As the summer comes to an end I think about what a fabulous concert season we had in Northeast Ohio. It makes me happy to see so many bands/artists coming to this area. We have some great concert venues including The Grog Shop, Beachland Ballroom and House of Blues that I love visiting as often as possible.

It’s so hard to choose a favorite show from this summer but I’m going to have to go with Vampire Weekend at The House of Blues. Not only was it my favorite show of the summer but it’s high on my list of all time favorite concerts. The show was incredible. I feel lucky to have had the chance to see them live. The band hadn’t played a live show since 2010 and the only other concert date they scheduled this summer was the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago.

Some other favorites of the summer were:

Florence & The Machine
Mumford & Sons
Foster The People
Our Lady Peace
The Head and The Heart
Joshua Radin
