the gigs of february 2009

This has been one of the best months for live music that I remember in years. I think January-March is always the busiest time of year for both international and local acts touring in Australia, but this February has been truly exceptional:
  • Laneway Festival- Stereolab (!) and The Drones are particular highlights. I've seen Stereolab here many times over the years, but this was the first time they had returned since Mary's passing.
  • Propagandhi, first time back in Brisbane since 1998.
  • Dave McCormack doing a Sunday arvo Powerhouse show.
  • British India at The Zoo - shit crowd, but good band and DZ were an awesome local support act.
  • Death Cab for Cutie at The Tivoli, supported by Youth Group.
Now if that's not enough.... I can start March off with Mogwai at The Tivoli this Tuesday.
