Amy McDonald + Support @ Tempodrom - Berlin(DE)




Posted: 2012-11-12 23:34:10

Amy McDonald @Tempodrom / Berlin

We heard Amy MacDonald very often at summer vacation the summer and year before and when I saw she will be on tour I asked my whole family if they like to go. So I ordered tickets for all of us and this would be the first big concert for our chilfren.

It was a rainy Monday and a normal working day, too. We talked about where to meet because I was coming directly from my working place at Wolfsburg to the Tempodrom.

I was the first of our Family there so enough time to give away my working equipment (computer pack) for the whole gig. After some more min. the rest of my family came in. We ordered something to drink and than we were looking for our places. It was no good place - upper left almost parallel to the stage but enough to see and to listen. Kids were very excited.



KMFDM + Support (Pakt) @ K17 - Berlin(DE)

Once again I asked Judit from The Netherlands, if she wanted to see KMFDM in Berlin. And well, she said yes, so I bought the tickets before. We met 1/2 hour before the official start of the gig.

Arriving there 45 min later we first ordered something to drink, were sitting outside and talked about the people (uhh they are looking so dangerous with their outfit) and much more things, so in the end we missed the opener Pakt. The sound which was coming out when someone was opening the door sounded boring so it was a good desicion.



Georgette Dee & Terry Truck @ Tipi am Kanzleramt - Berlin(DE)

Georgette Dee & Terry Truck @Tipi / Berlin

This was a Birthday present for my wife. We know Georgette Dee and Terry Truck for a very long time - saw them the first time in 1990(?) and than 10 years later. When I was ordering the tickets I didn't realize that the European championship already's started and Germany is playing that evening.

So when we went there by bike more and more soccer-fans were coming in our direction. The Tipi is only some hundred meters behind the fan mile and it was difficult to arrive there.



The Sunpilots @ Arcanoa - Berlin(DE)

The SunPilots @Arcanoa / Berlin

It seems a little bit like The Sunpilots got to be my secret music favorite. This was now my fifth gig with The Sunpilots in 10 month and I still got good vibrations with them.

Today - once again - they played at Arcanoa where I have seen them the first time.

When I was coming home from work at 8 pm I was totally tired and slept a little bit until 9:30 pm, got some coffee and checked at facebook when they would start to play.

I left my home short after 10 pm and arrived there 10 min later. They didn't start to play - still talking with guests and friends and I had a little talk with Raj and Justin about their last gig there and at Ex'n'Pop - the best gig of them so far. I also was welcomed by Bob and Tom.

The SunPilots @Ex'n'Pop / Berlin

What a week!!!

My schedule plan for this week was like every evening - except Monday - is booked for some special occasion. Friday night was planned for The Sunpilots. When I was coming home from work at 8 pm I didn''t know if I should go. So I asked Bob, Justin and Raj via Facebook at which time they will start to play. Some minutes later I got the first reply - for that kind of info I like Facebook - that they will be delayed and maybe start to play around Midnight. So I had enough time to relax for it.



Peter Gabriel & New Blood Orchestra 2012 @ O2 World - Berlin(DE)

Peter Gabriel & New Blood Orchestra at O2 World / Berlin

Already in January I got a newsletter from the German Genesis Fanclub that Peter Gabriel would be on tour in May and they get special tickets for the show. So I ordered two tickets (thanks Christian from Fanclub) - got them in March and I knew that we would be in the second line before the stage and that I would see him again after 25 years (my first Berlin gig in 1987).

Before Gabriel and the Orchestra started to play he introduced one of his female singers who sang two songs supported by piano. They were staying on the stage before the big security fence which opened immediately when she was leaving the stage.

The stage was full of video installations where motives concerning to the songs were shown.

Peter Gabriel and the Orchestra started to play with the Bowie classic "HEROES" followed by "WALLFLOWERS" and some other songs which I didn't know by name but from the lyrics and melody. In the middle of the show he played his hits from the "SO" record like "MERCY STREET" and "RED RAIN" followed by "SOLSBURY HILL".



Groundation @ C-Club - Berlin(DE)

Groundation at C-Club / Berlin

Some weeks ago, Michael (Versace) Ver Steegt wrote me a msg on Facebook that he is coming to Berlin/C-Club as the Live Sound Engineer for Groundation. Well, Friday night - I told him I will be there.

I didn't know Groundation before so I started to listen to some songs on Internet. Reggae music - so I knew I would like it.

When I was coming home from work this evening I saw my wife sick in bed and our children without something to eat, so I made a soup before I was leaving home for the gig.

I arrived there at 9 pm, bought a ticket and went in - saw Michael previously (first at the mixer and than he was on stage) but before I said Hello to him I ordered a beer and went outside to the beergarden to smoke a cig.



Dominique Horwitz @ Tipi am Kanzleramt - Berlin(DE)

Dominique Horwitz interprets Jacques Brel

It was the second time my wife and I saw Dominique Horwitz making Chanson songs with a band. Some years ago he was singing songs of Bertold Brecht and Kurt Weil at the "Kesselhaus/Kulturbrauerei.

And this time he was at the Tipi-Tent near the Chancelor-Administration. We found some good places to sit and could order something to drink and eat before the show began.

When Horwitz entered the stage together with his band (piana, guitar, drums, contra-bass and accordeon) the audience became absolute quit and they could recognize the presence of Horwitz from the first moment. The theme of this tour were songs of Jacques Brel - every song was in french - so as a native french man he is - it was wonderful to hear him sing. In between the songs he was explaining in german lyric phrases what the next song is about to be.



The SunPilots @ Frannz Club - Berlin(DE)

The Sunpilots meet Finland

Short after The Sunpilots had played at Junction Bar, I knew there next gig was one day before xmas and I had this wonderful idea to bring my whole young family there - who were visiting us over the xmas-days.

On Facebook I checked out at which time they were mentioned to play because there were also some other Berlin-Newcomer bands. Bob - guitarplayer of The SunPilots - wrote me back that they should start around 9 pm.

So me, my wife, her brother, his girlfriend and my wife's sister left our home at 8 pm and we were there 1/2 hour before they should start.

Another band was playing already so we took some drinks, saw the Pilots staying around and we were excited to see and hear them play.



KMFDM + Support (Army of the universe) @ K17 - Berlin(DE)

KMFDM - Bandphoto

Already in June I knew that KMFDM is coming to Berlin. I asked Judit from The Netherlands whether she liked also to go there. After it was clear she will come to Berlin, I bought the tickets and was waiting for this gig. She arrived the day before so we had enough time to talk about other things.

The day of the gig I had to work and was at home at 7 pm. We arrived at K17 1/2 hour before the gig started. The supporting act - Army of the universe started at 9 pm - 3 people on stage (a singer - very self-absorbed, a guitar player - who couldn't really play guitar and a mixmaster for the rest of the sound). It was electro rock - not very ambitious. After some songs some people were going out to have some more to drink. We, too.
