One stage, a few blue/red spotlights and some minimal equipment – that’s all what it takes to make a regular concert to a unique experience!
The lovely guys of The Attic Sleepers and Kolding-based newcomers Blaue Blume finally came back to front singer Jonas Smith’ home city and together they played an awesome show at Pitstop on Thursday, 2. October 2014.
From the very beginning The Attic Sleepers caught the audience by getting them dancing in front of the stage with their mixture of impulsive synths and gently lyrics, before the by now short-haired bunch of Blaue Blume started their weird, inharmonic performance after a short break. Actually it was not a classical sing-a-long, but more a composition of story-telling, falsetto voice and epileptical pseudo-dancing from the very heart. Jonas Smith underlined the effect of their choreography with his sad, steel-blue eyes and a good sense of silence and overwhelming melodies during the 60-minutes concert, so no one did dare to take a picture with their smartphone (well, except of me).
The intimate, tensioned atmosphere was contradicted by the cheering applause of the audience and the friends of the bands after each song and an expressive instrumental encore at the end of this evening.
If you didn’t see Blaue Blume live before, you should check Facebook and watch out for one of their next concerts! For more concert impressions of Blaue Blume and The Attic Sleepers, have a look at Good because Danish’s report of the sold-out show in Copenhagen.
