MOLOTOV – Vienna (Szene)

This is one of those shows that you are attending because you don’t want to stay at home and watch TV. So I decided to see this Mexican crossover band Molotov at the Szene in Vienna and I have to admit that these Gringos blew me away! Very tight and heavy performance by excellent musicians who changed their instruments nearly song after song! Most of the tunes were from their debut „¿Dónde Jugarán las Niñas?“ which features the hit single „Gimme tha Power„. But they also did an amazing cover version of the Queen classic „Bohemian Rhapsody„.

STEVE WYNN (Solo) – Innsbruck (Die Bäckerei)

You can book Steve Wynn for a so called homeconcert in your living room as he told me in an interview a few years ago.

So this concert was like that – just him with an acoustic guitar he played at the tiny location called „Die Bäckerei“ in Innsbruck. The room was like a living room and in this very familiar atmosphere he played also some songs which were demanded by the crowd. So thanks a bunch for playing „There will come a Day„, by the way 😉

WOVEN HAND – Ebensee (Kino)

My very first Woven Hand live experience – and many should follow 😉
David Eugene Edwards introduced me and one of my friends that night to his new side project beside 16 Horsepower in a very soft and sweet way. Daniel McMahon (Keyboards), Shane Trost (Bass and Trumpet) and Ordy Garrison (Drums, Percussion) created a wonderful sound at the Kino in Ebensee.

The Setlist:

Phyllis Ann
White Bird
Bleary-eyed Duty
Blue Pail Fever
Out of my Hand
Wooden Brother
My Russia
Glass Eye
Story and Pictures
Last Fist
The Good Hand
Aeolian Harp

During the show (between two songs) a cell phone rang. David said to the guy: „Hey, your mobile phone is ringing.“ Then the crowd laughed out loud while this guy answering the call in typically Austrian accent: „I bin auf an Konzert!“ 😉

Pictures of the show are here!


MONKEY MUSIC NIGHT – Linz (Posthof – Big Hall)
Featuring these Austrian bands:
Ordinary World, When The Music’s Over & Matt Boroff

Nothing special at all – just a concert night (by Monkey Music) at the Posthof in Linz with some Austrian bands … Matt Boroff (the singer is from the US) was the best band of that night – very strong performance!

CALEXICO – Vienna (Radiokulturhaus)

This was a special performance from Calexico – if you wanted a ticket for that show you had to tinker something which is related in some way to the name of the band. Well, I created something cheesy and won a ticket 😉

Joey Burns, John Convertino and the other boys performed mostly brandnew songs from the album „Garden Ruin“ at the Radiokulturhaus.

The Setlist:
Yours and Mine
Sunken Waltz
Not even Stevie Nicks…
Red, Red Rose
Bisbee Blue

THE TIGER LILLIES – Graz (Orpheum)

This was the first time when I saw The Tiger Lillies live performing at the Orpheum in Graz. This is that sort of band you have to see live at least once. So if you have the chance just do yourself a favor!

SONS & DAUGHTERS – Munich (Muffathalle)
Support by the local band called FIVE!FAST!!HITS!!!

This one was a free concert and as I discovered this band from Scotland just a few months before (they recorded a breathtaking debut called „Repulsion Box“ back in 2005). So I wanted to convince myself of the live qualities of the Sons and Daughters. Great performance, but I was a little disappointed about the setlist – no „Iodine“ ….

After the show I bought myself a shirt and Scott Paterson (Guitarist) and David Gow (Drummer) signed some covers for me – thanks!

Another example for „before you are sitting at home and watching boring TV shows, you should do yourself a favor and go to a concert“. Nice performing, interesting Goth people and I can remember that the drummer was sitting in a cage during the whole performance at the Szene in Vienna. Anyway – a nice evening but I didn’t become a real fan of this Electro-Wave-Goth band from Germany. I do think that Peter Spilles and his band touring Europe at that time to promote the album „Eon:Eon“ by Project Pitchfork.

Steve Wynn - Vienna (Chelsea)(25.02.2008) Flyer & Ticket © Alex MelomaneFrom the Steve Wynn tour diary:
„Nothing but good times in Vienna. You want music stories?
Packed show at the Chelsea club, our first actual punk rock club of the tour.
No problem. Our gypsy renegade folk worked there just fine and
it was one of the best shows yet. I hope someone was taping it.“



Amanda Palmer and Brian Viglione as The Dresden Dolls rocked the Flex and introduced us their self titled album. And they also did some awesome cover versions like „War Pigs“ from Black Sabbath!Dresden Dolls - Vienna (Flex)(27.02.2005) Flyer © Alex MelomaneDresden Dolls - Vienna (Flex)(27.02.2005) Ticket © Alex Melomane~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
