  1. 1) Hard one. There are ones from my childhood at Red Rocks that should make the list, but I didn’t appreciate it as much as I would of as an adult. My most memorable is probably U2 at Red Rocks.

    2) Money clip and credit cards.

    3) Summertime boredom forcing me to go do something, because nothing on the one screen in the house but reruns of old shows and soap operas.

    4) Dave Matthews at Joshua’s in Breckenridge. Sheryl Crow in the DJ booth at a radio station I worked at. Big Head Todd and the Monsters in Escalante Terrace Dormitory cafeteria.

    5) Yes. And I still have a cassette player to digitize them in to the nether.


  2. 1) Springsteen Devils & Dust tour 2005. Played at the Denver convention center lecture hall. Small intimate show. It was amazing.

    2) phone, keys, stethoscope, pen, surgical gloves, 20mg vial of Vasopressin, & a military emergency tourniquet. (I’m at work)

    3)Answering machines.

    4) see above #1 answer. George Winston at the Crested Butte art center. Indigo Girls at Belly Up in Aspen.

    5) I have the 6 cds that are in my car.
