Best of 2010: Photos of Shows and Concerts

I was somewhat hesitant on doing this list.
But I was like heck with it and list down my favorite shows of 2010.
Going through the photos I’ve taken in 2010.
I made a list of my Top 20 favorite shows in and out of Ottawa.
Enjoy the photos.
Please comment if you feel a show was missing.

  1. Caribou and Toro Y Moi at Babylon Nightclub
  2. The first of two shows Caribou did in 2010. The show on May 4, 2010 was fun and crazy and having Toro Y Moi made it so amazing!

  7. The Depreciation Guild at Il Motore/You Say Party! at La Sala Rossa
