my annual favouritest list – 2007 edition

i know that chumptastic has pretty much lost whatever relevancy it once had, but since i’m the kind of person who enjoys making lists, i figured i would do so even if i’m the only one who ends up reading it. for the first time ever, i didn’t attend enough live shows to include a favourites list, which is kind of shocking considering i went to something like 53 only a couple years ago. anyway, on with the lists:
