i started putting together a list but i've seen so many shows this year i'm afraid i've forgotten some (my memory is swiss cheese).  i need to consult my ticket stub collection at home.  plus, waiting until tomorrow allows me to consider thievery for the list, since i'm seeing them tonight.  last year's TC@930 show was definitely in my top-3 for 2005.
 
 early stand-outs, in order:
 radiohead at tower theater
 foo fighters at DAR
 gogol bordello (last night) at 930
 massive attack at 930
 raconteurs (opening for dylan) at patriot center

I admit I don't know much about them, but I thought this show was really boring.  I  really wanted to like them, but I just didn't get it.

what!? i LOVE the YYYs, the only bummer about that show was that they only played an hour long set, but i met them all after the show and hugged Karen O, so it was forgiven.

Best in no particular order (except for the first one):
 1. Girls Against Boys - Touch and Go Fest (I turned thirty that weekend and I have been listening to them for fifteen years!)
 
 2. Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins - 9:30
 
 3. Pretty Girls Make Graves w/Tangiers - Black Cat
 
 4. Wolf Parade - Black Cat
 
 5. Wolfmother - Black Cat
 
 6. Riverboat Gamblers - Rollins Band - 9:30
 
 7. Rancid - all three night at the Black Cat - nice guys, good and varied sets from them. H20 and Theo and The Skyscrapers were also good as openers
 
 8. Detroit Cobras and The Ambitions - Black Cat
 
 Luckily I got to do posters for a bunch of these shows and through that I got out of the house more and seeing some bands I would not have normally seen. Unfortunately, I missed the Gogol Bordello show last night due to a furnance and work issue even though I had free tickets. You can check it out the poster at  El Jefe Design.

I didn't see as much this year as I had hoped, or as in previous years.  But out of what I did see, these took the cake...
 
 Sonic Youth/BYOP @ 9:30 - you should walk out of every show that sweaty.  
 Regina Spektor @ 9:30
 Voxtrot @ Georgetown U - small, packed room...lots of dancing...they played everything...
 Nickel Creek @ 9:30 - a mandolin solo infused 2+ hour set
 OK Go @ Webster Hall - because a private show with one of your favorite bands and only 400 other people really doesn't get much better than that.  
 
 
 And as far as local acts, I was interminably impressed with...
 
 Army of Me
 Greenland
 Soft Complex
 Georgie James
 Washington Social Club
 Paul Michel
 Hotspur
 The Evens
 Monopoli
 The Hard Tomorrows
 
 etc etc etc

X/Rollins Band in Cleveland
 Bob Dylan at Patriot Center
 Les Claypool and Ween at All Good Festival in WV
 Moistboyz in Baltimore
 NIN/Bauhaus in Toronto
 
 Disappointments:
 Reverend Horton Heat at 9:30 - Wish he would change the set list a bit more.  Its been pretty similar for 15 years.
 Sonic Youth at 9:30 - I know alot of people liked this, but I was just unhappy that they didn't dip into the back catalog a little more.  I think there were three songs played that weren't on the new record.
