From KCRW Presents Coordinator Mary Chellamy:

This is not just another ‘Top 10 Albums of 2012′ list. Nope, it’s a combo list! Top 10 Albums + Top 10 Live Performances of 2012.

As the keeper of the KCRW Presents calendar and ticket giveaways program, I see A LOT of shows.  So here are my favorite albums coupled with their live performances from this past year.
