"When it comes to catching a live band, Melbourne knocks the harbour city into a cocked hat. "
This article goes in depth about why there is a lack of live venues in Sydney compared to Melbourne. It definitely shocking to a city that can hold an Olympic games, struggles to create a live music culture. What shocked me about reading this article was that a pub could have a few hundred people could be watching a football game on a screen without a licence but if you have a lone acoustic act performing in front of a handful of people you need a licence. Makes me think, Melbourne is a lucky place.
If know of any good links, gigs or would like to send me an mp3 please feel to send an email to noisecitymelb(at)gmail.com. Remember this is a Melbourne Centric website and I may not post what you've sent me if it has nothing to do with Melbourne Music scene.
