Our List of Miami's Best Concerts of 2010

Maybe you're the kind of high-minded individual who enjoys the occasional night out at the opera. Or maybe you spend every Saturday night losing your mind to murder thrash in an abandoned Coconut Grove bomb shelter. Either way, you've probably put together your very own Ten Greatest Moments in Live Music.

So did we! And while our list generally avoids both opera and murder thrash, there's still a little something for everybody. We got pop and and rock and rap and R&B and indie dance and metal and a ton of other stuff.

See the cut for the full list. And sneak a peek regularly 'cause we'll be posting new entries several times per day.
