Apostrophy Designs: 5 Fav Concerts...

5 Fav Concerts...

I mentioned in another post of the much anticpated favorite concert list, I have been thinking of it for awhile and even went through my box of old stubs... I do this list with a bit of reluctancy because I feel there is a concert out there I really enjoyed and have forgotten it, so left-out concert I apologize. Here it goes...

5- Britney Spears with O-Town... Ok, I admit that this was even a favorite but let me explain. I was a junior or sophomore in high school and O-Town had just finished their stint on MTV... So I was mostly excited to see them, but I remember being really impressed with Britney as well (obviously this was way before she went crazy!). Also, I went with two of my sisters, Traci and Tami, and we were loud and danced like crazy!!! Here was my favorite song from the concert...Lucky...

4- Gwen Stefani -- Again this is a concert I went to but with all of my sisters...Tifani, Tami, Traci and Jill (sister-in-law, but sister still the same). We danced and laughed and made fun of people around us... My favorite song from the concert...Early Winter...

3- Guster. I went with my good friend Kami to this concert and it was a blast!! I really enjoyed the drummer, anyone who has seen guster can back me up. The best part was at the end of the concert how the drummer came back on the stage and sang Total Eclipse of the Heart. I am telling you people these are the things you never forget...here's a clip...

2- New Pornographers. I know that this was a recent concer but I feel no other concert has made me listen to a CD quite like this one had... I think last week my counter said 93 time I had listened to the New Pornographers...wahoo! The concert was awesome not ever have I seen so many people on one stage singing so well together, plus, who doesn't love Neko Case?? My favorite song from the concert and album...Go Places...can't find on YouTube so close second...Challengers...

1- The Killers!! I went to this concert with Don & Co. when we were dating... The Killers hadn't become big yet and so there were only about 30 or so people there...including his grandparents and we met them...boo yeah!! It was crazy I bet a lot of the crowd was his family...but it was awesome and it sparked the love of my favorite Killers song... Indie Rock n Roll...




**Close Call Concerts...The Editors, AFI, Weezer, The Pixies, and Interpol (1st Time).
***I believe atmosphere really helps in making a concert... some of these may seem dumb but it's all in context people.
****Concert hopes to see in the future...Neil Diamond, Celine Dion, and Wayne Newton...only serious on one of those...

Oh Tori Jo. My #1 is also The Killers. That concert was SO awesome! I will never forget how freaking hot it was and how for about 5 minutes I had a mini crush on Jeff Thompson. Not to mention Brandon Flowers was smoking hot-especially since he wore his suit the whole time. I was hoping he might take it off. Haha! One final memory from it...the hand motions Don made up for "I've got soul, but I'm not a soldier...". I loved it!

Well done Tori! Totally agree with your New Pornographers comments, "Go Places" was a true highlight. However, I was a bit surprised Biffy Clyro didn't make the top 5. I know how you like shirtless, tattooed, Scottish lads playing relentless Math Rock with sugary harmonies. I suppose it is difficult to beat out Britney and O-Town.

Nice Tor! It was fun to read why these are your top 5. I will have to copy and do this on my blog someday.

Go Britney!!!

Katie said...

I love the Killers. Ryan and I really want to go see them sometime.

Tori said...

**Jill, it was fun huh!!
**Ade, I think that's why I love Don is because of the hand motions...ha ha!!
**Soffe, Biffy was an unexpected favorite... they would maybe be 6...seriously.
**Do...it...Do it NOW, Amy.
**Katie, I would recommend them...especially if Ryan could score you guys some good seats!!!

Nice Job Tori! I agree with you on New Pornographers. So much fun! Even with the crazy drunk girls. They just made it even more memorable. Don't let Soffe tease you about Britney & O-Town...he went to Mandy Moore & he loved it! If Brittney was good enough for Justin Timberlake back then...she should be good enough for us!
