Top 10 Favorite Concerts of 2010: #6 – #10

2010 has been a fantastic year for seeing shows in St. Louis, especially since I was able to see more shows this year than I probably did the last 5 years combined. A big thanks to all the PR/label contacts I’ve had the pleasure of communicating with, the bands I’ve been able to meet and shake hands with and you for stopping by and entertaining this hobby of mine.

Anyways, here’s the first installment of my personal favorite concerts of 2010:

10. The National @ The Pageant (9/30)

The National @ The Pageant - 9.30.10

Wonderfully deep and thick lighting to match the dramatic mood of the group.

 

9. Peter Wolf Crier @ The Gargoyle (10/26)

Peter Wolf Crier @ The Gargoyle - 10.26.10

What do you do when the mics don’t work? Just turn off all the equipment and play an amazing impromptu acoustic set.

 

8. Titus Andronicus @ Vintage Vinyl (3/14)

Titus Andronicus @ Vintage Vinyl - 3.14.10

The show that flipped my opinion of these guys from “who?” to “whoa!”

 

7. Eisley @ Old Rock House (6/29)

Finally the year I was able to see the Tyler, TX dream-popsters after years of missing their shows. Did not disappoint.

 

6. Emery @ The Firebird (6/10)

After seeing them play the Hi-Pointe back in college, it was great to see that the boys still know how to own the stage

So that’s the first half of my list. I’ll be back later in the week to reveal my Top 5 favorite shows this year.

In the meantime, let’s hear it – What were your favorite shows of 2010?
