As a rule, I never miss an opportunity to catch a performance by prolific garage rocker and rock ‘n’ roll slave Ty Segall. This time around, he paid a visit to Ottobar in Baltimore with fellow musical genius and American musician/singer-songwriter Tim Presley aka White Fence.

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.
As we are nearing 2018’s finale, I have to say that this past year brought with it some of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time. From the big production shows in large theaters to completely packed club shows, there was an intensity to most of the performances this past year that I’ll remember for years to come! Here are my 10 best shows of the year.
