Status Quo + The Screaming Jets @ BCC 11-03-10

March was very much a month of nostalgia; mainly a trip back to the early Nineties with shows by Pavement, Pixies and Massive Attack but also with a Status Quo show, which I guess for me is more like a trip back to the early/mid Eighties.  I’d never seen the band so it was very […]

Pixies @ Brisbane Convention Centre 18-03-10
