Best of 2008-Concert Moments (Part 4)

The Swimmers
Thursday March 6, 2008
Garfield Artworks
One of my all-time favorite bands is still the now defunct One Star Hotel. Steve and his crew soldier on and promise to play a OSH tune for me next time they roll through town.

'The Bleeding Heart Show'
The New Pornographers
Saturday April 12, 2008
Carnegie Music Hall
I just got into this band last year and they swing through town on the last leg of their tour. Neko bailed out on the tour a few days after this show. Despite taking place in the worst venue in town, this show had the bonus of having Okkervil River opening.

Kathleen Edwards
Tuesday April 8, 2008
The Rex Theater
My favorite record of the year. I actually saw her twice that day. I caught her WYEP studio session in the afternoon before the show proper.

'I Dig A Pony'
St. Vincent
Monday February 25. 2008
The Andy Warhol Museum
This show was a total surprise. I didn't have her record but she was very good live.
