Each year I start this post off with something to the effect of, “I did not see nearly as many shows as last year”, and I have a hard time not saying the same thing this time. However, if I really allow myself to think, I remember I got to go to four great festivals this year (Lollapalooza, Monolith, Forecastle, MidPoint) and saw loads of great shows in those weekends alone.

I am also making way for Dave this year on the favorite concerts list, he has done several excellent reviews for us here at ENS this year, and I think you will enjoy his list as well. Feel free to leave your own favorites in the comments section.

So, without further do, here are my favorite concerts of 2008.

#11 – Liam Finn @ Monolith Music Festival (WOXY.com Stage)
#10 – Explosions In The Sky @ Lollapalooza

Explosions was worth the wait though, as they took the stage with a Texas flag hanging from an amp and mentioned that “without fans like you, we would not be here”

#9 – Pomegranates @ MidPoint Music Festival
#8 – Okkervil River @ Mad Hatter

After a great set of songs from The Stage Names, Black Sheep Boy and more, Will and Charles treated us to a re-interpretation of a song from Down The River Of Golden Dreams, “It Ends With A Fall.”

#7 – Band Of Horses / Catfish Haven / Cass McCombs @ Halfway To Forecastle

Ben and company launched into all the good tunes you would expect from both Everything All The Time and Cease To Begin. I cannot think of a tune that I was hoping to hear that did not get played.

#6 – Radiohead @ Lollapalooza

What ensued was a brilliant 2 hour performance that plucked gems from every Radiohead album (save Pablo Honey) and included favorites of mine like “Airbag”, “The Bends”, “Everything In It’s Right Place”, “Weird Fishes/ Arpeggi”, “15 Step” “I Might Be Wrong” and more that I lost track of quickly.

#5 – Grizzly Bear @ MusicNow Cincinnati

A band I was already impressed with earned a few extra points for me during this live performance, possibly the best individual performance of the entire festival.

#4 – TV On The Radio @ Monolith Music Festival
#3 – Foals @ Lollapalooza

It was certainly one of those sets that smack everyone upside the head and as I predicted, several people walked away saying “that was great, who were those guys”?

#2 – Bon Iver @ Southgate House

Without getting too silly here, his guitar solo on Blindsided shocked the hell outta me, I mean, for a minute there, the man seemed to morph into Santana or something, really a jawdropper.

#1 – Wilco @ Lollapalooza

The band came out on stage wearing brand new custom tailored sequins suits, colorful and shiny. Jeff claimed that the had been “doing a lot of sewing to get ready for this show” and they broke into a brilliant 90 minute set.

Dave’s Top 10 Concerts Of 2008

10. Mike Gordon/Freekbass – Cleveland – Beachland Ballroom – September 5
9. Girl Talk – Cincinnati – Bogart’s – November 9
8. Animal Collective – Jersey City – All Points West Festival – August 9

7. Elephant 6 Collective – Columbus – Wexner Center – October 19

Mangum’s voice is absolutely as amazing live as it is on record, and sounded even more vulnerable and beautiful live.

6. Josh Ritter – Bellbrook, OH – Bellbrook Jamboree – May 16
5. Yeasayer/Man Man – Columbus – Wexner Center – April 15
4. Bruce Springsteen – Cincinnati – US Bank Arena – March 22
3. Radiohead – Noblesville, IN – Deer Creek – August 3
2. My Morning Jacket – Louisville – Waterfront Park – August 16
1. Trey Anastasio Band – Brooklyn – Music Hall of Williamsburg – August 7

 Each Note Secures Favorite Concerts Of 2008


Joe started ENS in 2003 after most people he wanted to talk to about music were worn thin by his ramblings. The outlet this site provided helped out, and somehow is still going 9 years later. After a four year stint as a WOXY DJ, Joe returned to Cincinnati and continues to pioneer ENS. In addition to the overall look and feel of the site, Joe provides regular reviews, and kinda makes sure this whole thing stays afloat.
