50 bands I’ve seen; a list.

I came across this post by the brilliant music critic Everett True on Collapse Board, a collaborative music blog based in Brisbane, and I thought I might do the same.

I really fucking love lists.

As an added bonus, I thought I’d do it somewhat chronologically—please excuse the fact that I’ve got most of it completely arseways—so you can have a laugh at some of the first concerts I ever went to… Also, like Everett’s idea, if I’ve seen a band more than once (and can remember doing so) then the number of times will be in brackets.

1. S Club 7
2. Meat Loaf (x3)
3. Stephen Stills
4. Bob Dylan
