Oh man, I should be studying something neurophysiology-related right now but I can't help myself....I'll rush my answers
First concert: Bob Dylan, 17/08/07. Went with my mum because I wasn't allowed to go on my own (and none of my friends would be seen dead at a Dylan gig...) and she fell asleep and snored through most of it. Oh gosh.
- OK Go the other week. I'd barely heard of them but my boyfriend's really into them and I bought him the tickets as a surprise...and ended up enjoying it more than he did, I think! Damian Kulash is certainly a character, not to mention incredibly sexy (boyfriend did NOT like my squealing and such
) They have such amazing live shows, with glitter, confetti, fluffy guitars, LED jackets, handbells...
This was also the first time I'd ever been to a concert with someone else (excluding Mother) because no-one likes the same music as me!
- Sarah Blasko last October. I LOVE HER. I don't think she's very famous overseas but, seriously, everyone, YouTube her or something if you don't know her. Her live shows are always very theatrical as well, and she's just gorgeous. She did all the songs from her latest album wearing this strange costume that looked like a cross between Bowie's Ashes to Ashes clown thing and one of those little multicoloured plastic windmills you put in the garden. She also has a very idiosyncratic style of dance that you just have to see; it's very cute.
Worst concert/disappointment: Probably the Dylan one... Let's face it, his voice was never great and now it's just...um....[avoids finishing sentence.] I was seated two rows from the back in a HUGE arena and Dylan doesn't have a big screen behind him at his shows. Plus my mum falling asleep and me being too embarrassed to really focus on the music....
This Saturday I'm seeing the Dead Weather, which I've been waiting for since they first formed; sadly going to that all on my lonesome...
Then in May I'm going to a festival in the country where I'll be seeing Vampire Weekend (really into them ever since my boyfriend got their new album and played it non-stop in the car until I was forced to like them
) amongst others. Very excited!
