When you wake up and you smile to the flashbacks of last night – that means it was a good one! As the night of 9. October 2014 was for all the Scandinavian music fans who attended the Ja Ja Ja Berlin Opening Night party at the lovely venue FluxBau in Berlin :)
All lights were down, candles on the tables of the venue’s upper floor created a cozy, intimate atmosphere. The whole surrounding said “you will remember this night” from the very moment I entered FluxBau. The venue is situated under the Spree river, with a beautiful terrace and a view on the O2 World arena. Quite a magical place.
In such intimate atmosphere it was a pure pleasure to listen to Danish gem Blaue Blume, the Norwegian indie-pop sweethearts from Alfred Hall and Swedish pop dynamite Naomi Pilgrim.
As you can guess, I was most looking forward to see the DK representants – Blaue Blume, who were opening the night with their show. And what a show it was! They looked like a grunge band from Seattle from the 80’s, they played like a group out of this world and they won the hearts of the audience from the very first song. Especially “Jealousy” re-released on the band’s new EP “15.01.12” and “Lemon Tree” from their debut EP “Beau & Lorette” made a huge impression on me.
Blaue Blume proved with their show that artists don’t need to talk in between songs. If your music is as addictive as Blaue Blume’s – all you need to do is to play it and not interrupt it with too much talking. Thanks to the band for that!
There is one more “thank you” to say after the show – dear FluxBau venue, thanks for one of the best sounding shows I’ve been to in a long time! Such a clear sound made all of the artists’ performances even more memorable. Great job!
The Ja Ja Ja Berlin Opening Night couldn’t have a better start than the great show of Blaue Blume. The other Scandinavian artists performing did their job perfectly well, too. The 9. October 2014 is definitely a night to remember (especially when your camera can’t make good photos to keep the memory alive on pictures ;) ). Now all you can do is to get your tickets for the next concert of the series, which will happen on 13. November (also at FluxBau).
