Win an eGift Card in Today's Sephora Giveaway

Rise and shine, morning glory! ๐Ÿ™‚ Guess who has a new obsession?


Yep, Iรขโ‚ฌโ„ขve become obsessed lately with a series of videos on Vimeo called the Take Away Shows, which are basically these intimate, seemingly impromptu acoustic sets performed by musicians around the world, mostly in public venues, like while strolling down a city sidewalk, walking through a park or by an empty hotel bar.

And they’ve turned me on to a bunch of artists I’d never heard of before, like Hanni El Khatib.

It’s been a while since I’ve been to a live performance…

Well, there was that kickin’ rock cover band at the summer fair in the parking lot of the mall last year (behind the Panera Bread and the T-Mobile store), but other than that, I don’t know — maybe the San Francisco Symphony performing with Duncan Sheik in 2010. That was a fun.

I’ve always loved live music, but these days I gotta have somewhere to sit, haha! I just don’t have the stamina/wherewithal to stand for two hours and wait for a band to start playing at 11. Seriously, 11 is my bedtime now.

Okay, that sounded very Liz Lemony…

How about we pretend I didn’t say it and get on with the giveaway? ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Alix says:

    One of the most memorable concerts I ever attended was The Jacksons — about three years before “Thriller” came out and Michael became a megastar. They were sensational.

  10. Kim L says:

    Since I have been into makeup couple years now, I haven’t really attended a live concert before that I was into concerts but I guess it’s solely due to me being a parent now & not finding the time for all those old habits.
    Happy Saturday

    I am so tired!! My kids woke me up at 6:30 on a Saturday. SOOOOO cruel, lol. Winning would be so awesome!

  13. Ricki says:

    I won’t even sing in my apartment alone.

  14. G. says:

    Whoop! Whoop! What a great giveaway.
    I love Sephora, much better than Ulta, certainly for the reward program!
    I’ve been to 3 concerts in my live. As a teenager I went to see the Backstreet Boys, and the 3T’s (MJ’s nehews). And then later in my early twenties I went to see Calogero – a french/italian singer – still in love with him, but from the US it’s hard ’cause he isn’t known here at all.
    The reason why I don’t go to concerts more often, is just because I don’t like the crowd, and being pushed everywhere. This counts for mall shopping too, I rather go during the week, and avoid lunchtime.

    I saw Britney Spears last year during her FF tour, and it was amazing! It was so sad/annoying that the reviews of the concert were scathing and really inaccurate. It seems to me that the media over here was just out to get Britney and I really don’t get why.

  34. shusheshe says:

    The last live concert I attended was kinda ‘meh’, so it’ll probably be awhile before I attend another one.

  39. Bj says:

    Oh the last crazy look i sported to a concert was goin to see Jeffree Star (google if you don’t know him, he’s lady gaga but a little more insane). I wore the biggest lashes i’ve ever worn, thank you MUFE! i had some pink extensions and i contoured my face with glitter. it was fierce! Although removing it made me look like a terrible Ke$ha wannabe! There was glitter everywhere! you would have thought i drowned tinkerbell in my sink!

  40. Denise says:

    My hair’s not so bad today! Wish it was better, though.

  56. I went to see Eric Clapton a few years ago. At one point, he switched his electric guitar for an acoustic one. Someone in the audience shouted “plug it in!”. I laughed so hard, I cried! Luckily Clapton laughed too. The heckler was soon silenced when Clapton began to play “Layla” – Awesome night!!

    Today started out pretty great, I had breakfast and stated reading Karen’s blog and tweeted about it. The next thing I know was she replied to my tweet. I was so happy!

  61. Linda says:

    it has been many years since I last attended a live concert. It was at the Aragon here in Chicago and featured a variety of then popular Vietnamese artists.

  62. auroragyps says:

    I haven’t been to a concert in years, but I did see Smokin’ Joe Kubek with Bnois King a few times when I lived in Buffalo. Joe plays some amazing Blues guitar and Bnois sings. They’re amazing.

