The List 2014 edition

Eric TsurumotoComment

So every year I put together a list of Must see artists, its a way for me to prioritize my concert calendar. Last year this list had me at the back at Newport for a third year, making time to see flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers and catching a last minute train to see a secret show from Arcade Fire  But this year I may be knocking off some heavy hitters. With neutral milk hotel finally reappearing from the shadows of a 15 yr hiatus and Outkast playing every festival know to man.
