Went up to Auckland to see the National at Villar Maria winery.

Support act was Tiny Ruins (who I didn't realise are now a proper band not just a pseudonym). Pretty good.

The National were excellent - I'm not a massive fan of them, but they really kicked arse from start to finish.

Slight down note to the evening when, in the cab home at the end of the night my wife realised she didn't have her wedding ring on - cue us both shitting our pants about having to claim insurance as we'd forgot to update the amount it was insured for when it was remade (long story) so it would have cost us about $3K to replace even with insurance.

Woke up early the next morning and went back to try our luck finding it, even rented a metal detector. My wife's friend found it after 10 minutes searching! Legendary finish to a great weekend.

Going to head to Melissa Etheridge and Sheryl Crow in April.

Wanted to go to Auckland City Limits but had to back out. Gutted.

The National songs I like, I really like, but I struggle with the singer who never gets out of first gear. There’s hardly any tension and release with him. I remember seeing a post on them and the first comment said sad dads. I can laugh as I’m kinda one.

P.s. hugely lucky find with the ring :thumbup:

Robert Plant was excellent and still has much of his voice.

The Presets in June. :thumbup:

Splendour in the grass, PNAU and Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite.

went to see Aracade Fire last weekend - the really put on an incredible performance ; get the feeling the really are enjoying themselves -they had a New Orleans brass band opening who then joined in the party at the end which was fantastic. They did this thing where the set and entrance is like some big boxing/UFC event ; very cool. They include some cranberries medley stuff at the end also which was a nice touch

Scored tickets to see Jamiroquai at Montreux Jazz.

To be honest it's a bit more of a nostalgia gig than anything for me. Big fan through the 90s and early 2000s but not even sure they have released anything in the last 10 years.

Which venue did you go to? I went to the State Theatre as the acoustics in the main concert hall of the Opera House are terrible.

Saw these guys for the 8th time in 22 years two weeks back

That's where i saw him five years back. Awesome festival and recall one of them perhaps 2010 that had so much talent that Tim Finn was right down the bottom and probably playing at around midday. This year seemed a little weak, did you see Tash Sultana?

I love the National - will be seeing them again at all points east in May. Amazing band, I actually like the way Matt Berninger (the singer) almost introverts and goes into a song shell on the stage.

Recently saw Arcade Fire at Wembley, it was a cracking performance. Their live stuff is so brilliant not a single soul in the arena was sitting down at the end.

I like the National too. But I do struggle with his singing. He seldom gets out of first gear and then only briefly into second. I like a bit more build and release.

It was a weak billing this year. Total fudge up of a day, friend I was going with was one of the coordinators for the com games music and she got held up very late, that and forgetting there was a daylight saving time difference had us arriving 45min before he went on.

Saw them a few weeks ago in Manchester. Great show.

Off to see Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul in a few weeks.

Saw Marlon Williams last night at the Hunter Lounge in Vic Uni.

Great gig, but what a shit venue.

Stage is too low so loads of people couldn't see shit, too many tickets were sold and we were packed in like sardines which made it impossible to get to the toilets or get a drink.

Took my kids to their first rock concert on Friday night. Imagine Dragons. Not my type of music but I can appreciate a tight band with a great lead singer. It was all a little too...god bothery though. Lots of songs about trying to be a better man and love and forgiveness and such. Lead singer spent the whole night shirtless and is in, uh, rather good shape. I thought the girls sitting behind me were going to slip off their chairs.

I saw. Creedence Kyuss Revisited there a few years back now when they were touring as Kyuss Lives!

Pretty tight space but not overly sold. We were by the sound desk and the sound was a bit shite.

Gazza,

I’d check out Def Leppard were I in the same town and tickets not overly pricey.

They're a massive band of my past. The concert is Hysteria from start to finish. It's only a couple hours away so I though why not. I'm jumping up and down clapping my hands excited.

My brother’s first cassette tape was Hysteria. Mine was Wet Wet Wet. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t cross the road to see Marty and mates.

Got tickets to see Oh Sees in September, which I'm somewhat excited about given their live reputation. Will miss out on HMHB this time round as we're on holiday, which is a pity.

I talked to Muse, formerly of this parish, last week on FB. An old conversation of me telling him about Swervedriver Raise popped up on the “on this day” bollocks. He told me he’s been cranking a shit tonne of Thee Oh Sees recently. I hadn’t heard them. I like a bit of what I heard.

Didn’t realise they had two drummers until I found this link just now https://youtu.be/aYhnSgESK5w

Saw Melvins in Dunedin 7 years back during their two drummer tour and thought it a waste of time. Unnecessary.
