The Phoenix Foundation @ Komplex 18.02.11

Cool Kiwis The Phoenix Foundation are hitting Zurich at Komplex (www.komplex457.ch) on Friday 18.02.11...so I'll be there to show them some home-grown support. Anyone else?

Shameless self-promotion: I have a Zurich music blog (http://highrotation.ch) and I have some free tix to give away for the gig if anyone is interested?

I'm gutted! I love the phoenix foundation and only just saw this
Were they amazing? (I'm slightly hoping you'll tell me they were rubbish...)

Re: The Phoenix Foundation @ Komplex 18.02.11

they were great...but if it's any consolation there were major sound problems with the PA system at the venue, with the speakers degenerating into an awful ear-ripping Black Noise of Death (which blew out the microphones) every so often. They valiantly struggled on through, though. Ended on a semi acoustic 'Nest Egg' - lovely. Sorry you missed it! Don't worry, they will be back, sometime.

Sounds wonderful (except the black noise of death... not so wonderful).
Glad it was a good one, though still a bit green with envy.
I'm hoping to get along to some gigs soon... just learning to find where to get the best info at the moment!

Re: The Phoenix Foundation @ Komplex 18.02.11

Thanks! Both look excellent - goldmines of gig info
p.s if you're not already going, i thoroughly recommend Belle&Sebastian. I've never seen such an array of instruments on one stage at once, all being used!

Re: The Phoenix Foundation @ Komplex 18.02.11

^ Belle & Sebastian - of course I am going! They have been a favourite of mine since the 'Tigermilk' days. I loved them at Zurich Open Air. A pity they are playing at X-Tra (that soulless place) - Plaza would have been so much nicer. But oh well, I'll take what I can get.
Maybe we should have a EF meet-up?

Re: The Phoenix Foundation @ Komplex 18.02.11

Good plan! EF gig-going group
All the venues are new to me... i only got here a few weeks ago so don't know soulless from soulful yet.
I'm going to check out those lists and get booking!
