You Ain’t No Picasso’s top concerts of 2010

This was a pretty interesting year for concerts. Even after missing Bonnaroo for health reasons, I still caught a lot of great shows. However I think overall the top shows I caught this year didn’t quite reach last year. But, you know, I was finally able to see shows by Local Natives, Joanna Newsom, Deerhoof and a non-festival show by Sharon Jones. Not too bad of a year, you guys.

  1. Wow, those all look like fun!
    I was lucky enough to see the Local Natives at one point too. They are absolutely amazing live. Thanks for showing these!

  2. Awesome shots. Local Natives are awesome and the shot of Les Sav Fav- brilliant. I saw some good gigs this year and reckon one Sydney Band deserves a shout out- brilliant live and have been following them online at Really bloody good stuff.

    Thanks again for the awesome shots.

  3. Wow a lot of these bands have played in Champaign, IL over the last year or so. Great city for good shows. How lucky we are..
