01-08-12 – DowntroddenInDC’s Top Three Concerts in 2011


I saw Glitch Mob a few months back at Warehouse Live here in Houston. I have to say Glitch Mob was one of my top three concerts for 2011. If I had to rank the top three concerts I went to (in Houston) last year (and I went to a few), I think I’d put them in this order:

NUMBER ONE - 01*13*2011 GirlTalk at Verizon Center

Number One – Girl Talk at Verizon Center – This was by far the best concert in Houston in 2011. I missed a few concerts in 2011 (Die Antwoord at Fitzgeralds and Electric Six also at Fitzgeralds, for example) but I also went to quite a few, and Girl Talk bests all of those concerts I went too for 2011 (original blog here.) Truly an amazing live performance! Giant beach balls, crowdsurfing, toilet paper leaf-blower gun things, lasers and trip art. It had it all!

NUMBER TWO - 07*08*11 Glitch Mob at Warehouse Live

Number Two – Glitch Mob (w/ Come Truise) at Warehouse Live – I had originally planned on skipping out on this concert. It was a long day at work and I was worn out. But I stuck it through and got loaded up on beers at Lucky’s Pub right next to Warehouse Live and later met up with a buddy from work. Com Truise opened for the Glitch Mob, which was like the most perfect line-up/opener ever. Warehouse Live reverberated with base and synth for several hours. The light show wasn’t the most incredible I had ever seen or the stage dramatics, but Glitch Mob has one thing to fall back on that many other pop bands don’t have: GOOD MUSIC. This show was incredible, and I’d probably venture to put it in my top ten concerts of all time (to date).

NUMBER THREE - 10*28*11 - Ghostland Observatory at Warehouse Live

Number Three – Ghostland Observatory at Warehouse Live – I was super pumped for Ghostland Observatory. They are based out of Austin and venture through Houston pretty often. That being said, I’d never gotten to see them live. They normally do several shows in a row and those shows almost always sell out, even when they’re stopping in several times a year. Ghostland’s biggest draw is their amazing light and laser show. I’ll admit, I get impressed really easily with pretty lights (Pretty Lights, another concert I regret not being able to make it to in 2011..) The lights and lasers were awesome and I posted pictures from the concert back in October ’11(original blog here.) The shitty part about the concert were the other concert attendees. It being Halloween weekend, I get people get crazy and they feel they need to go all Kanye West when they go out, however there were so many douchy people and so many shitty experiences in such a short amount of time it put a damper on my ability to really enjoy the concert. Nonetheless, Ghostland still makes the top three for 2011.
