Fishpork’s 10 Favorite Shows of 2011

While 2010 may have been the year we got to see Jeff Mangum play five songs, who would have thought we’d get to see three full Mangum sets in 2011?! It’s hard to compare that experience even in a year that was loaded with unforgettable performances. We were also lucky to catch James Murphy bid farewell to LCD Soundsystem, Tapes N’ Tapes proved why they are one of the best live bands on the planet, and Portishead blew the roof off of Asbury’s Convention Hall twice in ATP headlining performances. ATP recently announced that it will be returning to Asbury Park next year for another round of I’ll Be Your Mirror Performances, a guarantee that 2012 will have much live music to look forward to. Until then, here is our very biased list of favorite shows of 2011:

1. Jeff Mangum @ Paramount Theater

2. LCD Soundsystem @ Terminal 5

3. Portishead @ Convention Hall

4. Tapes N’ Tapes @ Johnny Brenda’s

5. Deerhunter @ Webster Hall

6. Avey Tare @ Johnny Brenda’s

7. Shellac @ Convention Hall

8. Black Moth Super Rainbow @ First Unitarian Church

9. Amon Tobin @ Brooklyn’s Masonic Temple

10. Elephant 6 Holiday Surprise @ Knitting Factory
