Woohoo! I get to see this guy in February:
My favorite country singer, Dierks Bentley, is coming back to Joe’s in February for his CD release show! His tour is named Country and Cold Cans. I will obviously be enjoying my country music this time without a cold can =) If you remember, I saw him at a concert outside of Joe’s in October. And it was great! This show will be smaller since it will be inside, and it’s going to be great. Tickets were only $25 and include his new CD, which I was going to buy on Itunes anyways. I also plan on being in the front row, so that is one deal. I started to become a big fan about 3 or 4 years and having been waiting for him to come to Joe’s ever since.
You might hear me talking about shows at Joe’s bars a lot. I’ve been to quite a few. Here’s who I have seen in the last year or so:
Wow, what a great year in concerts. I have become quite the concert snob. Ever since seeing my favorites in small venues, I don’t like going to big concerts. Small venues or festivals is where it’s at. I saw Zac Brown at the Sear Center in November, and although they were great, I couldn’t help thinking how much greater it could have been in a smaller venue. Other then the concerts from the last year, I have also seen the following in small venues:
Justin Timberlake- House of Blue Chicago: My favorite show of ALL TIME. I mean, it’s Justin. That’s pretty much when I fell in love 😉 That was when Future/Sex LoveSounds, (Sexy Back just came out as a single) was released. And I was basically in 3rd row. AMAZING. I had amazing videos that have since disappeared with my old phone. I really hope that phone is somewhere in this condo.
Blink 182- House of Blues
Rascal Flatts- Joe’s
Dierks- Ravenswood Billboard Factory for a taping of PBS’s Live from the Artist’s Den- This is when I became a huge fan, although I liked his music before the concert. After- I was obsessed.
My top two shows have been J. T. and Brad Paisley at Joe’s. I already explained J.T. I was probably about 3rd row for Brad. What an amazing musician; even more so when you see him play up so close. H played the guitar with a beer bottle at one point.
Okay, well that’s the end of my concert pics and reviews! If you ever have a chance to see a show in a small place, do it!
