Concert Overload

So I am a little behind on blogging about all the concerts I got to see recently! Last one I blogged about was Muse. But I got to go to three more since then! First up was EdgeFest!

This was my outfit for EdgeFest. Since it is an outdoor festival I was ready for it to be hot.

And boy was it hot! I got a pretty bad sunburn.

This is the view from my seat. I don't stand in the crowd anymore because it gets too sweaty and gross.

This guy sat in front of me and people kept asking for photos with him. I finally asked my neighbor and she said he is the lead singer for Youngblood Hawke!

I was most excited to see The Gaslight Anthem. They are definitely one of my all time favorite bands ever. I saw them once in a smaller venue and was excited to see them again at EdgeFest. Unfortunately, they didn't play too well. Or maybe they did, but I couldn't hear them at all. I was bummed. But do check out their music anyway, because they really are a great band!

The second band I was most excited to see was Paramore! I am a really big fan of theirs. I also got to see them a long time ago with Jimmy Eat World. That was an amazing show. And this concert was great, too. They played awesome and I already knew all the words to the songs from their new album! 





Next concert was.....



Jimmy Buffett! You wouldn't believe it from these pictures but it was literally THE NEXT WEEKEND after EdgeFest. IT WAS SO COLD! That's Texas weather for ya, I guess. I looked stupid all bundled up when everyone around me was wearing hula skirts and coconut bras, but when the sun went down it was freezing cold! Then everyone wished they had bundled up like me.

This place was packed. It was also at the same venue as EdgeFest.

Jimmy Buffett was on my Dad's list of concerts he has always wanted to see. I am so glad I got to go with him!

On the way back to our car I found a lonely coconut bra. So I had to take it home with me!

I think it looks great :D


And the next concert was.......

The Killers! This band was on my Mom's list! It was at the Verizon Theatre. I had never been to a concert there before, and I was really impressed with the place.

I found this awesome couch in the lounge room, too!

We had great seats and the sound was amazing. The vibe of this show was incredible. And the lead singer was SO CUTE.

During the show they shot confetti at the crowd. On Twitter, the band said that somewhere in the confetti are two "golden tickets" ... If you find one bring it to the sound guy in the back and you get to win an AWESOME prize!

We looked and looked but didn't find a golden ticket. It was still so much fun!

I don't have any more concerts planned at the moment. Someday I would like to see No Doubt, Florence + The Machine, and Mumford & Sons. I like music that I can sing along with :)

What band would you like to see in concert?

  1. I'd like to see Deathcab for Cutie live. But really the list is WAY to long to try and post up.

  2. Deftones are coming to South Africa in August and I am beside myself with excitement! There is also rumour that Biffy Clyro will be here towards the end of the year so yay for that! They are both bands on my must see list:)

  4. Green Day is my favorite Live band. I have seen them 12 times! I finally saw U2 back in 2009.
    I still need to see The Damned, Bruce Springsteen, and English Beat.
    Luckily growing up I go to see a lot of the punk and ska bands I loved!
    I still haven't seen Social Distortion, or, Brian Setzer.

    LOL on the coconut bra!

  5. You have such a wide range of music tastes. I am downloading the gaslight anthem to have a listen. Love your coconut bra. You are hilarious.

  6. You've been to some awesome concerts this year! I'm so jealous that you got to see AWOLNATION at EdgeFest. Bummer about Gaslight Anthem. It's always really frustrating when a band you love puts on a show that's disappointing.

    There are always new bands coming along that I want to see (AWOLNATION!), but I'm slowly getting around to seeing old bands from my must-see list. Rammstein was the last must-see band that I got to check off the list... such a great show too! I think System of the Down is currently at the top of my list... hopefully someday they'll do another tour through the US.

  7. Some nice shows. Edgefest always has a great lineup. The radio station festival here in Houston, Buzzfest, usually has a less than stellar lineup. It was great once a few years ago though. I've always wanted to see HIM, Green Day, and The Who. Those are the top three that I haven't gotten to see yet, that I still hope to one day.

    So far this year though, I've seen a handful of country shows, as well as Limp Bizkit, Device, Fall Out Boy, Clutch, Powerman 5000, and Eve 6. I still have, Everclear, Filter, Kid Rock, Mayhem Fest, Fall out Boy (again), Panic at the Disco, and maybe Justin Timberlake, if I can get tickets, to come. It's been a great year for shows this year. One of the best in recent memory.

  8. I saw Paramore this April in Phoenix and they were amazing! This girl down in the front passed out and Hayley stopped the show to make sure she got the proper care. They really care about their fans, you can really see it. And, I got to see No Doubt last November at the Gibson in LA. I've seen Gwen perform twice as a solo act, but had never seen her with No Doubt, so it was beyond incredible to see them together. I'm looking forward to seeing New Kids on the Block in Vegas this July and I wanted to see Justin Timberlake, but I couldn't afford tickets :(
