50 Concerts!

This meme’s going around Facebook, but I wanted to post it here.

Here are the rules. Test your memory and your love of live music by listing 50 artists or bands (or as many as you can remember) you’ve seen in concert. List the first 50 acts that come into your head. An act you saw at a festival and opening acts count, but only if you can’t think of 50 other artists. Oh, and list the first concert you ever saw (you can remember that, can’t you)?

  1. The Tea Party (x10)
  2. VAST (x6, I think)
  3. Tool
  4. Nine Inch Nails (x2)
  5. The National (x2)
  6. Andrew Bird (x4)
  7. Of Montreal (x4)
  8. The Decemberists (x3)
  9. Neko Case (x3)
  10. Bloc Party
  11. Britney Spears (seriously!)
