The Shins are coming to Brisbane and are playing at the Arena. Since they wrote the song I’d like to play at my funeral I’d like to see them in the flesh. Jeremy and his mate are going, but since three is a crowd, does anyone want to come with me? They are playing Saturday 5th February with The Boat People and the Zebras. Tickets are $40.20
I’m also thinking of seeing Le Tigre this month at the Zoo. They are in town for the Big Day Out but will do a show after on Monday 24th January. I’ve played their version of “I’m so excited” to death but I also like a lot of their electronic punk songs. One of the members used to be in Bikini Kill. I’m a bit low on cash so if I had to decide between the two I’d have to choose the Shins, but if anyone else who reads this wants to go I may be persuaded. Tickets cost $37.40.
Both of them are much better than The Irish Rovers singing Lily the Pink.
