    Beautiful Trauma Tour second round for me tomorrow Watching it from the seat area this time around, though. I'll just arrive about an hour before she comes on stage. The opening acts aren't that great this time around.

    Among the notable shows:

    Lizzo, I Love You Too Tour: Amazing show, just this past Thursday! If you can catch her show, do it; she has quite an infectious energy and her voice was spectacular. She often took a few moments to look into the capacity crowd with awe as though trying to look at each individual face to confirm that she did indeed sell this thing out. "Y'all got me shook!," she exclaimed. Same, Lizzo, same.

    Tuxedo, 2nd Time Around Tour: Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One's funk-pop outfit is a delightful experience live. Their style is always dazzling, the band is tight and Hawthorne's got suave charisma and on-point vocals. I had a moment with their backing singer, LA-based disco-soul siren Gavin Turek---whose presence was a pleasant surprise, as I am fan from her work with TOKiMONSTA---during her and Hawthorne's cover of "I Want to Thank You" (she pointed right at me and smiled, I pointed back and smiled) was a special highlight for me, and set me up nicely to check out Turek herself on her own tour a few months later.

    Gavin Turek, Good Look for You Tour: She was dynomite! With strong live vocals, amazing dance moves, catchy pop-disco tunes, and a sleek, flashy style Turek is positively divalicious. Post-show, she is as sweet as can be. She'll stick around the merch table, take pictures, sign autographs and give hugs (Happy to report receiving the first hug of the night!) And the only thing better than a diva is one who gives good hugs.

    TOKiMONSTA, The Lune Rouge Experience: Perhaps the best electronic show I've been to as yet! She split her set in two, with the first half was more chill and showcased her Lune Rouge album, spiked with a few older faves like "Darkest (Dim)" and "Gamble". Act 2 was a nonstop rush of house, future beats, trap and other blood-bumping styles---I've never dance harder! Through it all, she smiled, she danced, she covered her face bashfully before dropping the dirrrrtiest of dirty bass drops. I emerged from that show soaking wet, baptized in TOKiMONSTA's good vibes; a rollicking, life-affirming show!

    Disclosure, Caracal Tour: Very good show, mesmeric lighting effects, kinetic dance beats, solid live vocals from Howard Lawrence. The only thing that would have put it over the top would have been a guest spot from Jillian Hervey on "Hourglass" but it's all good. Brendan Reilly's "Moving Mountains" was absolutely spine-tingling

    Madonna, Rebel Heart Tour: Wasn't gonna go, I was so over her. But it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a legend and one who had previously been a fave for so long. So I went... and had a wonderful time. She was warm and funny, seemed genuinely happy to be there. It allowed me to love her again.

    Janet Jackson, Velvet Rope and State of the World Tours: I got my freaking life at the Velvet Rope tour! Lost my voice for three whole days due to the amount that I screamed. It was my first big pop diva show, Usher opened and had a solid set as well. SOTW tour brought another milestone: first time on the floor! Will catch her a third time if the opportunity presents itself.

    Caribou, Our Love Tour: Dan Snaith brought the beats, fleshed out with a full band. He had a shy, retiring demeanor and seemed humbled by the crowd's ecstatic reception of him. His voice got drowned out by the bass and electronic textures on occasion, but was he was very a spirited presence. Would check him out again.

    Lady Gaga, ArtRave: The ARTPOP Ball Tour: I hadn't been to a big pop diva show in about 16 years at that point and was really missing that energy. Gaga brought it and then some! It was her stop in Seattle, which was both rescheduled from an earlier show and the last stop on the North American leg, so her and her crew were especially amped. Perhaps my best concert outfit

    Flying Lotus, You're Dead Tour: Thundercat opened and set the tone wonderfully. FlyLo's set found the crowd so mesmerized by the visuals, that most could barely bob their heads to the beats. Until the very last song, "Never Catch Me" when all hell broke loose...I have no idea how or why the moshing started, but it was like the energy people had been holding onto all night burst forth. A surreal experience.

    Blood Orange, Negro Swan Tour: A taught 90-minute set that took me through a range of sounds and emotions. Dev Hynes connected quite intimately with the crowd and was in fine voice throughout. Wonderful!
