TicketMOMster’s Top 5 Favourite Shows of 2016 – #3
For those of you who haven’t followed this blog from the beginning (we’re now into the second year), you may be wondering what credentials I have to create such a list. Well, I go to a lot of shows. Do you want to know how many bands I reviewed this year alone? (Drum roll please)
As of today’s date…ONE HUNDRED AND TWO bands and/or shows!
Did your jaw hit the floor? Because mine did. Seriously? I reviewed that many bands IN ONE YEAR? Jeez, I was busy. I think that’s double from last year!
Anyway, I’m on a musical journey and I’m learning stuff by seeing tons of things and now I know more stuff about things than last year, so here’s a list of stuff and things I liked from this year (those are my credentials in a nutshell – heh):
3. Carly Dow @ Fort Whyte
Here’s an example of going out of your comfort zone, and discovering gold. I’m not an outdoorsy/woodsy/winter person, but my best friend urged me to come with her to this performance. I agreed to go, but to be honest with you, it stressed me out a bit. I had no idea what was going to happen.
It turned into one of the most magical nights of my whole year. We traveled to an urban forest, sat in a candle-lit research station, and listened to Carly’s honest and beautiful songs. She was witty and real, and everything felt so warm and wonderful. THEN…we roasted marshmallows in the snow. Seriously.
It was a fantastic night that produced one of the funniest reviews I’ve ever written and I’ll always remember this show fondly.
The countdown continues every week until New Year’s Eve, when I’ll reveal my favourite show of 2016!
