Went to listen to this. It was more like an interview, but it was still cool. He talked about how he got into bass and how they write and perform their songs. Cool guy. The audience was invited to ask questions too, but I couldn’t think of anything smart to ask
There was a similar session with Brady Watt that I attended as well. These sessions are part of a podcast series called “Basgasten” (literally “Bass guests”, but could also be translated as “Bass dudes”). This podcast is on Spotify. Sessions with Adam Ben Ezra and Renaud Garcia Fons (who is awesome by the way) have already been posted. I’m hoping the ones with Brady Watt and Henrik Linder will become available too:
Someone in the audience at the Dutch Double Bass Festival filmed pretty much Brady Watt’s entire show, and he posted it as an “official bootleg” Worth watching!
Some interesting names there… hope it is not all in Dutch Also, I need to find it somewhere else than Spotify…
Try this link:
Many of the bass players interviewed don’t speak Dutch either
Yep, but my favorite bass player, Frans Vollink, unfortunately does
I would like to see QOTSA in February but the ticket I can afford is for the sit-on-the-lawn area and with my old bones I need a seated ticket. Which is about $300 more.
I have a teenager who loves K-pop so the next concert will be IVE in July. We saw Twice last week, who had a live band that were pretty excellent. Bassist was great
Sisters of Mercy on Saturday
Such ridiculous prices I got seated tickets for €65 each…
Neat. Eldrich puts on a good show (or used to at least).
I saw them years ago back in the 90s @howard and they were pretty cool. I hope they can still cut it
The gig’s actually part of the “Soundedit” festival for music producers About Festival - Soundedit We saw Gary Numan there a couple of years ago and he did not disappoint
Whoa. They have had some killer shows!
Also I had somehow spaced on you being in Poland
The Wooten Brothers tomorrow in Elgin, Illinois.
Not my favorite musical stylings, but worth it to see a master of their craft at work!
Is Rebirth opening?
If you you will love them!
No opening band. Amazing show though! Truly a talented family. It was a pleasure to see one of the GOATs up-close (4th row, right in front of Victor the entire time), and the talent of them all was out of this world. I’m absolutely floored still.
The Iron Maidens, this Friday 11/17/23 in Cocoa Beach FL then Saturday 11/18/23 in Pompano Beach FL!
Saw the Fun Lovin’ Criminals yesterday. Was okay, nothing special, but it allowed me to have a couple of beers with my friends, so no complaints.
Next up: TOOL! May 27th, 2024,Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam. Just secured two tickets this morning. Can’t wait!
Level 42 tomorrow evening - looking forward to seeing Mark King live in action
Yep, so they did what they were supposed to do - played a lot of their hits to please the (aging) crowd Personally, I’d wished they would play more instrumentals from their early days, but in the end it was just one tune without vocals.
Mark’s playing is still unbelievable, especially considering he is singing along most of the time. He had two Jaydees in play - from what I could see they were identical. He switched basses half way through the concert - I am guessing he just wanted a fresh set of strings. Gotta keep them zingy for those slaps and pops.
Not much pyrotechnics otherwise - a short slap solo, but otherwise they kept it “civilized” for the senior citizens Sound was good for the slapping, a bit muddy for the fingerstyle stuff.
Oh, and keyboard player (Mike Lindup) had a bit of an off night on the keys… or, perhaps he couldn’t see much through his shades
I love the show reviews.
I’ll be headed to see The Menzingers in early December.
I’ll tell you how it goes. I expect to do a lot of singing along.
