Jason Lane’s Top 10 Local Concerts of 2010

We love lists here, we’re thinking about doing more as time progresses. While it looks like we may have missed our opportunity to make any Best Of… lists, thankfully we have local blogger and music aficionado Jason Lane to lean back on. Here’s his list of Top 10 Local Concerts of 2010!

What a year for local concerts around Kelowna!  The Breakout West festival was a highlight for many people I’ve been talking to in the last few months, and many great shows passed through town and made stops at the live music venues here in Kelowna.

I started this in 2007, and continued in 2008 and 2009, so here’s a look at some of my favourite shows from right here in Kelowna.
