Concerts: assorted, annotated, alphabetized

 ticket stub diary a gift from Mikala, Backstage Rider (its in the archive somewhere, i assume)

Notes (yes i overthink things):

  • resisted urge to list how many times (or at least “once, a few, several, loads), and places, approx years and what not
  • also have satchels full of tickets stubs one of these days will surface (update: added a few handy ones)
  • considered making multiple list vaguely by genre and this is exercise in futility
  • filed alphabetized by first name (decided after consideration about how to file artist+band, i.e.: “Jerry Garcia Band” or “Booker T and MGs” – just too confusing otherwise
  • so many more especially when considering festivals like SxSW, Rifflandia and WOMAD in which saw untold dozens of bands
  • of course hundreds more bands in bars and un-ticketed shows
  • and the 6 band bills in early 80s Vancouver punk rock (some are listed)
  • and sneaking into shows at Park West in Utah
  • added the bands from the Tracks on Tracks trip
  • this is just “something” not everything, tried to stick to ticketed show and just what came up in a single brainstorm… that is until i add more :)
