In late 2008, Reverend Justito started a Myspace page with the idea that fans could share their concert tales with other fans. Out of the gate the page was an instant success to the point that Myspace could no longer support the beast. A few months later Justito was in a garage in Santa Maria California creating this very website – Concert Confessions.
Over the past few years, this site has featured 100% fan submitted reviews from artists ranging from the timeless ballads of Leonard Cohen and Dolly Parton to the hard hitting heavy metal of Cannibal Corpse and The Black Dahlia Murder. We have covered some of the nations top festivals from Outside Lands and Coachella to Voodoo and Sasquatch. From local artists to legends on the second leg of a three year reunion tour, no review is turned down.
With fan submitted reviews, you get the intimate details often left out by mainstream publications. Perhaps we may have a typo here or there and sure a digital camera won’t take photos as crisp as a professional photographer with a photo pass. Yet we are pretty darn sure that the reporter from your local paper has not felt bruises from being up against the guard rail and no doubt they missed the moment where the band came out for a surprise second encore because they were already back at the office trying to describe the experience in 500 words or less.
Concert Confessions is more than just a website, it is a family. With members spread across the United States and beyond we are more than just words and photos on a website. Members have traveled clear across the county to take in shows with individuals they would have never met if not for this site. Seasoned Concert Confession vets take great pride in helping new members reach their full potential as concert reviewers. We may not all agree on who the greatest artist of all time is, but we do agree that nothing feels as good as music does when it hits your soul.
We invite you to join our family today. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
