Top 10 Live Videos Of 2013

I do my best to bring some sort of A/V quality whenever I review shows for the site. I tend to record one song per show that I go to, assuming that it’s ok with security. That means that I did NOT record anything when I saw Prince at City Winery-he is not down with people recording at his concerts. It definitely helps get the word out about local talent that people may not have heard, and for the bigger shows its just fun to let people who couldn’t make it get a glimpse of what it was like. These are my ten favorites from 2013, a mix of local and national acts. If you enjoy them, you can check out the rest of my videos on my Youtube page.
