ahh yes... I only went to Reading one day (as normal) so didn't see AF there... You are not only person that has said AF were not THAT great at Reading...

Well I missed the first ten minutes of the AF. And I was incredibly drunk. So it would have had to have been the greatest show in the history of all things for me to have clearly remembered it.

with Propaghandi on the 10th, Contravene on the 17th, and the Adolescents on the 28th, I dont think I can say what the best show of the year was yet..

Well if you add up being taught at a school of music by Deathcab for Cutie's Jason McGerr, touring with Jimmy Eat World and playing with Rilo Kiley, Pearl Jam, Death Cab, Sleater-Kinney and Cat Power, that's some amazing achievements. Go on, believe it, leave the skepticism at home.

let me start out by saying that this is my first year really getting into music and going to shows frequently.

lets see...Nine Inch Nails was way up there. It was so intense and i was up against the railing and shouting at the top of my lungs. While Queens of the Stone Age wasnt the best opening act (spare this one bit when the lead singer told a guy in the audience to suck his ****.), Autolux was really intense and an amazing show all on its own.

I did see The Pixies, but they werent nearly as good as I thought they would be. I would have been better with more audience reaction and interaction. Plus Frank Black and Kim Deal looked like they werent into it at all.

I have to give an honorable mention here to the secret machines as well, mainly because of the drummer. Having listened to Now Here Is Nowhere and really liking the drums on the first two tracks, and hearing so much about them live, i was really excited for the show. They lived up to all my expectations and that drummer is FULL of energy.
