I'm going to see Springsteen in Phoenix in August, and if I ever get out of here, I'll order tickets to see Dave Alvin.

Slow summer for me.

Even if you're not fans of the band... go see Weezer. There are lots of undiscovered bands on the sidestage, usually 4-5, and there's also Sparta, Dashboard Confessional, and on select dates (ie right after the one I saw... GRRR...), the Strokes will also be playing. The show only costs 22-27 bucks for all of this, and Weezer themselves put on an excellent show, really tight live band, and really friendly atmosphere. Lots, and lots, and lots of energy. Go see the Enlightenment Tour!

My friend Derek didn't really like Weezer before the show. He is converted.

So far:
Rock Never Stops tour(Tesla/Vince Neil)
Simple Minds (leaning on stage right in front of Jim Kerr)
Deep Purple/Scorpions
Ozzfest
The Who/Robert Plant

Upcoming:
Hagar/Roth
Stones

Planning on seeing Springsteen in Oct, assuming I get a ticket when they go on sale.
Also just heard The Who is coming back in Sept, so that's a probability.
Aerosmith if I find a good seat.

They Might Be Giants
Doves (twice)
Elbow -- opening for Doves (twice)

Ed Harcourt -- opening for Neil Finn
Neil Halstead (twice)
The Vines

Upcoming:

maybe Ash instore tomorrow
Jimmy Fallon (hopefully -- still need to get tickets)

Of my friends (around here at least) - no one is really a big concert go-er

I havent been to anything since I saw Garbage back in April, but I'm seeing Coldplay in September!

Not that I would encourage anyone to go see Aerosmith, but I have had excellent luck with single seats on ebay. Face value, plus shipping each time.

Just a little hint from your ol' Auntie Martha.

I mentioned this in another post, but I say it again. Hagar and Roth was a cool show. If you're lucky Roth will open for Hagar, because Hagar puts on a better show overall. It's worth the price of the ticket, so go and have a blast.

Weezer ruled, and so did one of their opening bands, Sparta. I'm planning on going to Moby.
