Words and Pictures by Bradley Darby (Follow @DarbySTL / LIKE DarbySTL)
105.7 The Point has done a great job over the past 21 years bringing some of the biggest names in modern rock to town to celebrate Halloween, Christmas, and their Birthday by playing shows across St. Louis. When this one was announced back in the Fall it was no question that this would sell out. The Arctic Monkeys have played at The Pageant before ... Read More

Top Five Jay Porks Experiences of 2012
The end of the year brings us empty wallets, fat stomachs and most importantly larger egos than we had the year before. It's because of these egos that people like me put together these year end "best of" lists. Although as you know, here at Concert Confessions we do things a little differently then other sites. We don't have a Top Albums list, Top Artist list, Male and Female Rookies of the year list we do ... Read More

Watch Arctic Monkeys Play Live At The 2012 Summer Olympics
So in a couple of hours I am going to go home and watch the Arctic Monkeys rock the Olympics. This is because NBC still thinks it is 1992 and tape delay is cool. It’s not. So fuck NBC enjoy Arctic Monkey’s rocking I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor and a cover of The Beatles Come Together live from the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.
Update: We ... Read More

Coachella Music and Arts Festival 04/13/12
Empire Polo Fields - Indio, CA
Words/Photos by Reverend Justito
There was a reason I have always avoided Coachella and that reason is the sun. Fact is my white ass doesn’t do so well out in the middle of the desert. So it is fitting that my first trip to Coachella felt more like my hometown of San Francisco versus the Palm Desert. Strong winds, sporadic showers and thick fog were a downer for everyone but me. But enough ... Read More

The Black Keys Announce 2012 North American Tour Dates
I suppose it makes sense that The Black Keys are touring arenas. I remember summer in San Francisco and trying to see the pride and joy of Akron Ohio which didn’t work out so well as there was an entire Polo Field on fans in front of me. So yeah, with El Camino about to drop and a rather sweet video for the first single "Lonely Boy" blowing up the interwebs we give to ... Read More

Hollywood Bowl - Los Angeles, CA
Words/Photos by Reverend Justito
A few months ago my wife called and informed me she had purchased tickets for some hipster-fest at the Hollywood Bowl. As she read the initial lineup, I was forced to swallow down my own vomit. Really, you want me to sit through TV on the Radio, Smith Westerns and someone with Panda in the name who doesn’t play for the San Francisco Giants? To make things ... Read More

Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival 08/13/11
Golden Gate Park - San Francisco, CA
Words/Photos by Reverend Justito
With plenty of bands I wanted to catch spread across Golden Gate Park for the Saturday section of the 2011 Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival, you could compare my experience to that of a pinball. I bounced from stage to stage (and porta-potty to porta-potty) all day catching bits of performances from as many artists as I could.

The All-Stars were rocking the main ... Read More
