Concert heaven continues

Posted by: Kitten Power

I was getting a little morose, thinking after a dream Summer and Autumn, concert season had dried up.  I feared all that would be on offer over winter would be the likes of Westlife, Panic at The Disco (now apparently without an exclamation mark, which doesn’t help anything) or even, God forbid, the freaking Ten Tenors (isn’t one enough!?)

Anyway, thanks to the awesomeness of Cheese on Toast and their pre-sale, I have two shiny tickets to see The Breeders in a courier bag on the way to my house.  The Breeders feature Kim Deal, of the Pixies, who is perhaps one of the rockingest most talented women in rock history.  It’s bound to be a cracking show.  Having never seen The Breeders before, I am VERY excited. 

Also in my concert diary are indie rockers Band of Horses, who are coming in July.  If you haven’t heard these guys and their beautiful sound, do yourself a favour and check this out:

And finally rounding out my concert heaven, is the queen of my soul, the legendary Mary J Blige, who is making her first trip to New Zealand.  Hopefully she pulls out some of those heart wrenching slow jams that were part of the soundtrack to my early-teens, like this one:

Oh and anyone going to see Elton tonight - have a wickedly camp time!
