As we draw nearer to summer, the concert calender really hots up 🙂 and it really looks like I am going to go broke and this does not even include the couple of festivals that are coming up, why do I have to like music so much???
August 19, 2005 – Little Birdy (playing this weekend, really cheap tickets, might go in after work to see them)
August 22, 2005 – Nine Inch Nails (not going but wouldn’t it be awsome to see them live especially to see Perfect Drug live)
September 4, 2005 – MxPx & Motion City Soundtrack (going to skip this one as well but it would be a good show to go to)
September 10, 2005 – The Mountain Goats (A case of almost wetting my pants, a super rad band that I discovered on KEXP one day and it is the day before my birthday how could it get any cooler?? )
September 15, 2005 – Spoon (will probably be my second birthday present to myself, like many people I found them through the OC and it has become so much more sense then)
Sepember 18, 2005 – The Hives (They’re sweedish, they rock and it is a 18+ even that means no squealing 10 year olds)
September 23, 2005 – Black Eyed Peas (Thought about going to this as I do like a good selection of the songs but it is one pricey concert ticket so going to skip this one)
September 24, 2005 – Garbage (again could be a good show but the tickets are way overpriced for who Garbage is, sorry folks maybe next time)
October 1, 2005 – Reel Big Fish and Goldfinger (Hope to drag Matthew or have him drag me to this show, what a combo of great bands for a night of ska’ing)
October 2, 2005 – Simple Plan, The All-American Rejects and Kisschassy (Sam and I are going to this, trying to toss up at the moment between getting mosh tickets off ebay for a little bit more or sitting up the back in the seats. We both saw Simple Plan when they played earlier this year with Green Day but I am going to see AAR – swoon, I almost had a heart attack when I saw they were coming out with SP, love, love, love AAR and then Sam wants to see Kisschassy, a really good band from Melbourne – Going to be one hell of a good night)
Ocotober 29, 2005 – Missy Higgins, Ben Lee, Howie Day, Ray LaMontagne and more. (This hopefully won’t be as much of a pot smoking night like Jack Johnson was but it will still be a nice summer evening out at the gardens for some top music)
November 26, 2005 – Oasis (how could I not go to this? not sure who I will drag along yet maybe Matthew but I mean these are the guys who have written so many classic songs it will be a great night)
December 2, 2005 – Foo Fighters (I was too young to see Nirvana live but at least I can see Dave Grohl in the Foos)

Oh I so love going to shows! I haven’t been to one since Switchfoot back in like…March. It was great tho! I would LOVE to see Ben Lee, and also Oasis (I’m rediscovering my old flame for them!) and I discovered Spoon from the OC too and really like them! We should talk music! 🙂
