2011 In The Comatorium: Live!

5 best shows of the year for 2011, ranked.
5Trophy Scars

The 5 hour trek to New Jersey, on which my friends and I endured horrible standstill traffic resulting in blazing heat in a crowded car with no A/C, then almost dying when the traffic picked up. Into a horrendous thunderstorm. Oh yeah no wipers either. But arriving in time to the venue, conversing with Jerry and Bryan and finding them to be awesome guys, and then watching them tear the place up... well, victory tasted pretty sweet that night. w/ Monday Night Bear Claw, The Sun The Moon The Stars.
4Frank Turner

Since discovering Turner about a year and half ago, my interest in the English songwriter slowly grew into an obsession when in september his tour with Andrew Jackson Jihad came to the ottobar. Similar to the La Dispute show, the crowd made the night. With four times as many people, the whole crowd singing along with Turner's every word was rather incredible. The lengthy setlist, Turner's eagerness to interact with the crowd and personalize the show (Counting Crows cover, Raining in Baltimore), and the overall excellent showmanship of his Sleeping Souls backing band, the night was a rather memorable one. w/ Andrew Jackson Jihad, Into It. Over It.
3Elton John

Elton John is old, and kinda fat. And really gay. But god damn if at the age of 64, he doesnt STILL put on one of the greatest shows I've ever seen. From playing for a solid three hours, to his lower pitched but still perfectly on key singing, and his ever impeccable piano playing, the old fag still rocks it. Solo.
2La Dispute

In a dingy, small, hole in the wall basement of Baltimore with about 100 people in the middle of summer. Probably the hottest and sweatiest show I've ever attended. By the time LD took the stage after Defeater's set, there was literally sweat dripping from the rafters.Everyone screaming every word back at Jordan was one of the best things i've witnessed at a concert. The place's convenient lack of a stage provided a ridiculous intimacy the likes of which have been unmatched before or since. w/ Defeater, Hostage Calm, Native, Former Thieves
1Jeff Mangum

The opportunity alone to see him in such an intimate venue (about 400 people) coupled with the general "mood" of the night, it went down as the single most memorable show I've attended. Jeff walked onstage to a thunderous audience and waited for silence. He then played Oh Comely and for 8 minutes the crowd watched in awe and complete silence. And then he did it like a dozen more times, and it was good. Especially Jeff coming into the center of the floor for the sitdown singalong circle with Aeroplane and Engine. w/ Tall Firs.
