It's Ming!

Concerts are all, it doesn't seem like I go to them very often but it feels like I do.
These are my general and very biased opinions about the concerts I have been to since November 1996. Yes, I almost always say that it was the best and I would go see them again. I think the only one I didn't really like was the first Smashing Pumpkins concert. Too loud = bad.
Yeah, concerts are cool.
And I know, before Powerman 5000, I neglected to write reviews for two of my concerts. What can I say? I was really tired. I'll try to get them done soon, along with the poor Depeche Mode review.

My Official Top Five Concerts as of 11/26

1. Metallica w/ Michael Kamen and the SF Symphony : simply because it was a once in a life time event.
2. Powerman 5000 : because they are so cool and I was practically in their laps for the whole show!
3. Tori Amos : the 5.5 show, simply because she played Tear in Your Hand.
4. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy : The energy! The swing dancing crowd!
5. TIE: Earth Wind and Fire / Duran Duran : Because I totally enjoyed myself even though both concerts were kind of out of my musical vein.
