Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Yeah, I think that its because you were only allowed to buy the tickets when they were released if you were a VIP member of ticketcorner.com. Totally sucks as now all the 'ticket dregs' are left. Anyhow, I managed to buy 2 tickets for the UK so will be seeing them there.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

I wouldn't mind going to see Gossip tonight at Kaufleuten, but they sold out at starticket, does anyone know if they sell tickets on the door?

I don't want to travel all the way to Zurich and find I can't get in.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

A bit short notice but, tonight I can completely recommend both of the bands that will be playing in the restaurant, if it rains, or just outside on the terrace if it doesn't, at the Rote Fabrik. The bands are, in no particular order, Sein and Attwenga.
Thankyou for your time.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Imperial Tiger Orchestra play the Club at the Theater Spektakel in Zürich Tuesday 18th August, bringing some spooky Ethiopean jazz grooves to the shores of the lake of Zurich. If you weren't in Addis Ababa before 1974, you'll know their music from the Jim Jarmusch film 'Broken Flowers'

Biffy Clyro play the Mascotte in Zurich again on December 5th. They're also supporting Muse at the Hallenstadion on November 18th. A good show

It doesn't work because you aren't using the system correctly.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Martin he is using the system how he would like to use it - please quit with groans because someone disagrees with you.

There are many who no longer benefit from the new system me included - I know a lot of time and effort went into creating the concerts calendar but i feel it is not as effective as the handy gig guide thread we had before. I am finding out about less gigs now because people are just not posting them. It's quick and easy to post on here and many people are short of time and don't wish to create an event.

So please, we know you don't like this method, but we don't like the other method so can we be grown up and not groan the users who would like to carry on down this route?

Bannahead thanks for those 3 updates - I am sure in the old system these would have been announced sooner so I hope there are still tickets left for Temper Trap

Cheers
Nicky

...It's not that we don't wish to creat an event, but we're following previous rules asking us not to create events if we don't intend / sure if we're going. This is a "Heads Up" thread.

On that note, the rather loud and rocking Future of the Left play the Rote Fabrik this coming Sunday 20th. Last time they played there were about 7 people in the Ziegel; one was a waiter, one at the bar, two groupies and me and my two mates A private party!

There're really quite good, despite the crowds...

I agree UM this is why i don't use this calendar event because a) I am unsociable and don't want a crowd tagging along with me at a gig and b) sometimes I find out about a gig want to tell others but may not be going myself

I just don't want to get into the whole gigs head up guide v concerts calendar debate again - there was no happy outcome the last time so why can't each person just do as they wish and post a gig ho they want?

I like this method and it worked for many years and was updated regularly - at least 2 to 3 times a week a new gig would be posted on here and it was always my most favourote thread, it's now died a death and it's a shame

And where do I fit in to that description? I'm still fearful of crossing paths with the FOTL boys after the death look they gave me for buying a bottle of wine at the counter, it was for DaveA I tells ya! Don't think we'll see the likes of a FOTL & Black Mountain "restaurant" gig again soon

Anyways here is my heads up, El Lokal to the rescue in October with varying shades of classy Americana in one hell of a week:

Oct 18 - Mark Eitzel (American Music Club)
Oct 22 - Joseph Arthur (last time I saw him was supporting R.E.M.)
Oct 25 - Richmond Fontaine (Uncut Magazine's favourite story tellers)

Palace in St Gallen is a very good venue. Dont be scared to stand in front of the "seat" people though.

This is your opinion. And you are wrong.

Along with Nicky, I do not want to reopen the whole Zurich Gig Guide versus Calendar discussion because it got boring very quickly. However, I will not be posting any events




Sadly I won't be able to attend The XX gig and I am mightily disappointed.
