2010 reviewed

Seeing as I haven't posted since April(!), I decided that I would start the new year by recapping the shows I saw, remembered and liked in 2010. I'm not reviewing or commenting on the shows, I will just create a list. I just wish to document those shows and artists I enjoyed seeing, and, clean the slate in the event I continue to blog in 2011.
