Best reasons to leave your house in 2005

With 2005's best concerts still looming large in the rearview mirror, I'm already prepping my 2006 list. (An Archers of Loaf reunion at the 400 Bar?!?) Here, in chronological order, are my top 10 favorite shows by out-of-towners. I'm predisposed to the indie rock, so feel free to throw your own suggestions in the comments.


Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings - 400 Bar Menomena - 7th St. Entry Stars - 400 Bar Weezer - First Avenue The Hold Steady - Grand Old Day Eels - Pantages Theater U2 - Target Center The Arcade Fire - First Avenue M.I.A. - Fine Line Music Cafe Metric - Quest Ascot Room
