Best Shows of 2011

I brought back my annual New Year's poll asking my friends to name their favorite concert of the year. It was another solid year in the music world. Here are a few selected results.

Let's start with the weather-related choices:

Amy Jordan and Luke Muellerleile - U2 in Minneapolis in a torrential downpour, worthy of two videos because this was one hell of a storm:

Fellow bloggers Nate Gagnon and Ben Siebers - Snoop Dogg in Madison:

During the Blizzaster:

Our top vote getter: Danny Linihan, Nic Tyson, Brett Keller - The Black Keys:

And Gold on the Ceiling from Letterman, because it's my favorite song right now:

Trevor Gray - Tinariwen

Jake Howard and Clayton Scherrer - The Strokes

Have a great 2012 and go see live music!
