Plinky Question of the Day


The Plinky Question of the Day is a weekly feature I added to the blog to get to know you guys better and vice versa.  Sometimes the questions will deal with books or reading but, most of the time they won’t.  Because, let’s face it, there’s more to us than what we read.


Describe the best live musical performance you’ve ever attended.


This is a tough one only because I hate picking favorites.  So I’m going with my top three.



These guys put on an amazing show.  The stage setup was one of the most elaborate I’ve ever seen.  It definitely added to the overall vibe of the show.  Thom Yorke is amazing.  If you ever have a chance to see them live go do it.  You won’t be disappointed.  My sister’s ex said it best when he said it was almost like a religious experience.  Word.



I’ve been a fan of Gwen Stefani and No Doubt since I was 15 years old.  They’re one of the few bands who are on my auto buy list.  When Gwen took off to do her own thing I thought I’d never get a chance to see a No Doubt concert.  Then the news came that they had gotten back together AND that they were going on tour.  My 15 year old self damn near ran over anyone in her path to buy tickets for the show and what an amazing show it was.  I took my sister and we totally jammed out to every single one of the songs.  Mrs. Stefani tore up that stage!  It’s definitely one concert I will NEVER forget.  The only thing that kind of sort of took away from the overall experience is that I missed their openers, Paramore.  I’m still pretty peeved about it.  *sigh*  Friggin’ traffic!  Not to mention that I lost the pictures I took at the concert when I changed my phone.  Ugh!


JACK JOHNSONJack Johnson 2

What a fun, uplifting and mellow night!  I fell in love with Jack Johnson’s music the first moment I heard it.  It’s positive, it’s melodic and damn it if it doesn’t put you in a good mood every time you hear it.  One of the things I loved about this show was all the parents who brought their kids along.  I don’t think there’s a lot of shows that are kid friendly but, this is definitely one of them.  Jack’s an amazing musician but, he’s also big on giving back.  Dude’s a modern day Captain Planet.


What are some the best live musical performances you’ve ever had a chance to check out?


  1. I so No Doubt years ago (back in her pink hair days) and it was fantastic.

  2. Ack! I loved her pink hair days!

  3. I'm so jealous that you would have been able to watch No Doubt!

    This is a very hard concert I've ever been to...George Strait and Reba McEntire on tour together was just amazing! Two huge artists in one awesome concert was just breath taking! :-D
