MVM’s Editor saw 130 gigs last year. Who made his list of the best ones?! This is 20-11

Honestly the toughest thing I have to write all year is these lists. 

There’s bound to be something I miss out, there’s bound to be someone I upset, but I love gigs – Maximum Volume started as a gig reviews site back in 2010 (in another form with another name) and as of yesterday – when I compiled this list – this is the order.

Sorry to everyone I missed out – I only saw three bad shows this year. One, a band mimed and the other two were big bands who disappointed.

So if you aren’t here, I am sorry, but I still enjoyed your show.

10-1 tomorrow.

Andy
