Top Gigs, Tracks and Albums for 2013.

Asho from Footstomp has challenged a bunch of Brisbane managers to come up with top ten lists – he loves them and the challenge definitely got me thinking. Here’s my Top 10 Lists from 2013. Though they are numbered, I kind of feel like these are almost all on par and in no REAL order.
