SPOT DAYPARTY @V58
Deep breath and… after Spot Festival 2012 DAY 1… day 2 came. It’s Saturday morning. Well… to that “morning” maybe, because 11:15 is closer to noon. Aarhus is sunny and windy (the wind makes it sooooooo cold, but that’s ok). People are gathering around at the V58 yard. They’re sitting down on big pillows, drinking beer and enjoying the light and nice music. Spot DAYPARTY. It is “day” and it is a “party”. It’s also lovely. Who’s playing?
It all starts very summer-style, even tropical you may say, with The Eclectic Moniker concert. Joyful, super light sounds, bongos, guitars and relax floating from the music makes the audience dream about Tenerife. Wonderful performance.
The show of Cody was hipnotyzing. You can dive into their music, melt down, disappear in it… The atmosphere of the picnic and a sunny day went behind some kind of musical mist, when the first sounds from Cody had started. These Danes have a special skill – even though they play for a crowd, you feel like they were playing only for you. That’s how I felt during their gig at Spot Dayparty.
At the end of Spot Dayparty there was a strong Danish accent. I was very curious if Ulige Numre are so good live as I have heard. The answer was short and satisfactory – they are. Great. Really. Live version of “Kobenhavn” was stunning. It’s a big word, but suitable. Stunning. Retro-style at its best – I want more!
Before everybody went to experience some other Spot Festival concerts, there was a situation I didn’t quite understand. A little boy came to the “stage” and Danish peole started clapping their hands and singing somethig. Later I found out that right next to the venue where Spot Dayparty was taking place, there was some kind of a reception because of that boy baptism (?). So the organizators of the event were keep on asking people “to behave”. And at the end they invited the boy to come and celebrated with him. Super-sweet ending of super-nice event at V58.
