Freshly bought gig tickets:
- Placebo – 12th May – Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London
- Nine Inch Nails – 8th July – Heineken Music Hall, Amsterdam
- Nine Inch Nails – 9th July – Rockhal, Esch-Sur-Alzette
Adding to an already exciting show schedule including Alec Empire, Morrissey, and Graham Coxon.
Three music sites worth reading:
- Gigwise.com – the daddy of music news today, rendering most print journalism, and several of their web extensions, obsolete
- Daily Music Guide – Just came across this today. It’s still quite small, but very up-to-date. Lots of news about upcoming collaborations, full streaming concerts, and interviews with artists such as Will Young, Hockey, and Poison the Well
- 14 Tracks – Essentially, a mix tape website, selecting songs that are quintessential to a theme. It’s brilliant if you’re looking for something new, and don’t want to rely on the “you like x so must like y” format of most other music recommendation sites.
