• Mass Dosage's top gigs of 2011

    In 2011 I went to 16 gigs, the lowest number since I moved to London four years ago. Am I getting more picky or just not going out as much? I like to think the former as the overall standard of what I saw last year was pretty high. Then again, organising two weddings earlier in the year plus a honyemoon might have had something to do with it too. Here there the highlights. All venues are in London, UK.

    It took a while for a good gig to come along to kick the year off, but this was it. I arrived a bit late so only got to see Rakim's last track which was a shame as he's been billed many times of late but the gigs have all been cancelled. I've seen De La quite a few times in the past but they always put on a dope show and they didn't disappoint. Seeing Talib and Mos Def together on stage was a rare treat and they dropped classic Black Star numbers as well as loads of their solo joints, very nice.
