There is no comparison as Bradm has seen an unbelievably impressive list (in both quantity and quality- V5 2x WTF??) of shows this year, my list was far less complete than it appears. More than a few bands on that list performed at festivals I attended, and of course set overlays, direct conflicts etc were impossible to avoid. My list is actual bands seen, and the criteria for that in my mind as I made my list was a minimum of 30 minutes of music. If I had not come up with that rule and not been on the ball and ready to move along- the list would be far shorter.

WHERE'S TIMMY B'S LIST???? WOULD LOVE TO SEE THAT!

I would love to also see that. Alas I need to study for my upcoming exam which happens on Thursday then I will take the time to figure out how many gigs and acts I have seen in 2009.

I'm guessing over 60 gigs and I have no idea how many acts.

For festivals, do you include all acts or only the ones that you saw? And on that note, is there a minimum watch time or does it matter if you heard them as opposed to saw them?

How 'bout bands you're in or sat in with?

I'd assume that bands that were openning acts and you missed them don't count either?

I would only count the acts that I saw at festivals or otherwise, not just heard from the parking lot or campgrounds.

How can you count acts that you did not see just because they were opening acts on a bill?
