Next Friday, the 16th of November, we are occupying Tivoli at Kvarteret. But instead of protesting against globalization or the finance industry, we’re playing a concert!
The b0ka DJs Edit and The Famous Biting DJ are warming up the room first, before the band starts playing at 01:00. At this upcoming gig, we are hoping to recapture some of the spirit of the last time we played at Tivoli, which actually was our first concert ever as a band.
That concert was one of the most special memories ever for us. Obviously, that the first concert is precious is true for most bands. But it’s not really that it was the first concert that were special, but how it happened.
We had invited, begged and dragged our friends to come, and due to a small article in an online magazine, there were some other people as well. Most of them had only heard snippets of our music, if anything, and had no expectations at all.
The singing was a bit off key, and there were some small errors here and there. Despite this though, people enjoyed it overall, and slowly started dancing. First calmly, then gradually more wildly… Eventually some started jumping in euphoria, and not long after, the whole room was boiling. People were dancing like crazy, and during one of the last songs, most of the audience joined together in a gigant conga-line, like back in the days when we were kids.
Now, tell me; how often does that happen during a normal concert in Norway?
So get geared for something special, and join in and invite your friends for the facebook event here.
