Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Mod Insert: Please skip to Page 37 for 2012 concerts. Can't be bothered siphoning off all the higgedly piggedly gigs splattered around for different dates.

Thanks for your understanding.

Original Post follows:

---

(And you will know us by the) Trail of Dead - Sunday May 10th at Mascotte.

Greenday - November 8th Hallenstadion.

Switzerland Gig Guide

Well here goes....

For chitter and chatter about gigs up and coming to run along side the wonderfully implemented calendar events and for the numpty simpletons like me who prefer the old fashioned way

hopefully this will replace Jot's great 'Zurich Gig Guide' from the past - but will please all the unfortunate bumpkins that live outside the canton of Zurich

Re: Zurich Gigs "Heads Up"

Why is it that some people have so much difficulty dealing with change?

IMO This thread is pointless and selfish.

Re: Zurich Gigs "Heads Up"

I was sure I was going to get groans for that and they will all be from people living in or around Zürich...

When in real life a small group of people sharing the same interests (for example Zürich inhabitants, blondes, Audi TT owners, whatever...) joins up with a bigger group (for example Switzerland inhabitants, ladies who like to dye their hair, Audi owners...), you can then tell them a 1000 times that it doesn't make sense them staying together in their small group, that they should open up to the other people...If they don't want to change they won't.

Re: Zurich Gigs "Heads Up"

The latest album is really good. Check out the website http://www.primalscream.net/NEWindex.html

We now have tickets as well.



I am also wondering about the Delilahs at Kaufleuten on 13th August.

I found it because I actually live in Zurich and am registered to this thread.

But why should a Primal Scream fan who does not live in Zurich have to wade through 10 pages of Zurich concerts to discover that his favourite band is going to play in Switzerland?

If you want to keep this thread fair enough but please also add the events to the Concerts Calendar!

Who let you in? Anyways, this thread is far more pointless and selfish, it's only for Zurich Stadt

True but we should also have a "This poster is being selfish" button that would be worth 10 groans.

Why register to something that seems to cause you so much angst

Anyone only using this "Heads Up" thread or the EF concert guide is going to miss out on plenty of things they might like anyway. It contains a mere fraction of what is going on. Compare it to a comprehensive gig guide eg http://www.last.fm/events , http://www.moonwalk.ch/ etc

Real gig guides exists elsewhere, so I certainly can't be bothered replicating them on EF. Call me selfish if you must, but it only caters for those who like to be.....
