Oh-Sophia’s Advent Calendar: 1st December 2011/Kami

Yes-Yes-Yes, today is the 1st of december and the first day of my official Oh-Sophia Advent Calendar. Every Day until Christmas I will present you a special video created/donated/ animated/commited by a musician/band/artist/special friend/favorite gay such as Surkin, Paperbird, Balthazar, Gotye, Gary, UhOh, Ian Fisher, Scream Club, Nias, Agent Cooper (if they hopefully ever recover…), Vera from Luise Pop, French Films, my family  - The Browns, Honningbarna, Pelin from London and many more…

The Browns

To start with, I chose this amazing video the guys from the great french band KAMI made for me. When I first saw it, I must say, I was almost moved to tears…

They perform an acoustic version of their song Cherry Stone at a very special place…

And I wanted to be on this little island with them or at least on the boat or at least in the south of France, awwwhhhh….

Thank You Hervé & Mart & Max !!

Check out Kami on Facebook and become a fan!!!

Music Is My Lover/ [email protected]/Berlin

A friend of mine, who has been into M83 for ages, was completely surprised when he tried to buy a ticket a few days ago and discovered the the concert at Berlin’s Gretchen had been sold out for a long time, he said “The last times I was there almost on my own….”, which might be a bit exaggerated but he is right, there has been some hype about this french band lately and maybe it has to do with their 2009-support for Depeche Mode on their world-tour which introduced them to a bigger audience, maybe they had some good promotion or maybe it is just because they are great and the masses appreciate that at last (M83 exists since the year 2000!)

So the Gretchen Club was stuffed, still I am not sure if I like this place, the acoustics is okay if there are a lot of people and it looks creepy like a mixture of an old cathedral and a 80ies trash haunted house, but if you wanna go to toilet during a concert, you have to cross the whole audience, pass the stage sideways and all the way back, that sucks big time!

But I forgot about that as soon as the concert started. First they played the Intro from the recent album “Hurry up, we’re dreaming” as the intro of the concert, I captured it on bad quality mobile film…

What can I say, the whole show was amazing, people were freaking out in a very indirect way, only few of them raising their hands and dancing, 90% paralyzed and hypnotized, but at the end of each song breaking out into a hurricane of applause..

At some points the beats were so loud and intense that people stood there, covering their ears in pain, but for me it was a good pain!

Their first single from “Hurry up…” - Midnight City:

The big angry security man besides the stage…

“Wait” live:

After an intense set of about an hour ( maybe it only appeared that shortly because every song’s live version is at least 4 minutes or just because it was great!) they played two encores, ending in a freaking beat bombing techno salad that turned the whole audience into a bunch of armraising jumping maniacs. That’s Berlin, it all starts and ends with Techno!
