September is a great time of year. Fall is my favorite. It also coincides with the iTunes festival live from London Roundhouse. In previous years I have enjoyed performances from Jake Bugg, Sigur Ros, and Arctic Monkeys. Even if you would never be found dead at a Lady Gaga concert you can log into iTunes put the headphones on, dim the lights, and nobody knows…but you’re a little monster. Also artists like Paolo Nutini who must have inadvertently forgot to add a tour date in my town, now I can see him live.
They also do a great job of pairing groups together. They have Blondie with Chrissie Hynde or Ryan Adams with First Aid Kit. This year has already started and here are a few highlights as I see them. Hope to see you at the show.
