The Leaderboard: Zack’s all-time shows

Share/Bookmark
Posted by teibs On June - 18 - 2009

graders@ZackTeibloom I’ve been grading bands for a while now. Maybe I had a past life as a teacher. Maybe I was too into The Count from Sesame Street. Maybe I just like to put numbers on things so you don’t have to decipher between my various positive adjectives.

Anyway, here’s the list. Let me be the first to admit I’m an easy grader. Take it like a school grade instead of a Pitchfork grade. Most bands pass and I give out a lot of A’s and high B’s.

It’s a living document and I’m sure I’ll update it as I see bands again (or if Andy or one of you convinces me I have a band way too high or low.) Feel free to let me know who I have ranked incorrectly and remind me of shows I forgot to list.

Without further ado:
