Top 10 Roxy Shows of The Year

Since shows are what we do best, we figured we wouldn’t waste our time on other end of the year lists for records of the year or every single question that we ask on Facebook & Twitter each day. Although maybe that should be a blog post in itself? Hmm… Anyway! 2011 was such an incredible year for The Roxy. From our first 2-day music event at SXSW, to secret shows with the biggest bands in the world, to multiple panels, to countless sold-out shows, to CMJ, to The Roxy Lounge in Scottsdale, to our very own beer, to Van Halen…we’ve had a big year. Of all the things we do, the shows are what you know us for the best. Of the 300+ days we were open this year, you can imagine it was a little difficult to narrow it down. We asked the crew, the votes came in and here are our Top 10 Shows of the Year:
