Gigs guide – 227

 Saturday 15th Feb
Diesel

Over twenty years in the business and Diesel is still able to make new, interesting music. His latest album is quite bluesy and sounds a bit John Butler Trio. The only bad thing I can really say is that I still don’t like the name Diesel; it would suit a metal/hard rock musician far better.

The Vanguard, $43.80

Eminem Rapture Tour

I don’t really like rap and am really selective with hip-hop but I’ve got to say Eminem will always have a soft spot in my heart. Apart from the fact that I actually like some of his songs (‘Stan’ is a masterpiece, I don’t care what anyone says), just the memory of rapping along as a little kid is enough to convince me to go. So should you.

ANZ Stadium, $155 (standing)

Placebo (pictured)

I just heard a new Placebo song for the first time since they released Meds and that’s probably because I’m no longer a teenager with a lot of angst. But Brian Molko can still sing and it did make me feel a bit nostalgic, so if you think you still have some love left for Placebo, definitely check out this show.

Enmore Theatre, $74.20
