05.11.2009 - Moby at Volkshaus

I like the recent albums but I'm not sure how it will work live.

Girls in Zürich

It's a good week for indie music in Zürich with Au Revoir Simone on Tuesday and Yacht last night (which was great!).

This evening Girls are playing at Exil.

They have an interesting personal history, having grown up in the Children of God cult, being heavily involved with drugs and being adopted by a billionaire . . . or something.

The music is psychedelic, influenced by the Beach Boys and shoegaze.

Unfortunately they started at 11.30 which was a bit late for a school night, so I decided against it.

In other news . . . Patrick Wolf is playing at Mascotte on Wednesday. Anyone going? Or want to go? If you are it would be nice to meet up . . . PM me.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

It would seem that The Joy Formidable are supporting The Temper Trap.

Check out the video here http://thejoyformidable.com/

How can you not love this band.

Not definitively but I can say the stage diagrams /architect plans have been drawn up (see this post), permission for a concert at Dubendorf Airfield has been granted, and I would expect a concert date sometime in the first half of September 2010 to be announced in the next week or two.

Wolfmother [Zurich]

...are playing at the Volkhaus on 28.01.10...(I know I know, that's ages away, but being in CH...)

I think tickets are around CHF50 , but you'll get excellent riffage for your frank, and the support is sure to be good....



You know it makes sense!

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Ian Brown is playing at Abart in Zurich on the 18th January. Tickets are now available.

Should be a great gig if he manages to keep out of trouble with the dibble between now and then.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

I just hope that he doesn't get bottled like the last time he played Rohstofflager.

Ian went offstage for a break, the roadies were switching out the Fender guitars and bringing the Gretsches onstage. This suggests the likelihood of an encore filled with Stone Roses songs. He wasn't offstage for more than 3 minutes and the idiots behind started throwing filled cups of beer towards the stage, coating us in the front row and the instruments on stage. They were asked to stop, but the continued. The lights came on the, the roadies got all the gear off stage and the Ian didn't come back on to play an encore that would have included a bunch of Roses tracks , (as indicated on the setlist i collected)

I really hope the Abart crowd are a bit more sensible.
