My 25 Favorite Shows of 2007






















Charlie Louvin looked into my eyes as he addressed me from the stage. I was thrilled, even if I was one of only a couple dozen people in the audience at an under-promoted show at the Grand Emporium.

It was a clear personal highlight in a great year for live music in Kansas City. I'm very fortunate to have gone out to see music over 100 nights in 2007. Counting opening acts and festival bills, I attended over 400 individual performances. These are my favorite 25.

As I review this list, I'm struck by two themes. First, what's up with all the ancient musicians? Louvin (80) is joined by Ray Price (81), Etta James (69), Bob Dylan (66), Ronnie Milsap (64) and John McEuen (61). Well, at least Pinetop Perkins (94), Hubert Sumlin (76), Bill Gaither (71) and Isaac Hayes (65) didn't make the cut.

It's also worth noting that I don't particularly care for the music of every artist listed below. For example, I far prefer the Arctic Monkeys and Camera Obscura to Bowling For Soup and Kellie Pickler. The latter pair, however, gave outstanding performances, while desultory efforts by the two U.K. acts disappointed me.

I've posted links to same-concert fan footage where it's available.
