....uh... what?

Even though musical taste is purely subjective and there's no true right or wrong, wtf? I guess you're entitled to your opinion..

Well, they did milk that one album dry for years, so I can see being tired of them. I never saw them and like some of the songs so I'll check them out, conflicts permitting.

Best:
the acts I really want to see

Worst:
Iglu & Hartly
Coheed & Cambria
Tiesto
Passion Pit
David Guetta
Shoryuken!

Dead Weather is amazing live. I saw them play in L.A. And I've talked to many people that have said Dirty Projectors live is a must see.

Dude your list sucks. How can you dog on Dirty Projectors and Phoenix? Both these bands put on awesome live shows, I'm especially surprised because you like Grizzly Bear (who are also amazing). And having seen both Them Crooked Vultures and The Dead Weather I can say the dead weather rocked more, dismissing them is foolish. You also listed Echo and the Bunnymen as one of the worst acts of the year which is beyond idiotic.

Boourns list of the worst acts is much more appropriate. Shit throw Vampire weekend on there before Dirty Projectors, I feel I must stand up for them because they put on an AWESOME show and are VERY talented musically. I know it's your opinion but I just think you're very off base. As tall as Lions one of the best? Seriously? I do agree that Passion Pit are underwhelming live, but far from the worst.

Surprisingly I agree with a good amount of that list.... but putting Phoenix on the worst acts list is a no no
