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

Orion Music + More Festival Day Two Recap 6/24/12
Orion Music + More Festival- Day Two: Running later than yesterday because the alarm didn't go off it was just a mere coincidence to have drank enough fluids on Day One that a built in intestinal alarm clock was installed as a back up. That was a dodged bullet there wasn't it? That could have been so much worse. Maybe not wake ... Read More

Headliners include beloved Bay Area natives Metallica and Neil Young and Crazy Horse. Also high up on ... Read More

The Forum: Inglewood, CA 12/18/08
It was somewhere during their second song during their second night in Los Angeles (ok, Inglewood) that I realized – I have never actually seen Metallica live. Sure, this was my 5th Metallica concert, but every time I have been in the back of the arena/stadium/amphitheatre. Not this time however, as I lucked into a below market value pit ticket for the greatest heavy metal band on the planet. I hoped into my car and after two hours ... Read More
