Alright, I haven't exactly been able to see 1 concert a month, but I've done pretty well. Here's what I've gotten so far.
The Shins (Vive Voce opened)
Bishop Allen (part of Dallas Music Fest)
Ted Leo (Love of Diagrams opened)
Bob Dylan (Jimmy Vaughn opened)
Wilco (Dr. Dog opened)
That's six shows in nine months, which isn't bad considering I didn't really decide to do this until late February.
I'm going to go see Rilo Kiley in October, Tegan and Sara in November, and there's the New Pornographers sometime soon. That will be 9 shows. so, if I don't put another show in there somewhere, that's pretty damn close and I'd be happy with that.
(Edited to add that I just this morning saw that Ted Leo has added a new show in Denton in November, so I immediately bought tickets. So, add that to the list and it makes 10 shows).
