After spending much of November and December looking back on 2009 and then attempting to summarize not just one year but an entire decade in music, I'm looking forward to, well, looking forward.--- Some of my favorite bands are coming out with new albums in the next several months including Interpol, Spoon, Liars, Beach House and Retribution Gospel Choir. Vampire Weekend will be releasing their anticipated sophomore LP next Tuesday and will also be performing at In the Venue March 18. The gig joins an ever-growing list of cool concerts to add to your 2010 planner. Check out our music calendar to stay in the loop on appearances by Nouvelle Vague, White Denim, Midlake, The Dutchess & The Duke and much, much more. And, if you have time, let us know which concerts/albums you're most stoked to see/hear this year. Here's to making this decade one we'll be proud to review down the line.
