No single favorite. I can't think of a genre (except bagpipes) in which I don't enjoy at least one practitioner. I adore Leonard Cohen, Robert Johnson, Public Enemy, Tori Amos, early Aerosmith, Meow Meow, Iris Dement, James Brown, Cesaria Evora....
I don't have one. The last local act I saw that I loved was "What time is it Mr. Fox." Other local acts I've seen recently that I loved were Lori McKenna, the Dresden Dolls and Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band and Jaggery.
I like to see and support smaller acts in smaller venues when I can find the time. I'm always interested in learning about new performers.
