Buzz In: What's the Best Concert You've Seen This Summer?

Buzz In: What's the Best Concert You've Seen This Summer?

Summer is a great time to hear live music — outdoors, if possible. Here in San Francisco, I'm eagerly looking forward to the inaugural Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival at the end of the month, where Iron and Wine, M. Ward, and Radiohead, among others, will be taking the stage.

I know some of you headed to Lollapalooza, and there have been tons of other major festivals already, from the Pitchfork Music Festival to Bonnaroo to All Points West. Tons of great artists play local clubs and big stadiums on solo tours, too: Ticket seller StubHub released its list of top-selling concert tours recently, and Billy Joel, Dave Matthews Band, and Kenny Chesney were among the big winners. So I'm wondering: If you've been seeing music this Summer, what's the best concert you've seen?

John Mayer was at his absolute BEST this summer. I would say it was quite an "orgasmic" experience, music-wise, in that John Mayer is an amazing, breathtaking, genius of a guitar player! And just as someone commented earlier....DMB is always a summer fav! :)

bluesarahlou - I'm glad that someone knows what I'm talking about. Yeah, BFD had a crappy lineup this year, there's a reason why it only cost $10 :oy: I was so bummed.

Californiagirl...I saw the lineup for BFD this year and I was COMPLETELY disappointed. There really wasn't anything there I was interested in.

I rarely go to concerts anymore but I'm seeing My Morning Jacket in September and possibly Calexico, too.

Ask me in two weeks. I'm seeing Nine Inch Nails and they never fail to deliver. :) That's my high light this year..not a lot of bands I want to see lately.

It's between the Crystal Castles and the Twilight Sad (these guys keep getting better and better live, and they were already fecking amazing the first time I saw them. I'm so impressed!) This being said, I'm going to the Hydro Connect Festival next weekend - will keep you updated. :P

I didn't go to any concerts this summer :cry: A lot of concerts were too expensive for me (like Kanye West) and the outdoor concerts that I usually liked to go to had crappy bands this year (like Live 105's BFD).

Dave Matthews Band on Tuesday, which is the day the sax player passed away. They did a whole tribute to him, played his favorite songs, and it was lovely.