    What’s really cool is that I got to meet them, because my ex-husband’s aunt used to date Joe (they were also dating for a bit one of the times I saw him). We went to Niagara Falls & even to our apartment to hang out. He was very nice and even my cat really liked him, as shown when she brought him one of her favorite pom poms for him to throw. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Last time I went to a concert it was warned tour over summer and it was amazing. I’m have a really good hair day I did a cool new hairstyle where you do a upside down French braid at the back of your head only half way and then put the rest of your hair in a bun. I got compliments from my mom, cousin and bf on how cool it looks.

    Last performance I saw was The Wreckers.

  104. Jen says:

    The last concert I went to was 2 hours from where I live, on a Wednesday, and I went by myself. The group is from Norway, and I had been waiting for them to be coming someone close to where I live for years, and none of my friends wanted to go because it was in the middle of a work week and weren’t particularly fans. I got to meet to band and had a blast. We actually chat on occasion online ๐Ÿ˜€

  105. Ashley Miller says:

    I went to a Maroon5/Train/Gavin Degraw concert last summer and was very surprised by how amazing it was. One of the best ones I’ve been to by far!!

We left early because unbeknownst to us (hub & I), they had turned from rap to a country band? What?! Why?! They probably did “Jump Around” eventually but we weren’t going to stay indefinitely to find out!

  138. Michaela says:

    I used to go to immense rock concerts all the time, when I was a teenager. Monsters of Rock, Ozzy, AC/DC, Van Halen, Whitesnake, Aerosmith, GNR, I went to ALL the hair metal shows in Boston.

    My last rock concert was many moons ago– like, back in the 89. It was a triple header of BJ with both Billy Squier and Sid Row opening, and Sam Kinison emceed and performed comedy– a huge, amazing show that definately gave us bang for our buck.

    I’ve been to classical, jazz, folk etc. performances since then, but that was my last big-venue rock bash. Sometimes I miss the old days ๐Ÿ™‚

    I saw a band play last night that was SO FUNKY!! They had a keyboard and great guitarist and the singer reminded me of James Brown! My girls and I had a blast shaking it all around! I LOVE live music!!!

  151. supriya says:

    The last time I went to a concert was for coldplay, it was amazing, it was 3 years ago!!

  152. Genevieve says:

    I’ve never been to a live concert; well, not a memorable one, anyway. I love listening to all different types of music, but I also like to avoid loud, raucous crowds heh

  153. Stephanie Fabian says:

    I’ve been to a couple of Spanish artist concerts and one U2 concert. All were great!

  154. Gracie says:

  161. Mina says:

  162. Amber says:

    I used to work in the theatre, so I’m used to singing/dancing/acting on stage. I did it throughout most of my childhood, and still do it from time to time now. Even then, I always loved the makeup/costume time! ๐Ÿ™‚

  163. Dominique D says:

    It’s been a while since I’ve been to a concert. I think the last one was two years ago to see Muse.

  164. Michelle says:

    This morning was spent in cat lady mode: lazy in bed with my two cats cuddling next me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Happy Saturday! I have never been to a “real concert”. I wanna win, please?! ๐Ÿ™‚

  166. Liz says:

    The last concert I attended was last June when I took my husband to see Peter Gabriel for his birthday. Amazing show, but I wished he had played more of his hits. The guy looks and sounds fantastic.

    Just listened to this CD by a very talented guitarist my mom saw live not to long ago. Amazing how many notes at once and how fast this guy can play! His name is don ross if you’re interested. ๐Ÿ˜€

    The last concert I saw was Ben Harper, sophomore year of college. That was 5 years ago… I’m not much of a concert goer, really.

  185. Crist says:

    I’m having quite a dreadful hair day today but a $50 gift card to sephora can change that!!

  186. Meredith says:

    I never was one for concerts. I like live music but I hate waiting forever for the band, hate most of the other people at the concert (so rude, usually), and hate standing foreeeeeever.

  187. Dia says:

    Last August and I saw The Band Perry and Craig Morgan.

  188. Aimey says:

    Although it’s past Valentine’s Day, my church is holding various Valentine’s Day dinners for each college graduating class, in which the boys serve the girls dinner. Yum, and just how it should always be! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m excited!

