evil home stereo, what good songs do you know?


I look forward to summer concerts each year when I am lucky enough to snag a ticket for a good show. Live music is always so much more fun to listen to, and especially when it is played at a smaller, more intimate location. But there are summer concerts, and there are ah-ma-zing summer concerts you wait years to attend.

One of my favorite bands has to be Modest Mouse, and I almost cried tears of joy when I found tickets to see their July 25th concert in Boston. My brother snatched them the second they came out after setting about five different alarms for when they went on sale. You could say that we are fans. We have been itching to attend one of their shows for so long and this seemed unreal. To add to our excitement we kept a running countdown months in advance, and on the day of the show arrived a mere three hours prior to show time. Yeah, just three hours, no big deal. But it was a good thing we did – the line was huge and the venue, packed. Our front row (!) and amazingly close (“right next to Isaac’s nose hairs” as my brother said) spot greatly paid off for all of our efforts. I am currently trying to invent a time machine that will allow me to revisit last night over and over and over again! :}

What summer concerts are you attending this season?

  3. Very cute story! I was pretty much delirious when I got tickets to Sufjan Stevens a few years ago. I'd seen him when he was a nobody with a banjo, but it was way harder the second time! Loved it! Love Modest Mouse too!

  11. haha this is EXACTLY how I was when seeing Incubus last summer. I set alarms to wake up 5 min before tickets went on sale, and I even got the set list signed! Great souvenir! Seeing a live show is one of those summer staples everyone must do before the weather gets unbearable.
    looking forward to your next post-- visit my blog again! www.crescentfashion.blogspot.com
