We've had some threads collecting how people have felt about music over the last year, and music threads always seem to be very popular on this board, so lets continue
Favorite Album 2007
Worst Album 2007
SO this one is simple, what are your favorite shows you saw this year, I was inspired because I went to a GREAT show last night, Soul Asylum plays show at First Ave every christmas and I've been going for five years now, and last nights show was easily the best show of theirs I've ever been to, and I've been to quite a few. However, thanks to a lack of openers it didn't crack the top 3...
1)POS welcome home show at the Entry, September
I remember when I left this show I said to myself that might be the best show I've ever been too, it was four groups long which I normally hate, but every band was so good I kept thinking POS is going to wish he didn't book such great openers because it's going to make him look bad, but it literally got better and better with every act. Millionth Word, Digitata, Kill the Vultures and POS all absolutly killed it.
2)Dosh Lost take release show, March???
I won't lie to you, I included this show because I know I don't have the best memory in the world and I didn't want to have all fall/winter shows in my top3, it was between this the IIDaggers show(which was awsome) and the Sea vs. Shining Sea show(which I don't remember anything about other than liking it) So I went with the Dosh show, mostly because Dosh is incredible to watch live, and having Andrew Bird there to play with him really added to the show.
3)Doomtree Blowout 3, December
I've been a huge Doomtree fan for like 4 years now, I actually missed the first blowout which apperently was a good thing because the Varsity was way too small and the line literally went 3 blocks down the road. This is the second Blowout in the First Ave mainroom, which I've been to both, and this one was a great format. Going one by one, creating literally no downtime from about 8:30 all the way to 1am was pretty awesome.
I'm sorry my list is kinda obscure, I listen to mostly local stuff :elmer:
