Tune In Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Ginger @ GReads so you should head on over and link up! It is a great way to bounce from blog to blog and discover what others are listening to! I love music but there is so much out there that I haven’t heard of before. That being said, feel free to leave a link to your Tune-In Tuesday post!
This is the third week in Tune In Tuesday Concert Edition! It is a month-long feature where we talk about our favorite concerts, ones we want to see, or ones we will be seeing in the near future. For this week I decided to go with a list of performers/bands I have not seen in concert yet. (The major word being YET)
I consider myself very lucky when it comes to the amount of concerts I get to go see every year. Right now I am at about 4-5 concerts (at least) per year but I would love to raise that number even more, especially now that I have a steady job. Over the years I have been able to attend awesome events and see all sorts of bands live. BUT there are some bands that visit MI and leave before I get a chance to see them. Some of the bands that I would love to see and will pretty much die happy if I do get to see are:
I am a HUGE fan of Augustana. When I saw they were touring MI a few months ago I freaked out BUT then they canceled the tour and my heart broke. However, I now have something to look forward to! They plan to be in MI on January 30th. Can you guess who is going to try to get front row at that concert? This girl right here!
This is one of those bands that came to MI and snuck out before I got a chance to see them. Actually Chris Carrabba was playing an acoustic performance the same night of another concert I was attending so there was just no way. I would LOVE to see them sometime soon though. Their music is just so amazing.
All American Rejects
I love these guys so much. In fact if you look at my comment on Tee’s post last week, you just might spot some drool residue. I have been in love with them since I heard the lyrics of Swing, Swing while at recess in middle school. Since then, my obsession has only grown and I will not be happy until I get to see them live. And yes, I will be the crazy fan in the front row trying to tear their shirts off.
Plain White T’s
There is just something about their music that is soothing, lovely, and adorable. I have a feeling they wouldn’t be the normal type of concert I attend, they would be a bit more mellow but they are still someone I would love to see live. You can’t listen to the lyrics of this song or Hey There Delilah, and not love them!
These guys were at Warped Tour the very first year that I went and I missed them! I had no idea they were there until I met up with another group of my friends later on and one of them showed me her picture with the band. I almost started crying! I imagine sitting on a beach somewhere, watching the sun set, and having them play a small concert for anyone gathering around. I know the odds of this actually happening are slim to none but I can always hope.
Yes, Ginger has made me a SafetySuit fan. Yes, I will buy their CD even if half of the songs are on my iPod just so I can listen to it in the car. No, I am not against driving across states to see them. Seriously guys, LISTEN TO GINGER! She is not lying when she fan-girls all over these guys saying how truly amazing they are. Listen to her tweets, read her posts, they are ALL telling the truth. This band is amazeballs!
I love these girls. I think they are edgy, unique, fun, and just so freaking cool! I think their concert would be like one epic dance party that you just DON’T want to miss. I can only imagine Kati and I going crazy, dancing like maniacs, singing super loud, and having the best time ever at one of their concerts.
So there’s the list of some bands I would just love to see! As of right now, a lot of them have absolutely no tour information posted on their websites but it is my goal to see at least half of them within the next year!
Of course they are not the only ones I would love to see in concert though! The Avett Brothers, Parachute, Walk The Moon, The Cab, Boyce Avenue, Hawthorne Heights, The Killers, and Mayday Parade would also be some super epic concerts! I think they would all put on a good show.
FICTIONAL CONCERT I AM DYING TO SEE:
That moment in Second Helpings by Megan McCafferty, when Marcus Flutie takes the stage, is enough to capture any girl’s heart. You have to read the book to fully understand what I am talking about but that song, yes, that song, is what I really want to see played live one day. I have a feeling if it were to be a real performance at a real party, I would have beaten Jessica Darling (even though I love her to pieces) just so Marcus could be mine. I realize how psychotic that makes me sound but if you (or once you…) know the words to the song and what happens following it, your heart will just flutter.
