A Life Well Wasted

Purchase Details
Desaparecidos at The Regency Ballroom – Wednesday, August 29, 2012 at 8:00 PM

$35 is pricey for a band that only released one album, but… well…


My biggest takeaway, reflecting on MCA's death, is that I should never, ever take a band for granted. No matter how big and popular they get, no matter how lame and mainstream they sometimes seem, one day they will cease to exist, and I will never be able to see them again

If I could share one thing that Yauch's passing made me feel, it's that you need to recognize who the truly important artists in your life are, and you need to see them perform live as often as you can. Even if they're old, don't look or sound the same and are playing a huge venue with bad sound. Just bite down and go. You'll appreciate it later.

I should splurge on tickets to Thrice's local farewell show too.

I saw the Beastie Boys live thrice, and drew "High Plains Drifter" (33 known performances), "Alive" (8 known performances), and "In a World Gone Mad" (3 known performances).

"Car Thief" (11 known performances) – lucky Mister Falcons.
