Great Perfect Thanks
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

The Full list, from +- to Yo La TengoCollapse )

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
