Well I had a huge test yesterday, and for awhile there it looked like we weren’t going to go to Lollapalooza at all… but I sucked it up and we were able to make it for just one day, and that day was Saturday. Me and Kristin headed up Friday night after work/school and drove back Sunday morning, and I studied the whole way. In between, though, we heard some pretty amazing music. Click on for the rundown:

That’s right. Tonight’s the night. The night we’ve all been waiting for. Oh man oh man. It’s actually ridiculous how excited I am for this. I’d be lying if I said I’ve been thinking of anything but this for like 2 weeks. Because I haven’t.

Well it’s that time again. It’s been a good year in music for sure – so much so that we’ve bumped our list up to 25 albums this time around, and even then we were having to painfully cut out some clearly great records.
Remember, this list represents our favorite albums of the year, not necessarily the best albums of the year. If we had to pick what we thought were the very best albums critically, this would probably be a very different list. But we’re no critics, so that’s not what we’re going to do. These are simply our very favorite albums of the year – the ones that made us laugh, cry, dance, smile, press repeat, wet our pants, etc. This is what we’ll remember when we look back on 2009.
Here we go:

So it’s a couple weeks late, and it covers some stuff we’ve been listening to over the last 3-4 months. But we’re still counting it for October, and I’m sure you’ll still like it! I swear!
