Tune in Tuesday (17) - Concert Edition!

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly music feature hosted by the fabulous Ginger at GReads. As some of you may know, I am ridiculously addicted to music. One of my favorite things to do is share new and favorite songs with anyone willing to listen. Or not so willing. I'm not picky. Anyway... Each week you can post a song and share the love of music.

This month is going to be seriously epic. Why, might you ask? Because it's Concert Edition at Tune in Tuesday, of course! All month long we'll be featuring bands or musicians we've seen or want to see. So link up and join the fun!

For this week's edition, I decided to share music from the first concert I ever went to. Then I had a problem... what was the first concert I ever attended? Curse this horrible memory of mine! I shake my fist at you. Anyway, after trying to go back through the years, I think I've finally remembered what my first concert was: Sugarcult headlining, with Quietdrive and All Time Low opening. The concert was on my University campus - in 2006, I think?? lol! - and only cost $5, so that was pretty sweet. AND I got to go with two of my good friends, Stephanie and Adam. Steph and I were able to get right up against the stage, smack dab in the center... it was awesome. From then on I was hooked on concerts... I still love jammin' out, though it's been over a year since my last concert. Withdrawal! So, without further ado, here are some of my favorite songs performed during the concert... I think one from each band should be fun. Happy listening!! :)

First up, Memory, from their album Palm Trees and Power Lines. I had a tough time choosing which was my favorite from their performance. I mean, Memory is such a classic Sugarcult song! However, when I attended this particular concert, their album Lights Out was getting ready to be released (or they were working on it or it had just come out... I can't remember) and I absolutely fell in love with The Investigation. I mean, really? It's fantastic! So, I'm going to post TWO Sugarcult songs. They were the headliners, after all... so why shouldn't they have two songs?! Bwahah. Enjoy!

Next up we have Rise from the Ashes from Quietdrive's debut album, When All That's Left Is You. This whole album is freakin' awesome. If you haven't already, you should totally check it out. I love this song! Another one of my favorite tracks they performed that night was a cover of Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time. It took a while for this awesome cover to get the notice it so deserved, but I'm sure everyone's heard it by now. If not, go here to listen to it!

And last, but not least, we have Break Out! Break Out! from the EP Put Up or Shut Up. Oh the early All Time Low... lol. ATL was totally new to me (and I think most people) at the time of this concert, but I remember liking their sound and thinking that they seemed super fun. Now practically everyone knows who they are! Strange how quickly things can change, huh!? Good times, good times.

So... what concert(s) rocked you?!


  1. A concert for only $5??? Is that even possible anymore? haha Gotta love those first time shows :-)

  2. Wow...5 dollars! and All Time Low in the mix. I was going to go see them last month when they cruised thru town, but there were several other concerts that were on my list of bigger see's. If only all concerts were 5.00 I could see all of the ones that came to town!

  3. wow ...that brings back memories of my first concert at Great America with Rick Astley ...yes it was the 90's....

  4. Ahh! I'm so jealous that you got to see Sugarcult in concert!!

  5. I am jealous. Like seriously jealous right now! $5 for an awesome lineup like that? All Time Low is HILARIOUS in concert. I would love to see Sugarcult and Quietdrive though!

  6. @Ginger - I know, right? Insanely cheap. I mean, it was $15 for non-students, but still... cheap!

    @Tee - Yes! That would be awesome! We should start a movement. lol

    @Julie - Hey, the 90's were pretty awesome, too. :) Glad I could help you reminisce.

    @Shannon - I was so excited!!! They had been a favorite for ages, so it was awesome to see them live! :)

    @Katelyn - I know, right?! I loved all of the performances AND it was so cheap! Thank goodness for student discounts, eh? lol. OH! And I agree, All Time Low is funny live.
