So I don't know if you've noticed, but the last few weeks have been absolutely insane when it comes to concert announcements here in Missoula. Cake and Ben Folds. Flogging Molly and Social Distortion. Incubus. Robert Plant. K. Flay. Uncle Kracker. Melissa Etheridge.

And we're just adding those onto a list that includes Mumford and Sons, Portugal. The Man, Norah Jones, Foreigner, Brad Paisley, Aaron Lewis, Steve Miller Band, Gin Blossoms, and more. That doesn't even get into all the great shows in Spokane or Billings or upcoming festivals like Under The Big Sky Fest or Headwaters Country Jam.

So yeah, it's getting pretty nuts. I had to make an Excel sheet just to keep track of everything I plan on going to. Which show are you most stoked to see? If you could only see one of these shows, which is the one you DESPERATELY have to go to?

For kicks, here's my current Top 5 (subject to change based on any upcoming show announcements that continue to blow my mind):

1. Cake/Ben Folds at Kettlehouse

2. Flogging Molly/Social Distortion at Kettlehouse

3. The Struts at The Wilma

4. The Mountain Goats at The Top Hat

5. Mumford and Sons/Portugal. The Man at Ogren Park

...plus Robert Plant at Kettlehouse, Jackson Browne at Big Sky, Incubus at Kettlehouse, and dang, just so many more. What's your choice?
