We all love to talk about music.

Do we have a live music thread? We do now.

We’re off to see Alabama 3 in Brighton tonight. Not seen them before but should be a great night.

What concerts do you have planned?

We’ve got a who are you going to see list somewhere though not just for live music.

Levellers acoustic gig coming up, it was postponed for a couple of months as the drummer’s son got hit and killed by a bus !

Within Temptation later in the year.

Nightwish have just announced some UK shows so I’ll probably go to one.

Swimming Tapes next month in Brighton. Ticks all the boxes for me, band on the up, small room, fiver a ticket. I come out in hives if I have to spend eighty quid to stand in some soulless cavernous hangar with thousands of other people & watch a band on jumbotrons because they're half a mile away.

I'm with you. I much prefer small venues. Saw Numan at the Middlesbrough Empire, and was prolly no more than fifteen metres away from the whole band. Thirty quid. Didn't buy his merch, though; got the support band's shirt instead (Nightmare Air). Numan wanted 65 quid for a hoodie!

I haven't been to a gig for years, but I'm definitely in this camp too.

I once saw GWAR at Newcastle Riverside for about £5. I was so close to the 'action' I had to throw my clothes away afterwards because so much of the performance got on me.

Horses for courses. If you're into The Stones, Foos etc. you don't really have much of a choice. Luckily for me, being a wet blanket indie fan gives all sorts of opportunities to see bands for peanuts. Often as not, you get to have a beer with a fair few of them too. It's a decent scene in that sense.

A few highlights would be chewing the fat with Bernard Butler in his Trans EP shows, KT Tunstall for £2 the week after she'd been on Jools Holland, C Duncan for £3, Ex-Magician a few times, ending up on a pub crawl with those boys last time they were in town & The Bluetones which ended with a few of us partying in their hotel & kipping on their floor for the night . Happy days.

Vee gee, vee gee. Not very loud, which was surprising. But then the gig I was at previous was Mastodon in Newcastle, which was very loud indeed.

Well, Alabama 3 were superb. Must see them again some time.

Regarding prices, the £20 for last night and similar when we saw Royal Trux at the same place, The Concord 2 on the beach in Brighton, really doesn’t seem bad value. They also had some rather cool T shirts too for 20 notes.

I love that room. Apart from the poles holding up the ceiling, obvs. Great place to see a band.
