Best of 2013

 

My top 11 shows of 2013 in no particular order –

  1. Lady Gaga – Rose Garden Arena before they changed the name to something less desirable…
  2. Elton John – The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in Vegas
  3. The Neighbourhood – Crystal Ballroom
  4. Letlive. – Expo Center – Warped Tour, despite it being a short set the band was explosive and memorable. Things were thrown. Pants were thrashed off.
  5. Beyonce – MGM Grand Garden Arena in Vegas- Because Bey.
  6. Fall Out Boy – Roseland Theater – I got to see Pete Wentz in his favorite skirt.
  7. AFI- Roseland Theater – Davey Havok vogueing and walking on heads is a site to be seen on halloween.
  8. Icona Pop – The Metro in Chicago
  9. Nine Inch Nails – The Moda Center – Probably one of the coolest visual displays I’ve seen ever.
  10. 30 Seconds To Mars – Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Chula Vista – I could easily just say X-Fest in its entirety for this.
  11. Blink-182 because well….I can’t help myself.
