2002 In Review: Readers’ Memorable Live Shows

All told we received more than 150 essays from readers on their favorite shows of the year. We ultimately selected twenty of them to run. Some we liked the account, some we liked the selection. Bonnaroo and Widespread Panic tended to elicit the most powerful essays, and so there are a preponderance of them below (and there's a marriage proposal story in there as well) In random order here they are…

I’m down with the kilt for sure. I have a friend who now wears a LOIN CLOTH and the kilt was a gawetay garment to that, so there is that (not that a loin cloth is bad .it’s just very loin clothy and kind of hard to get used to hanging out with someone who is wearing one.)
