I saw a reasonably popular rock band in a smallish venue a few months back and the sound was atrocious. It was all bass and drums and I could barely hear the guitar, keyboards or vocals. This band in no way plays bass heavy music. Is the band or the venue at fault? [more inside]
I have a big important concert that I'm playing coming up sort of soon. I'm not even sure what to ask... but here goes. [more inside]

I have my first show coming up. My first show will be an admittedly lame DJ set where I pretty much just play one song after the other...if I had more time I would try to come up with something more interesting, but any suggestions for making this performance not so boring? [more inside]

Does anyone know what live music will appear on the Hawaiian island of Kauai between December 30 and January 8, 2008? I'd like to check something out. Superduper thumbs up for any Okinawan music.
Where can I download a live recording of Electrelane's final show? I've emailed the band and gotten no response. Many of the places I used to look online for live recordings are gone.
Which bands/artists put on the best live shows? [more inside]
I'm taking a holiday from around the 25th of July for 5 weeks to the UK, France and Germany. As well as doing plenty of sightseeing, I'd love to see some great live music by some bands/DJs that might not make it to Australia for a few years. Being in Melbourne, and having never been to the UK before, I have no idea about what source to go to, to find out what festivals or gigs by bands/DJs are coming up. Melburnians know to check their local street press, where do the Brits go to find out all their music news?
Please recommend some great websites for news, reviews and schedules. Anything with an RSS feed would be awesome, but I'm not worried if it doesn't have one.
A poke around in google found www.virtualfestivals.com
which seems to be good for festivals, but not much for gigs. Not like the usual street press that I'm used to reading.
I had the thought to go to Reading/Leeds Festivals or Creamfields, but I think they might already be sold out. I also have no idea where to buy tickets from. Are there major ticket agencies to head to? Is ebay a good option?
Also, any thoughts, recommendations or live music experiences for festivals, gigs or venues are more than welcome!
On Saturday night, The Futureheads performed on CBC Radio 3, and I missed it! I know that there are those that would allow me to listen to this concert, but for the life of me I cannot reach them. I've tried Google and Just Concerts
, but they do not have it. (additionally, everything is in RealPlayer format, ick-city!)
Where might I go to find such live concerts in MP3 (or similar) format? [more inside]
