I still have two more lists about 2009 coming up, but now it's time for my top ten favourite shows from last year. I like to write this article early in January after the holiday break away from the shows so that I have time to go back and relive the past year through my blog entries. After looking through my photos from last year, I estimate that I photographed about 160 different bands, which is down about 30 from last year. However, out of those 160, I photographed a handful of them many times over. It was difficult to see a few great shows get pushed off the bottom of my list, but that's just the reality of making a top 10 list. Here they are, the 10 that floated to the top, but thanks to all the bands that I saw perform this year - you are a big contributor to my mental well-being.
