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

Queens of the Stone Age was in town for their Live On Letterman performance that aired via the internets at 9PM EST, so only fitting that they'd stick around and play “My God is The Sun” off their latest, incredibly sexy record '...Like Clockwork'. Take a listen to that album here, and then go buy it. For the performance that aired on broadcast television, just scroll down below because we have video courtesy of, our buddy The Audio Perv. Check it out ... Read More

Big names include Nine Inch Nails, Queens Of The Stone Age and Beyonce`.

Alight folks here we go. Lollapalooza 2013 has revealed it's full lineup. We debated sharing the headliners with you when they broke a few weeks ago ( Phoenix, The Postal Service, The National, the Killers, Mumford & Sons and Vampire Weekend). We decided to wait for the full lineup, and it turned out alright.
In the artists we care about after giving the lineup a quick skim category we list these folks:
Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails ,The Cure, Ghost(not calling them B.C.!),Kendrick Lamar, ... Read More

As 2011 reaches a close, we take a look back at the year in concerts. In volume, I probably attend the least amount of total shows per year if you pool all of the contributors here at Concert Confessions. But never the less, by years end I will have reached 23 concerts, eclipsing last years total of 20. My only personal goal is to always get out to more shows then the year before. We did that in 2011, and here's hoping ... Read More

Ok folks, I first must once again apologize for the severe tardiness of my reviews. I have had a very eventful summer to say the least and my lazy ass never got motivated enough to post my reviews. I did however post 95% of all the videos I recorded this summer on Youtube.com. Now it is time to kick back and enjoy the hellride of a summer that I ... Read More

Spent much of this weekend just staring around in amazement, repeating the phrase “Holy freaking God” over and over again. This is a special 53rd installment of the Jay Porks Never Ending Concert Series as it took us to Newark Airport, where I hopped on a plane and came out to Washington State(Home of the Cougs) to meet up with some of the Northwest chapter of Concert Confessions: thenaturalstoner ,Mr Sparkly (Who Are Hosting Me) and possibly another 3 as at last check ...

Queens of the Stone Age 04/12/11
Wiltern - Los Angeles, CA

When Queens of the Stone Age announced they were hitting the road in support of the re-release of their self-titled debut album, I knew I couldn’t miss it. After all, I am one of the few who can say they saw Joshua Homme and friends when they originally supported the debut album over a decade ago. It was a hot August night in San Francisco, and the band “opened” for ... Read More

On the night of October 1st, 2005, I found myself inside the Hollywood Bowl enjoying one of my favorite bands - Queens of the Stone Age as the main support to Nine Inch Nails. As smoke from the rampant forest fires across the Southland choked the autumn air, I witnessed a quick and clever set from Queens. It was also ... Read More

This weekend I am heading out to the 2010 KROQ Weenie Roast. In honor of seeing wonderful artists including Against Me!, Stone Temple Pilots, Deftones and that cute ginger kid who just flashed her boobies on Twitter, I figured I would share some photos from my first trip to the KROQ Weenie Roast back in 2007 (long before I was regularly writing concert reviews). I hope you enjoy - and of course you can expect full coverage of the 2010 event here ... Read More

Words by Reverend Justito
Editors Note: With LA on fire once again, and tonight being the "last" time I see Nine Inch Nails, I figured it was appropriate to share with you the very first concert review I wrote (for my myspace blog). In going back and reading this today, I was not only reminded of a wonderful night I had, but am rather amazed to see how far my writing has ... Read More
