I wasn’t at too many gigs this year but what I saw were mostly very good. I’d pick out the Sufjan Stevens gig at The Playhouse as the best indeed possibly the best of my life never mind this year as it was so brilliantly lit and sound engineered and focussed on my album of the Year Carrie and Lowell.
Special thanks must go to the Edinburgh Fesival for welcoming contemporary music into its bosom
So these were all great…
The Seaford Mods
King Creosote (doing from Scotland with Love)
The Stranglers (supported by The Rezillos)
I also saw a great jazz band at Bar 38 on Christopher St in NYC.
