The Bats, The Puddle AND David Kilgour live in your house

Three of my - and yours, I've no doubt - favourite acts are having their Nov 7 Dunedin gig filmed for overseas folk, who can buy tickets for a highlights package.

I've not seen The Puddle or David Kilgour live and would desperately love to. I've got a hunch that the highlights of the gig might be best decided by the audience rather than the bands; the finer details have yet to be confirmed, but you can find more information and buy tickets here.

There was much speculation a few years ago about streaming gigs being a valid replacement for actually going to gigs. The reality turned out to be for a lot of people that going to gigs became their main way of consuming - or at least paying for - music; not least, I suspect, because on a small scale gigs were a social for message board folk and on a larger scale the biggest-selling acts tended to be guitar acts with an older fan base who could afford to pay for the very high ticket costs and the big bands, deprived of some sales revenue from illegal downloads, made decent earnings from touring.
