I didn't get to a ton of shows this year with the move across the country,etc. Now that I have a real job, one of my resolutions for 2007 will be to get out to more shows.
 
 Here's my top 5:
 1. Jeff Klein/Afterhours/Twilight Singers, June 15, Doug Fir in Portland, OR
 2. Pete Yorn, July 29, Doug Fir in Portland, OR
 3. Jesse Malin/Ryan Adams with a special appearance by Phil Lesh, April 24, Roseland in Portland, OR
 4. Annie Stela/Joseph Arthur, October 13, Doug Fir in Portland, OR
 5. Ghosty, November 20, Rotture in Portland, OR
 
 Honorable mentions would go to the other Twilight Singers and Pete Yorn shows I've also seen this year.  :D  /fangirl

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. [/b]
I like this band a lot, have seen them numerous times before. I just didn't click with this show, plus as you mentioned, it was way too short.
 
 It's funny how different people perceive the same show. I thought the Arctic Monkey show was really good -- sound, performance, songs -- but it seems like most people didn't care for it.

I drove down to The Norva to see the Arctic Monkeys, everything was basically perfect. But i lsitned to the 930 show on NPR and they were WAY more into it than they were at The Norva, the only thing that really stuck out was that Alex opened the show by coming out on stage alone and starting with "Riot Van", ouside of that the 930 show was way better.
