Bit Early for I know but so far the standout Concert this year has been Marianne. I admit she wasn't as slick as she has been in the past The Saturdaay Night Bris show the band was off it was tighter on Sunday main problem in my mind was the venue. I dont think the Tivoli really suited but hell Marianne still has one of the sexiest female voices around. Lets face it there will neve be another Marianne

A bit of a contrast to the Sydney festivals rogue's gallery.
Not that i'm compareing her concerts to the sydney gig as they were two completely different shows.
Most punters were more upset with organisers than anything else but quite a few seem to think Marianne got in the"spirit"of the event & indulged in a drink or ten before the show.

Some reviews from attendees.

a couple of vids from her Sydney show.

I thought the old songs were brilliant. The new songs, apart from a few like The Crane Wife & Kimbe? more average, I know she was touring her latest album but would have preferred a "greatest hits" tour (like I think most of the audience). But pleased I saw her, Times Square & Sister Morphine made it well worth it.

Sydney Festival threw up so many highlights for me already.

Al Green was the consumate performer - most of the criticisms I've read I thought were nitpicky - still such a huge voice and stage presence.
Grizzly Bear were very very good - a band who have just stepped up with this most recent album
John Cale was all class as expected - if only Lou Reed had appeared and Venus in Furs was given a run
The Dirty Three - what can you say? Just in a whole different place to so many other bands. Warren Ellis should be knighted.

Out of festival, Joanna Newsom was once again outstanding (3rd time I've seen her now) and Antony put on a great performance with the Sydney Symphony, though I thought it wasn't quite worthy of the unabashed reverence showered upon him. A brilliant performer and a rare talent yes, but frankly, the show was better when he was last out in 2006, and the crowd didn't go completely nutso like this time. Quote of the night was the silly chook of a woman behind me, talking over a song intro "he doesn't even look at the keys when he plays. So gifted!". This despite the fact that his piano playing was blown away by the guy that took over the piano stool when Antony sung out the front of stage.......anyway, I digress.

Dan Sultan was a great nite and Vieux Fakka Toure at The Barracks, but the cookie goes to Kasabian at the Enmore. What a vibe! and the sound was good. Having another look see at Dan Sultan again at the Factory Theatre. I'm hoping Dead Weather will be great too. Sooooooooooo much to see...........so little cash.
