HE, how are The Killers live?

Dude, they were amazing.  Brandon Flowers has amazing stage presence.  Talk about someone who was born to be a rock star.  The crowd sang along to every song.  They have like 3 more shows and then they are heading back to the studio.

I'll be taking in my first show in oh, say, 8 years? Micheal Graves, ex-Misfits lead singer, has 2 projects, one of which being a self-titled horror-punk band a la Misfits. Sunday night show in Downtown Minneapolis, I'm pretty stoked, as is the girly.

I'm eagerly awaiting my tickets to see Cream at Madison Square Garden.  I still cannot believe that I'm going to see this show in person.  I almost have to pinch myself!

Cream would be awesome to see.  I had a chance to win tickets to see them in England, but unfortunately didn't win.

Next concert for me is Judas Priest on Tuesday.  They were a blast when I was young, but now I feel like getting out my Rock Star: The Movie t-shirt :P

And yes, the tickets were free.  Picked them up the same day Scott rolled up for Pearl Jam.

The Michale Graves show tonight was absolutely insane. Although relegated to a small Downtown Minneapolis pub, he blew the roof off of the place. Ripped through classic and modern Misfits tracks, as well as those off of his S/T solo album.

I've got tickets to see the UR DC of "Land of the Dead" tomorrow night, but after the incredible night I had, I think we're traveling to St. Cloud to see him again. He's an incredibly personable guy. I spoke to him on two occassions, and he even signed 3 Misfits/Graves pieces!

While not technically a concert, I saw Lewis Black last night on his Nothing Sacred Tour. He was pretty funny, and even signed autographs after the show!

I just saw former Genesis/GTR guitarist Steve Hackett perform an acoustic show this past Friday. Very underrated guitarist, awsome set.

I caught Meshuggah a couple of days ago.
Whoa. Feeling those low end polymetric riffs, while people (kids) can still head bob to  the basic beat, amazing. I've been wanting to see a show like that since I was 16.  I don't even go to metal shows anymore.

Heading to the Ryman Sunday night to check out Ben Folds and The Fray. First concert I've been to since I saw Kings of Leon (also at the Ryman) a couple months ago. The Ryman has been getting some killer concerts lately, I know Bright Eyes is playing there very soon, and I would have loved to have gone to seem them/him, but time kind of slipped away from me.
