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 - 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.

The Sunpilots@JunctionBar20111027

I was excited to see The Sunpilots again. And they were playing at Junction Bar - the tip for this club was by me. It should start at 9 pm and when I arrived there 20 min later they were still outside or talking with guests. There were maybe 20-30 people - not that much I expected. I hoped there would come more later on. I also saw that they had another drummer.

They had a special guest this night called Ray Man - also from Australia but now living in Berlin like The SunPilots. He started to play an accoustic set - him, his guitar and a wonderful romantic voice. The way he was playing guitar reminds me a little bit of Stanley Jordan.

Michael Franti & Spearhead @Paradiso/Amsterdam/NED

Before the show:
At 5 pm we came to the railway station by bike and 15 min later we reached Centraal in Amsterdam. On the way to Paradiso we took some food and arrived at Paradiso 1/2 h before the show began. At the door I was a little bit anxious if we were really on the guestlist but everything was ok and we got our passes - Marion and Bauke for the aftershow and me with All Access. The show was sold out - so many people but we got a good place on the middle right side 10 m away from the stage.



 

 

The SunPilots @ Arcanoa - Berlin(DE)

It was already in January when I heard the first time from The Sunpilots. Getting connected through MySpace and Facebook there was this gig-date for Berlin announced and I was sure to go there because I like this progressive - poetic kind of rock music - and - Arcanoa is only 900m away from my home.

This friday was very cloudy and in the earlier evening it started to rain "out of all buckets". I was tired and not sure if I should go. So first I started to sleep some time. I woke up at 10 pm - the rain stopped and I went immediately. The gig already started as I heard it outside from the street. The Arcanoa is a very small music-bar and maybe 30 - 40 people were there.

I heard the songs - except "Drones" - for the first time and I think they were playing almost all songs from their new record "King of the sugarcoated tongues". In the first part of their show they were also doin a cover of Dylan/Hendrix "All along the watchtower".
