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!! :)
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!
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!
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?!
