Passenger is a singer-songwriter who played a show in Vienna all the way back in October (good grief, I’ve got a lot of catching up to do with my reviews…). He was accompanied by The Once, a Canadian folk band.
Ellie Goulding is a British singer-songwriter. She played a show in the Vienna Gasometer, with the support of Charli XCX and Matthew Koma.
Ellie Goulding’s show was short but awesome. Both the supporting bands weren’t my thing. But since I didn’t come for them but EG, all I can say is, whatever. She was great.
Belle & Sebastian are a Scottish indie pop band. They played in the Vienna Gasometer with support from Schwervon!, an American rock duo.
The Tiger Lillies Freakshow is a mixture of concert and circus and music theater, directed by Sebastiano Toma.
The Tiger Lillies perform songs about a Victorian Freakshow while we see acts from said Freakshow – a snake woman, “Siamese twins”, a juggler, etc. The songs are sometimes thoughtful meditation about human nature – as Toma puts it very nicely:
“Where is the freak in us? How big or how small does one have to be to understand this world and be part of it? Are six arms enough to comfort someone? How many hearts must a woman have to fulfil her destiny? Is our palm big enough to hold everything we want? How many red ball noses does one have to wear to be funny?”
But sometimes they’re also very funny hymns to Lobotomy.
I liked the show, the music was great and they really captured the aesthetics of the time. Unfortunately the venue (the Gasometer in Vienna) was catastrophic.
IAMX is the solo project of Chris Corner, Noblesse Oblige is an electronic punk duo. They played in the Gasometer.
Mika is a British popsinger. He’s currently on tour with his band; his support in Vienna was Zweitfrau [German], an Austrian pop band.
30 Seconds to Mars is a rock band, most famous for catering to emos everywhere, having cool videos and Jared Leto as the front man. They are on tour right now.
Their support in Vienna was Danish electro rock band Carpark North.
Franz Ferdinand were on tour in autumn and the last stop they made before the went home was in Vienna. I went with *. [As support, they brought 1000Robota, a band from Hamburg I don’t know and that we didn’t check out.]
In November I went to the Editors concert in Vienna with deadra. They brought two supporting bands, Wintersleep and The Maccabees.
