Stoked!



It is time for the annual Not So Silent Night concert & WE GOT TICKETS!!!!!!!!!

Check out this lineup:

The Killers
Modest Mouse
The Raconteurs
The Shins
The Silversun Pickups

I haven't paid to see a show in AGES due to the generosity of my sister who shared the sweet perks she received when she was working. Lemme see, I got to see U2 twice, Depeche Mode, Tori Amos, Madonna, Elton John, B-52's, Missy Elliott, Alicia Keyes, Motley Crue...for free...box seats & beer included...oh, yeah, and PARKING....all thanks to my sis.

This show, though, this show is worth the $45/ticket. So many great bands. Although, I'll admit that I'm not toooo sure about Modest Mouse - aren't they an "O.C." band? When I heard that the Silversun Pickups* were part of the lineup - it was a done deal for me. So, I sat right by my computer, credit card in hand and got our tix as soon as the clock ticked 10am this morning!! Woo! Hoo!

Imagine my excitement when I got home this evening and found out that the concert is now sold out. I am soo glad that I didn't drag my feet on this one!

I'm feeling luckier every second!!

Maybe this will be my lucky week??



*If you haven't heard the Silversun Pickups - check out their single "Lazy Eye". It is awesome. If you are a fan of Billy Corgan, and the Smashing Pumpkins, you might really like these guys. Try it, you might love it!! Click here for a little bit about the band, if you're interested......

You probably will be hard pressed to ever find such a great lineup again. Can't wait to hear about it.

I feel old - I don't know any of those bands!

What an awesome line-up. I think the only concert that was free for me as an adult was Barry Manilow. Heh. However, I paid to see U2, The Cure, Nirvana, etc.

You hated Fight Club??? I'm so disappointed, haha:) Seriously, check out Garden State--it is really awesome. I told my hubby about your upcoming concert and he was so jealous! We would both love that. Now, if I could only get the chance to see Superchunk or Interpol....!

Krista said...

Uhhhhh.. don't know them either. We must not get that kind of music out here in the sticks. LOL!

Wooohooo! Sounds like a blast. You're just rockin and rollin on the good stuff right now. Enjoy it and have fun, fun, fun.

That sounds like a great line-up! I only go to concerts if I really really like the band. Or if it's free!
You'd like the Garden State soundtrack (someone else mentioned the movie, which is totally awesome, too, but we're talking music right now).
