Before I Die, I’d Like To See


Beastie Boy tickets went on sale the other day, and I let Josh know because I know he digs their rhythms. John Mayer went on sale awhile ago, but were sold out 24 hours after going on sale, but there were tixx still on sale for his Nevada concert and I considered taking the drive just for a lame excuse to see some Nevada landscape. Didn’t get tickets to either.
Then I started considering, what things are really significant for me to see before I die? I mean, if I could decide and be pro-active to make it happen within this short lifespan. I already got my Sedaris tickets.
I’d love to see a U2 concert, I’m not a hard core fan (but I know most of their music), but I’d love to just see them live. See how they put on a show, see Bono in leather, and whatnot. Maybe give a contribution to Bono’s AIDS crusade. That’d be neat.
I saw a crappy rendition of The Fantasticks over our anniversary and so loved the music and saw so much potential in the musical. I’d like to see it done well. I’d also like to see Avenue Q done by good actors.
My friend Mark told me about this cool play he saw off Broadway. The audience has to stand the whole time and actors leap out of the ceiling on bungee cords and grab audience members and pull them up into the ceiling. That’d be cool to see a play where you have to sign a release agreement before going in. I can’t remember the name of it, but I totally want to see it.
Other bands I’d like to see include: DAVE MATTHEWS, Beck, The Beta Band, The Darkness, Norah Jones, Yo-Yo Ma, Eric Clapton, Billy Joel, Spice Girls (reunited), Natallie Merchant, Linkin Park, Barenaked Ladies, Harry Connick Jr., Caedmon’s Call, Sixpence None the Richer (reunited), and Squirrel Nut Zippers. I know, it’s a strange mix, but I’d like to see them all for different reasons. Cool.
