A band called the Cult are playing down here in November.
A rare treat.
Never heard of them.
A glance reveals that the vocalist is the guy who filled Jim's spot in Doors of the 21st Century.
And they are post punk/gothic.

Their post punk/gothic phase ended around the mid 80's.
This is more indicative of what you're likely to get.

Well I was at a couple of the Gigs when Ian Astbury was playing Jim and he and Robbie and Ray did a fantastic job.

The shows were fine and everyone was very happy

Shortly after that the legal action came on, and that was the end of that


The Cult themselves are a great Rock Band with some fine songs, they are what the are.

And I would love to see them again

I'm with you regards.
A great good sounding heavy rock band.
I first heard them when I got myself the album called electric from the cheap section @ a second hand music store .
Why I decided to buy I have no idea as I thought the cover looked ridiculous but maybe that's why I made the buy? Curiosity.
Some of the lyrics are basic @ best "baby baby baby- yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Ow!! But I still liked it then & still like it now.

They toured about 3 years ago and the tour was called Elactric 13. They played most of the electric album which I really liked as well. Still one of the best concerts I have been to.

I bought tickets for $89.90 thru Ticketmaster.
Yet Ticketmaster's resale site has tickets on sale to the same gig at $172.50,on the first day of public sale.
Not logical.

The resale includes as high markup imposed by Ticketmaster. This is their way of making sure that resale tickets are not competing with tickets still on sale for an event which has not sold out. It also acts as an additional revenue stream from people who may not want to take the risk of scalpers or gumtree scammers. I recently sold my Ben Harber ticket for the rescheduled tour. To cover just the cost of the initial purchase (without the booking fee), I was forced to put a price that was close to 30% higher than I paid for it.

But at least the $100 can now go towards covering the cost of my QMF ticket.

I thought the Doors with Astbury was fantastic. They headlined the now defunct Melbourne Music Festival in the mid 2000's....played the Myer Music Bowl along with Blondie, Michael Franti and Kate Ceberano if I remember correctly. Blondie were brilliant as well, but The Doors really rocked and Astbury was doing his best Jim thing, but it went down a treat.

The Waifs, Patty Griffin & Eddie Reader

I wish the Canberra Folk Festival & Bluesfest had jointly booked Patty Griffin.
Her appearance at Bluesfest was a stunning performance.
Love to see her again.

Friday at the Caloundra Music Festival, highlights Busby Marou, Tower of Power, Bobby Alu, and Erica Falls. We had a bit of a wait to get in on arrival, however we got there early enough to ensure we didn't miss Bobby Alu opening the souls stage, great way to chill.

Busby Marou are always good value and excited to hear they have a new album on the way. Tower of Power delivered great soul and funk, after 49 years they know how to generate great audience participation.

Erica Falls was fantastic, great voice and seemed to really enjoy herself on stage and her band knew their stuff.


Will I never know silence without mental violence?

I went to see Michael Franti at the Croxton Hotel in Thornbury (Melbourne) last Thursday. It was against my better wishes as I had seen him quite a few times over the journey and to me he was getting a bit same same. However, my wife loves him so we went as a treat to her. And I must say, he put on an outstanding show. Most of the songs came from his new album Soulrocker, with a smattering of older tunes and it was fresh and alive. He is a great showman, I'll give him that. And it is always a happy concert, he does put a smile on your face. So all in all, a really enjoyable gig. And that was my first time to the Croxton for a gig, they have only been having international acts there over the last 12-18 months, and what an outstanding venue it is.
