Our capital cities have some of the best live music scenes across the world. But I can't experience much of it.

Last Friday night I was played beautiful melodies, awesome bass lines, powerful vocals and gorgeous guitar riffs ... from my computer. I can only look at photos of gigs on band Facebook pages. I watch the lead singer fire up the crowd and hear the audience sing along to the chorus ... on YouTube. I would be there too, singing along with friends and watching the magic that is a live gig. But I'm 16, and across most of Australia I'm not allowed into a gig.
