20 Magmazing Major Concert Moments of 2013

2013 was a year of crossing off a bunch of bucket list bands and songs to see live. It wasn’t the most stand out year… probably because I didn’t really attend as many major concerts this year. I missed out on a bunch of concerts in Vancouver including two I seriously wish I hadn’t missed. I wasn’t there to see Pearl Jam perform ‘Jeremy’ live in Vancouver. And I missed out on seeing Nine Inch Nails in Vancouver as well. But there were still a ton of memorable major moments I was able to capture on video So let’s get to my Top 20 Magmazing Major Concert Moments of 2013.

If you don’t want to go through the countdown one by one, below are links to all 20 posts on each video I’ve chosen. Just click the images.

Top Concert Moments of 2013: Number 13

<< NUMBER 14 NUMBER 12 >>


13. – Whitehorse at Upstairs Cabaret- Devil’s Got a Gun (January 27, 2013)

Loved this performance by Whitehorse at Upstairs Cabaret way back in January. Their use of multiple instruments and loop machines incredible considering one wrong move and the whole performance can go awry. I also love the colour captured on the video.

17. – Michael Bernard Fitzgerald at Upstairs Cabaret- Firecracker (October 12, 2013)

I would have had video of Michael Bernard Fitzgerald at Rock of The Woods on this list and ranked higher, but I messed up my audio recording so I never posted video from his set. But, this performance of Firecracker at Upstairs Cabaret in Victoria, BC a few months later was just as great.

18. – Fly Moon Royalty at Rock of The Woods 2013- Step Hard & Piece of Me (July 27, 2013)

Fly Moon Royalty from Seattle were a pleasant surprise for me and many who attended the 2013 Rock of The Woods music festival near Duncan in July. Their high energy show had the festival audience moving from beginning to end. Later in the year they performed a sold out show at Victoria’s Lucky Bar.
