I love seeing bands at radically different venues back-to-back.

Great show, very different feel.

I'm so tired. But it's a happy tired.


  1. I'm generally not a chandelier-mofo, but I really dig that pic.

  2. Those are even better seats!

  3. Ooh fun! And I won't even say how many songs I know from those setlists. :-/

  4. Two concerts? You guys are hard core!!

  5. I really loved The Cure in HS. Perhaps it's time for a revisit.

  6. I was just talking to the hubs last night about possible concerts in SD and they're all SO old school this summer! The Cure, Journey, Billy Idol, George if only Depeche Mode made an appearance...

  7. can't be the bowl. even if the shrine is pretty.

  8. i'd compare this to my upcoming weekend of back-to-back jonas brothers shows, but it's just not the same.

  9. Wow, two nights in a row! Impressive, my dear. I love the Shrine.

  10. Wow. I would be happy exhausted if I were you. ;)

  11. I'm so jealous that you got to see them twice! I love Robert Smith, even if I once confused a poster of him with Edward Scissorhands.

    And did you take notes during the concerts or find a playlist online or what? You're a hardcore fan, fo' sho!

  12. I'm so jealousE!!!! I heart the Cure, as you know... The sad thing was I had tickets to this show but they were in the husband's hands, so no Cure for me. That's why it took me so long to comment, since you know normally I would be first in love to share the Cure love. :)
