Concerts

I love music.  Gotta support the artists, so I (and for the last few years “we” as Megan and I) have been going to concerts.

Coachella 2004

To keep a reference handy, I thought I’d post the list – alphabetically of course.  Disclaimers:  1) there’s a couple I’m not so proud of; 2) I haven’t indicated those I’ve seen more than once; 3) I’m sure I’ve missed a few…  I also have highlighted those whose performances exceeded expectations – ask me why sometime, if you like.  Don’t freak on me for not highlighting other epic concerts:  seeing The Cure, New Order, or Massive Attack were definite favourites, but their performances didn’t hit me like Battles nailing 2-handed/2-instrument scales while 8 loops deep.  ‘Nuf said.
