This was my favorite show in DC (also my only show in DC, but still great).
 
 Overall, I'd have to go with Nouvelle Vague at the Fillmore or the jam session I had in my basement with Johnny Marr and Isaac Brock warming up for their tour.

i didnt really see many shows this year.
 
  Lollapalooza and V-Fest were my two favourites, but as far as single shows go. the best go to:
 
   Wolfmother - Flecthers
   Ben Harper / Damian Marley - Merriweather
   Elton John - Air Canada Centre
   Radio 4 / Small Sins - Sonar
   Starlight Mints - Fletchers (i think)
   
   Hot Chip and Lupe Fiasco kicked sonar's butt as well!
