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…

    Tom Waits, Akron, Ohio

    That man is a genius.

    Naked Raygun- Secret show at The Cobra Lounge a couple months ago. Fantastic old school Chicago punk rock at it’s finest. The show a few weeks later at Subterranean couldn’t touch it. It was clearly one of “those” nights.

    Acoustic Planet Tour at Chastain in Atlanta. Adrian Belew, Umphrey’s McGee, and Bela Fleck and the Flecktones all sitting in with each other. Belew playing “Red” with UM + UM jamming “Stomping Grounds” with the ‘Tones = change of pants.

    Umphrey’s McGee @ The Electric Factory (May)
    Gov’t Mule @ The Bowery Ballroom (H&M; release party)
    Gov’t Mule @ The Commodore Ballroom (2nd night)

    All 3 were equally amazing, I think. It’s hard to pick :)

    Radiohead at the Greek Theater in Berkeley

    I was blown away by them at the 20,000 capacity Shoreline Ampitheater in 2000. The Greek is about 5 or 6K — unbelievably powerful concert in the East Bay fog.

    The Walkmen at the Mohawk Place in Buffalo (January)
    Built to Spill at the Town Ballroom in Buffalo (Sept)
    Zero 7 with Jose Gonzalez at Webster Hall (Sept)

    What a great year for live music!

    David Bazan. In July, his show at the Casbah in San Diego was great. Four months later, his show at the smaller, The EARL, in Atlanta, was even better.

    Nobody has mentioned Trey, Mike and the Duo at 10KLF yet? Rediculous. Best show by far… thank you Justin for sending me…
