A few of us at Grimy Goods that are constantly going to shows on the weekly, wanted to list our Top 10 Shows of 2010. There were so many amazing show experiences this year but we had to limit our list to just 10 (otherwise it would be endless … boring).  I’m sure many of you were at some of the shows listed below! Leave us a comment and let us know what were your best shows of 2010!

    Die Antwoord may in fact be a joke; I’m not going to dispute that. What is NOT disputable is that I have never seen a band KILL a performance like that. They tore the roof off that place, from start to finish.

    Either you didn’t go to the last Faith No More show in USA or you just don’t like them. It was amazing. The Gozillaz show was cool too, how often do you get to see members of Clash, Blur and VU together?

    Did none of you seriously go to Die Antwoord at the Music Box? That was not only the best show of the year, but possibly one of the best shows ever I’ve seen, ever.

    EVAR.
