Have no doubt about it, Jen Taylor know how to rock. As OutInCanberra's resident music critic, it's odd not to find her out a few nights a week taking in the sweetest sounds in Canberra's live music scene. We asked Jen what here favourite moments were for 2014 - not necessarily the best gigs, but those moments - sometimes fleeting - where the moment becomes magical. You can read the first half of her list here. So, in her own words, here are Jen's Top Ten for 2014.
