he's great isn't it! kept on giving away dubplates and stuff haha. mad tunes were being played. Me, I love DJs (but I can completely understand how one could not enjoy that ), meaning I've seen plenty of sets this year, but it was cleary amongst the most enjoyable hehe. was a great night as well - Pinch & Adrian Sherwood release party, he was guesting there. wicked party

Hmm, I'm going to have to think on my actual "top 10" proper, but I will say that, aside from seeing some new faces and bands for the first time, I really enjoyed seeing Sleater-Kinney back in Feb. And I had a transcendent little experience with an even older favorite in the spring.

I had no initial plans to even try to get to the SK show, but with friends like mine (over-enthusiastic thirty-somethings who worshipped SK in another life), it wasn't surprising to find myself on the other end of a "duuude- I've got an extra ticket to see SK tomorrow! You coming or what?" kind of conversation. And come I did, mainly because the lady was out of town and I was bored and lonely, but MAN did I enjoy it.

It was like 1998 all over again. with better equipment, certainly, and a much more crowded house. It was my ... ninth? tenth? SK show of the millennium, and I think it was all the more electrifying because of how little I expected walking in.

But, that's just one show that comes to mind. I've been to more concerts this year than in any year in recent memory, and before a I can start ranking I need to think back to the experiences.

Not gonna lie though - I saw Jesus & Mary Chain this year, and it was bloody unforgettable. Different energy than the SK show... At SK, I had the impression that if I started to chat with anyone about my honest feelings on the band and their public personas (ahem, Carrie), I might be lynched. Everyone was singing along, but I was just kinda grooving.

At J&MC, it was clear that I was the wild idiot kid in the room. I read reviews of the show later where writers admitted to having a kind of a take-it-or-leave-it attitude toward the band. I, on the other hand, may well have been foaming at the mouth. It was so foggy and droney and stoney and beautiful, and I sang my smokey little lungs out.

Until I can reflect further, I'll go with Jesus & Mary Chain for the win.

Oh! And Swans. Shit.

Something about Portlandia or NPR or that gassy little Rolling Stone spread they did. Something with a touch of "back in my day" and an air of undeserved generational superiority. Something that only I would find funny.

Maybe I'm being too dramatic, but I did kind of wish face-palming was still a thing when I glanced around at the crowd.
