One crappy cellphone picture per band, The Melody Men, club d’hommage at fluc, Vienna, February 9th, 2013
We’re the kind of people that use Udo Jürgens icons, so of course we attended this event. The Melody Men played songs by all the best people (Connie Francis, Johnny Cash, Peter Cornelius, Elvis Presley, Van Morrison, EAV), charmed the audience with wonderful announcements and, obviously, wore the best jackets. We assume they all ate fried eggs afterwards.
One crappy cellphone picture per band, Oh my Gala! A Pixies Night, Club d’Hommage, Fluc, March 3rd 2012 featuring Crystal Soda Cream, Monsterheart, Black Fox Tropikal, A Thousand Fuegos and Picksüß (say it out loud)
Oh well. While the both of us enjoy some of these bands very much when they play their own songs, last night was a bit underwhelming. Maybe it was my high expectations but they all seemed quite mediocre yesterday. Crystal Cream Soda really didn’t do themselves a favour when they opened with Where Is My Mind? and Monsterheart sounded like they were doing Karaoke. The evening seemed to take off when Black Fox Tropikal started playing but they only really got the instrumental parts right. My favourite part was A Thousand Fuegos’ set, although it seemed a bit put of place after three upbeat bands. Picksüß were okay (congratulations on your name, though). Altogether it was a nice enough evening but it was mostly carried by the fact that the Pixies wrote really great songs.
