The only reason for presenting such a list to the public: hope to turn you onto these artists and their music.
I don’t go to concerts that often anymore.
Raising a 5-yr old, plus being selective with age reduces my live action to probably 20-30 gigs each year.
Having said that, 2011 was outstanding.
Firstly: I got to see live an artist I was waiting since 1990, Meredith Monk.
I feel lucky that the pain endured during communist years is rewarded now with a special flavor of freedom: seeing artists live.
My definitive 2011-live concert list, in chronological order is next. What’s yours?
- Meredith Monk in Manhattan, New York – June 2011 – Education of the Girlchild Revisited;
- Galactic in Toronto – June 2011, promoting their live album.
- Steve Wilson at the Opera House in Toronto in November – the Grace for Drowning tour
