10 Best Local Shows of 2008

We’re restricting this list to Louisville & Lexington shows only, because we’ve also seen some incredible shows outside of the immediate area including Dan Deacon, Kate Nash, Crystal Castles, Why & The National (that was my sneaky way of sneaking them into this list by the way).  Also, keep in mind that we didn’t make it to every show, although we came pretty close.  Nevertheless, we’ve had some incredible shows this year in town & this is our recap…click-through for a synopsis of each show…

Girl Talk @ Headliners – 11/7

Sharon Jones @ Headliners – 2/1

George Clinton @ Waterfront Park – 7/14

VHS or Beta @ Waterfront Park – 8/27

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy @ Funtown – 7/26

Man Man @ Headliners – 3/20

Thao with the Get Down Stay Down @ Skull Alley – 7/21

Mono @ Mellwood Arts Center – 6/21

My Morning Jacket @ Waterfront Park – 8/16

Elephant 6 Collective Holiday Surprise @ Red Mile – 10/23

  2. As I was preparing to post this and we were listening to Talking Heads on vinyl, I told Nick that the one Louisville show of the year I regret missing is the David Byrne show
