Best of 2020: Tim Reidy’s Top 10 shows in (and out) of Albany
Well, I did get to enough shows for this list.
The list outside of Albany is a solid number 1 at the top and goes down,and the the Albany list is not in order, and it was a bit harder to do.
Shows were not the same after the 12th of March, I was lucky enough to see enough shows this year to do my standard top 10 in Albany and outside Albany. Thanks for all of the acts that I got to see. There were some good shows before and after 12 March. For me, there were no shows from Mid March to Mid June and after November. I have seen video shows before the lockdown, and are helping me going this year.
Thanks to all venues that held shows in 2020, will hope to get back in 2021.
