It Was A Very Good Year: Joe’s Favorites of 2010

Joe Copeland

Joe Copeland is TE’s resident jack of all trades.  When he’s not busy keeping things running smoothly in the office, posting concert fliers around town, or managing the many goings on at a show, you might catch him fetching a hard-to-find treat to satisfy the demands of our artists’ riders (more on that later this week).

He is the latest True Endeavors staffer to submit his picks for the best music of 2010.  Read on to check out what music caught Joe’s ear in 2010.
