I didn't go to a lot of shows at all, really. I loved seeing the Roots again, but the Jay-Z show in October tops my short-list.

Streetlight Manifesto put on a great show.
My Bloody Valentine was AMAZING, but we only got to see half the show due to some FUCKING BULLSHIT.


Fun Fun Fun Fest blew everything else away. Got to see:

Danzig
The Jesus Lizard
The Black and White Years
Growing
some of Fuck Buttons
Neon Indian
Mika Miko
Youth Brigade
D.R.I. (fucking intense as shit)
Melt-Banana
Gorilla Biscuits (who sucked)
Face to Face (SUUUUUCKED)

Of course there are tons of local shows I went to last year, but I'll have to think about this throughout the day to remember more big names.

1. Clutch
2. Baroness

I didn't see many shows myself.

However, I make it a habit to go see Clutch once a year at least. Imho they're one of the best bands of the last 20 years.

The Pixies with Jay Reatard.

There were others, but that was a standout, for obvious reasons.

R.I.P. Jay. :(

1. Edgar & Johnny Winter (Edgar was fantastic, Johnny was ok at best, but then again he can't even walk, lol).

2. Joe Bonamassa (He destroyed the place, ripping up the guitar).

3. Peter Frampton (If he didn't play his most popular work the show would of been good, but he did and it was a mixed bag of good and bad).

4. Robin Trower (A good performance).

Green Day/Kaiser Cheifs was awesome as hell

I regret missing Kings of Leon & Paramore & I really wish Alice in Chains came to Tampa.

Combichrist, with Dismantled, Aesthetic Perfection, and some terrible band that was a miserable failure as opening acts. Aesthetic Perfection was fucking amazing, Dismantled was really good, but Combichrist fucked shit up, and was overall insane.

You sir, are a bitch.

NIN|JA immediately comes to mind. I Know I went to a few more, but both bands were good as it is, but Street Sweeper Social Club as an opener? Jesus Christ, amazing!

Built to Spill w/ Disco Doom and Violent Soho. BTS has got to be one of the best bands live, and in general. ;)

Green Day was good, Seattle WA, although I was pretty wasted

I also enjoyed the Offspring this summer

I saw Hells Bells this fall

I would say the Offspring takes the cake this year

KISS Alive 35 in Pittsburgh PA. The show was amazing and it even converted a few of my friends that I had to drag with me into full fledged KISS fans.
