The venue was set up to house sixty-five hundred people and I would say that, sadly, it was only about two thirds full by the time old Snoop took the stage ... Read More

Neil Young and Crazy Horse Key Arena, Seattle WA - 11/10/12 Videos by Phishbeard  Concert Confessions contributor Phishbeard hits tons of shows. Actually, tons is probably an understatement.

Watch LeBron James Perform With LMFAO

Watch LeBron James Perform With LMFAO For the past few weeks behind the scenes at Concert Confessions, both Phishbeard and thenaturalstoner have been gushing over LeBron James like 13 year old girl swoons for Justin Bieber. While we can’t knock them for wanting their former team the Seattle Supersonics to be crushed in the finals, these guys believe their king can do no wrong. Heck one look at thenaturalstoner’s Avett Brothers post last night should prove that. Oh and knowing how much Phishbeard ... Read More

Homeboy spent Memorial Day weekend at the Gorge enjoying the 2012 Sasquatch Music Festival. He took no less than 1200 photos. Here are the best ones. We hope you enjoy.

Trey Anastasio w/ the Los  Angeles Philharmonic 03/10/12 Walt Disney Concert Hall - Los Angeles, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito Back in 2010 I wrote an open letter to Phish and the Los Angeles Philharmonic begging them to team up for a performance at the Hollywood Bowl. While we finally got to see Phish at the Bowl last summer, it was your typical two set balls to the wall affair with no sign of the Phil in sight. Thankfully my wish somewhat came true in ...

The Top 10 Jay Porks Experiences of 2011

Categories: Reviews

As 2011 reaches a close, we take a look back at the year in concerts. In volume, I probably attend the least amount of total shows per year if you pool all of the contributors here at Concert Confessions. But never the less, by years end I will have reached 23 concerts, eclipsing last years total of 20. My only personal goal is to always get out to more shows then the year before. We did that in 2011, and here's hoping ... Read More

Categories: Reviews

thenaturalstoner's Top 10 Shows of 2011 2011 was undoubtedly my finest concert going year on record (out of 31!).  I saw over 80 bands, did several awesome road trips, brought in visitors from around the country to come to the Gorge Amphitheatre, and almost all my shows were at least ‘decent’.  Obviously some rise to the top, and some fall to the bottom... so here is my list of best concerts of 2011. 10) Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings 05/30/11 - The Gorge ...

Phans from all over America congregated for one of the most magical weekends in recent Phishtory.

Phish 08/08/11 Hollywood Bowl - Los Angeles, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito I witnessed my first performance at the Hollywood Bowl in 2003. Sitting there under the stars, I knew that the historic venue would be the perfect place to see Phish work their magic. I’ve even discussed for this very website how great it would be to see Phish perform at the venue with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Having spent two days at the Gorge with the boys, I pulled into the venue with ... Read More

Phish 08/06/11 Gorge Amphitheatre, George, WA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito Note: As with part one, this was written on the trek from Spokane to Los Angeles. Pardon any and all typos.  For night two we decided to start the first set up on the lawn so I could see the sun set/get a different appreciation for the venue. Phish came out just as the sun snuck behind the ridge and played the worst set of the weekend much to my delight. It's not that the music ... Read More

Sasquatch! Festival – Monday 5/30/11 – The Gorge Amphitheatre Review, pictures and video from thenaturalstoner   Monday morning was a little bittersweet.  Of course we started with a morning drink, but Mr. Sparkly was already gone for a couple days and Phishbeard was unable to stay for one last blow out, so I rocked Monday at the Gorge solo.  I had company from our neighbors of course, and the day turned out to be a total success.  I got to meet an artist I really ...

Sasquatch!
