after what seems like eons, heres a small update.
lotsa stuff going on behind the scenes. best check (and like!) my facebook page or just stay alert.
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.
mile me deaf played a great show at the Sub in Graz yesterday. there were 2 other bands as well, the painted beehive and the decibelles from lyon. both played great shows, the decibelles had a cute french accent, but i didnt shoot any photos because of.. well, lets just blame some foreigners. yes, its becaus of them, they stole my motivation, my camera, my ability to focus properly and what not. so please enjoy those blurry, noisy, out of focus shots of that great show.

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”
here´s a few shots from that, for the full coverage please check out my concert review at the Gap: http://www.thegap.at/musikstories/artikel/rotwein-und-rock/
thanks everybody, feel free to share this post, and feel free to comment here.
having a knee problem sucks. having a knee problem when the first warm and sunny days of spring are coming up pretty much compares to being kidnapped and forced to sleep with your mom while your dad is watching. think about that for a while, then go on reading this blog update.
done? done thinking about your mom? okay.
talking about your mom, here is herwig. herwig is old and grumpy, but beautiful on the inside (see, like mommy.) here he is sliding a 100km/h bs lipslide. yes!
skateboarding is the weirdest thing. people build skateparks for a lot of money in hopes of keeping us there and out of the public, and what do we do? we skate umbrella-stands. for hours.
exhibit a: the perfect spot. ( for viennese skateboarders: insert “oh look how many spots graz has” jokes here.) Continue reading “kaiser.”
shortly after the first spot, it started to rain. so we went and got some wonderful Estrella and wandered the streets of Badalona, looking for spots. and food. we did find spots, but goddamn it, spanish people dont like to work on rainy days. after what felt like walking all the way to great britain on foot, we decided to just buy noodles at a supermarket and cook them at the hostel.
where we decided to order pizza.
have you tried ordering pizza without speaking Catalan? its fun. you yell some english words at your phone, some old guy yells something in catalan, and after 30 minutes of wondering if our order actually came through the pizza arrived. yay.
so, yesterday the amazing Styrian Sounds festival started off at the PPC, including an amazing lineup with the Löve Icons, The Liberation Service and Barrier Reef / The Great and In This Temple, amongst others. I shot photos of those 3. enjoy. or dont. Continue reading “Styrian Sounds.”
