Fuck this is hard trying to remember everyone I saw this year....

Absolute favorite moments were Tenacious D Fuck Her Gently sing-a-long, being on stage for Dan Mangan in Calgary, and wandering off by myself and having a silly crazy dance party at Justice @ Osheaga.
Fucking fabulous year so far. A couple shows upcoming that should be a time.

I just did some math using the Souly formula and figured out that I saw 103 bands this year. Then I did some more math using the Burrito theorem and figured out that Goldbeard financially and spiritually supported about 20% of them. What a fucking guy. Can we get a round of applause for all the magical magnificence that the Goldbeard has bestowed upon us all this year? It is certainly well deserved.
Pulp @ Coachella Dre/Snoop/every rap artist on earth, alive or dead @ Coachella GY!BE @ Coachella Armin van Buuren @ Freaknight Feed Me @ Sasquatch Wolfgang Gartner @ Sasquatch Dan Deacon @ Neptune Theater Girl Talk @ Sasquatch Blind Pilot @ Sasquatch Cloud Cult @ Sasquatch M83 @ Bumbershoot James @ Neumos Sub Focus @ Coachella We Were Promised Jetpacks @ Coachella
I can't really remember any other shows I went to outside of festivals this year. I definitely didn't attend a whole lot, though. Need to change that in the '13.
