The VinesYou've got the Hives from Sweden who recently played Webster Hall, and then announced a show at Terminal 5 with the Donnas on March 7th, and who then just went ahead and announced they're also playing Music Hall of Williamsburg one day earlier (on sale 2/5 at 12pm). And then you've got The Vines from Australia, who, like at the same moment, announced they were playing Bowery Ballroom on March 17th, and I always get them confused (their names at least). All dates below...

This kinda reads like "The Hives are playing North 6" but then...fuck, they're not.

^That's exactly what I thought. Plus the Hives are playing T5 in April, not August.

I've seen the Vines in concert, and they were awful. Just awful.
And their first album is the most schizophrenic album I've ever heard. Every track was trying to sound like something else. One byrds sounding song, one punk song, one Eagles song. Some of the tracks were good, but it had no flow whatsoever.

Man, Oh man..... I agree the Vines were one of the most dreadful bands I have ever seen live.

Hives were fun but limited viewing before schtick get olds

At least both bands have the dignity to not strip down to their undies on stage, nor do they ironically re-create the worst of 80s "fashion".

Hmmmm, I just checked the MHoW's Web site and it shows that The Hives *are* playing there on that day.

Just to balance this up, I saw The Vines do an amazing gig in Bristol once - absolutely nailed it. Honest!

Then I saw them do one of the worst I've ever seen in Brixton.
