  1. Can you let me know who did it? The free battery replacement (assuming all goes smoothly) is really good since that seems to always be the first thing to go. The flash drive is in the ipod, so just connect it like normal. The advantage is more capacity, less power usage (so better battery life), and it's more hardy.
  2. Nothing for me either. Maybe just for US-based fans?
  3. So with the sale on I figured it's a good time to get some new roadcase shows. Sounds like LA or Seattle bundles are the best options, but if I only wanted one what would people suggest?
  4. Heard some of these at Bridge. Peace Trail was good, but some was terrible (Terrorist Suicide Hang Gliders) and a lot was mediocre. His problem seems that he can't tell the difference between his good stuff and his rubbish stuff and no one will tell him any more
  5. The FIIO X7 is twice the price of a classic so I wouldn't bill it as inexpensive. I bought one of the second generation x5s and on the positive side the build quality is great (it's a lot bigger than a classic, but that generally doesn't worry me) and it was nice having two micro sd slots, but the interface was pretty bad, it didn't track metadata (which I use pretty extensively to manage my library), and I found the library management options (mediamonkey etc) pretty bad. If all you're looking for is a lot of capacity (and are willing to pay a lot for it), it might be a good option, but I sol
  6. There are lots of options if you're willing to look at people refurbishing on ebay. The refurbishers are taking new ipod classics (or sometimes old ones, which are cheaper but obviously likely to have a shorter life) and replacing the 160gb hard drives with larger ones (mine is 240gb) and sometimes including a larger battery. Even if they don't add a better battery, you get more life from them because the 240gb units are SSD. There's obviously a risk to it, but I've bought three of them. The first lasted about the same amount of time as the old ipod classics and was great. The second one had p
  7. Quite good recording of this show (if I do say so myself) - http://this-was-now.blogspot.co.nz/2016/04/tweedy-powerstation-25-march-2016.html
  8. Plenty of great pics here too http://cheeseontoast.co.nz/2016/03/28/live-photos-of-tweedy-at-powerstation-on-sunday-27-march-2016/

  10. Haven't seen them for a while, but at theatre shows the Hives used to pretty regularly make the crowd sit down with an aisle down the middle of the floor which the singer would then walk down to talk to the crowd.
  11. Sideshows are pretty much guaranteed. Whenever they're only playing Bluesfest they get listed as 'Australian Exclusive' (check out the National and UB40 this year, or Ben Harper last year). There are usually no Brisbane shows because Bluesfest is about two hours away. The only other questions is if they'll make it to NZ, or if they'll just be Sydney and Melbourne shows.
  12. I like it. Fairly true to the original, but not a note for note recreation. Good video too.
  13. Didn't see anyone else posting this - BBC are playing some classic shows from their archives. The next one is Wilco from Glastonbury in '99. It's available for streaming after the show is broadcast, which looks like it's happening today. Here's the wilco link - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04pvjnk. Here's a link to the other episodes as well (includes Bowie and Crowded House) - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00c001r/broadcasts/2014/11
  14. I should have said, I think the issue is why they don't have an opening band. In Australia it was because the shows were at the Opera House and there were rehearsals that prevented an early start. Here I suspect it's that they will play long shows. But the 'Evening with...' moniker is no guarantee (sadly, given I flew to Sydney specifically thinking it did).
  15. On their last Australian tour they played two 'Evening with..' shows. I bumped into John a few days before the first of them and he said that 'Evening with...' means no opener, but nothing more than that. Sure enough the shows were regular length (well, one of them was very short due to a misunderstanding about curfew).
