Dave Gahan
Killing Joke - even though I haven't seen them yet

There, that means nothing to no one here. Except for Dave Gahan perhaps.

ok time for a stab at this. I just looked at the file I keep of all the shows I have gone to.

This is going to be tough.

1. Radiohead - 8/20/03 - Merriweather Post Pavilion - Columbia, MD
2. Idlewild - 5/21/03 - Mercury Lounge - NYC
3. Pearl Jam - 7/1/03 - Nissan Pavilion - Manassas, VA
4. Coldplay - 03/02/03 - A.J. Palumbo Theatre - Pittsburgh, PA
5. Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals - 6/22/03 - Bull Run Park - Centerville, VA

I am not sure if this list is right or not. Here are some shows that I have no idea how they are not in my top 5 of the year. Each was amazing and on any given day could be in my top 5.

- Idlewild - 7/16/03 - The 9:30 Club - Washington, DC
- The Polyphonic Spree - 6/10/03 - 9:30 Club - Washington, DC
- The Delgados - 04/21/03 - The Black Cat - Washington, DC
- Jesse Malin - 05/8/03 - Iota Club & Cafe - Arlington, VA
- Pete Yorn and Grandaddy - 05/13/03 - The 9:30 Club - Washington, DC
- Gemma Hayes - 06/08/03 - Iota Club & Cafe Arlington, VA

This was hard to pick. Plus the few I have upcoming are going to be amazing.

* edit
how the hell is idlewild at the 9:30 club not #3. How could I think about leaving PJ out of the top 5?