  189. Lucia says:

    Oh my goodness, I don’t think I’ve ever been to a legit concert for an artist that I enjoyed O.O I think last time I went to a semi-concert was with my mom, and she wanted to see a bunch of old Chinese artists perform or something…haha

    It was about 3 months ago and it was Lindsey Buckingham. Unfraaking believable! Hard to get out these days with a toddler in tow, so it’s got to be someone we love. I think I’m going to buy tix to see Steve Martin & his bluegrass band for my husband’s bday.

  201. claire says:

    The last show I went to was my boyfriend playing a little solo acoustic set up in Auburn a couple of weeks ago:

    If you want a live music fix, Karen, he (and others) will be playing a ton at the new Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael when it opens in a couple weeks. It’s going to be a great new spot in Marin for live music, and lots of it before 11pm ๐Ÿ™‚

  222. katelyn says:

    I saw The Police live in 2007 when I graduated high school.

  223. Michelle says:

    The only time I’ve “sang” in front of an audience is when my friends and I got drunk in college and sang karaoke. I wish I could take it back.

  224. laura says:

    last concert… I’m embarrassed… it was NSYNC… like 15 years ago.. true story. Don’ t judge

  225. MJ says:

    Every time I sung in front of an audience, it always turned out bad. Mic wasn’t working…music was too loud…etc etc etc. XD I love to sing though. ๐Ÿ˜›

  226. Steph says:

    I used to go to the Vans Warped Tour when I was younger. The first time I went, Joan Jett played. I didn’t know who she was, and I was so confused over why she was in a bikini top ๐Ÿ˜›

    I’m looking at beauty blogs instead of studying lol.. I’ve only been to one concert it was a while I can’t remember who it was

  232. My last concert was Band of Horses. I like the majority of their stuff so it was great to see them live!

  233. Joanna M says:

    I have sung in front of a crowd at a school concert. At first I was a bit nervous but once the crowd start cheering me on I was so overwhelm ๐Ÿ™‚

  234. Coral says:

    It seems as I get older the concerts I loved to go to don’t come around as often as they used to. Also, I feel like an old fogey when I listen to the radio and think that the music isn’t as good as it used to be.

  235. Katherine says:

    The last concert I saw was Guster last April. It was a lot of fun, and I was glad I started at 9. ๐Ÿ™‚

  236. Elizabeth says:


  237. Kelsey says:

    When was the last time you went to a concert (and who performed)?
    About 9 years ago, I went to a Goo Goo Dolls concert in college with a few girlfriends.

    Have you ever worn a costume or crazy makeup to a concert?
    Nope, just normal clothes.

    Have you ever sung in front of an audience before?
    Sort of. I did karaoke once in college. I sang “Thank You” by Dido and I was so petrified that my voice kept wobbling. When I finished the DJ said, “Not bad for a first timer!” I couldn’t tell if he meant that insultingly or genuinely.

    Are you having a good hair day today?
    It’s just twisted up into a messy knot with an elastic band, so I guess so?

    Whom would you like to see perform live?
    Gogol Bordello!

  253. Kristi says:

    Like Erin, I also got my hair cut today – so, yep great hair day!! I’m with you – don’t have the stamina for live concerts unless I can sit to enjoy them. We have a friend who plays in a jump blues/swing band locally. We get out to see them every few months. Benefit of playing smaller, local venues = places for people to sit!!

  262. Alexis says:

    The last time that I went to a concert was actually in October of 2011 in Las Vegas Neveda!! I am from Ohio and my best friend from Toronto, Canada. We had one day free before the festival started (it was a two day thing, the 48 Hours Festival) and we walked around Vegas, gambled a bit and went sight seeing and then the day of the concert we actually met two people who knew the band we were most excited to see and we got to go to the after party at the Palms hotel. It was literally the best day of my life! Then the second day of the festival we ended up going later in the day because we didn’t care about too much of the bands and we met The Situation from Jersey Shore! It was literally one of the craziest weekends of my life and I had so much fun! It was also the last time I saw my best friend and I cant wait to go to another concert with her again!

  263. Missy M says:

  272. Becca says:

    The last one I went to was The Smiths. It was at an outdoor venue with plenty of elbow room-and the only other concert I’ve ever been to was at the same place because I have a real fear/dislike of having a lot of sweating strangers crowded around me and touching me.

