I’m quite proud of my habit of keeping pop-culture ephemera, such as this program from Madonna’s 1987 AIDS benefit concert and a Duran Duran ticket stub from the same year. However, my high-school friend Jim Begala wins the prize for keeping everything. Jim previously confirmed the exact date of a 1984 INXS concert for me, […]

I usually blog about the concerts I go to, but I never wrote about the four shows I saw in November. My concert friend Jessie and I saw Marina and the Diamonds for the third time this year at Terminal 5 on November 10. As you can see from this video, we didn’t get there […]

I like to catch Ringo Starr‘s show whenever he’s in town, so I got tickets for his October 31 concert at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. I figured I’d dress the part of a Beatles fan in the “Mod girl” outfit I’d worn once before for Halloween. It wasn’t until last week that I realized I’d […]

I never got around to doing a post on the Foo Fighters concert I went to in July. I was lazy about putting a watermark across the important parts of all my photos before sharing them. I had to start putting my name on concert photos after I discovered a few of my old ones […]

Back in the day, when Madonna would play a series of New York City dates, I’d get tickets to one show and say, “I want to do it again!” as soon as the house lights went up. I finally figured out it was best to always get tickets to two shows, which is why I […]

If you had told 1980s me that, in the distant future, I’d see Duran Duran once and Madonna twice in a single week, I would have been mind-blowingly happy … but not totally surprised.  I always promised myself that when I graduated from high school, I’d move to New York, where I would find like-minded […]

I’m having a belated, band-related fashion trauma! Ten days ago, I saw Duran Duran for the first time since 1987. The band was at Terminal 5 in New York to support their new album, Paper Gods, and my designing friend Stacy Lomman and I were there in the second row. That day, I deeply regretted […]

I’ve been meaning to write about the Taylor Swift concert I attended on July 11, when I had to chaperone a major fangurl all the way to MetLife Stadium in New Jersey … … but I was lazy about getting all my concert photos watermarked. However, there’s no time like the present to get organized, […]

I was in Chicago over the weekend to visit family and attend the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Ill. The festival’s website says Ravinia (named for the Ravinia Park grounds where it is held) is the oldest outdoor music festival in North America. Who knew?! Ravinia isn’t a stand-all-day-to-see-Eminem, Lollapalooza-like event. It’s very civilized. You […]

Because it is Lana del Rey’s 30th birthday (ah, youth!), it’s time for me to post a few photos of her performance at the Governors Ball music festival earlier this month. The three-day, four-stage festival takes place on New York City’s Randall’s Island, and I was there for two days with my concert-going friend Jessie. […]
