Peter Walker @ The Hideout - SXSW Austin, TX

Also on the bill were Lord Fyre (bleh!), Warmer Milks, some guy from New Zealand and a T. Moore + Christina and Tom Carter trio.
I can't describe how beautiful Peter's set was, so just watch it.
The man Murston Thoore himself was sitting directly in front of me during the performance. He was wearing some big ass ugly green tennis shoes and his 15 ft 11" frame was spilling all over the the seats next to him. Great night!

edit: I forgot! Tetuzi Akiyama also played that night and was equally as wonderful
I also saw him a few months earlier do a fab-u-lous acoustic set, but that was probably '06.

'nother edit: boy, does youtube make music sound like shit or what?!

Grizzly Bear at the Society for Ethical Culture, which is basically a big seated church-type venue (incredible acoustics). A mindblowing show.

I didn't go to any concerts this year. Well, real concerts anyways. I forgot about Melt Banana, TV on the Radio was sold out, and Dinosaur Jr. was on my sister's birthday.

To my own surprise, the most enjoyable one was by a French artist :
Adrienne Pauly @ l'Elysťe Montmartre, Paris
Above Sonic Youth with the Flower-Corsano as openers, or Who Made Who in Aulnoye-Aymeries.

Erasure, The Brodsky quartet doing Verklarte Nacht and the GZA at ATP are probably my faves, with an honourable mention for Sunshine Republic,who were most amusingly hated by nearly the entire room.

I didn't really do much this year...

Dinosaur Jr. in Portland was fucking great. Awesome Color opening for them... not so much.

They're not bad but I found them a bit boring when I saw them (their music is too monotonous to my taste). I love "Daughters of the Soho riots" though.

It wasn't a great live year for me (unfortunately I couldn't attend any of the DDN shows).

I particularly enjoyed:

Jean-Louis Murat (La nef, AngoulÍme)
Klaxons (Garden nef party festival, AngoulÍme)
Muse (Garden nef party festival, AngoulÍme), surprisingly they ripped even though the latest record is rubbish
Bat for Lashes (Rock en Seine), they're better live in my opinion
BjŲrk (Rock en Seine)
An Pierlť (Le chabada, Angers), she didn't play enough songs from her previous record though (only one)

It would be really hard for me to narrow it down because I went to a lot of concerts, but off the top of my head, in no particular order:

No Fun Fest, esp. Raionbashi + Kutzkalina, Merzbow, Pain Jerk, Burning Star Core + Zaimph (just looking at the list again, everyone was great)

Pitchfork Fest (CHi), esp Sonic Youth, Dan Deacon, Yoko Ono and Thurston

Lollapalooza (CHi): esp - Iggy and The Stooges and Patti Smith

77 Drummers at Brooklyn Bridge

20th Anniversary Knitting Factory at Town Hall (Lou Reed, Rebecca Moore, Zorn and Bernstein, etc)

Black Dice, Sightings, and Awesome Color at Highline Ballroom

William Basinski at Issue Project Room (my favorite place. I could probably name a dozen more there that were great, incl Lee Ranaldo w/ Leah Singer twice. or the show I just saw there last week:Tony Conrad + C. Spencer Yeh, Emeralds + Carlos Giffoni, Sam Goldberg )

Television (sort of) at Central Park Summerstage

Suicide at South Street Seaport

Bang on a Can 26 hour Marathon at Wintergarden (even with terrible acoustics)

Oneida, Sightings, Ex-Models, Dirty Faces at PS-1

CMJ friday night show at Knitting Factory- inc: HEALTH, Sightings, AIDS Wolf, Aa, Pre
