Caitlin Rose is playing @ Komplex 26.02.11
ahem Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"


Anyway. She was fantastic.

It was my first time at Komplex. And it's tiny. I was expecting somewhere a bit bigger than abart but I think it's actually smaller. Although it does have a higher ceiling which helps with the sound.

Smaller than Abart?! Mmkay, explains why QOTSA sold out so quickly.

I'm sad that I missed her

The Komplex venue can be rearranged for bigger shows. The walls are all moveable - actually it's a huge space. That's why it can accommodate bigger acts like QOTSA, My Chemical Romance, Interpol etc etc as well as the smaller ones (Phoenix Foundation, Caitlin Rose) I think the capacity is up to 5000.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Looks like British Sea Power have cancelled their March European tour, including the Abart gig on the 09.03.11.

Not sure why....but Noble cracked a rib at the last gig. Bummer!

Gigs will hopefuly be re-scheduled for later in 2011.

Yep, it is planned to be re-scheduled ... or at least that is the plan so far. Fingers crossed!

I bought The Boy With The Arab Strap when it first came out on vinyl but never really got into it. Then late last year I bought the latest and love it. Since then I have bought all of the CD's so I hope I'm not disappointed but I think they will be better indoors than out. And it should have a totally different vibe to a festival.

When you think they started as a college project, they've come far from the days of playing King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow.

I've seen them a few times and they always deliver, but can get a little twee. At one show at the Rote Fabrik they covered Dire Straits' Romeo and Juliet. Hmm. Since Isobel Campbell left, so did the darker elements. Still worth seeing though

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Noise fans, Our Love Will Destroy the World (NZ) is playing tomorrow (sun March 6th, 9pm), in Geneva, at Cave 12.

I was curious myself, saw this performer from New Zeland 3 days ago in Prague and he blew my mind. Plus, he is a really cool dude, high school prof on his sabatical touring the world with his musical mission. He is quite big in his field, so far on this tour he has played in UK, Scandinavia, CZ, FR, after CH he is going to Japan. Just a note for the gentle souls amongst us, bring ear plugs (just in case the sound guy sucks ).

It's short and sweet, very intense and a ton of dizzy fun. We are going.
