We Love the Music

Mike and I love to go to concerts together!
We go as much as we can and for me sometimes the smaller the venue, the better!
I like being up close to my bands.
Like when we saw Elle King at The Old Rock House here in town. That is definitely a small venue and we were right in front of the stage.
And this pic is from a road trip we took up to Milwaukee to see El Vy at the Turner Ballroom. We had to literally drive through a snowstorm to get home the next day, but it was worth it!
This pic of course is U2 here in St. Louis in 2011. Not a small venue, but up close to them is always good. :)

In fact, I have a running list I keep of all the bands Mike and I have seen together including the opening acts.
The very first concert we ever went to together was before we were even dating! We saw Weezer and the band Live at the American Theater, which is no longer around. So that show will always hold a special place in my heart because it was our first concert together.

A few other favorites are (not counting U2 of course):

Arctic Monkeys
Alabama Shakes
The National
Alt J
Jane's Addiction
No Doubt
Portugal The Man
The Black Keys

That's just a small number. We have seen 50+ bands together over the years!
(Elle King)

(Alabama Shakes)
(The Sheep Dogs)

(And U2 once again in Chicago this month)

We actually saw Portugal the Man and Electric Guest last night at another favorite venue - The Pageant but the lighting was so bad we couldn't get a good photo at all. 

And now we are looking forward to seeing U2 again in the fall here in St. Louis! Our General Admission tickets are bought and now we just have to wait.


  1. So awesome you see so many concerts together!!! I love that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. That is AWESOME! I love concerts and we don't go as much as I would like to. You have seen some great ones and some fantastic venues.

  3. I have to admit I haven't heard of some of these bands. LOL! It's fun that you guys have a tradition to see your favorites whenever you can. :)

  4. So nice! Since my dh is not a "crowd" person, I have seen few concerts with him and more with my daughters or other family! Heard U2 added New Orleans to its tour dates, but alas....sigh...I won't be there.
