Next up in my blog-based Advent Calendar is a list of the best live acts I saw this year. These are really in no particular order!

Half Man Half Biscuit, The Junction, Cambridge, March 2010

The Saw Doctors, The Junction, Cambridge, November 2010


(Not the best video, and what’s worse, from a gig a few days later too, but it captures the atmosphere!)

The Unthanks, Cambridge Folk Festival, August 2010

Show Of Hands, Cambridge Folk Festival, August 2010


(The video’s from 2007, but I don’t remember this performance being that different!)
