  17. Saw Wilco this summer.
    Best show of my life.

    3. Wilco
    4. Sufjan Stevens

    6. Ani Difrano *seen her twice
    7. Regina

  19. My Top 5:

    Band of Horses
    Regina Spektor
    Avett Brothers (seen them twice but can't get enough)
    The Weepies
    Ray Lamontagne

    Saw Radiohead last year and they were amazing!!!!

  20. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Radiohead and Bjork live. Funny story about Bjork. When my husband and I first started dating, we used to go to this one LES club all the time, and one night, as I was sitting near the stage area of the place, I was telling him how much I LOVE Bjork, and he pointed to the little lady next to me. And it was HER! I freaked out and nearly ran out of the club. She's amazing.

    I saw Rufus Wainwright at Carnegie Hall doing the Judy Garland concert, which was one of the best concerts ever. If only for the grand venue and his sister Martha, who did a few spine-chilling numbers.

    Wow this comment is long. My sister recently went to see Jarvis Cocker live; and even though I'd seen him as part of Pulp, I'd love to see him live...

    Arcade Fire would be wonderful live, too, I think.


  21. Oh damn. I just saw someone wrote Sigur Ros. I adore them, too. So please add them to my list :)

  22. Oh very good! Radiohead is by far one of the best I've ever seen; Thom Yorke probably takes tons of drugs and thus dances and shrieks and loves life like a crazy man. And Bjork was good, but you could tell everything is choreographed to the extremity, which made it feel a bit stiff. But not at all, because how can you call flame throwers and an 8 girl brass band dancing in TeleTubby-like outfits stiff?

    I would love to see Beirut and Blur. If I were time traveled to 3 decades ago, I would love to see the Talking Heads and The Damned.

    And sub category, the best show I've ever seen? It's a tie. Goes to Brian Jonestown Massacre, !!!, and Hot Chip - I'm not the biggest fan of their music, actually, but ohmygoodness, what a fun show they put on!

  23. belle and sebastian, iron and wine and the shins. best bands to watch live! i'm in the process of scanning all my ticket stubs since jr high. it's an epic post but you've seen some amazing bands already!

  24. I would love to see Muse, Radiohead and Franz Ferdinand.
    I would've loved to see The Clash even more though :(
    I would also like to add The Spice Girls to this list...I'll admit this.

  25. My list:

    Bob Dylan (done)
    Tom Waits (done)
    Magnetic Fields (done)
    The Cure (done)
    Sonic Youth (done)
    The Pixies (in November!)

    Not too shabby... I'm knocking them out!

  26. I'd always wanted to see U2 and I will be seeing them just an hour away in October!

  27. that is a lovely list. we just saw wilco and loooooved them. my husband's favorite. i also love, radiohead, band of horses, rufus, dmb and mason!!

  28. After living in Nashville and going to Bonnaroo for a couple of years my list of people I've seen is wayyy too long, but here are some people you MUST see:

    The Avett Brothers. I've seen them five times and they're amazing.

    Devendra Banhart. He's so much fun live.

    Adele. She's so adorable and she was so nervous!

    Ben Harper. He's magical.

    Girl Talk. The best dance party you'll ever go to.

    Ray LaMontagne. Practically a religious experience.

    No Doubt. Gwen Stefani is so good and her outfits are incredible and their concerts are crazy.

    I'm so happy you got to see Regina! I can't wait for her to add Nashville to her dates. I haven't seen her in over a year and I'm dying!
