Low Cost or Free
Chill out to jazz, roll into rock, boogy down to disco, or melt into classical. Whatever taste in music you and your Old Mate have, there'll surely be a gig or concert not too far away.
If you feel like splashing out on your Old Mate (and yourself), a professional touring artist is always guaranteed to impress—especially if you're in a bigger city. But, if you're looking for something cheaper, almost every local pub, mall, or shopping centre will have some kind of free concert. Always keep an eye out for local talent, too. Emerging artists are not only often cheaper to see, but the talent level can be off the charts.
You can also use the Music Discography activity as a precursor to learn and introduce each other to a new style of music or artist.
· Head down to your local pub and ask them when their next live band is.
· Triple J Unearthed is a great way to discover emerging Aussie artists who might just be performing near you soon.
· TimeOut has the latest on gigs and entertainment.
· Ticketmaster is an especially handy one-stop-shop for tix if you're in a big city.
