My addiction

This addiction has taken over life since March 22, 1993. Did I start smoking or drinking that day? No. It was my first concert (without parents). I'm hooked.

By looking at the list it's obvious that I'm not into one certain band. Sure, there's a few that I've seen multiple times, but how many people have gone to a Dave Matthews Band show and then see Jay-Z five days later? Or cKy with a Coldplay concert a couple weeks apart? I rest my case.

It's really funny how many of your concerts I was at also on different (CA) stops. Off the top of my head, I remember:

TTWS in 94
Bush & Veruca Salt in 97
Counting Crows & Live in 2000
Pearl Jam & Supergrass in 2000

Pete Yorn coming this month
Ray LaMontagne coming in Sept.

How were The Format? They are coming through these parts soon, I am TOTALLY going to see them. I love them.

PS - I save all my ticket stubs too.
