Best of 2007 by Thomas Savage

Better late than never right? Still catching up on a lot of reviewing and interviewing but from the looks of it, '07 isn't that much different from '06. However the spring of 2007 can never be equaled as far as shows go. Don't know how many times I saw the Marked Men or the Black Lips in Texas only to come home to King Khan, BBQ, Jay Reatard and more Black Lips. Great year! Check out my best of 2007 list.
