I never did a 'best of' list last year... but if I had to pick my favourite artists for 2009, Florence and the Machine would definitely make the cut.
The xx's reworking of "You've Got The Love" was a constant on my playlist towards the end of the year, and I was crazily excited to hear that they'd been booked for the Laneway Festival.
Until Laneway sold out. Before I could get my tickets. And when I tried to buy sideshow tickets, they were also gone.
If, like me, if you missed out on purchasing your tix before they disappeared... don't despair. Today it was announced that Florence and the Machine are doing one extra show - and it's a secret MySpace show which will kick off their first ever Australian tour.
If you want to head along, you have to register here. Once the secret location details are revealed, they will be sent to your mobile phone and entry works on a first-come-first-served basis… so it might be worth packing your camping gear and grabbing a spot at the front door.
