Just on Spec 9th of Nov 2010 Golden plains, Blues Fest and The Magnetic fields

November 9, 2010

Hello all

Sorry for the lateness of this update as I have been sick all week and have not been able to update the blog.

It is music festival time of the year and some new announcements have been made on the upcoming Golden Plains and Blues fest gigs.

Golden Plains, held in Victoria Australia, in early march has released its first line up and we at just on Spec think it is a very solid line up. Headlining are three bands, Belle and Sebastion (for all you Twee pop fans), Os Mutantes (Brazilian psychedelic) royalty) and the Hold Steady (Springsteen/The Band inspired American

rock). But the whole line up has some great acts such as HAWKWIND!!!!! (Jesus are these guys still sane after 30 years of mind blowing music and substances), Harp playing princess Joanna Newsome,  Just on Spec favourite Justin Towns Earle, Summer stoner sounds of Wavves and Best coast, Dirty rock n roll with Cosmic Psychos and Airbourne  and some Dunediun indie with The Clean. There are loads more. Learn more here

Blues fest has announced its line up and headling is Bob Dylan. Dod you need to know any more, well if you do there is a whole list here. Just on Spec are very happy to see Tony Joe White, Elvis Costello and Mavis Staples on the bill. And some great Aussie acts also in CW Stoneking and Jeff Lang there also. Worth the investment and learn more here.

Finally, Just on Spec is very happy to see the upcoming movie about The Magnetic Fields (in particular Stephin Merritt). We here are big fans of the epic 69 love songs and are keenly awaiting this Doco (Trailer here)
