Concerts

I love live music. I love all music, really, but live music is especially fun for me.

In the summer of 2012, I wrote a blog post about concerts and live music, and talked about how many of my trips to new places started with a concert in that place.  In the post, I listed every band I had seen up until that point.  In the four years since, I have been regularly updating that post whenever I see a new band.   It’s long past the point that this should have been converted from a blog post to a page.

What follows is a list of every concert I’ve seen (that I can recall), including some well known comedians. I’m not including musicals, broadway or otherwise, but that would add a few dozen more names to the list. An asterisk (*) means I’ve seen them more than once.

I’ve always thought you can tell a lot about a person by the music they listen to.  Judging by this list, I either have really good taste or a deep and fulfilling psychosis.
