Happy Maroon 5 Day!
Honestly, I haven’t been keeping up with Maroon 5 much these days. Although they are still my guilty pleasure (14 years after first falling in love with Songs About Jane), I just don’t have the same fan girl time as I once did.
BUT, in honor of their sixth album, Red Pill Blues, being released today… I decided I would dedicate a “Flashback Friday” post to a few of the 12 shows I’ve been to in the last 14 years. In case you’re wondering… yes, I was even able to convince my mother to attend one with me in matching shirts, per her request. (The show not the shirts).
The Album:Red Pill Blues
Thoughts: TBH, my first initial thought was, “Did they get Taylor Swift and Drake to write all of the songs?” .. But I can see some of the tracks getting stuck in my head or on repeat eventually. It’s definitely a long way from Songs About Jane but I don’ hate it.
Now onto #Flashback Friday:
Venues: Corpus, Maybe (2005), Woodlands Pavilion (2011 & 2013), Galveston, TX (Carnival Cruise Launch Party-2011), Houston Toyota Center (2013 & 2015)
If you’re at all like me and like Maroon 5 you probably already snagged tickets for their upcoming 2018 tour, but in case you haven’t yet, you can try your luck here.
Bonus: Check out Adam covering Chris Cornell’s “Seasons” on Howard Stern.
“Don’t Call me Gaga, Call Me Joanne”
This Labor Day Weekend was pure magic. I got to enjoy not one but two doses of Lady Gaga up close and personal.
I always knew I liked Gaga and I knew her show would be a fkn’ blast… But after seeing her live I have nothing but love and respect for the 5 foot 2 powerhouse. A love that I now feel in my bones when I listen to her music. Only Gaga can play two sold out Fenway shows (being the first female to ever headline) then walk over to do a show with a Jazz quartet at the HOB (where tickets sold for $10).
Venues: Fenway Park, House of Blues (with Brian Newman)
Set List: Here

Finally, every concert goers dream come true… ladies & gentlemen (drumroll), this is the “my first time at Red Rocks” blog post.
The Show: Alt-J (round two)
The Openers: SOHN, Tove Lo
Setlist: Click It
Highlight: Um, ✔️ Red Rocks off the bucketlist, duh. 😉 Oh, and just Denver in general.
I really don’t know what to say other than if you have ever dreamed of attending a show at Red Rocks or have no clue what I’m talking about, make it a point to see a show out there at least once in your lifetime.
You could feel a different energy from all the bands who played, all of whom I’ve seen multiple times before.
I honestly don’t even want to cheapen the experience with cheesy lines about energy & vibes. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves (as much as iPhone photos can) 😉. Cheers!
Special shoutout to the concert gods who cleared the rain just in time for the show.
