Lisa Miller at Grand Central

Lisa Miller at Grand Central, 28th of January 2006

It been a while Since the last time I've seen a gig, over a month, whats with that. Didn't think much of the opening act, even though I like some of there past work, crap who were they again.... The Darling downs.

Nice venue, aircon worked. But couldn't see anything as I was sitting down and some bum in front of me. I must of forgot that I had the use of my legs due to the aircon and cold beer, brought in from the front bar, and the back didn't have daught on tap.

Lisa Miller captivated the crowd with her sweet voice on a lazy Melbourne summer day. It was great to kickback.

Hottest 100 - My 10 votes

Another Hottest 100 has come around with its online and sms voting (about 470,000 from Australia and overseas). Times have changed when it was just a piece of card that was picked up at your local ABC shop and sent away.

When I loged on today and it's a little slow, maybe this is because its one of the biggest music polls online today. Gone are the days where you had a couple of months to decide what you would vote for, instead its now 20 days from the 1st till the 20th of January. Nice addition is the online countdown for the close of voting.

Heres what I picked, we'll see where they get Australia day (in no order)

Wrong Time Capsule - Deerhoof
Destroy Rock & Roll {Remix) - Mylo
Feel Good Inc. - Gorillaz
Positive Tension - Bloc Party
I Turn My Camera On - Spoon
Flame Trees - Sarah Blasko
Rebellion (Lies) - Arcade Fire
Hope There's Someone - Antony & The Johnsons
Silly Thing - Sophie Koh
Taste The Last Girl - Sons And Daughters

Selling like hot cakes
