Oh, I forgot the Saw Doctors (at Milwaukee Irish Fest)! Will have to amend list.

And I would've loved to see The Waterboys.

*waves* Hope you're doing well.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 3rd, 2006 07:53 pm (UTC)
I saw them at a small venue in Galway. It was rowdy and fun (Saw Doctors, I mean).

I didn't know anything about the Waterboys at the time I saw them. They were one of the opening acts for Simple Minds at their Croke Park concert. Since that time I've come to like them, but at the time I was like "Who???"

*waves back cheerfully* I'm doing fairly well. Still in a lot of pain, but at least my heart's beating like it should be and I'm not passing out anymore. *eyes silver lining* Hope you're doing well too.

You want to see my babies! Yay!
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 4th, 2006 12:03 pm (UTC)
I do! Now I know what I've been missing. ;D Next time they tour I intend to show up on your doorstep to attend the NYC show(s) with you. *grin*
Megsthemegs on August 4th, 2006 12:57 pm (UTC)
We can do that. Just be prepared for the full GA line experience, a little warmer this time.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 4th, 2006 01:56 pm (UTC)
YAY! No NV Burrito, unless one of us makes a run to Burritoville. :D
Megsthemegs on August 4th, 2006 02:32 pm (UTC)
hee! I love that place. I don't know where the Killers will play, if it's MSG or Hammerstein, or possibly Central Park again. but it'll be good.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 4th, 2006 02:50 pm (UTC)
Yes, wherever it is it will be good. :D

oooh, echo and the bunnymen? *drool*
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on August 4th, 2006 12:04 pm (UTC)
Heee. I didn't know all that much about them at the time I went to see them -- it was a spur of the moment decision to attend the concert, made on the day of the show. I was up in the back of beyond, second balcony, next to last row, but I had a blast and discovered I really liked their music.
