Bands You Must See Before You Die Revisited

I said I would revisit this post again firstly to tick off some I have seen and also to revise the list. Check out the original post here for June 08 :http://indielimerick.blogspot.com/2008/06/bands-you-must-see-before-you-die.html
The Original List :
-Radiohead (Saw them on the 07/06/2008 - Review here http://indielimerick.blogspot.com/2008/06/radiohead-live-malahide-castledublin.html) -Ryan Adams(Saw him twice on the 28/11/2007 - Review here http://indielimerick.blogspot.com/2007/11/ryan-adams-national-stadium-dublin-28th.html& also the 08/11/2008 - Review here http://indielimerick.blogspot.com/2008/11/ryan-adams-live-ambassdor-theatre_11.html) -Neil Young (Saw him on the 26/06/08- Review here http://indielimerick.blogspot.com/2008/06/neil-young-malahide-castledublin-290608.html) -Travis (Saw them on the 07/09/2008 - Review here http://indielimerick.blogspot.com/2008/09/travis-live-at-cois-fharraige-7092008.html) -Bob Dylan (Will see on the 5/5/09 in the 02 Dublin) -Morrissey (will see on the 29/April/2009 - Morrissey, Leisureland, Galway) -Oasis (will see on the 20/June/2009 - Oasis, Slane Castle)
The Rest still remain unheard -The White Stripes ( Nearly Did at Oxegen but they pulled out at the last minute) -Led Zeppelin (Doubtful) -The Rolling Stones (Who Knows Maybe One Day) -David Bowie (Nearly Did at Oxegen but he pulled out at the last minute) -Pink Floyd (Doubt that will happen) -The Libertines (Surely the comeback will happen one day) The New List! From the old list -The White Stripes -Led Zeppelin -The Rolling Stones -David Bowie -Pink Floyd -The Libertines (More likely now that both pete and carl aren't tied down with side projects, any day now I reckon) The Newbies -Bon Iver ( Meant to see him last year but never got around to popping up to Dublin, there were too many gigs last year as it was) -The Flaming Lips (Never heard a bad live word about them! A must see) -Bright Eyes ( Should have seen him in 2007 at Oxegen, wont miss that opportunity again) -Bruce Springsteen ( After getting into the earlier stuff I think its time to see this master at work) -Elbow -Badly Drawn Boy -Wilco -Modest Mouse -The Doves +I Will keep adding to the list so keep an eye out. If I keep adding to it ill never finish but on the other hand I never want to be finished. I have nearly seven knocked off the original list, which is great going, hopefully ill have another seven gone this time next year.

Hey IL, been a while. Morrissey in Leisureland should be great. Is that a bowling alley?

Oh, by the way - are you aware your blog title in firefox tabs is ".", and in google reader etc - it doesn't come up as Indie Limerick.

ya its when i made the blog to have a picture at the top instead of a text title, its "." so it doesnt cover the picture on the header, of you have away around it let me know

Milkbox said...

Aha, I see. Can't help I'm afraid. Maybe you should just change the name of the blog to "." Problem solved. . .

How about My Bloody Valentine? I saw them at Electric Picnic last year and they absolutely blew me away. Guitars making noises that didn't sound right for a guitar....was truely stunning.

ha ha good luck with led zeppelin but unless you've figured out a way to bring back Bonham back to life it could be kinda difficult...
