the only album i loved this year that was released this year was the eraser by thom york.

the only two concerts i saw were dave matthews band and tom petty and the heartbreakers at alltel pavilion in raleigh. i also saw some carbon leaf shows but they were only subpar because apparently now they're known nationally and refuse to jam.

things to look forward to in 2007:

--new albums by radiohead, sigur ros, and r.e.m.

--blue man group at rbc center
