2013 has been a good year for live music. At least it has been great for me. I have been to fourteen festivals, I have seen somewhere between 150 and 200 concerts this year, and I have enjoyed most of them. For some of them I have seen only part of it, but many I have seen the whole concert. Here are 15 of my best 30 concert experiences this year. (Picture above: the audience at Kvelertak’s concert at the Slottsfjell festival)
Natalie Maines is known as the main vocal of the highly successful trio The Dixie Chicks. Now she has made a solo CD, Mother, from which she presented some of the songs at a concert at the ACL Moody’s during SXSW.
