It's been a stellar year for live music in the D.C. area. Two days in particular will be remembered fondly by many concert-going Washingtonians: U2 graced us with their presence on September 29 (making many forget Lady Gaga was also performing in town that same night), while Virgin Mobile FreeFest hosted an incredible lineup on August 30 at no charge to the audience. But there were plenty of other great shows this year, and Metromix concert photographer Alfredo Flores offers his take on 2009's ten best concerts based on visual spectacle, stage presence, rapport with audience and, of course, their music.

Raphael Saadiq live at 9:30 Club

A blend of 1980s classic R&B, neo-soul new school and several odes to the style of Motown-era blues, Oakland, Calif.-born Raphael Saadiq brought his smooth rhythms to the 9:30 Club. Many may remember Saadiq as a key member of the new jack swing group Tony! Toni! Tone!, which had their best years in the late-1980s to mid-1990s. And many of the crowd at the 9:30 Club surely did remember those days as they chanted for Saadiq to sing the band’s seminal hit “Anniversary.” Saadiq teased the crowd by repeatedly asking if “ya’ll ready for Anniversary?” only to go into songs from his solo career. But that’s a good thing considering his soulful hits like "Ask of You" and "Me & You," all sung passionately on stage, Saadiq often clutching the microphone, eyes closed, letting the music take over his soul.

Grammy-award winner and "Dancing with the Stars" runner-up Mya shines at Land Rover America's Cup 2009, co-founded by Tareq Salahi. Filming for a potential spot on “Housewives of D.C.” was former model Michaela Salahi, who along with husband Tareq have recently been accused of crashing last week’s White House state dinner honoring the Indian prime minister. The event also featured a special performance by Grammy-winner and feature star of the upcoming season of "Dancing with the Stars" Mya.


They Might Be Giants Play for Kids (and Grownups Later)

Always looking to expand their musical horizons, They Might Be Giants hosted a show for both kids and adults, and one just for adults at the 9:30 Club -- selling out both. They Might Be Giants’ appeal to children is easy to see and hear, with their folksy tunes about science (paleontology, evolution, astronomy, chemistry, anatomy and more), and a fun portion of the concert sung by sock puppets called "The Avatars of They."
