I've been to a few pretty grouse The Animators gigs, and Ministry of Plenty is sweet af. I also really enjoyed Tired Lion, Gypsy & The Cat's farewell tour, and probably a few other good ones I've forgotten.
Your planned gigs sound pretty exciting! Have you seen any of those bands before?

The Musical Box is coming to California this February. I might dip into savings for that.

Oh, I just remembered I might be seeing one of the Car Seat Headrest Laneway sideshows with my girlfriend while the band's in Melbourne. That should be super neat.

I saw Pinegrove over the summer when they were in Chicago.
That was a road trip well worth it for me.

Went to see Saxon (supported by Sweet Savage) in Dublin at the weekend. Fantastic NWOBHM extravaganza with exemplary showmanship... Saxon's 72 year old frontman delivered more energy than most a third of his age. The opening act Sweet Savage, from Belfast, were also a huge amount of fun... metal aficionados who've dug deep enough will know of them from a certain Metallica B-side (before the wholesome San Francisco act sanitised it, the original contained some, uhm, questionable lyrics...). But Saxon, the main event, were incredible entertainers and drew a huge amount of enthusiasm from a crowd which truly spanned the generations (boomers headbanging alongside gen-Z-ers, who would have thought). They're touring Europe right now, catch them if they pass through your town!
