We have lots of threads for what everyone is listening to, movies they're watching, even random schtuff.  So, I figured why not have a thread for everyone to talk about what concerts they are going to in the near future and a place to post reviews afterwards, etc.

no rules, just post what you want about your concerts...


kozamel and I haven't been to many shows recently.  The last show we attended was Bon Iver a few months ago in Denver.
upcoming shows for us are:
Horse Feathers in Denver 11/13
Joe Purdy in Denver 12/1

I saw Horse Feathers in Baltimore last year and they were just fantastic... The tour was just with Justin Ringle, Heather Broderick and Nathan Crockett. There might have been 20-30 people there and I got to talk to Justin after the show. You two should have a great time aarvid!

I'm going to see Guster tonight. 10 year anniversary tour of Lost and Gone Forever so they are playing it straight through. Also going to see the Get Up Kids next week. I feel like I'm in high school again.

Recently, I've seen Seawolf, Yo La Tengo, the Decemberists and Monsters of Folk. All in September and October! It's been wonderfull overwhelming! I might see Old Crow Medicine Show in November and Andrew Bird is playing a show - at my church of all places - in early December that I have tickets for. It's turning out to be a musically amazing fall!

How was Monsters of Folk?

Absolutely amazing. They are all incredibly talented in their own right and so putting them all together is mind-blowing. I wasn't super impressed by the album but seeing them play live was a completely different thing. I had seen them on the original tour in 2004-2005 when they first came up with the idea so it was cool to see them again. They played for three hours straight, changing off between MOF songs and backing each other up and sharing their solo songs. The musicianship was pretty spectacular and you can just see how much fun they're having. Oh and Jim James has the most amazing voice ever. There were times when you couldn't tell what was Mike Mogis playing pedal steel and what was Jim singing.... crazzzzyyyy  Cheesy Oh and there were a ridiculous amount of beautiful guitars on stage. Ridiculous.

Apparently ticket prices were variable on how many tickets were left. I could have bought the 20 dollar ones, but eighty...bleurgh.

Um, I saw Melanie in concert. Does anyone remember Melanie?
