Wolfmother are total trash, but Lenny and the Cranberries would've been win.

I'm off to see Sublime With Rome next week. Although they can't really be called Sublime With... any more, since the only original member now is Eric. I'm petitioning a name change to Eric Plus Two.

Then I'm off to see Frank Turner on May 13. And maybe May 12, too, if I can be arsed flying down to Sydney and back for the extra show. We'll see.

seen Kravits live before. never cared that much for him. he's the kind of guy you want to punch in the face when you see him. and when you're going to a concert, you're seeing him...

saw Frank Turner yesteday. was a pretty good show. a sold out gig with a pretty dedicated group of fans. 1500 people singing Eulogy when he entered the stage was a goosbumps moment. the fact that the venue was an old church added to the great atmosphere

Going to see Alison Kraus and Union Station this weekend with the wife, looking forward to it. Then Iron Maiden in August (wife has no interest in that one) and then Rush in November (also alone, women don't like Rush, its always a total sausage-fest).

Streetlight Manifesto will be in town come early July, but they are part of one of those multi-band mega tours that charge way more money for tickets than I can afford. Since I have no real interest in seeing those other bands, I will be skipping this one and hoping that SM comes back my way later... just without all of those other bands to up the prices.

Frank Turner will be coming back to town in September and look to be booked in a much larger venue this time. Thank the lord for that. The place we were tucked into last time around was so f**king tiny it was hard to breathe. Now I just need to find someone to go with because Mal is dodgy when it comes to crowds and her taste in music sucks.

Also, Florence and the Machine will be in town this October and I definitely don't want to miss that.

Saw Iron Maiden last night, was pretty awesome if you like that sort of thing. My only issue was that they were recreating in part a previous tour's setlist, and I'm not a huge fan of some of the songs which are from what I consider to be some of their more inferior years.

But anyway, it was good, I enjoyed it.

Going to see Streetlight Manifesto next month!

Don't usually go to gigs anymore (down to about one a year, these days), so I'm pretty psyched.

Saw Rush last night. Pretty awesome. Not as good as their last tour, but pretty awesome nonetheless.

The country station here gives away a whole lot of free up close concert tickets so a few Weeks ago I went and saw someone names kelleigh bannon and next month I have tickets for uncle kracker and randy hauser. Not who I'd buy tickets for but I'll watch any concert for free.

Off to see Descendents/Bounding Souls/Bodyjar/Disables tonight. Then it's Smith Street Band Thursday night, followed by Smith Street Band Friday night, followed by Smith Street Band Saturday night. Fun times.

Saw Smith Street Band and Bomb the Music Industry! last night. Both were great but the venue was f**king shithouse. Promoters didn't account for the pull of SSB's rising popularity coupled with BTMI's final Aussie tour, and so this tiny sardine can of a venue ended up packed beyond capacity. It wound up a dangerous hotbox of sweating, claustrophobic and frustrated punters. Had better times.
