Best Gig

The Savages are simply the best band around.

Best new band

A pretty strong month. Goat Girl, Happy Meals, Savoy Motel, and Moses were really good. I think simply for the quality of their live performance, I’ll give it to Happy Meals Ltd.

Best photo

I love my Savages set, taken with a pocket camera, there’s some really effective photos. It was tempting to select the whole set! But I’ve decided to select this photo instead. I like the way it’s a glimpse of the drummer.
