Eurosonic – Annasaid, Dry The River and Pien Feith

Onwards with Eurosonic, the second part of Wednesday night: According to the schedule we worked from we headed to the Grand Theater to see Ólöf Arnalds. However, due to some changes to the schedule Ólöf Arnalds had already finished. Not the end of the world for my companion, who’d see her the next evening, but this was my one and only chance! Oh well, couldn’t be helped, we headed back to De Spiegel to see Annasaid. Energetic pop music from Denmark and it was great to watch. Again the light in the venue was terrific, no complaints there

Dreading the lighting we headed back to… you guessed it: Shadrak. Musically really really good, but hard to get decent pics again we watched Dry The River. Actually, the light wasn’t at all that bad, but I’d like just a little more in the front. Dry the River (bandnames do get weirder and weirder, don’t they?) played a fantastic set. They played both rocking songs and very quiet and both worked really well

The last band on our list was not actually on the Eurosonic schedule, in an Alley, behind Shadrak is Café Warhol where Pien Feith and band played the best gig I saw that evening. Electronics and Pien Feith were a great combination. However the location was to incredibly badly lit and red that all the meters from my camera went numb and my camera told me to take a hike. Did the best I could, but I really hope to see Pien somewhere where I can make some decent photos of her. The gig was great though and I had a lovely time

And that was the end of the first night and the beginning of four days of chaos in my house. The next day the other photographer and writers arrived and together rode to Groningen for the Eurosonic event. I only accompanied them at the Platosonic event, of which you’ll see images in the next posting
