If at any point you were under the impression that this festival fever is a game, then you were sadly mistaken. Next up on a big week for festival announcements is the Hangout Music Festival, which takes place on a beach in Alabama. The headliners are solid and include The Black Keys coming out of hiding alongside The Killers and Outkast.
Other notables include Queens Of The Stone Age (who should be headlining ALL these festivals with their stellar work in 2013),Modest Mouse, The ... 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

Firefly Music Festival To Be Held In Delaware
Delaware, welcome to the world of States that have sweet Music Festivals.
The news broke last night, that the three day ’Firefly Music Festival’, will be headlined by The Killers, The Black Keys and Jack White . Solid, right? I mean, sure The Killers aren’t in the stratosphere of musical relevance circa 2012 as the The Black Keys and Jack White are; but hey, they could have went with the Beach ... 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 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, ...

(First published by MTVnews in 2008)
I am looking forward to the George W. Bush tax rebate check that I still have not received. $600 bucks to inject back into the economy. Being a good American, I have decided to take that chunk of change and spend it. I live within walking distance from the Hollywood Bowl, and I really wanted that money to go back into my community. Tonight I was rewarded for the first donation I made with a chance to ... Read More
