It’s difficult to criticize an event, when it’s one of relatively few one-day events in Aarhus that has such a turn up – but I’m gonna do it any way.
Though some people came to see Sonja Hald, some people came to see Fjer, some people came to see Heimatt and some came to see Milford, most people came to see Rangleklods and only Rangleklods. A lot of people even turned up 5 minutes before they entered the stage? If the idea is to promote upcoming bands, to give them a chance to be seen live, this isn’t the right way to go. All the spotlight should be on the upcoming bands instead of the so called “surprise act”(?).
In some way it’s alright that the bands were completely different, because a night with 4 bands playing almost the same music…. None of the acts delivered quite what I expected. I missed Heimatt, but I’ve seen them a couple of times before, and they are really not my favorite band in the world. Fjer had a terrible spot in the line-up, as she should’ve started or even be on the poster with three other names, that perhaps where a bit closer to her genre. Sonja Hald and Milford just disappointed, as I see it. Individually they might have played approved concerts, but all in all things didn’t work out.
The surprise act might have been the worst kept secret in the history of secrets, but I was extremely glad to see Rangleklods live again. It was the last concert in Aarhus with his old set-up, naturally as it has been his live material for the last couple of years. I think he said, that they’ll come back in spring and perform live with some new tunes. A Rangleklods concert for 30 kr.? That’s more like it.
