Keep Beating, My Rocking Heart

Pearl Jam playing at Rogers Arena, in Vancouver, BC.

It took 20 years or so, but last week I finally got to see Pearl Jam in concert for the first time. The experience was so beautiful and powerful that it has stayed with me for many days.  It also made me realize one thing: even though I love many, many things, and I enjoy and love many types of music, I remain a rocker at heart.

Phillip Phillips & John Mayer at The Gorge: A Match Made in Concert Heaven

The Gorge Amphitheatre.

If you are a music fan living in the Pacific Northwest, chances are you have seen a show at the Gorge Amphitheatre. And if you are lucky enough to have experienced a show at the Gorge, you know the trip there is absolutely worth it. Indeed, this venue is such a special and beautiful place, people travel hundred of miles just to go see shows there.  The Gorge has also become a sort of gathering place for Dave Matthews Band fans for their annual labour day weekend shows and it’s also where the Sasquatch Festival is held every Memorial Day weekend.
