Rocktoberfest 2010: Vampire Weekend, MGMT, Phoenix, LCD Soundsystem and more hit Florida





October has arrived, and it's bringing with it all those Hip October Concerts we've been promising for months now: The Gaslight Anthem (above), Yeasayer, LCD Soundsystem, The National, Vampire Weekend, Flaming Lips, Matt and Kim, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Phoenix, MGMT and more are coming to Tampa Bay and Orlando.

In honor of this momentous influx of nationally respected indie rock bands coming to Tampa Bay, we've put together this handy guide to all the best shows coming to Central Florida.

The funny thing is, for the past few months, music fans in Tampa Bay have been talking about these shows -- and everyone's got their the one show they're dying to see. We know people who are super-psyched about Yeasayer, and others who can't believe MGMT is coming to town. We know fans who will be camping out early for Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, and others who bought tickets to Vampire Weekend the day they went onsale.

So here's our question: Which of these 10 October concerts are you most pumped for? If it's someone else, check "other" and leave your answer in the comments.
