WHAT WAS THE BEST CONCERT YOU SAW IN 2006 — and WHY?!?!?

The end of the year is fast approaching and we all know what you’re thankful for, but I’m more curious about what your favorite concert was. Also, try to exclude festival sets or anything like that — that shit don’t count…

    Jurassic 5 and STS9 at Red Rocks. I was second row center for the show (Thanks Amy) and J5 was so happy to be playing in front of 9,000+. The world needs more socially conscious positive hip-hop.

    Wow, there were a lot of concerts I’ve been to this year, but Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers w/ The Strokes in Gainesville, FL was one of the best shows I’ve been to since the Foo Fighters and Chili Peppers tour in 2000.

    Absolutely amazing…and great seats. Gainesville knows how to show their legend some thanks and the atmosphere proved it.

    Easily the “Bustle In Your Hedgerow” show at the Abbey Pub in Chicago. Great venue, great crowd and great energy after a long Lollapolloza weekend!

    -MMJ @ Rites of Spring, Nashville: barely a festival, more like an outdoor show- beautiful weather, Jim James, and Vandy girls.
    -WSP in Lexington: first time seeing Herring w/ Panic was epic (plus Dirty Dozen- ohhh man! very dirty)
    -N.M. All Stars- saw em 3 times each time they keep getting more amazing

    Dave Matthews, Summer Tour, East Troy, Saturday Night, holy lord….cliche, but so f’n awesome, also Mars Volta @ the Rave Sept. 23rd. Those two shows were unbearably awesome, Dave Matthews has the edge tho however on this matter. Wilco @ Summerfest is also highly mentionable
