From: Auburn, WA Favorite Bands: Animal Collective, Tera Melos, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Bygones, The Number 12 Looks Like You, Tchaikovsky, At the Drive-In, Astrud Gilberto, Sergio Mendes, many more... My All-Time Favorite Artist: Animal or ATDI First Concert Attended: Coheed and Cambria, Bear vs. Shark Last Concert Attended: Sasquatch All time Favorite Concert: Daft Punk at the Wa Mu All time Favorite Festival: Sasquatch Sasquatches Attended: 3 Sasquatch Wishlist: Animal Collective, Donald Glover, that i get to go. That's the main wish.
Maybe because "favorite" means "favorite right now". I could easily have said Depeche Mode or Led Zeppelin or The Police because I will always love them and because they were hugely important to me at some point in my life, but that doesn't really have a lot of context in terms of the conversation at hand.
In other words, those are my favorite bands that are current. They are the ones that, if they played locally, I'd be there in an instant. However, going to Key Arena to see Depeche Mode a while back didn't excite me in the least.
