    The Pixies @ The Hordern Pavilion, Moore Park Monday night 15th March 2010

    "To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their classic 1980 album, Doolittle, Pixies - Black Francis, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering- have embarked on a very special tour - 'The Doolittle Tour' - which arrives in Australia in March 2010.

    For the Doolittle Tour, Pixies will perform all of the songs from Doolittle and its related B-sides. Pixies' classics such as 'Debaser', 'Wave Of Mutilation', 'Here Comes Your Man', 'Hey' and 'Gouge Away' are all on Doolittle's track listing.

    "We wanted to do something special for Doolittle's 20th anniversary," Black Francis said, "and we thought this was a good opportunity to play all of the songs from that album, something we don't normally do at a regular gig.""
    Doolittle track listing:
    1. Debaser
    2. Tame
    3. Wave of Mutilation
    4. I Bleed
    5. Here Comes Your Man
    6. Dead
    7. Monkey Gone to Heaven
    8. Mr. Grieves
    9. Crackity Jones
    10. La La Love You
    11. No. 13 Baby
    12. There Goes My Gun
    13. Hey
    14. Silver
    15. Gouge Away
    ---

    First time I have ever seen them live - Fantastic gig!

    I got there around 9pm (they were scheduled to start @ 9:15pm) and was amazed at the massive queues to get into the Hordern – so many people with the same idea as me: Virtually forget the support act(s), just rock up for The Pixies. The queue didn’t take too long anyway, and thankfully the Pixies didn’t start until around 9:25pm.
    Eyed off all the shirts / merchandise on the way in and nothing stood out for mine.
    Always exciting to wander into the dark auditorium proper in The Hordern, and geez it was pretty packed.

    One of the best aspects was the sound – very crisp, nice loud deep bass, their sound engineers & the Hordern’s equipment really worked well together and produced really great sound in all aspects including their voices.

    Overall they put on a great show too – with a few years under their belts these days they played & performed pretty much like you would expect them 2 decades ago.

    The multimedia aspects were good, and the haunting, surreal lead-up sequences including various video clips on a sheet-screen behind the stage matched with some really good building music with grinding yet ambient elements – very sweet.

    Highlights of course were the first 5 tracks off Doolittle, as well as Gouge Away – I was quite close to the stage-right speaker with a fairly good view of the band during much of it and sometimes it was quite mesmerising.
    The quality of reproduction of each track was really very good, and geez it was thrilling and enjoyable to listen to such familiar tunes with which we were so familiar during the early 90’s.

    They played two encores – and geez the vibe & atmosphere after the main set where everyone could just feel that they were gonna return for an encore was quite amazing, surely the band, roadies and staff were impressed with some of the chanting and stomping!

    The first encore included the slow version of Wave of Mutilation which I love, and the second encore started off with the wonderful Velouria which I was SO hoping they would do!

    A concert WELL worth it for those who like The Pixies & their Doolittle album, very glad to have gone.

    Massive Attack at Sidney Myer Music Bowl. expensive show. too expensive. Dont really think it was worth it, mainly because of the venue. outdoors had no atmosphere. even with blinding lights, and epileptic strobes.

    ergh cant be bothered typing more

    ahk cool. yeah do share what she thought.

    i had a seat couple of rows from the stage, so had a better view than those who decided to get up and dance. would have been better if the venue had a roof, and if there werent any seats. people i know have complained about the sound at sidney myer (one concert in particular: Red Hot Chili's. friend of mine paid $250 for her ticket ) but the production and sound quality was top notch.

    Saw French Bossa Nova/New Wave cover band Nouvelle Vague at The Prince Of Wales Hotel, where they put on a hell of a show. The 2 female vocalists had a blast just dancing around and being a tease. The percussionist/drummer was incredible. The support act was French vocalist Berry and she was obviously popular for just being French because there wasnt a whole lot going for it

    discovered Sydney band sleepmakeswaves when i saw them play at The Corner Hotel with Mushroom Giant. Awesome band

    Caught Love Of Diagrams' first gig in Aus this year after just coming back from a coast-to-coast tour of the US. That was at The Northcote Social Club.

    Tame Impala played at The Forum the other month for the release of their highly anticipated debut album. Crowd was decent, venue is very cool and band played great.

    Friends band The Latonas are making their way onto the music scene, releasing their EP not long ago at Revolver and played last night at onesixone. As unprofessional as they can be during soundchecks, theyre getting better as a band

    Got tickets for Band of Skulls next month at The East Brunswick Club and really pumped for the Birds Of Tokyo/Silversun Pickups double at Festival Hall later in the year

    I used to carry my friends guitar into the club to avoid the cover charge and then try to convince the bartender to give me free drinks. Free drinks never worked. Does that count though, or does it have to be a band that get paid more than $60 a gig?

    From elsewhere:

    "Wow.

    That Was Just Your Life
    Fuel
    Disposable Heroes
    The Thing That Should Not Be
    Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
    Leper Messiah
    I Disappear
    Sad But True
    Turn The Page
    All Nightmare Long
    One
    Master Of Puppets
    Damage, Inc.
    Nothing Else Matters
    Enter Sandman
    - - - - - - - -
    Last Caress
    Trapped Under Ice
    Seek and Destroy

    One of the greatest setlists I have ever seen"

    THAT just freakin' rocked last night.
    I was pretty trashed and really getting into the headbanging, moshing, singing and rockin' with those around us - I had little idea of the exact order - thought Trapped Under Ice was a few songs earlier.
    Switch out Fuel, I Disappear and All Nightmare Long for Harvester, Battery & Fade, AND add Creep as a surprise impro. final track in a second encore and it would have been perfect.
    Of course, it just kicked ass regardless!

    The highlights were Thingy and Sanitarium.. OH man The Thing That Should Not Be absolutely went OFF!
    And then later Damage as well as Trapped Under Ice!
    So stoked to see them kick Trapped Under Ice live!!

    Six Puppetz tracks all up in one 2010 show! Just awesome.
    Stoked.

    went to Pyramid Rock Festival at Phillip Island. got a last minute ticket because i hadnt originally planned to go as there werent many bands i wanted to see.

    Future Of The Left was a priority, even though i have tickets to their sideshow tomorrow night. they were awesome. funny as hell too. (never met a Welshman before)
    Built To Spill were great too. heard of them, but not listened to them and was very impressed.
    A friends recommended Trentemøller, who i knew was an electronic DJ but he did a live set with a drummer, bassist, guitarist, percussionist, vocalists etc. and it was amazing.
    Jebediah's comeback set was welcome by many, and they put on quite a show. none of the new material really stood out as anything special. especially when compared to the classics.
    N*E*R*D did the midnight countdown and they were pretty good. not a great start with some technical issues and missing the countdown, but most people had a lot of fun. however they spent a fair bit of time telling the crowd what to do as oppose to playing some of their better songs.
