    Either Arcade Fire in Phoenix Park in '07 or Parenthetical Girls in Whelans last year.

    Although, Arcade Fire met and exceeded the awesomeness expectations, Parenthetical Girls were a fascinating new surprise. They're a really extraordinary thing, that band.

    so hard to pick just one but Ican say Arcade Fire at sasquatch in 07 was pretty fucking awesome. i understood, finally, why people jizzed over that band so much.

    or Portishead at the Santa Monica Civic in 98 (so fucking loud!)
    "It's in the K" - Martha Stewart

    Since the show list is very minimal...
    August 29 // Chemical Brothers w/ Chromeo & Yacht @ Hollywood Bowl
    September 26 // Vampire Weekend w/ Beach House & the Very Best @ Hollywood Bowl
    October 5 // ARCADE FIRE @ Henry Miller Library
    October 13 // Corin Tucker Band @ The El Rey
    (someone should give me Sufjan Stevens tickets, aint got none of those)
