Who's NOT sick of talking about this “Sound City” Documentary directed by legendary drummer and mediocre front man Dave Grohl? Shit you know we're not! Look at that on stage. It's John Fogerty, it's Pat Smear, it's Dave Grohl. Is that Taylor Hawkins back there on drums? Oh my god how are you not totally wet to for the video of them jamming out on Credence Clearwater's classic “Fortunate Son”? If you're not excited, you're not human. Check out the video below. ...

Pearl Jam And The Foo Fighters Headline YET Another Festival
So, in a week where "Bands Jay Porks Hates" is the Lunchtime Jam of the Day theme it's just fitting that a festival with this line up would be announced.
There are so many things I'd rather be doing right now then reporting on yet another festival headlined by Pearl Jam and The Foo Fighters. Cutting myself, putting my mouth on the exhaust of a parked car and voting Republican top the list, but you know ... Read More

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.

Sasquatch! Festival – Friday 5/27/11 – The Gorge Amphitheatre
Review, pictures and video from thenaturalstoner and Phishbeard
Since we have 4 days worth of Sasquatch! content to post, I thought it would be best to put each days items up on ConcertConfessions.com individually. Friday was the opening night of the Festival, and it was a super rocking good time. There were less bands on Friday, and we were testing out our camera access limits, so the Friday content isn’t as voluminous as the rest ... Read More

Sasquatch! Festival 2011 Preview
It’s hard to believe that out of over 100 bands performing at this years Sasquatch! Music Festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre, I have only seen two. I go to a lot of concerts, and like a lot of these bands, so it’s really freaking odd to me that I have only seen the Old 97’s (at an old Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, approx. 10 years ago) and Sharon Jones, although I didn’t see her with the Dap-Kings, ...
