Concert List

 







2011 Concert List
This is a compilation of all the bands that I have hopes of catching at a live show. Most of the bands listed below I have never seen live before so its sort of my "Wish List". I hope to mark off some of these groups in 2011. Read a quick overview below of why I would love to catch each groups show and check the links to see if these bands are touring near you. I know I'll be keeping a close eye on these links as the summer tour's get announced. Do you agree with some of my band choices? Who would you like to see live? Leave comments below!

Dashboard Confessional - I've been wanting to catch Chris Carrabba live since 2002. That is when his MTV Unplugged session was released and I've been digging his music ever since. The Unplugged album was a great live album that must have been recorded in front of some hardcore Dashboard fans because they sang along loudly with every song during the set. It sounded like a great live experience with a very talented artist and I hope I catch him live somewhere soon.

Third Eye Blind - This band blew up big in the 90's and I am really glad they are still making music. I have really enjoyed their sound and song writing over the years. Semi-Charmed Life is one of the few songs that I can never get sick of and its just one of many hits they have had during their time.

Gin Blossoms - Speaking of 90's bands that are still making music, the Gin Blossoms just happen to be my favorite 90's band. They are just coming off a recent album release called "Chocolate Cake" and I hope a tour of some sort comes close by.

Yellowcard - I was lucky enough to catch a Yellowcard show from about 10 feet in front of the stage. This is the only band on my list that I've seen live before but I have an urge to catch another show since they are now back from hiatus!!! I really love this band and their "Ocean Avenue" release was practically the soundtrack to my high school years. They put on a great show. Don't hesitate to catch them on tour somewhere. Bogarts in Cincinnati Ohio is recommended. I plan on being there.

Jason Mraz - I knew of Jason Mraz way before I was into his music. But not too long ago I heard some of his live recordings and it blew me away. This guys voice can practically be the whole band as he hums and skidlle-E-bee-bops his way through each song he plays. The background bongos and vocals provided by a man named Toca Rivera completes the package. Its a sweet soulful sound, and this is a top priority for me to catch him live.

The Rocket Summer - I have never heard any live music from this band, but I have to believe that it has to be phenomenal. The singing and song writing of Bryce Avary on his studio album releases practically sounds like live tracks without the fans. From yelling highs to whispering lows mixed into all the instruments this guys plays, this group has to be stellar live.

The Counting Crows - This group just makes great music. A modern day jam band. I love this groups ability to take a great album single and transform and perfect that song over the years to make it into something that offers so much more. Their live music can sometimes go unrecognized if you are not really familiar with each song. I thoroughly enjoy their live album "Across a Wire" and I would really love to see a live show.

Sara Bareilles - This list wouldn't be complete without showing a little love to the ladies. And there is one in particular that I would like to see live in concert. If I were being completely honest, I can say that I was never attracted to Sara Bareilles's radio releases. They are certainly catchy, pop'y songs that stick in your head but that's not what I am a fan of with her. I am however a sucker for piano. There is a certain emotion that a piano brings to a song. A piano can get you rocking or just leave you in a quiet silence. Sara Bareilles dominated my iPod at the end of 2010 because that is when I first heard her live album recorded at the Filmore. It was not only the emotion of the piano that I was attracted to, but the emotion of her live performance. I am looking forward to Sara making it back to the States and start touring.
