Well again its been way too long since my last plog! This plog however is dedicated to the Wave Aid concert that sar and I went and saw last saturday. Excellent day/nite…. the line up of acts included:
Waifs – missed them cause we were late…shame, i have heard they are pretty good….
Missy Higgins – was good, not necessarily my style but can definitely appreciate her talent…
Nick Cave – never really like him…songs too long and not my style….ate chips and icecream instead!!
Casey Chambers – excellent, one of the few counrty music acts that can make in the ock scene also…very talented singer….her dad is on theband!!
The Wrights – performed Evie (spellin) parts 1-3. The original never did it for me so….what can i say….pretty impressive tho since the ppl included, lead singer from Jet and a few other top bands that i cant remember..
Pete Murray – great singer….top act…plus the girls love hime!!!
SilverChair – never seen these guys before….its been along ime since they played together so one would expect them to be a bit rusty…which they were….nonetheless ok.
Powderfinger – excellent live band….woulda paided the money just for them alone….
Midnight Oil – again…a band who reformed just for this concert…the only one who really made an effort to identify the real reason for the conceert….Peter Garret is an excellent showman….sounds awesome live also.
Got some ok pix of the concert and some neat video footage as well….they had some fireworks during the night….not much to comment on but..hey …better than a kick in the ass….
The walk down cleveland street in thongs was a bit rough….but quicker that getting a bloody bus to central….
Overall it was an excellent day….it was also great to spend some time with sar, time seems to be harder and harder to find now……
Will post some pix and vids of the day on the gallery…..
