Musicals are wonderful! If we're listing those, too, then I can say I jsut recently saw Hairspray here. :D

Christina Perri was cool, but I totally goofed and left my camera (and phone) in the car, so for once in my life, no piccies!

Last one was 1964 - a Beatles Tribute band. Got to sit in the VIP section (though we never actually sat) and met the guys after the show. It was a blast!

We had SO much fun at 3 Dropkick Murphys shows last month. Vancouver's crowd was AMAZING! So fun to see people really embrace the opening acts, too.

The Parkington Sisters opened up, then Chuck Ragan was next, then DKM. Both openers were terrific. Chuck Ragan is one of my most favorite artists; seeing him (and his fiddle player, John Gaunt, and his bass player, Joe Ginsberg) 3 nights in a row was a dream come true. Such honest music and talent. Wonderful to see.

Seeing DKM, HUGE Boston Bruin fans, in Vancouver, a week or so after the Canucks lost to the Bruins was awesome! They came out to "We Are the Champions", had a Bruins B on the drum set, two of the band members were wearing Bruins shirts. Plus they plaid their "Time To Go" song and had a poster made with one of the DKM singers holding the Stanley Cup. It was hilarious! Plus, they were selling a shirt that said "Bite This Burrows" on the back (which I bought, of course, since I'm a huge Bruins fan).

Seattle fans were kind of drags...they don't seem to get into opening acts much. Blah. Portland was a lot more fun. I danced and sang my rear end off at all shows.

I'm getting kind of old to travel from town to town seeing bands, all while going to work each day. I was exhausted! (And yet, fired up to do it some more! LOL)

Might go to a local Irish/punk dive bar tonight to see a band called The Hollowpoints. Our friend, who has done our past few tattoos, is in a relationship with the bass player. We had seen the band a few times before meeting the artist, who is also friends with a Portland band we've seen play about 20 times. Small world. :-)

Anyway, we've been trying to see The Hollowpoints again for months and months and something always comes up. Crossing fingers. Ha.

For me, it would be last Thursday evening at Hollywood Bowl. Dudamel conducting, with Pinchas Zuckerman as violin soloist for the Bruch Concerto. Also on the program: the Lizst Hungarian Rhapsody, the Enescu Romanian Rhapsody, and two (three, counting a Borge-esque performance of the Pizzicato Polka as an encore) from Johann Strauss the Younger.

Before that, it was this past Tuesday evening, an all-Mozart (except for an unnamed solo encore) program with Dudamel conducting and violinist Gil Shaham. And the Tuesday before that (repeated that Thursday) was Dudamel and pianist Lang Lang in a program of Russian music (the Borodin Polovtsian Dances, the Prokofiev Concerto, and Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition.

Tomorrow night will be the Dvorak Carnival Overture, the Tchaikovsky First Piano Concerto, and the Sibelius Second Symphony, with Vasily Petrenko conducting (giving Dudamel the night off), and pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk. This Thursday evening will be Petrenko conducting again, this time performing the Glinka "Russlan and Ludmilla" overture, the Sibelius violin concerto (with LAPhil Principal Concertmaster Martin Chalifour), and the Dvorak 9th ("New World") Symphony.

Saturday night at the Hollywood Bowl we saw Dolly Parton. She is a hoot - but it was a bit too religious for my taste. I knew she loved the lord but she REALLY loves the lord.

She is just amazing though. Great stories and great humor. And you could hear a pin drop during most of the songs. Very much respect was paid for sure.

The last concert I went to was Stevie Wonder. I went with my husband, two kids (one teen, one young adult), Lisann22, her mom, and her sister. We had a great time.

Last night at the Bowl was incredible. I can't remember ever hearing a better performance of the Tchiakovsky Piano Concerto No. 1. And the Dvorak and the Sibelius were also spectacular.
