HOT Gig List – January to March

CCToday we say hi to our new contributor CC, a cool ex-Aussie who now calls East London home. Her motto is ‘with great musical wisdom, comes great musical responsibility’ and she’ll be bringing you regular new of upcoming HOT gigs in Brisbane. This girl has cred – I’ve followed in her musical wake at New Young Pony Club, The Cribs, Goldfrapp, Does It Offend You Yeah, Interpol, Turin Brakes, Cajun Dance Party, Broken Social Scene, Kaiser Chiefs, Editors – and Lucky Voice Karaoke in Soho.

CC’s HOT Gig List – HOT gigs for the next 3 months

January 2010

Yeah Yeah Yeahs (US) – 7 Jan, Sunset Sounds
No one could be HOTTER than Karen O with amazing vocals and crazy outfits! The latest album, ‘It’s Blitz‘, has clever, yet heartfelt lyrics and melodies in the league of Maps, perhaps even better.

The Horrors17 Jan, Big Day Out
Moody, yet melodic bass lines and guitar distortions. Primary Colours – one of the HOTTEST albums released this year. Swoon to Scarlet Fields.

Passion Pit17 Jan, Big Day Out
Uplifting, bubblegummy, fun, electro band from US. It was mentioned somewhere that the songs were originally written as a present for the girlfriend. ‘Sleepyhead’ was on my MySpace for quite some time.

The xx 29 Jan, St Jerome Laneway Festival
The xx are four young teenagers from south west London, who released their HOT debut album this year, and have now had sold out shows all over London. The album is sad, yet uplifting and inspiring at the same time.

Florence and the Machine29 Jan, St Jerome Laneway Festival
Listed as “one of the breakthrough acts in the UK for 2009”. Fronted by 23 year old Florence Welch, who has been compared to the likes of Kate Bush, PJ Harvey and even Fergie (the Duchess, not the one from Black Eyed Peas). She used to sing at funerals too. Expect angry lyrics and maybe some harp playing.

Peaches – 18 Jan, The Hifi
Calvin Harris (with Lily Allen) – 19 Jan, Brisbane Riverstage

February 2010

The Cribs16 Feb, The Zoo
Awesome band (which Jetsetting Joyce and I saw twice in London!). The 3 Jarman brothers now have a new addition, guitartist Johnny Marr (of The Smiths and Modest Mouse).  Watch out for the crazy antics of Ryan Jarman.

March 2010

1) The Big Pink4th Mar, The Hifi
Definitely HOT gig pick for March.  An excellent debut album was released in 2009, “A Brief History of Love”, for this electro rock band.

2) Lady GaGa26 Mar, Brisbane Entertainment Centre
Now, this lady, she’s HOT! Check out her new tattoos and new video clip for Bad Romance. I’ve been learning those dance moves, and someone please dare me to get inked with the cursive text of some random philosophical quote on my arm.

3) La Roux25 Mar, Barcadi Express atTivoli
Weird hair, weird look but catchy songs!
