greg C's Top Twenty Favorite Shows Of 2011

2011 was certainly an amazing year for live music in New York City. Having photographed over 80 great concerts it wasn't easy narrowing this list down to just twenty shows. The final twenty were all so good it became impossible to list them in favorite order so I took the easy way out and did them chronologically. I've provided hyperlinks to the complete set of photos by each band.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I did photographing them.
