This was only the second time that I've been to see a concert at Riverstage.
The other time I was here to see a bunch of my favourite bands play was a couple of years ago, in fact it was in "The Year of the Dragon" coincidentally enough.
And I was born in "The Year of the Dragon"also.

and know very little about it, but as I often say,
whatever floats your boat.
Night Visions a few years ago and it is the only CD that will play reliably on my faulty car CD player,so I'm often forced to listen to it when I go on long drives to Byron Bay and such,so the album has become part of the soundtrack in my life of many a happy drive.
I got into Imagine Dragons when I saw their
"I'm on Top of the World" video.
When I asked Rodney Ascher whether he was familiar with the band
Imagine Dragons he replied that he wasn't but that he knew the actor in the clip who plays Stanley Kubrick.
This is a great nod to Room 237 and Kubrick films.

And it's the same when it comes to Imagine Dragons, just when I think they couldn't surprise me any more,they come out singing a Midnight Oil cover of
Beds are Burning during the concert...
apparently only the third time they have played it in concert.
I don't have a clip of their Brisbane performance of Beds are Burning, which was much better in my opinion than the performance below in this You Tube of the Melbourne concert, which was their first live go at it.

Which kind of reminded me of Joe Alexander's latest sync video where he talks about touching the screen (of your cell phone) at about the nine minute mark onward.

or should that be their (indigenous people of Australia) shore?-)
