Ho nearly forgot

OMD. Manchester
OMD. York

Couldn't believe that Depeche Mode are playing Manchester the same night as the lads...Well it saved me some money anyway.
I'd write and tell you that I've burnt them all.

But you never send me your address and I've.

I've kept them anyway.

I'm ridiculously excited that I have a ticket to see LCD Soundsystem in November.

Well if Little Miss 11A can mention bands we Brits have never heard of, then surely it is my duty to reciprocate
My Life Story (22nd July in Brighton). They are supporting Sleeper and it is a weekend gig so a round trip is planned, including a welcome catch-up with a London-based pal the morning afterwards
Alicia Witt (23rd and 24th July in Glasgow then Edinburgh and maybe 28th July in London). She is more famous for her acting skills (she started of at the age of 4 in the movie Dune - remember that?) but her piano playing is truly incredible
Nina (27th August in Glasgow). No, not her with those 99 Red Balloons. Nina is electro pop with an incredible amount of style
Nerina Pallot (30th August in London). A pledge-only album launch gig. Unmissable
Nerina Pallot (14th November in Glasgow). Her Glasgow shows are her best
Boohoohoo (1st September in Glasgow). You just knew I was going to mention them! Their album launch gig. Again, unmissable
Jess And The Bandits (12th September in Glasgow). Amazingly infectious Country music - yee-har!
Sister John (14th September in Glasgow). Their album launch gig. I think you are starting to see a trend here
Bill Nelson (28th October in Leeds). His album launch gig. Mind you, I think this is his 103rd album release. Yes, 103!
And last but by no means least Nothing But Thieves (7th November in Glasgow). They are ably supported by July Talk who are astounding live too so this is a superb billing. Miss it if you dare

Bill Nelson?! Americans can only dream. So he has 103 albums then? I lost count after about 37, but I have the vast majority up to about 1992. Of course, it was later when he really put his foot on the album accelerator! Many of the later albums are multi-disc boxed sets!

• Escort - Asheville, NC - Aug. 5
• King Crimson - Raleigh, NC - Oct 26

I am thrilled to see Escort again. Their 2014 Moogfest concert was one of the most exciting hours of my life. That they are playing a free city festival doesn't hurt, though I would have rather paid for a sweaty, intense club experience again!

I have been waiting for three years for the new 8-man, 3-drummer King Crimson lineup to come within striking distance. I just bought my tickets today and I'm thrilled. Just knowing that I will finally hear Robert Fripp playing his iconic "Heroes" solo at last live was icing on the cake. Hearing material like "Cirkus" and "21st Century Schizoid Man" that was never played in the 90s/00s when my previous KC concerts were is what gets my pulse racing.

• Sept 25 - The Church
• Sept 29 - Zola Jesus

I had not seen The Church since they toured with Tom Verlaine and Peter Murphy in 1988. Looking forward to seeing them again for the first time in 29 years! The Quietus exalts Zola Jesus, so I rightly looked into it and liked what I sampled on iTunes. Yet another show at The Mothlight, a club which this year has become my #1 concert destination.

We saw them last year in Atlanta. I think you're in for a treat. :)

Actually, no. Due to "bass fracking" my wife and friends left about 6 songs in. We detest bone-rattling bass frequencies. It would be expected if we were seeing dubstep bands! Live sound engineering in the 21st century is even worse than music mastering these days with "loudness wars" conspiring to make us as uncomfortable as possible. It's maddening. The show was otherwise well mixed. One could understand every utterance by Steve Kilbey clearly, and yet bass frequencies were rattling our bones the whole time. These are dark times but we are unafraid to walk out on shows where this happens [Kraftwerk, John Cale] no matter how much we paid to attend.

I'm going to go see Misterwives this coming week, then in November I'll see Sheppard, perhaps The Maine, and also LCD Soundsystem. Should be fun!

Okay, so who else have I booked for this year?
100 Fables (24th November in Glasgow) their EP launch
Louise Connell (26th November in Glasgow) as a support act but so worth seeing
PVRIS (27th November in Glasgow) an experiment
Sinny (30th November in Glasgow) supporting Kerri Watt. Sinny is a superb songwriter
Pumarosa (2nd December in Glasgow) an experiment too
Elle Exxe (3rd December in Glasgow) she is so energetic
L-Space and the amazing Life Model (6th December in Glasgow) two great bands one the one bill
Eat Fast (7th December in Glasgow) a superb band from Newcastle
Medicine Men (8th December in Edinburgh) see, I do go to Edinburgh gigs too!
Emma Stevens (9th December in Glasgow) unmissable, even as a support act
Medicine Men (15th December in Glasgow) Worth seeing many times
BooHooHoo (16th December in Dunfermline) no gig list of mine is complete without a BooHooHoo gig
My Life Story (22nd December in London) I like them and I like gigs in London! My Christmas treat?
Sunburst Deluxe (29th December in Wakefield) I missed them last time. I will not miss them this time

So, Mr. Crown...assuming that you're actually going to make it to all of those gigs, what is your gig count for the year 2017?

It is currently 165 so far this year and anticipated to be 184 but that does tend to change as gigs occasionally cancel but, more likely, I find more good ones to go to!
