Look, I'm no expert.


I'm a huge nerd who studied architecture and started my own non-profit (Epicenter) with friends. I live in the beautiful desert of Utah.

Soul Saturday. Aaron Neville is so underrated, y’all.

Thought I’d go through the list and strike-out who I’ve seen and bold the acts I’m dying to see (or see again). Upon going down the list I was disappointed. This is pretty predictable. Plus, there are some lame musicians on here (e.g. DMB?! Really?). Oh well… 50. Fiona Apple 49. Taylor Swift 48. Green Day 47. Sigur Ros 46. Tool 45. Lady Gaga 44. Janelle Monae 43. Mumford and Sons 42. Skrillex 41. Tame Impala (Twice) 40. Eric Church 39. Rush 38. Queens of the Stone Age 37. The National 36. Florence and the Machine 35. Bruno Mars 34. Foo Fighters 33. Beyonce (But I’ve only seen her with Jay Z) 32. Sleigh Bells (Four times) 31. David Byrne 30. Madonna 29. Muse (Twice) 28. Patti Smith 27. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds 26. Leonard Cohen 25. Phish 24. Dave Matthews Band 23. Pearl Jam 22. Tom Waits 21. Red Hot Chili Peppers 20. Kanye West 19. The Roots 18. Metallica 17. Nine Inch Nails 16. Alabama Shakes 15. Paul McCartney 14. The Black Keys (Too many times to count.) 13. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers 12. Wilco 11. U2 10. My Morning Jacket 09. Rage Against the Machine 08. Jack White (Twice.) 07. Radiohead (Three times!) 06. Jay Z 05. Neil Young (Twice.) 04. Arcade Fire 03. The Rolling Stones 02. Prince 01. Bruce Springsteen Thoughts on this list? Who do you think is missing? I was surprised The Flaming Lips weren’t on here. They seem like the classic “best live band” go to.

In case you need an hour of high energy music.

Big Boi

I still listen to Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty regularly, so I’m pretty stoaked for the new Big Boi album. Oh, and I’ll be seeing Big Boi live (again) next month!
