with the rise of trump, and generally far right powers all over the world i thought to myself “what can i do to prevent this?”. sure enough, the only solution could only be a new blog entry. it has become obvious that my lack of said posts and rise of negative political powers is closely linked.
so here are my shots of yesterdays show at musichouse. thanks to Deadends, Igel vs Shark and Antimanifest, it was a blast!
so, last few days have been pretty packed. first spring festival graz, then off to croatia to lighthouse festival, then back to my roots, switching from electronic music to guitars and entering the dark, sweaty, smoke filled catacombs of Musichouse. but it all was worth it.
missed the first band due to me not being able to read the time properly. sorry guys.
the amazing all-star combo Barrier Reef/The Great played its first show in quite some time, and it was intense. hopefully the crowd is gonna appreciate that next time. to be fair, it was tuesday and goddamn steaming in there.
next up were Despite Everything, whose energy and fun on stage was only trumped by their amazing mustaches. great evening, no complaints here.
check out those bands. send me money. be kind to each other.
i think i already covered this on this blog once or twice, but its always great to be reminded that theres nothing better than a concert in a steamin hot and humid place when its already too warm outside. yesterday was no exception. the amazing BHF , Petrol Girls and Remedy played a show at the Sub Graz.
BHF somewhat reminded me of the likes of Have Heart, but i am terrible at all things music related so maybe i am completely wrong. loved their show. The Petrol Girls played great Riot Grrrls inspired punkrock, but i had to go outside after 3 songs because it was simply too warm. kudos to the bands that played in that heat. sadly, i didnt take any photos during those first 2 bands because i was waaay to busy acting like a cool guy and looking good, or short: i suck. at least listen to a few songs of those 2 great bands. next time you see me, feel free to slap me. then again, if you look at my crappy photos you might as well be relieved.
Remedy played an amazing show all around, but the 2 bonus songs blew everyone away: both featured great guest singers, first one was “i believe in a thing called love” by the darkness, second one “decaptacon” by le tigre. goddamn that was great.
sorry for my incredibly noisy/dark/blurry shots, blame my old ass camera. if you wanna see better shots, better send me some money. or hatemail. fine with both.
do you know the best part of summer? thats right, being squeezed in hot, humid, loud places and listening to bands while losing 2/3rds of your body weight in sweat.
at least thats what happened yesterday during the amazing Savanah and Güacho concert.
i was thinking about making a joke about the recent vote in styria, nazis and a argentinian band playing in austria, but hey, the simpsons already covered that. kinda. so just watch that episode where they call hitler in argentina, and go on with your lives.
the show was damn great, and i took a … experimental approach with my photos.
experimental of course means even shittier than usual.
check those bands out.
soo, there was a pretty damn intense thunderstorm going on yesterday.
now, having the always entertaining topic of weather out of the way lets move on to more important things. concerts, for example!
yesterday a great one happened to be at the Explosiv Graz.
it was the first show of the amazing Super Sonic Silver Haze, and it was a blast!
The Scarabeusdream had a energetic live show that one wouldnt expect from 2 dudes with a drumset and a piano.
Zeni Gava were exactly what one would expect from a japanese band – fast, chaotic, and technical.
Zu were weird, loud and fast. gotta love it.
all in all a great evening, big thank you to the organizers!
photos below, enjoy! Continue reading “SuperSonicSilverHaze / The Scarabeusdream / Zeni Geva / ZU”

i am kinda trying to think of some kind of funny, intelligent intro, but as usual my brain lets me down.
so there you go, look at the photos of your favourite bars barkeepers band (musichouse) playing at another bar with other bands.
that sentence made total sense in my head.
