Music, Concerts and Theatre of 2016

I saw 17 live performances this year. Two of them were musicals, two were theatre and the other 13 were concerts. My favorite concert this year was Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes. It absolutely rocked.


No overview of my musical journey of 2016 would be complete without an honorable mention to Lin-Manuel Miranda, who completely changed my life with Hamilton: An American Musical.

David Bowie’s last album, Blackstar, came out this year. I haven’t been able to listen to it yet. I’m really eager to listen to Beyonce’s Lemonade, as I know it caused quite a stir. Unfortunately for Beyonce, I’ve been way too busy fangirling over Kevin Rowland.

My favorite album of the year with absolutely no competition is The Dexy’s newest: Let The Record Show: Dexys Do Irish And Country Soul. It’s incredibly beautiful. I have no words.
