9 live favourites of 2009

151 bands into the year, I tried to pick my favourite live acts. I don’t want to order them… though Wildbirds & Peacedrums are the best (obviously!), the rest are in no order. These are the 9 that stood out more than the rest:

Wildbirds & Peacedrums

Emmy the Great

Ane Brun

of Montreal

Ghost Bees


Jeffrey Lewis

Neko Case

Frida Hyvönen

Those are the ones that sprang to mind first, though I’m sure I’ve forgotten someone wonderful too. I really don’t know what it’s going to take for Wildbirds to be knocked off the top spot, though I said that about of Montreal… and then Wildbirds came along. I’m really looking forward to Scary Mansion and St Vincent this month.
