Well since the thread became THE TOP 10 I thought I’d top of my list. So here we go in no particular order: 1. Shearwater - Powerful stage presence via the voice of Meiburg and percussion of Thor. 2. Active Child - Fusing a choir boy voice a harp and adding a bit of an electronic edge seems to interesting to pass up. 3. Beck - He's Beck and i've yet to see him live (fail on my part). 4. Mogwai - Next to Talk Talk and Slint probably my favorite post-rock outfit. Especially when they get LOUD. 5. Craft Spells - I'm really digging the New New Order thing. 6. The Walkmen 7. Spiritualized 8. An hour or so in a packed Banana Shack (artist doesn’t matter) 9. The War on Drugs 10. Beirut
1. Jack White/Pretty Lights/ Beck 2. Tenacious D 3. The Shins 3 1/2. Gary Clark Jr 4. Explosions in the Sky 5. Silversun Pickups 6. Metric 7. Nero 8. The Roots 9. The Joy Formidable 10. Portlandia and any acts in the Shack!

Donald Glover is awesome. "Childish Gambino" is freaking terrible.
Yeah if Childish Gambino wasn't Donald Glover I probably would hate him. But it's Donald Glover which immediately makes him awesome.
Yeah, I hate that Childish Gambino stuff so goddamn much. However, when I was checking some of the stuff out on Youtube I was pretty impressed at his performance. Some of it was a way too over dramatic, but on the whole you can tell he is very well rehersed and confident in what he is doing. He's pretty much on point for everything. I wouldn't say he has a super impressive flow or anything, but he absolutely nails it in terms of delivery and dynamics live.
I'm a sucker for artists who clearly put tons of work into what they do. Like the old timey days.
I'm still not THAT big enough of a sucker to actually go and see Childish Gambino.
