I spent a fair bit of time last week going through all the shows that I saw this past year and cobbled together a 'best of' that is certainly omitting some great shows. Click on the photo to check it out.

 



what are some of yours?

SY/Wild Flag/Kurt Vile. Possibly SY's last American gig/last non-festival gig, etc.

Erase Errata/Talk Normal. Their first East Coast gig in four years.

Saw Wild Flag four times, total.

Lee Ranaldo Band's first two gigs of ever. Quite tremendous.

Patrick and I saw way more shows in preceding years than in 2011, for a
variety of reasons.

kode9 djing at dour festival was by far the best thing i've seen all year. by far. and that's saying a lot considering i've seen great live bands such as mogwai, godspeed you black emperor, battles, chokebore, atari teenage riot, duchess says, public enemy, etc, this year. kode9 was close to perfection.

Fucking hell. I think I broke my own record for number of gigs I went to this year. Averaged at 3 a week. Erasure/ Sophie-Ellis Bextor were amazing, The Fall won over all. I think that in this moment right now Hobo Sonn was the best local gig, though Deepkiss 720 came close. Supernormal was good, but mostly because I played for a very long time indeed.

i only saw them once, but they were on a bill that was unfairly weighted against them (Bailter Space, Cosmic Psychos).

i've seen a fair amount of reunited bands that have great live shows (in fact, more good than not).

polvo
stooges (both w/ Rock Action and Williamson)
mission of burma
thinking fellers union local 282
come
gbv
scratch acid
jesus lizard
sleep

Not necessarily but I see you also were caught up in that failed Sly and Robbie tour from 2008.. it happened to me in 2005 and 2009 as well.. I think he just has a bad agent and plays shows with bad promoters who don't understand the complexities of making travel arrangements for international artists yo

With reggae shows ALWAYS know the promoter and if it is not somebody legit and consistent don't bother, there are sure to be cancellations.
