Top 10 Shows of 2014: Mathew Zuniga

By Mathew Zuniga

This year has been good to me, music wise. I attended about 15 shows this year, but these are my personal favorites.

1. mewithoutYou’s “Catch For Us The Foxes,” 10-Year Anniversary Tour
Low on the list because the vocals could not be heard in the front.

2. Relient K’s “MMHMM,” 10-Year Anniversary Tour
One of my favorite albums of all time, but I wish the crowd would have been more into it.

10. MxPx Tour
MxPx is the band that got me into punk. I had such high hopes and they surpassed them. In a tiny, hot, sweaty venue I learned the true meaning of punk.
