I go to a lot of concerts, and generally bring a pocketable digital camera now (since the DSLR is almost never allowed).
Le Carnaval du Freaks - Sideshow Freakshow (Spider House): January 18th, 2013
Featuring A Corpse Vanishes, Murderama, Hotrod Hillbillies, and Black Irish Texas. Plus fire by Guardian, Sage, and Kianna. Also performances from Big Top Piercing Suspension & Sideshow and Katzen Ink.
Rush (AT&T Center): November 30th, 2012
Wayne and I got our presale tickets seven months before the show, and they were well worth it! Our seats were on the very first row above the floor. So it was like being on the floor, except better because we could actually see over everybody. Security tried to prevent photography for awhile, but gave up by intermission.
