My favorites were The Octopus Project at the Kessler, DeVotchKa at the Granada, The Black Angels at the Loft and Bon Iver at the Winspear Opera House. I am so, so mad at myself for missing out on Beirut at the Prophet Bar in November!
Megan! You didn’t see Beirut!! I almost bought a plane ticket for that show! Some of my favorite shows of all time were at the Gypsy Tea Room…it feels weird calling it Prophet now.
