Rat Dogg (February 2007) This was the best show of my life, aside from a crowd full of deadheads, the band was fantastic, nothing better then hearing Estimated Prophet go into an authentic reggae rhythm bridge (they used Marley Natural Mystic rhythm), i went insane at that point being the only Ras in the whole venue.... the rest is all reggae

It was a good year for shows here in Los Angeles, seen a show every other week at least, all big time artists, not any backyard boogies..

I could not believe it at all! but here are the highlights

Ras Michael and the Sons of Negus (Dec 12, 2007)
Abyssinians (August 2007 twice)
Burning Spear (Aug 2007 Hollywood Bowl)

Bunny Wailer (February 2007)
Jr Reid (November 2007)
Gladiators (February 2007)
Groundation (September 2007)

Sierre Leone Nation refugees and Diabate damn near brought tears to my eyes and Farke Toure was excellent as well. I also saw Dan Deacon and Girl Talk which I had to say had a much younger and more hyped audience than almost anything I've ever seen. Melt Banana was good, consistent, and the same as usual with new songs. Bonaroo had some highlites(tortoise, hot chip, Ween, Sasha and Digweed(really fucked up for this one), Ween, and Manu Choa.

Yeah. I forgot to mention Deacon and GT. Not really a big fan of their albums myself but the show was fun as hell. Oh, I saw Incubus this year. Don't even ask. It was terrible.

Dirty Projectors are the shit. I saw them open up for Xiu Xiu when they were fucking nobody. The sound guy was being a total fucking dick and the singer was just like "Uh. Fuck you, then." and just kept playing.

Yeah I was pleasantly surprised, especially since some people that had seen them told me that they had been mediocre recently, but they were really great in Sydney, they seemed to be glad to be back too. Perhaps they hadn't expected so much support after over a decade of not being here but the crowd was really into it, and so were they.

Everybody says that, and I can see what they mean as far as it not owning up to their other stuff, but it's not HORRIBLE, imo.

If I have to name just one, then it's definitely Boredoms... easy!
I was so excited to finally see them and yet they were even better than I had imagined.

After that it's more difficult, but both NNCK gigs I saw this year were great too for different reasons. Also saw Circle twice this year. I've yet to see them being less than awesome. Sonic Youth doing Daydream Nation 3 times in London was very good as well; especially the final show, but they were all great. Jazkamer in the full Metal Machine lineup was probably the most spectacular thing I saw this year. AMT & The Melting Paraiso UFO - finally got to see them. Shellac; always worth mentioning, because they only play this part of the world like once ever 3-5 years... so roll on 2010. Boris probably in the top 10 too.

Also Trad Gras och Stenar, Peter Brotzmann Chicago Tentet, Konono No1, The Ex playing a live soundtrack to A Clockwork Orange theater performance... lots of good stuff.

well, it's good in spots, but my point is that they now sound like simple plan with a very noodly guitar player instead of how they sounded on the first album, like at the drive-in on meth or something. out of context it's ok, but put in perspective of their discography....
