Welcome again to my personal Music Diary – today for the 30th October!
Back in 2002 Mr. Nick Cave played a special solo show feat. Warren Ellis, Jim White and Norman Watt-Roy in Vienna at the wonderful Burgtheater. It was obvious that this “band” didn’t play a long time together – I do think it was the very first time that they performed officialy. The soundcheck was VERY long so the show started one hour late. This performance was part of the 10th anniversary of the “schule für dichtung“, a school for poetry in Vienna for which Nick Cave did some lectures.
Setlist, pictures and reviews from different newspapers can be seen here (just scroll down to the bottom of the page).
Welcome back to my personal Music Diary – today for the 25th October!
Back in 2006 Transmissionary Six played a very cosy and intimate concert in the very small Austrian village called Vöcklamarkt. To the location called Premysl, which is just a tiny bar in the middle of nowhere, only a few people found the way there.
Welcome to another entry in my personal Music Diary, today for the 24th October!
Back in the year 2000 I had my first live experience with an outstanding band from Finland: Apocalyptica! The quartet played a sold out and breathtaking show in Munich at the Muffathalle. You weren’t there but you would love to see this? No problem at all because this concert was filmed and released on DVD called “Apocalyptica Live” which features mostly songs from the masterpiece “Cult“.
P.S.: A few months before that show I did an interview with Eicca Toppinen at the music fair in Cologne (see the picture below) – you can watch the video here (just scroll down a little bit)!

Today, on the 22nd October 2003, the amazing Walkabouts played a show in Vienna at the Szene. Larry Barrett did a wonderful support that night and after the show Chris Eckman and Carla Torgerson were so kind to sign some CD covers and the poster below – thanks again!
