hands down, for me it was the band who opened for RMB in Boston, night 2, Lake Street Dive
Just a really tight, funky band whose energy is off the charts :dance:
Ken, are you paying attention?!?!?!?!?! :wink:









they have it all: funk, jive, twang, soul and good old fashioned rock n roll :dance:
Ken, they would REALLY help fill the chick rock deficit that GOTV suffers from... :wink:
never mind the hole they would rip in the green stage! :Phishfolk:

The only thing better than an upright bass is a chick playing an upright bass! :gregoir:

Probably the most pleasant musical surprise I had was seeing the Avett Brothers at Vibes. I had never even heard of them... then Gotroot started talking them up so I got curious. Ended up really enjoying their set & have since picked up some of their stuff from Amazon.

2012 was a really slow year for me as far as going to shows.

I can't even think of a band that blew me away last year.

I'm going to have to make up for this in 2013

who they really tricked was the sound crew :lol:

Basically they left all their instruments on in feedback loops and the crew had to go around on stage and manually shut off every single amplifier/instrument until they got it to stop... craziness... :pimp:

Great thread, Royal! I agree with you @ 2 Lake Dive band -- heard theming WFUV & was blown away...

My "new" band is actually "old" ~ The Rascals !!!
"How Can I Be Sure" was in my head for 2 weeks after seeing them @ The Capitol , and I had no problem with that...
