beat it, 2010!

where to begin?... how about with last year's new year's resolution: i wanted to keep track of every concert i attended so i could do an end of the year count. i have been on a concert hiatus since november, but up until that point, i recorded 72 shows (that's with lollapalooza and acl shows clumped together as one show). yikes.

my favorites of 2010:

miike snow @ galaxy backyard & acl
memory tapes/washed out @ klub krucial
beach house/washed out @ emo's
lcd sound system @ stubb's
mumford & sons @ la zona rosa
gogol bordello @ lollapalooza
arcade fire @ lollapalooza
the fuck buttons @ lollapalooza
the foals @ acl
deerhunter @ fun, fun, fun fest
jónsi @ austin music hall
sufjan stevens @ the long center (tie w/ jónsi for most beautiful show of 2010!)

ah, summer in new york. i love you forever: bowery ballroom, music hall of williamsburg & ps1 moma. and in austin: the long center and the parish
