Concert List

Originally I had this list living on Last.fm and wanted to bring it over to the blog. I saw someone else create this list and I thought it would good to do for myself. For historical reasons, of course. 🙂

Here is the up to date list of bands and artists I’ve seen perform live. Most links go off to Last.fm artist pages but will point them over to Last.fm event pages as appropriate.

Ani DiFranco a few times in Worcester/Sommerville, MA around 1993-1995 time
Tori Amos, several times during the first 3 albums in and around Boston: I was too young to see her in a bar in New Haven, CT during her first album but got to meet her and she let me in to see her later on in Harvard (see the Past the Mission EP) after I gave her a “Neil says Hi!” teeshirt, which she misread as “Nell says Hi!”
