Music Week - Celebrating Live Music

Hey folks! Welcome to day six of music week. Today’s post is a celebration of live music and I’ve had all sorts of fun putting together our “Music Festivals Madness” style board. I’m also super chuffed to welcome today’s sponsor “Baby Ear Muffs“. Read on!

Cool Kids Gear for Music Festivals

If you’re anything like me, you’ll have very fond memories of seeing your favourite recording artists live in concert. I can still recall standing awestruck at my first ever concert after sneaking into to an over 18’s gig by The Violent Femmes at a local leagues club. I’ve since seen them about 8 times in concert because they’re just so damn fun!

I also had my first kiddy gig experience last year at a wiggles concert; and may I just say, those kids can ROCK OUT! This year I’ll be taking the kids to the Rhymes Festival. It’s happening in Townsville, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane with acts such as Yo Gabba Gabba, Lazy Town, ZingZillas et al.

Edz Kidz Ear Muffs

If your kids are regulars on the gig circuit, love to attend noisy sports events like motor racing or air shows, have a penchant for fireworks, or even like to help Dad to mow the lawn, Baby Ear Muffs have some of the coolest ear protection around… We’re digging the pink set, but they come in a whole range of colours.

Congratulations to our winners… Sharon H. + Julie B.

CompetitionDo you need some heavy duty and super stylin’ hearing protection for your little rockers? We have TWO pairs of Edz Kidz Ear Muffs to giveaway from our friends at Baby Ear Muffs Australia. To enter, just tell us about the coolest band you’ve ever seen live in concert! Two winners will be drawn on 7 April, 2011.

    The first time I saw The Cure in 1992, it was the most amazing experience of my life. I still have a frame picture of Robert Smith from that night that I took while squished up against the front row barrier.

  • Jamie

    Green Day!!!!

  • Oscars-Mum

    Blondie at Festival Hall in Brisbane.

  • Matt

    I saw KISS the last time they toured Australia after wanting to see them for the past 20 years and never getting around to it. They were pretty good for a bunch of old guys.

  • Christian

    The Ramones at Big Day Out. I can’t remember what year it was in but I do remember they came on after Bjork and it was seriously surreal.

  • Kerrie

    I saw Pink on her last tour and her was amazing. I took my 13 year old and three of her friends for her birthday though so I had to refrain from dancing or doing anything else that could be considered embarrassing.

  • AC/DC was pretty awesome but personally I loved Evanescence the most. Knew every song!

  • jody

    Best ever was The Decemberists last year, i was 8 months pregnant but that didnt stop me! They were amazing, and my little bean love it too!

  • definately the final ever lucksmiths show in melbourne, having loved these guys for over a decade it was a really sad time to know this is the last live gig ever. my hubby and i were married to one of their songs and have indoctrined our kids to many lucksmiths tunes with great enjoyment.

    INXS, back in the day. Michael Hutchence was pure sex on legs! It was truly an awesome experience 🙂

  • seana

    Well Belle and Sebastian are fresh in my mind (as I only seen them the other week for the 2nd time…and I don’t get out as much as I used to) but probably the “coolest” was The Strokes being ‘special guests’ to You am I it was a night club show so the crowd wasn’t too huge and it was about a month before the became HUGE. My Irish cousin was on holiday (and not a huge You am I fan) sat talking to one of them (Albert I think) for about half an hour telling him her brother puts on gigs in Ireland if they wanted to tour there. They must have been on Top of the Pops a week after!!

    Blondie in the nineties. Blondie was my childhood/ teenage obsession in the seventies and eighties and though we were all older it was still fantastic!

  • Wendy Hatton

    Haven’t ever seen many but definitely remember seeing Dr Hook a loooong time ago.

  • Natalie

    I love my country music, and loved seeing Adam Harvey live at the RSL in a little west-qld town – such an intimate atmosphere, rather than the normal big concerts that many stars perform at!

  • Bobbie

    Metallica without a doubt! Motley Crue comes a close second.

  • Angylene

    It’s hard to pick which ones have been best, cause I’ve seen a lot!!! Pearl Jam, Bjork, Hole, The Stokes, PJ Harvey … the list goes on!! Most memorable would be Faith No More last year when I was 7 months pregnant with my lil baby dancing along in my tummy!! 🙂

  • Carmen

    Faith no More and Metallica were two memorable ones

  • Metallica’s Christchurch gig was amazing in September. Small venue, amazing acoustic and a band having fun playing at a more “intimate” venue than normal… AMAZING!

  • Alison

    The Living End are a favorite of mine to see live. They have so much energy! Metallica and Pearl Jam were good to live too.

  • Alison

    that was supposed to say… good to see live, lol.

  • Jessie Boan

    Jack Johnson and The John Butler Trio have been favs of mine… maybe to be topped by Angus and Julia Stone this weekend…?! Yay for live music!

  • Julie

    Haven’t been to many really. But Loved seeing Superchick live last year.

  • Hands down the Smashing Pumpkins playing in the streets of Minneapolis. Crazy cool…!

  • karina w

    I sawe Bon Jovi and he was awesome. 2 full hours of rock’ n Roll and good memories!

  • sharyn h

    It was a long time ago since i went to any concerts but as a teenager/young adult i think my favourite i went to was probably Bon Jovi.
