Question Best show you've seenthis year...

It's nearly the end of the year, and i'm curious to see what peoples favorite shows of the year will be.

My personal favorite show i attended this year was seeing the Hold Steady at the west end cultural center in winnipeg. 10 dollars, dollar for dollar the best time i've ever had!!!

System of a Down, with Mars Volta. System ruled, but Mars Volta sounded like one big BLAHRHA. So bad it hurt, the mixing was really bad. System was wicked though and free. (I love friend's birthday partys)

Haven't gone yet, but if what people say is true it'll be Explosions In the Sky.

For anyone in the SF Bay area, I've seen the Phenomenauts twice this year, and both times they totally rocked. Great live show.

I would have explosions in my pants if I were to see Explosions in the Sky.

Best indie show this year was Xiu Xiu for me. I also had a lot of fun at Tilly and the Wall.

I was there... and that's my number 2. Was close I assure you but Arcade Fire are in their prime (rather than past it) and s-h-i-t-hot. Soulwax at Reading Fez club round up my top 3.

Yeah, the Arcade Fire were good, but the Pixies were pretty much the only band on the main stage who managed to make their set not sound like shít. After watching the Queens of the Stone Age mumble for the best part of an hour I didn't have high hopes for Frank and the rest, but bloody hell, the first guitar wail alone was the best sounding thing of the weekend.
