    Never seen Wu but seen the rest and they're all brilliant live so... If anyone can....

    oh, it'll be awful. There's an instant pavlovian response to that kind of a lineup though huh?

    Yeah, just had this conversation with the husband. Can't bring ourselves to spend £200 on stadium sound/beer etc, even for the Wu Tang Clan :(

    I've only seen PE of the three, and only on festival stages - they were underwhelming on both occasions I saw them, and that was the best part of 20 years ago. I doubt they've found a way to capture it since...

    Has anyone seen Kraftwerk recently btw? I'm very tempted to go and see them play Jodrell Bank in the summer, but I've got a long-standing reticence about seeing heritage acts in big venues.

    (also seeing Kraftwerk at Jodrell Bank is almost the ultimate instant pavlovian response isn't it? It's going to be difficult for the reality to live up to the concept...)

    I saw Sigur Ros there a couple of years back, and it did kinda work, actually. It's just a great stage, and they use it really well. The rest of the day was a bit meh tho

    I've been interested in the lower order of the lineup at bluedot for a few years but always put off by the dull headliners - this year the headliners are great but the rest of the lineup doesn't interest me as much.

    Being underwhelmed in a small venue is less underwhelming than in a big room tho. There is no way I'm paying 25 pounds though.

    Antibalas, one of the very best afrobeat bands playing today, out of NY, are coming back to the UK after several years , Jazz Cafe the final date on their 20th anniversary tour. Brilliant live band, rare show, recommend. In April
    Antibalas - The Jazz Cafe
    They play hard

    Yeah I got standing tickets. Wasn't going to bother with seats. Should still be able to jump around like a loon.

    Define recent. I saw them when they played the Turbine Hall of Tate Modern in 2013 and they were amazing, but it was all 3D specs and about the visuals as much as anything. I'd certainly give them a punt.

    I've been looking at some live videos recently. Not good.

    But...DJ Premier, De La Soul and Wu Tang Clan seem to be fucking excellent live at the moment :thumbs:

    Just booked Damien Dempsey in Liverpool for Paddy's day in March at the 02 for 20 sovs each and also booked Christy Moore in October at the Philharmonic for £48 each.

    Clearly as they get closer to parking their mortal coil these Irish singer song writers think about their piggy banks. First time I saw Christy it cost me a fiver:facepalm::D

    This Box Records all-dayer in Salford in June has an amazing line-up. We should all go.

    Bizarrely, it was only 3/4 full in Sheffield last week, despite being sold out. That other quarter missed a blinder
