A Thousand Miles Behind

I’m headed to see David Gray tonight, who I’ve seen many times. It made me curious. Who are some artists you’ve seen frequently? Also, what was your first concert?

My first concert was to see Partners in Kryme perform Turtle Power from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.  Adam Ant also performed and I learned about lip syncing.

Montreal: Show Me the Place

I’ll mostly be there for work, but I’ll have some meals free and a little time to explore.  What should I not miss?  Is there anything tourists do that I don’t need to see?
