YEAR IN REVIEW

This is an attempt to list a few favorites, not a “best of” list.  I can’t say I’ve gotten a chance to hear everyone’s record, and I definitely didn’t see every show I wanted to.  There are so many good bands around nowadays it’s hard to keep track- thanks for making local music so special.
