The other day, my friend Tom and I were discussing all the music we'd love to see live. I created a very long list of acts that I love, but haven't managed to see yet, as well as a whole bunch I'd like to see again.
In the past year or two, I've been a bit slack with seeing live music. When I was younger, I'd go to lots of gigs - probably an average of one a month - but that little tradition has slipped somewhat. Now I always think they're too expensive, or I'm too picky, or I'd just rather eat biscuits in bed.
It's time to sort that out!
Kickstarted by Seatwave offering me a pair of tickets to a gig in Bristol - Angus & Julia Stone, in case you're wondering! - I then searched everyone on my "To See Live" list, and found 3 more playing in Bristol.
It's safe to say that October & December are definitely going to be great months for gigs, now I just need some for November & the new year!
A really good way of staying up to date with favourite bands & local gigs is the Timbre app, which unfortunately is only available on iPhone at the moment. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they'll be releasing it on Android soon, to make my gig-going-planning way easier :)
Have you got any concerts lined up in the near future?
