This year trumped recent ones for killer concerts in town, featuring ridiculous showmanship to extremes (like "Weird Al," Culture Club and the Rolling Stones), compelling local stories (My Hotel Year reuniting, You Blew It! rocking a Park Ave CDs in-store, Solillaquists back on stage with Sage Francis, Moon Jelly's stunning return at the In-Between Series) and amazing critical darlings old and new that found their way here (Deafheaven, Failure, Metz, Meat Puppets). These concerts, in reverse date order, belong in cherished mental annals that don't need Facebook's asinine "On This Day" tool to recall.
