Wire (1976)
Big Country (1981)
Dick Dale (1959)

My Bloody Valentine (1983)
Flamin' Groovies (1965)
Goblin (1972)
Queens of the Stone Age (1996) (members of Kyuss (1987))

Here are some bands I had the chance to see in 2013 but I didn't end up going:

New Order (1980)
The Breeders (1990)
Dinosaur Jr. (1984)
Simple Minds (1977)
Black Sabbath (1968)
The Feelies (1976)
The English Beat (1978)
Monster Magnet (1989)
The Flaming Lips (1983)
The Rolling Stones (1962)
Paul McCartney (1957)
The Psychedelic Furs (1977)
The Zombies (1962)
Yo La Tengo (1984)
Belle and Sebastian (1996)
The Orb (1988)
Elton John (1964)

In other words, I saw tons and tons of 40-somethings, 50-somethings, 60-somethings, and even 70-somethings!  This was the year of the old fogies.

I did see some good younger bands too: Tame Impala, Metz, Junip, MGMT.  But I'm definitely feeling out of touch with what cool music the kids are making these days.  Any pointers?
