Editor’s Note: This year, we asked our bloggers to name their Top 10 shows of 2018 or choose their Top 10 photos of the year. We will run them over the course of mid-December as our Best of the Year posts.
Kyle Gustafson provided us his Top 10 concerts of the year — most of which he shot personally! Check out Kyle’s Top 10 shows.

For two nights at The Anthem, The Jesus and Mary Chain opened Nine Inch Nails, and the Scottish noise poppers led by Jim and William Reid were at the top of their game!

Nine Inch Nails, the ambitious industrial project of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, has awoken! In June, NIN released Bad Witch, the final volume in a trilogy that began with 2016’s Not The Actual Events and 2017’s Add Violence. NIN scheduled two nights for The Anthem, and the first sold out, but tickets remain for their show on Wednesday, Oct. 10.
