Seen ’em live

Florence Welch, of Florence and the Machine. I took this photo in 2010!

Music is a big, big, MAJOR part of my life. Seeing bands live is one of my favorite things. I’ve been going to concerts since I was 15. They are hands down some of the best times I’ve had.

I made a list of bands that I had to see when I moved to Germany. These are bands that I had never gotten to see in the US, because they were either not touring, or didn’t bother to tour America. Here’s the list of the ‘must see’s while living in Europe’:
Faithless (June, 2010: Southside Festival)
Massive Attack (June, 2010: Southside Festival)
Placebo (November 2009, Stuttgart)
Tricky (November 2010, Köln)
Portishead
Hooverphonic

Overall, I’ve been wildly successful. Portishead is touring this summer, so my list will be nearly complete after that!
