OK. It’s time to brag.
What was the absolute, hands-down best show you’ve ever been to? And what made it so memorable?
October 15, 2000 – Jimmy Eat Word, Pedro the Lion, & Death Cab for Cutie at the Fireside Bowl in Chicago, IL; I was still in high school and drove three hours with some friends to Chicago to see these relatively unknown bands (at the time) play at bowling alley for a whopping $8.
Runner Ups –
May 31, 2012 – Bon Iver & Feist at Red Rocks; Beautiful evening, Perfect temperatures, and an impeccable mix. May have teared just a bit. Here’s a little video I captured.
April 21, 2005 – U2 Vertigo Tour at the Pepsi Center; This was my first time seeing U2. Megan got me tickets for my birthday, and we attended the 2nd night of a sold out show. Everything about it was just right. Definitely cried through a couple songs. No shame.
