Frank Turner – Blackheart and Cedar Street SXSW – both shows were great in their own way

Green Day – Marquee Theater Phoenix – one Hell of a show, an intimate warm-up for their tour in front of 500 people

Parquet Courts – Red 7 (inside show) SXSW – the better of their two great shows I caught. Probably my band of the year

Reverend & The Makers – Hickory Street SXSW- super fun night that turned into a late night party

Palma Violets – The Mohawk SXSW - their live show lived up to the hype more than the album did
