10 Years | 10 Shows in Brooklyn

Today marks ten years since I became a resident of Brooklyn and even though this blog started when I moved to Manhattan in 2006, this still feels like a monumental time in my life. Sharing new music and talking about the live music scene in New York has been one of my favorite hobbies for over a decade and had brought me such a strong connection to my community. Writing about live music halted for me (and everyone else) in March and, I'll admit it, posting a list of my favorite shows feels a bit strange. However, as Lana Del Ray said, "I miss New York and I miss the music. Me and my friends, we miss rock and roll. I want shit to feel just like it used to." The disappearance of live music has been extremely tough for me over the past few months and thinking about a concert-less future can at times seem unbearably depressing. While I recognize that is very much a first world problem, the impacts on my mental health feel real. Nothing could turn around a bad day like seeing live music. The world is changing drastically, but I still hold on to these memories and will cherish them all forever. Here are ten shows from the past ten years that all happened in the borough I now call home.
