Bands I've Seen IN CONCERT





THE FLESHTONES


First, I must mention that this post will be a work in progress. There will undoubtedly be bands that I don't remember. Also, any bands that I have seen more than once, will feature a number in (parantheses), following the name of the band. The list will be a little bit chronological, but any bands forgotten during the initial post, will just be listed at the end. ALSO, I am including bands that I have seen at festivals, but will NOT include bands that I did not actively watch. Does that make sense? I hope so...

So... here we go...

Obviously several were forgotten at this point, either because they are slipping my mind, or I can't remember their name... like the blond singer/songwriter that I saw open up for Tears For Fears, after Roland went off by himself... you know the one, she had a voice like Janis Joplin's... very powerful...that long curly hair... anyhow, there are a few like that. Hopefully they will find their way on to the list!

It IS hard to remember everyone you've seen, huh! I'll hafta see if I can come up with a list, too. Cuz I'm a copycat that way.

I was actually just gonna ask if you knew of October Project, cuz they seemed like a group you'd like!

Wow... now that I think about it, I need to add another Sarah Mclachlan and October Project to the list. We saw them twice in a month's time.
