As with last year, I think it's smooth sailing the rest of the year for gigs - no plans, so I think I can go ahead and post this.
The total - 281 performances, up from 246 last year, or one every 1.3 days. The difference in numbers is pretty much directly attributable to one additional large festival: Iceland Airwaves, bring the festival total to four: SXSW, Coachella, Iceland Airwaves, All Tomorrow's Parties.
Best performance of the year? Daft Punk, for the second year in a row, followed by Spiritualized Acoustic Mainlines
Non-local band seen the most this year? Thurston Moore in 5 different configurations: twice solo, once as Thurston Moore Soundz, once with Sonic Youth and once with Glenn Branca
Bands I missed that I'm upset about: Grinderman et al at the April ATP, Stars, the Shellac residency
Loudest band: Sunnn O))) + A Place to Bury Strangers (tie)
Worst band: Tiesto
