While all three concerts I saw this week were fabulous, there was something very special about the San Diego show last night. True, Costa Mesa brought 2 sold out shows in an 8500 seat outdoor amphitheater with well laid out seating and sound. Yes, I *did* end up just three rows behind the folks in... Continue Reading →
25th anniversary of Live Aid – and one other Big Event :-)
There were more than a few posts yesterday around the internet to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Live Aid concerts. And yet, I associate Live Aid with July 14th for a very good reason I will outline in a moment. It was really bugging me why I am 100% certain I was watching this... Continue Reading →
Happy 4th! Now even more sparkly!
What? You expected fireworks? Oh no, my blog deserves better. Adam Lambert is more sparkly & glittery than those 🙂 He's also a true American success story. Can't think of a better way to celebrate what our country means than to feature him. My goodness would you look at that beautiful man? And how cool... Continue Reading →
Do I really need to act my age?
Because getting up at 3am to drive downtown to sit in line outside a theater box office for 9 hours with like minded Adam Lambert fans kinda sounds like a fun adventure! Thank you, Ticketmaster & StubHub scalpers for making this little outing *necessary* for fans who couldn't afford to pay sky high markup and/or... Continue Reading →
Memory test – can you remember all the concerts you’ve attended?
A cool meme went around on Facebook recently asking people to post the first concert they went to. It was a lot of fun to see friend's answers - my favorite, or, the one I was most jealous of, was Led Zeppelin in Madison Square Garden in 1970. Amazing, classic, historic band in an equally...

Concert etiquette and how do you make those videos?
As I slowly return to reality post-concert, it occurred to me that I need to rant a bit about something I kind of glossed over in my long concert review. This concerns concert etiquette. Here are some things that are sure to set me off if you are around me at a concert: Drinking Eating... Continue Reading →
Concert memories – You have the tickets, right?
As I type this, SportsBoy is enjoying his Christmas gift from his dad - they are at the AC/DC concert in LA tonight! It's his first rock concert and of course it HAD to be that band since his dad and I have been poisoning him with their music for a very long time :-)... Continue Reading →
My night out
Tonight was Only Child night out. IOW I bought myself one ticket to a concert to see Alanis Morrisette. I go by myself because no one else would be as into it as me 🙂 Well, perhaps that is not entirely correct as there as another woman there by herself who definitely was as into... Continue Reading →
First, a gratuitous Amber pic because she just looks so damn cute utterly passed out in the sun in her little kitty condo: OK, feeling better after a shower and successfully sending Sportsboy off with a buddy to his tournament games. Oh, and a Starbucks mocha..those *really* help shake off the cobwebs and annoyances :-)... Continue Reading →
Friday..err..early Sat am Happy Story
If there was a Happy Story diary tonight on DailyKos, I missed it. It's been a tradition though that I come home from a Friday night concert and share my happy story about it in there. Then I remembered "hey, I have a blog!"Lenny Kravtiz opened for Aerosmith tonight. DS1 and Jacqueline joined me for... Continue Reading →
