A favorite thing about 2022 was being able to see live music again!

Some favorite shows included Ryley Walker, Kate Bollinger, Films on Song (all at the Southern), Mdou Moctar, Stereolab (both at the Jefferson), Eugene Chadbourne, Josephine Network (both at the Bridge PAI), New Boss, Jean Jeanies (both at the WTJU Stage), Uncle Dave Lewis & Friends (at Prints, Platters & Pints), and Patrick Shiroishi + Che Chen + Alex Zhang Hungtai, periodandthequestionmarks, and Dais Queue (single show at Visible Records).
