Best live show of 2010: tie between Thee Oh Sees at The Bug Jar in Rochester, NY (so sweaty), and William Basinski at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, NY (so gorgeous).

Best band I discovered in 2010: Zelienople, hands down.

Best albums not from 2010 that I discovered/came around to in 2010:
DJ Sprinkles - Midtown 120 Blues
Gillian Welch - Time (The Revelator)
Loscil - Submers
Sam Amidon - All Is Well - the sound of working long hours in a cagey stock room, avoiding mice and moving boxes of cereal.
burger/ink - Las Vegas - the sound of sitting on my bed drinking hot chocolate and watching the huge Rochester snowflakes fly around.
Zelienople - His/Hers
Gastr Del Sol - Upgrade & Afterlife
Lambchop - OH (Ohio)
The For Carnation - The For Carnation - the sound of me trying to keep myself awake late at night while I sat watch over a small wooden cabin full of pre-adolescents
The Gray Field Recordings - Hypnagogia - the sound of evenings walking around the woods by myself when I didn't have to look after said pre-adolescents
Actress - Hazyville
Elizabeth Cotten - Freight Train and Other North Carolina Folk Songs and Tunes
Alan Licht - Plays Well

Best musical moment of 2010: Playing my first show at a crowded basement show in upstate New York, getting to yell in front of a crowd, and getting the whole crowd to sing "bright little balls flying all around, people covered with welts as they lay on the ground, and while it all was happening I stayed on my bed, I sat and watched it all" along with me while I yelled in front of them.
