Ranked by quality. All of them were pretty good, so don't be disappointed if
something seems low. I just moved to a big city and got a freelance job that
includes concert coverage (two of my reviews are included here) so expect a
lot more in the future.

|Planned to see but missed:|
ZZ Top/Jeff Beck - Dusty Hill fell and broke his hip the night before; tour canceled
Pallbearer - Sold out
American Football/Braid - Sold out, so I'm seeing AF and Joan of Arc on New Year's Day.
|Some cool concerts. Saw both 1, 2 and 14 as well, but at other places. Will probably get to see 5 and 13 next year. Strangely, in comparison to your ranking, Laura Stevenson (w/ the Cans) might have been my favorite concert this year. But it was a completely different leg of the tour, in Europe.|
I have two lined up for next year. Steel Panther and Slipknot/Korn.
|Real nice, buddy.|
I'm a bit gutted that American Football's UK shows next year are sold out.
I've got Viet Cong and Alex G lined up. Maybe, D'Angelo, although that one is pretty pricey...
|good stuff. saw russian circles, behemoth, meshuggah, deafheaven and mastodon this year. all were great|
|yeah i saw yes |
|Wanted to see Opeth, Behemoth and Mastodon but |
it didn't happen.
