Year in Music 2013

Happy New Year. Here's my annual rundown of the highlights of the shows I attended in 2013. Being in Northern California for 4 months put a bit of a damper on my live music excursions, but I hope to remedy that by going to some shows in San Francisco in 2014. I'll be back in Austin for good in June. Even with the light show attendance, I did get to see some favorites: Wilco, Okkervil River, The National and, of course, Old 97's. I didn't miss SXSW or ACL, and both those festivals provided the opportunity to take in a range of great acts. I saw legends like Paul McCartney, Depeche Mode and the Cure, too.

At this time of the year, I always like to go back to watch these end of year videos I have been doing since 2008. It reminds me what a lucky girl I have been to have seen so many great artists over the years. If you have some extra time...
