Y for Year's best concerts

Posted By on Thu, Dec 23, 2010 at 12:15 PM

Robert Plant at Robinson

This year had more great concerts than our amp-addled heads can recall, so in the name of brevity, here's a quick rundown (in no particular order) of what still stands out at year's end: Lil Wayne's menacing rap bravado at Verizon Arena; Ho-Hum's one-night stand at Vino's 20th anniversary; Robert Plant, with a voice undiminished by the years, and the Band of Joy putting on a clinic at Robinson Center Music Hall; a top-notch Times New Viking using its one date between tours with Pavement and Guided by Voices to rock White Water Tavern; John Prine calmly proving why he's a living legend at Robinson Center Music Hall; ghoul-punk god Danzig's Halloween-time rager at The Village; Loudon Wainwright III, self-deprecating as ever, at The Aud in Eureka Springs; Titus Andronicus' punk history lesson at Revolution; one of Brooks & Dunn's final shows at Verizon Arena; Drive-By Truckers' "lights-out" set at Revolution; Xiu Xiu weirding out the capacity crowd at Sticky Fingerz; Old 97s' powering return to Little Rock at Revolution; The Body destroying Juanita's P.A. in no more than 20 minutes; Lightning Bolt's stunning avant-punk set at ACAC and the innumerable shows from local and area bands which prove, time and time again, that Arkansas is filled with talent.

    John Romulus Brinkley is one of Arkansas's greatest frauds, famed for his claim, fatal for some, that surgery to implant goat glands into testicles would restore virility. Thanks to the upcoming movie "Charlatan," we might get to see Matt Damon handling goat gonads, birthmoviesdeath.com reports.
