In Her Shoes

Tackling my bucket list, one half marathon at a time.

The Madison Music Scene is Hoppin’


I’ll get to the beats in a second, but……I’m officially signed up for the Arizona Half Marathon on January 20th! I guess it’s time to get my butt in gear. On Wednesday Rock ‘n’ Roll was offering $20 off any race for Aaron Rodgers Day 12.12.12.

No going back now...unless I want to waste $110.

Now to the tunes…

I don’t know what it is, but I have been musically crazed lately. I think it’s because my body notices I haven’t been to a concert in awhile. Since October 16th to be exact. So I’m craving a concert. Or 8. And it looks like 2013 is going to be quite musically friendly.


The Walkmen are playing at the Overture on January 19th and I was dying to go (thanks to Dominic for pointing this one out). But turns out this is the same weekend of the Half in AZ…priorities. So that one is out.

Kopecky Family Band at The Frequency

I saw The Lumineers at the Frequency back in April and they were phenomenal. The Frequency is a really small venue so we were right up with the band. Anyway, the Kopecky Family Band opened for the Lumineers that night and I loved their music. Turns out…KFB is playing with The Eastern Sea in Madison on January 25th. Add it to the calendar!


A friend of mine who always picks on me for my music taste (He hates Coldplay and is a Phish Phreak) finally found an artist that we both like…Martin Sexton! He’s playing at the Majestic on February 16th and this lovely guy already bought us tickets.


Remember when I was raving about Imagine Dragons a month and a half ago? Well, more great news. They’re playing in Milwaukee on March 2nd. I’m buying tickets the minute they go on sale tomorrow.

Now I’m just waiting for The Temper Trap to tour the US. I tweeted this at them the other day and got no response…I’ll keep trying. If you hate my music taste then you probably hated this post. If you like my music taste, check these bands out…I promise they won’t disappoint. By the way, I apologize for all the links.

Here’s today’s beat, which is from The Mahogany Sessions. I highly suggest following their YouTube channel.

  1. ahhh, such a great post. I am the opposite of you right now…I need to tone down the concerts! Imagine Dragons is coming to LA but the tickets are a bit pricey and I haven’t gotten into them enough yet. M Ward is playing here soon too but I am trying to talk myself out of it and focus on potentially doing Coachella again. You’re going to miss an amazing show because of a stupid run, your loss!

    • I know, I know. I’m bummed about the Walkmen. But what are you talking about?? You can NEVER go to too many concerts. I guess a lot of them that I’m going to play at small venues and are super cheap tix. Get into Imagine Dragons, they’re worth it!

      • I can’t get into them! I have been listening on Spotify and I just don’t really like any of there songs outside of the popular one. Tickets are a minimum of $45 each time I go to a show…but usually more around $75…it is making me want to go to Coachella again so I can just cram all my music into one weekend!

      • Bah, that makes me so jealous that Coachella is such easy access for you. Going to Coachella is on my bucket list!

  2. Oh dear, I’ve never heard of any of those bands you just talked about, am I an old lady?

  3. I am not a huge music person but my husband is. He got us (and friends) tickets to see Trampled By Turtles at the end of January and the Avett Brothers in February…both in Madison!
