The Coldplay Concert

I’m not sure what I expected when I went to see Coldplay perform at Suncorp Stadium but it wasn’t this. Like just about everyone else, Coldplay are a band that I’ve enjoyed since their debut album Parachutes twelve years ago when their single Yellow first made it big on the radio.  Since then, the band has rather consistently pumped out ...

Harvest 2012

I went to Harvest Festival on Sunday with Jen and Rich.  Harvest is only a couple of years old but I think it has found a pretty good niche for itself amongst the crowded festival circuit.  It’s positioned as the festival for people that don’t like the stereotypical bogan festival goer.  There are no shirtless, roided up dudes wearing Australian ...

The Economics of Aging Rock Bands

A few weeks ago, I saw two rock bands that I am very fond of: Def Leppard and The Dropkick Murphys.  Both bands have been playing for quite a number of years.  Def Leppard formed in Sheffield, England in 1977 and have been playing together for 34 years now.  The Dropkick Murphys originated in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1996 and have ...

I was very pleased to learn that my favourite band of all time Def Leppard will be returning to Australia for a tour in October of this year.  An Australian tour is a rare thing for these guys – prior to this occasion, they had only been in town twice in twenty years. I was there for the 2008 show ...

Weezer’s new album

It’s been a long time since Weezer but out anything worth listening to and chances are, this new album, coming out a scant twelve months after their last effort, probably won’t be any different.  Having said that, while the quality of the tracks themselves might not be any good, there’s no doubting that this is one of the finest album ...

Review: Brand New – Daisy

I find it hard to believe there are any casual Brand New fans out there anymore. The band hasn’t written a pop song since their debut “Your Favorite Weapon” and probably haven’t done any press (in the United States) since. While every Brand New record has been a giant leap from the one previous in terms of experimentation, Daisy is ...
