Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum, so please bear with me, at least for a while. I was thinking to create a group on Meetup for people that go to concerts in Zurich, and perhaps want to go with someone else or bigger crowd.Would anyone be interested to join?

I'm thinking (next few months) :

26.03 Damien Jurado (el Local)
31.03 Olafur Arnalds (moods)
02.04 Veronica Falls (Mascotte)
28.04 Bowerbirds (el Local)
29.04 Laura Gibson (el Local)
06.06 Tortoise (moods)

If sth like that already exist let me know of course, i might have missed it.

Sounds like a good idea, this thread isn't a good way of organising social events.

The Bad Bonn Kilbi lineup is pretty damn good, especially the Saturday: Afghan Whigs, Mudhoney, and Lee Ranaldo.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Canadians Unit!

Hey Rosetta! is playing at Parterre in Basel on April 7th!

For anyone who hasn't heard this Canadian gem, they are highly acclaimed and having seen them in concert back in Manitoba, they are amazing live.

Hello and welcome to the Forum. You can post concert events on the mysteriously invisible* Concerts Calendar or under Social Events (Commercial Events if you're a promoter or financially involved).

Putting a concert / event on the calendar gives it greater exposure and allows for some 'buzz' (is this what the kids call it these days?).

Also, you can set up a Social Group here. This particular thread can be hard work to get overview, so lead from the front!

*Must look into why it doesn't show under the Events icon

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

this is a 'wee bit early but if there are any Diana Krall fans out there she will be playing Lucerne in November ( she just sent me an email to let me know )

and hopefully there will be a couple more Swiss dates showing up.

HUGE fan here!!! I saw them in the Hollywood Bowl in LA when they had just published Splendor in the Grass, and they had Ari Shapiro on stage as special guest - I will never forget that concert!!!

I'll check if I am free then - I would love to see them again.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

The Concerts calendar is now added to the Events menu - thanks Editor Bob.

As it's tricky getting overview of posts made in this thread perhaps consider adding a concert to the concerts calendar if you intend going as this may encourage others and it'll build our social opportunities.

Lambchop play Kaufleuten in Zurich tonight. As I'm not attending - sad - I won't post it on the calendar, but were I to be going...

Keep on rockin' in the free world.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

As I understand it you need to make ten posts beforehand although it's such a dusty corner of the Forum I'm not sure. Have another try once your post count reaches 10...

Earth at Le Romandie were fantastic last night, Dylan Carlson is incredibly charismatic. They were ably supported by O Paon and Mount Eeerie.
