the 25 best concerts 2015 according to Hallgeir

It’s time to look back at the concerts I attended in 2015. I saw 59 shows, these 25 are my favourites. Rayland Baxter, Undergrünnen and, especially, Lydia Loveless were the biggest pleasant surprises.

The biggest dissapointment was Calexico, I love the band, really like the last album, but they did not play to their full potential on the concert I saw (hell, they were boring, and that’s the worst I can say about a show). …but I will buy a ticket the next time they come visiting.

Anyway, these are the 25 best concerts of 2015:
