica”) stuck in my head this morning, and was just thinking back to their awesome show at Radio City (my first time there!). They are geat live, and there was even a surprise Lou Reed performance! I think it was my favorite concert I’ve been to this year 🙂
We also saw Death Cab for Cutie earlier in the year (my favorite band), and Dave Matthews Band in the summer (my husband’s favorite). Tickets and a weekend trip to Saratoga for the show was my bday gift to him 🙂
Fun times 🙂
So what concerts have you been to this year? And what was your favorite? Post pics if you have em!

I’ve only been to one concert this year. I went to see Def Leppard & Poison over the summer. I went with my Fiance and 2 of our groomsmen. One of the guys got us louge seats, it was awesome.. open bar & free food! The concert was great! We love 80’s music!
sorry so blurry, stupid phones.. me & the boys! (my Fiance is the one standing by himself)

The best show I saw this year, and probably my life, was at a tiny bar in Brooklyn. The Descendents played my friend’s bar with a capacity of 250 people, max, after a big festival was rained out. It was unreal.
Heres photos and stories about it – it was a BIG deal for people who are into those bands.

We saw Primus at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium! They were AMAZING and Les Claypool is a god on the bass. I only have one crappy cell phone pic and you can’t even really tell what’s going on so I won’t bother posting it.

Wayyyy too many to count! I saw Bruce Springsteen 4 times, Radiohead twice, went to a few different music festivals and usually see jam bands a few times a month. I also saw Further (remaining members of the Grateful Dead) a bunch of times in the past year.

We’ve been to a couple dj concerts/festivals, Brad Paisley at the Calgary Stampede, Paul Brandt (totally last minute, the concert was sold out, but our friend’s neighbours work for Ticketmaster and got us tickets the day of the concert!) We’ve gone to a couple concerts for Canadian artists, Matt Andersen and Del Barber and we will be going to Bassnector on Halloween (a dj) and Snow Patrol on October 28th.

I haven’t been to any yet but next Thursday, my husband and I are going to The Legend of Zelda symphony. We’re kind of nerdy and love video game music. I’m really looking forward to it!
Then in December we’re going to the Final Fantasy Distant Worlds symphony (which is also video game music). That one should be really neat because it’s being held to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy so they will have a lot of neat displays up about the games.
