Currently listening to: Green Day – Dookie (much to my surprise, this was released 20 years ago today!)
WOW! What a year 2013 was in regards to concerts. I ended up attending more shows in 2013 than any other year. Grand total? 84!
It still blows my mind when I think about it. Check out my insane 2013 Concert List that includes reviews, pics and a few band member interviews. I def saw some AMAZING shows last year!
My last show of 2013 was on Nov 29 and I didn’t attend another show for 2 months. Not going to lie, for a good month or so I couldn’t shake the feeling like I had somewhere to be. haha
New in 2014…
I covered my first show of 2014 for Unsung Melody. I jokingly thought, “Do I even remember how to shoot?” Once back in front of the stage though, I immediately felt at ease. Break? What break? 😉 In fact, I should be finishing up the review and pics as I type this. Shhh…
In case you hadn’t heard, Shaun White (yes, snowboarder/skateboarder/Olympian Shaun White) is in a band called Bad Things. Their self-titled album was released in January. Check it out, pick it up and check out a show if they come to your town. *fingers crossed* dates are released after the Olympics.
Other new releases in January include:
*Metallica Through The Never (DVD, Blu-ray, etc)
*Smith & Myers – Acoustic Sessions (iTunes or Mp3)
The list of bands coming through my area during the first couple months of 2014 is getting longer. Other new releases are slowing starting to pop up as well (Black Label Society, Marc Ford, Sevendust acoustic). Although, the one I’m really waiting for is Chasing the Sun by Royal Bliss, available Feb 18. Check out their site for tour dates and get to a show. You won’t regret it!
Oh and in case you missed it, Motley Crue held a press conference on Jan 28 and announced their Final Tour EVER! U.S. Dates on sale today.
LONG LIVE ROCK ‘N ROLL!
