This is installment #3 in “My Year in Lists.” Check back every day for a new list!

I feel extremely fortunate to be going to school in Austin. I have access to one of the most fertile music scenes in the United States, and the overall atmosphere is something I have found in few other places. 2009 saw me go to a lot of shows, and every one of them was a blast. I hope to continue going to this many shows every year for a long time to come. Here is a photo recap of every show I went to this year. (Please Note: For some of the shows, I was unaware of the venues camera policies or I simply my camera. Therefore, I have used some promotional photos for these instances.)
