I've been to a lot of great concerts in my life. Some favorites include Andrew Bird in NYC, The Flaming Lips and Beck, Wilco, Iron & Wine, The Shins and Belle & Sebastian at the Hollywood Bowl. And of course I'll never forget the small, intimate shows, sitting in a circle and singing along with people like Mirah or Phil Elverum of The Microphones. (Note to self: still really need to see Radiohead.)
There are very few moments when I feel more alive than I do when I'm in a room surrounded by incredible music, and by people who appreciate it the way I do.
Over the weekend I saw Sufjan Stevens perform at Mesa Arts Center^. It was a little bit wild and seriously amazing. And I remembered once again why I love live music.
