Responses

  1. oh i really like this 2nd page with the concerts (even though your music festivals shouldn’t count as more than 1 show!)

    same logic–> opening acts you saw should count as 1 band.

  2. Haha, the goal was 50 live acts, not 50 individual concerts – and I only count the openers that factored into the calculus involved with me going to the show.

    So though there are 48 bands currently listed, I am at 43. 🙂

    Also, I forgot to buy Arctic Monkeys tickets today… wamp wamp.

  3. I can’t find the amazing electronica artists such as Max Graham, Above and Beyond, Sasha or Digweed ?!

    Hope all is well..

  4. Je vous presente un nouveau blog qui vient d’ouvrir sur le theme de la mutuelle vous trouverai toutes les infos utiles
