Year in Review: Gigs
Okay, I'm *pretty* sure that I'm not seeing any more bands for the rest of the year, so here we go: my complete list of bands and artists I've seen this year. The total: 246 performances - or one band every 1.4 days. Figure an average of half hour per performance and we have 5 full days of music. I have no idea how I pulled this off, though the FIVE FESTIVALS helped - SXSW, Coachella, All Tomorrow's Parties, Touch & Go and Brainwaves.

Non-local band seen the most? Mogwai, at four times, in four cities.
Best performance of the year? Daft Punk, hands down.
Bands I missed that I'm upset about: Flipper, Nurse with Wound, The Editors, The Pet Shop Boys
Loudest band: Iggy & The Stooges

I love your end-of-year roundups. How the hell do you remember everything? Which ENERGY show did you see?

I saw the first one. I remember because I write a recap of basically every day of the year. It was my resolution last year. It was a pain, but worth it.
