2015 is off to a slow start but things are about to explode exploded in February with 2 3 gigs in quick succession and a few more lined up for the rest of the year. Things kicked off with the Radio Rock Cruise on 31st January / 1st February.
From then the next date is February 14th. This is “friends day” in Finland, not Valentines Day, so what would make more since than going to see Amaranthe with my girl friend Colin in downtown Helsinki?
2014 has been a somewhat mediocre year of live music for me. It started off very well with Simple Minds in January, but there haven’t really been that many really great gigs this year. However, here are my top 3 live bands I’ve seen this year from the list of possible “winners”.
After years of using paid music services such as Spotify, 2014 turned out to be a year where I bought more albums that probably the last five years combined. We are not talking high volume here so you could say that I’ve still been pretty selective in my purchasing.