  273. Molly SC says:

    I really need some lipstick today. It’s gonna make me smile. ๐Ÿ™‚

  274. Elizabeth W. says:

    Ive recently started making my own eyeshadows and have been getting very daring when going out on the town. I recently tried a dark purple and blue smokey eye then covered it with glitter and fake lashes. I love how makeup can make you feel! Its the perfect look if going to a concert too. Its fun to get all glammed up with your girlfriends!

  302. Bridget says:

    Last concert me and my husband went to was Eddie Veddar…AHHHHH-MAZING! love his gruffy voice ๐Ÿ˜‰

  303. Amanda says:

  304. Jenn says:

    The last concert I went to was in SF when I lived in CA last year! I went to see Greg Laswell and Lenka. I would LOVE to see Florence and the Machine someday.

    it was raining cats and dogs here today and a little cold. my hair ended up looking frizzy which never happens. i went to Sephora (the Mother Ship) and bought some Dry Recovery from Ojon, which seems to help my ends. Thanks for the contest!!!!!!

    • Melessa says:

      the only hair mask ive used where my bf [the next day] noticed a difference and said how soft my hair was (didnt tell him i used anything). not a fan of the smell though. so i washed it out like 10 times, but that just shows how awesome it is. all that washing out and and still a noticeable difference.
      M&B readers try this stuff!! and if you like the smell get the whole set! a little pricey, youll get your dollars worth though.

  308. Libby says:

    Some of my friends have a band. They made one of their bigger local shows a mustache party, so I used a mustache on a stick. All our friends had mustaches, real and fake, so the pictures turned out pretty awesome!

    • Melessa says:

      i loveee that show!!! i sure hope it comes back! they say hand written letters [sent to nbc] are the best thing to help save a show. critics rave, but its just not getting the viewership for some reason. but 2 1/2 men is one of the most popular shows? ughh. people are so stupid sometimes.

  314. Lauren says:

    Glory glory man united!!

  315. CJ says:

    Your blog is awesome =)

  316. mn says:

    I think the last concert I went to was Madonna. I thought it was very diva of her to insist on turning up the heat in the venue (it was a summer concert) but she is amazing so it was worth it.

  317. anszara says:

    What do you think is the longest time it’s OK to not wash your hair? I’ve gone up to 4 days, but by then it looks super super super gross (but I’m just WAY too busy to have time to wait for my hair to dry before sleeping, so I just don’t wash my hair that often). The most I can go with my hair looking good the entire day is 2. On Day 3, it starts out looking fine, but by the time I get back home, it looks like a grease-ball.

  318. Lesleyk says:

    Old 97’s in Houston at the House of Blues! It was a belated birthday present from my boyfriend and it was awesome, despite my having to stand for five hours in high-heeled boots on a freshly torn calf.

  319. Sarah says:

    What happened? I used to go to concerts all the time in high school. Now the idea of standing for hours and random people touching me sounds like torture!

  320. Crittle says:

    Hmmm…there’s no food here, and hasn’t been for several days. Groceries might be a good idea.

  321. Wow my last concert. hmmm I think it was a Busta Rhymes concert.


  322. Theresa says:

    Hi Karen! So, I like your topic for today’s contest because it reminds me of a time when I did used to sing in front of audiences- a lot! I was/am/forever will be part of a girl’s singing group who did cover songs (mostly Destiny’s Child!). Sigh, it was such a fun part of my life. Thanks for bringing me back! As for future concerts… I just bought my tix for Madonna at HP Pavillion in San Jose in October! Are you going?!

  323. Christina says:

    Speaking of good hair days, as a matter of fact I am! I used a tiny bit of olive oil on my hair because this morning I had to rush out the door to get someone lovely to work. When I came back I realized my hair was already starting to frizz…so olive oil to the rescue!

  468. Last time I went to a concert was at Coachella. I fainted from the heat and was thrown over the crowd fencing to safety by my concerned and very clearly superhumanly strong sister, who hitched up her skirt to make it over the fence and showed the jumbotron her polka dot knickers.

    Oh and the gorgeous Brandon Flowers had just appeared onstage at that moment to witness this hilarity going on below him. I would have died. Had I not been unconcious.

    I want to go again this year, but really don’t know how I could ever top that:)
