  • Eh. Where's the Cleveland Orchestra when you need 'em?
    If I were dead, could I do this?
  • Went to the Eurosonic festival last thursday and friday.
    Highlights were Rökkurró, Young Karin, Isaac Delusion, Kiasmos, My Bubba and Soldier's Heart.
    But the absolute best and biggest surprise for me was the 18 year old Norwegian Aurora Aksnes.
    Didn't know her but she just blew me away with her wonderful voice, songs and charm.
    The venue was packed and everyone was silent during songs (which is kind of rare at a Festival gig).
    Music-wise she made me think of Lykke Li, Emma Louise, Anna Ternheim, Ellie Goulding and Emiliana Torrinni.

    Lucky enough WDR Rockpalast were filming the gig and already put one of the songs on their site: http://www1.wdr.de/fernsehen/kultur/rockpalast/videoliveauroraaksnesawakening100-videoplayer.html

  • Well, we saw Curtis Stigers (@curtisstigers on twatter) and I have to say, he, and his band were f*cking awesome !  The band were tighter than acute vaginismus and Curtis was so smooth; well, he was like an egg wrapped in teflon and dipped in lube !  Witty between songs, with some great tales about his life and career, who he has worked with, wrote songs with etc, and then this fantastic set of songs; some his own, others standards, all delivered with aplomb and great virtuosity.
    He is on a short tour of the country in Feb doing small venues.  £28 well spent on a ticket.  if you like a bit of Jazz/country/soft rock fusion, go see them, you will not be disappointed.
    He sat out in the foyer afterwards, signing autographs, having his picture taken.  A true gentleman and a pleasure to spend the evening in his company.

    OK. Gigs up.  I am on Twitter now ( sigh). Visit Changeling_1

  • I saw La Roux on Tuesday, which was great but every time she plays I get a cold. *cough*. Damn.
  • To be fair: She is a bit of an ice-queen, isn't she?
