Academy of Ancient Music performing all six of the Brandenburg Concertos on period instruments--March 20. That's a fuckload of harpsichords, not my favorite instrument, but I think I can manage.

Another small update, just so I won't forget:
14 February: Roosbeef, Ekko, Utrecht *
14 February: KXRadio Samenzwering (translated: conspiracy) party, Stairway To Heaven, Utrecht (with Dio, Marike Jager, DAAN, Bertolf and Voicst) *
7 March: Zita Swoon, Rotterdamse Schouwburg, Rotterdam (so a seated theater concert)
13 March: Kyteman's Hiphop Orkest, Tivoli, Utrecht (apparently live hiphop played by a 20-man band and they say it's really something)
11 April: Bob Dylan, Heineken Music Hall, Amsterdam

* Yep, these two events have overlap. I hope that Voicst will play early, so I can catch them, then go out for the Roosbeef concert and return later in the evening.

apparently i'm not going to see the hold steady. or maybe i'm not going to see glasvegas. i'm pretty sure it's the hold steady show i'll be skipping... the ticket for the hold steady show arrived in the mail today and i thought, huh. 3/31 sounds awfully familiar...i thought i was going somewhere else that night. could i have thought of this before i bought tickets to both shows? of course not.

That suuuucks. Franz Ferdinand announced they were playing on the same night as Black Lips, but since then Black Lips have moved their show to the next day, so it's all going to work.

By the way, IWB, have you listened to Black Lips? You'd probably enjoy.

YouTube - Black Lips "Cold Hands" UK Video

YouTube - Black Lips - Katrina - Vice Records

YouTube - BLACK LIPS - Bad Kids

i'm more pissed off at myself for not realizing it and purchasing a ticket to both shows that wasn't so smart. i'm pretty sure by the end of march i won't have perfected my time-splitting machine, thus still being unable to be in two places at once.

i have not heard them. i dig those songs.

Seen:
Stars

Missed:
Mystery Jets
Mogwai
David Byrne
Ting Tings
Prodigy

Possible:
Kaiser Chiefs
Coldplay
Battles

Big question mark for all three. Kaiser Chiefs may be quite fun. I haven't seen Coldplay before but I'm not very familiar with the new stuff (really didn't like X&Y though) plus tickets are very expensive. Battles might be interesting but again I don't really know enough. Heh.

Stars were great though, even if I didn't know a lot of the songs; got to meet the band afterwards and they autographed my ticket stub.

I'm really glad to hear you got to see the show. I had seen that they were playing in Singapore, and hoped that you would be able to make it. Motorcycle Emptiness as an opener as well?! Awesome.

Now they need to tour the US again. How many years has it been?

I´m going to see Orchestra Baobab in March. Famous Senegalese Orchestra with Cuban influences. If you like world music, check their tour itinerary. Orchestra Baobab on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

May be going to Reggae Sumfest, Montego Bay, this summer.

right, Franz have been touring European festival for years and years now. It´s boring to see them headlining.

That´s 4 bands I´m not interested in. Except the Killers maybe if they put me on a guestlist. I wouldn´t even waste time for the others.
