We're due to be moving out to Melbourne early next year and I'm just interested in finding out some more about the live music scene - which I have heard is very good! Being from Brighton in the UK we're pretty spoiled for choice with the number and variety of gigs that are on most nights of the week. One of the benefits I guess is the 'compact' nature of the city meaning there's a city's worth of venues etc within very easy reach - I presume this is less applicable to Melbourne given the size difference! We spent some time there last year and fell in love with the place - it definitely has the same arty/fun feel of Brighton but on a much larger scale so I am sure there are plenty of opportunities for enjoyment before the OH starts hassling me for kids :err: Are there any other gig lovers out there? If so, any tips or suggestions as to the best venues, festivals etc or even the best areas of Melbourne to look to move to which would give us the best access to music venues? We're quite eclectic when it comes to music - anything ranging from indie to folk, to bluegrass through to more electronic stuff and even, dare I say it, the re-emergence of 80s style pop that seems to be hitting the UK :wacko:. Not sure how much of this stuff is current in Oz at the moment but half the fun will be finding out and discovering some new stuff - we love new music. At this stage we're pretty flexible with our plans and we're looking to have a fun couple of years (at least) in Melbourne whilst still late 20s/early 30s so it would be great to get some insider knowledge from current residents to help us along the way :biggrin: Thanks all and have a great weekend!
