    None, if you mean proper bands in proper venues.

    Will probably go and see the Blockheads in November. Oi OI! other than that, nowt really. Used to go a lot, but since having kids it's just too much hassle.
    Stop playing that silly sport where you whack a little white ball into a hole.

    What the fucks that about?

    More time for live music and a lot less frustrating (if your random image is owt to go by)

    For the type of music I like, I would move to Brighton if I could. Everyone and his dog* seems to play there now.

    *First dibs on that band name.

    2 or 3 per year. Now the kids are older will try to get to a few more, my eldest daughter is an Indie kid so hopefully will get to a few with her, we went to see the Maccabees together recently. Only Richard Hawley at Brixton on the horizon currently.


    If we don't have a summer holiday next I quite fancy going to Latitude or Hop Farm depending on line ups.

    Cheers BB

    Living in the sticks rather limits who I can get to see venues like RockCity and The Rescue Room in Nottingham and The Junction and Corn Exchange in Cambridge are within a 90 minute drive so that rather restricts who I can see.

    However I do attend 10 to 12 concerts a year, notable ones so far this year have been Lanterns on the Lake, Ladyhawke and Bat for Lashes, and Ive also got tickets booked for Radiohead and Beach House later in the year

    I'm a bit fussy who I go and see, maybe 2 or 3, only one so far this year and nothing in the pipeline.

    well it seems the above chap is in scotland near me , but i go to at least one gig a month i really try to , actually i am a professional music teacher and until recently also played some jazz gigs,

    i try to support the local council venue in dunfermline, but things seem to have gone down hill regarding music ,

    i go to all sorts, opera , large scale and touring , jazz, folk , even the odd rock thing.

    i also try to go to a theatre show /play as often as i find things that appeal to me.

    i do like to take a chance and go to off the beaten track sort of things,

    as for jazz i am f'''''@@@KING SICK OF a tribute to this or that, and bloody radio scotland siingalongs to old frank sinatra tunes,

    done piss poorly , my opinion of course, i would wonder if the bbc in scotland could prehaps get off there be hinds and ahve a look around for other stuff.

    the kyle east wood came to carnegie halls and strangly not too many people could be arsed getting there , its a good show,

    his double bass playing is just ok , if you are in doubt go any way .

    mt best in the last ten years was the bad sheppards at carnegie it was a great night , and cheap as usuall prices sem reasonable no robbing fee ! i mean booking add on fee , even for picking up ,

    ticket master more like ticket tax .

    Hardly any, only one this year. I was in gigging bands until I was 35 or so and met people along the way who could play! These guys got in successful acts and I would get in on the guest list or someone elses guest list through them. I also used to buy tickets for other things... I have young children now and live in the sticks, so getting a night out is expensive and more difficult than it used to be. I do miss it...

    Went to literally hundreds of gigs betwen 1988-1994. First gig was The Mission at the Astoria - last night of a 7 night residency supported by All About Eve, but haven't been to one since I saw Lush at the Roadmenders in Northampton 1995.
