    Hmmm...

    Probably Mogwai at the Sydney Opera House earlier this year. Huge post-rock sound from some guys from Glasgow in the main concert hall was a pretty surreal experience - even they were confused as to how it happened.

    Bruce Sprinsteen and the E Street Band circa 1984.

    Looking forward to Florida Georgia Line next year (just shows what ageing does to you).

    Casiopea

    Back when they were still good ;)

    I've been listening to quite a bit of Paco Pena lately.

    Thats where the Spanish ñ can make a difference from n. His name is Paco Peña.

    Pena is a pain or a pity (plus other meanings); peña is a rock or a crowd.

    But English language keyboards make it difficult to use the correct letter.

    I thought I was at that one, but more like 2001 for me. Anyway, was amazing.

    I've seen Cat Empire and Michael Franti each a few times. One of those would be my pick.

    How does one pick. All are good in their own way.

    But I really liked Faithless, Jan 2002 at the Metro in Melbourne. Incredible energy and a good vibe.

    Seen a few over the years but no one gets close to AC/DC.
    Would have loved to catch Faithless too.

    Mine would be Jimmy Eat World at the Enmore a few years back or Coheed and Cambria at soundwave, also a few years ago.

    Not sure if it was the right amount of rum and a small venue but JEW was such a great gig, I had never experienced such an appreciative crowd. Saw Kings of Leon at the same venue 2 years ago and was very disappointed. Must have got the rum mix wrong.
