2007 by Shows

Its like I did my shows this year on the foreman grill - you know, "cut the fat". All that was left was exactly what I wanted to see. Which means even though I only attended 41 shows (62 sets) I had at LEAST a 90% AWESOME rating. And I'd say that's way better than ever before.

Some notes:
* I refuse to call Irving Plaza anything other than Irving Plaza
* My Upwelling count was only 6 this year - but I think it's fair
to say they played way less locally (yay touring & record deal!!)
* Suckiest Sound Ever award goes to The Highline Ballroom
(for equal parts earsplitting volume and feedback!)
* Favorite show of the year goes to... Travis
(for putting on a most magically delicious show)
