Unfortunately I didn’t go to that many concerts that I was used too the years before… I’m living in the wrong city for good concerts - seriously, even Gerolstein had better concerts some time ago…
The best ones:
Against me! @Riez Open Air, Bausendorf
La Dispute + Title Fight @Stollwerck, Cologne
Frau Potz + Love A @Bla, Bonn
Enter Shikari @LMH, Cologne
Fjort @Aetherblissement, Cologne
Pianos become the teeth + Verse @Riez Open Air (not their fault, wrong place, wrong time)
Jupiter Jones @Gloria, Cologne
I regret the most, that I did NOT go to:
Pianos become the teeth @Underground K
Circle Takes The Square + Kylesa @Turbinenhalle OH
Norma Jean + The Chariot @Essigfabrik K
Converge + Touché amoré @Essigfabrik K

Michigan’s band La Dispute just released their new longplay record “Wildlife”. After several listens I think it’s one of the best albums of the year 2011. There is no other band with such an authentic atmosphere while their singer is doing his own characteristic mixture of talking and shouting within all moods from desparation to anger.
Everyone who is into genres of punk/hardcore/screamo/indie who doesn’t know this band should totally give them a listen! The intro is leading into the atmosphere of the album and my favourite songs are interestingly all the tracks with odd numbers and especially King Park as a seven-minute-masterpiece!
