Live Review: Billy Idol, Cheap Trick, The Angels, The Choirboys - Bimbagden Winery, Hunter Valley (28.03.15)

The line up for today's A Day On the Green at Bimbadgen Winery in the Hunter Valley has a stellar line up featuring a plethora of talented musicians. The venue appears to be practically sold out as there isn't much green left to sit on, the regular general admission punters always arrive early to grab the best position and the seated punters have arrived to catch all four bands. There are plenty of toilets, free water and huge merchandise tent to check out as well as the possibility of grabbing a food hamper or a glorious bottle of wine.

Live Review: Dave Grohl's Sound City Players ft. John Fogerty, Lee Ving, Krist Novaselic and more... - Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles (05.03.13)

It was by pure coincidence that I found myself arriving in Los Angeles on the same day that Dave Grohl's Sound City Players shut down part of Hollywood Blvd - a privilege normally reserved for a film shoot or the Oscars - to put on a massive, free concert for competition winners and those lucky enough to grab a ticket on the website 1iota. I was in the latter category and the night was something of a mixed blessing. The music was incredible, sure - you definitely don't get to see musicians of this calibre play together like this very often! - but the context of it all - as well as my location miles away from the stage - may have perhaps spoiled some of the charm of the anticipated performance at SXSW, which I'll hopefully catch next week.
