And make sure you get there early enough for The Joy Formidable. They may be the better band.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Last night was one of, if not THE best live gig I have ever heard, barring a couple of sound issues.

Joy Formidable were good, 'nothing special', but Temper Trap? Oh my god, the hairs on my neck were standing on end, they were simply electrifying... and everyone I was with thought so too. Simply mind-blowing, and they are going to be one of the biggest bands of 2010 without a doubt.

Awesome, awesome night. My lady friends got to chat to the Joy Formidable women too but I didn't get chance, though she was hanging round by the stairs all night. Too distracted by the fitfitfit rock chicks that go there for every gig.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Yeah pretty good concert. Temper Trap Rocked!
Was pleasantly surprised by Joy Formidable as well.

Only dampener was that they only played for an hour and then just buggered off without an encore...

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Absolutely gutted to miss The Joy Formidable! REALLY like them and wish I paid more attention to this thread! Cradle is one of my most favourite songs of this year and was very probably listening to it on the train back from Zürich when they were on stage last night. Mikey is a sad panda!!

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Totally surprised by how good Temper Trap were. I like the CD but was expecting them to try and reproduce it live having seen a few videos. But they had a much more rocky sound which worked really well. The singers voice almost breaks on the high notes though. Yes they should have played an encore but I suppose they don't have enough material yet.

It was a real shame that The Joy Formidable had electrical problems. Hopefully they will come back real soon. And the live CD will be in my letter box any day now.

Yeah I forgot to mention that... it seemed REALLY short. All of us were left begging for more and we felt a little short-changed at the end, and I was really geared up for more.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

Yeah I was really geared up after they played "Science of Fear".
Too bad it just finished after that.

Re: Switzerland Gigs "Heads Up"

That was indeed one quality gig last night. Thought both bands were excellent. Temper Trap's music really does come into it's own when you hear it live, and thought the lead singer of Joy Formidable had a great stage presence...she seemed really nice too when i chatted to her later in the night (well, she at least listened to my drunken ramblings politely so that's good enough for me!). And despite the technical glitch during the Joy Formidable's set, really liked Abart as a venue.

Here's hoping both bands come back to Zurich sometime in 2010.

Yep my favourite song by far. My mate apparently was talking to the lead singer afterwards and said that "it was a great gig, except I was expecting more". Typical swiss efficient language skills there
