Favorite Concerts of 2012

Today I continue to look back over the year in music as it comes to a close. It’s been another great year in the Philly music scene, with great shows nearly every day from local and out-of-town talent. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing just around 100 shows this year, so I’ve picked the best 20 of the year. Check out the list below (click the linked date for review, photos, etc.).
