...and the awesome Anna Calvi is playing at Kaufleuten, ZH, 25.10.11 (really, don't miss her!):

We rarely read reviews after the event on this thread, so I'll keep it brief: It was very good Support act François & The Atlas Mountains had some interesting beats but strange, Eno-esque dance moves, which were a bit theatrical, but in all very West Coast French dance melancholia. Anna Calvi's voice is a joy to hear. Nuff said.

Oh Hai GastroGnome! I tried to grab ya but you had more beauties surrounding you than I did, so I didn't want to steal your thunder

I was there too! I'll be writing a review soon (on my blog, though, will post a link), just haven't had a moment. We should do a meet up at the next suitable gig, what do you think?

Used to? What happened? Musical epiphany? Knock on the head?
So what do you like now?

Just to stay on topic:

Instead I'll post something constructive instead:

Howling Bells tomorrow at Papiersaal

and your week is nicely rounded off by

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

I'd love to say The Kills were great last night, but due to the appalling sound at X-tra, it's hard to say.

Not the first time either - I'm not going to waste my hard earned on that venue anymore.

Were you upstairs or downstairs?

I find if you are right in the middle upstairs the sound is not so bad.

next days' schedule:

tomorrow: work, drive to zürich, gig, drive back
thursday: train to lausanne, work, gig, sleep
friday: drive back, work
saturday: drive to zürich, vive la fete gig
sunday: drive back, probably spend day on sofa

I was bang in the middle, about a foot behind the sound desk. Logically I would have thought the best place for sound in the venue...
