Amy LaVere at John Dee

no comments

An email newsletter from the local concert-scene in Oslo tempted me to visit John Dee to see and hear Amy LaVere from Memphis, Tennessee play on wednesday may 6th. I had never heard about her before, but the mini-review in their newsletter made me stop by her MySpace-page to hear some of her songs. It isn’t (well, wasn’t) not my typical music, but it sounded really good, good enough to warrant a live experience. She plays the contrabass with style, and has a really nice, graceful and slightly rustic voice.

Katzenjammer at Rockefeller, january 23rd

1 comment

WOW! I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to see Katzenjammer again in concert since their last one  crashed with Tracy Chapman (back in october). Back then, I chose Tracy Chapman, because I figured it would be a slightly higher chance to see Katzenjammer again soon, than Tracy.. and it turned out I was right! I was at a few really really good concerts in 2008, and in my mind I have a few “winners”. If this concert had been among the 2008-ones, I think it would climb very very near the top, if not all the way. More: Read the rest of this entry…

Lucky Lips at Cafe Sør

Tonight (december 14th 2008) I had the pleasure of seeing Lucky Lips live for the third time, this time at a cafe in Oslo, Cafe Sør. I’ve only been to this cafe once before, a few years back, and I didn’t even know they had live performances until now. More: Read the rest of this entry…

Katzenjammer at Oslo City

no comments

The norwegian band Katzenjammer, founded in 2005, held a (free) mini-concert at Platekompaniet in Oslo City mall on saturday, october 4th. Platekompaniet isn’t exactly the ideal place for a concert, but in spite of that, the overall experience was surprisingly good (although short)!

The Zombies at Parkteateret

no comments

It was with great joy that I found that The Zombies was going to play in Oslo the 27th of september 2008. I’m not a huge fan, but I’ve listened alot to music from the sixties throughout the years, and these guys are one of many bands I enjoy listening to. Two of the original members, Colin Blunstone (lead vocals) and Rod Argent (organ, vocals), along with Jim Rodford (bass, vocals), his son Steve Rodford (drums) and Keith Airey (guitar, vocals) were on stage at Parkteateret Scene, and gave a wonderful concert!
