Have no idea when I became such a big fan of Thee Oh Sees, maybe it was when I saw them live in Sydney last year. They are severely underrated and I’m really excited to hear their new album before they go on a much deserved hiatus. Hopefully another gig in Sydney before then…? Also looking forward to new Black Lips, Flaming Lips, My Morning Jacket, Perfume Genius and Wilco (More collab with Jim O’Rourke please)
PS. The only time I’d agree with NO photography is when an artist is staging a conceptual piece; and taking one shot (out of context) makes no sense.
I recommend restraint,
6-7 shots (no flash) for the entire concert.
Only ONE 20 sec video concert if you must.
Be considerate to other concert goers.
It IS a rock concert after all; let’s not get overly precious and ban photography altogether.
Hoping for more vintage BKs. Recent radio friendly hits left me cold.
Damien Jurado, elbow, Ed Harcourt and Prince are all dropping new albums.
The Flaming Lips at 35? Guess It’s lost on everyone just how brilliant this album is.
Let’s hope so. Too much hype could go the other way.
One look at your high rotation list suggests indie rock is dead.
Just listen to the same album already! I’m not paying for the same album twice…
