2009 Summer Concert Review

It’s labor day, so officially summer is over. Although I still have a few concerts to attend this month, I’ll do a quick wrap up of the summer concerts I attended.

Incubus at Cricket Wireless Amphitheater

I’ll admit, they aren’t the most popular band on the scene right now. But I’ll be damned if they didn’t put on one of the best concerts I’ve ever been too. Rarely do you find a band that can outperform the sounds on their CDs live. Incubus delivers just that and more. If you ever have the chance to see them live, do not hesitate! Just listen to the videos below!

DJ Fergie Ferg

Not once, but twice I got to see DJ Fergie Ferg in action this summer. Taking over house parties and local bars, Ferg provides the beats with style. Rumor has it he’s working on something big to release later this year!

The Airborne Toxic Event

This is the band I was most excited to see this summer. They’re songs had just hit the scene and were getting radio play and I am a huge fan. Not only are their lyrics extemely poetic, profound, and sometimes funny, their music and sound backs up a surreal experience. Not the best band in matching their CD sound to a live performance, but it’s good enough to live up to my expectations of the band and more.

check out their best song, performed live!

That about wraps up the concerts I was able to get to this summer. I wish I could have gone to Street Scene, but I hear the knock-out performance was the Silver Sun Pickups, which I saw up close and personal live. That was the best concert I’ve ever been to.
On the docket for the rest of the year is DMB coming up, and Pitbull later this month.
