this week: 13 artists/bands you must see live before you die.

1. Bob Dylan (in this case, it’s more likely to be before he dies)

2. U2 (they need to put out a freakin’ album so they can tour for it)

3. Wilco.

4. Patty Griffin.

5. Sufjan Stevens.

6. Bruce Springsteen (preferably with the E Street Band).

7. The Frames.

8. The Decemberists.

9. Over the Rhine.

10. Feist.

11. Waterdeep (if they ever start touring again).

12. The Flaming Lips.

13. Ben Folds.
