Live Wire Apparel's votes for the Triple J Hottest 100 are in!
This was especially tricky this year, but here's my votes ... There are so many artists who should be on this list! BUT, I have made this list about who I have seen play live and who I really wished I'd seen live.
- Kingswood was one of my favourite live gigs of 2017, so they were first on the list.
- I've not seen Ali Barter play live (her gig at Sirromet sold out too quickly!), but Cigarettes earned my number one song pick for last year, as it is my most played song on iTunes.
- Saw BF play twice in one week in Brisbane - this man has no limit to his talent!
- Didirri and Thandie were my stand outs at Big Sound in Brisbane
- Amy Shark + Caiti Baker are just phenomenal
- I've seen Ben Salter play too many times to mention, but his song Isolationism really touches me; and
- Gang of Youths & The Belligerents, hell, they are AMAZING - and took out my top 2 most listed to tunes on Spotify last year. (BUT they have to stop playing the night before my ocean swims .. I can't see them play live if they keep doing that!)
Sadly, one of the Sydney bands I listen to a lot online didn't make the list. I went and saw them play twice last year but their live shows were ... well, completely crap - sorry guys!
