Cool to see that Aggrolites mention! Definitely one of the best shows I saw this year.
 
 I guess I'll have to think about my top ten though...why oh why oh why oh why did i not go to Daft Punk?!

I only went to one show but it would've put all others to shame anyway.

How do you manage to exist on this board? Bravo for not getting sucked into the conformist indie mentality of this board (as I have to some degree).

Agreed.  I'm always amazed that people with different tastes can handle posting on this forum.

At work I listen to indie 97.9 on the web and during the drive home it's the oh-so-hated clear channel stations. I go to small club and coffee house shows but I can't say they would top any best of list or that they're the ones I get really excited about.  As for surviving on this board, I guess I'm intrigued by the indie-conformist mentality or I'm just easily entertained.

I saw quite a bit fewer club/arena shows this year than I have in the last five or six years [33 versus usually over 50].  I did go to two multi-day festivals, which was new for me.  
 
 - Sloan, Black Cat, Sun May 13
 - You Am I, SxSW
 - Hoodoo Gurus & Mooney Suzuki, SxSW
 - The Hold Steady, Lollapalooza
 - QOTSA, Ram's Head Live, Wed 9/26
 - Morrissey, Wolftrap July 2
 - Spoon w/ The Ponys, 9:30, Oct 23
 - The National, the Rosebuds, 9:30, Sept 6
 - The Hold Steady, Art Brut, Terminal 5/NYC, Nov 21
 - The Police, Boardwalk Hall (AC), Nov 3
 
 The Who and Bruce Springsteen at Verizon each get honorable mention.  The Who should probably be on the list....
 
 I missed a bunch of shows I really wanted to see like The Hives....
