Meetup at my place

by Thorendal

Tonight I have had a lot of nerds in my flat. In fact I don’t think it will ever happen again that that many nerds will be at my flat at the same time.

Of course I am refering to our monthly meetup which I offered a few months ago could be ay my place. So we were 8 of us showing up - pretty impressive showup really!

Anyways, we had a visitor from www.dr.dk, Claus Thor who was talking about the reconstruction of their site, which was very interesting as most people have an opinion about the site. So many good discussions came up and a lot of questions too.
It was a very pleasant evening with much more interaction (and people) than usually. That was nice!

Thanks guys and girl for an interesting evening!

Where is Moogie?

by Thorendal

Tonight Malene and I went to Rust to hear Camilla Munck and Moogie Johnson. I didn’t know the music, so I didn’t know what to expect. I must say though, it was a real pleasure to listen to their some how silent songs and voices. They have amazing voices and suit each other very well on stage. Camilla Munck has an extremely beautiful voice - ever so fragile yet powerful, peaceful!

Thanks to Malene for a fun night out!

Saga

by Thorendal

Saga

Nostalgia has ruled tonight! My friend Per invited me to the Saga concert in Amager Bio. I cannot claim to know any of thier music, but I am always up for live music!
Saga is a band from Toronto, as far as I know they are from the late 70’s, they had most succes in Europe compared to their succes in NA.
Their style of music is often compared to Styx and Yes which are band that I have heard of and kind of know.

Anyways, it was greate fun to listen to the music and to experience the audience - not exactly the same people that are usually at the concerts I go to.
It is amazing to see that none of the guys in the band has left the 1980’s (isn’t there a law against perming guys hair?). We were totally brought back to the 80’s with this music, and they played for almost two hours. We could have done with half of that, but it really was fun.

Thanks ever so much to Per for an amazing evening out!

More Attitude than music

by Thorendal

Surfact
Surfact

I won tix for the Racing Ape concert in Vega last night. The warm up was a Danish band called Surfact, and was extremly inspired by Pearl Jam and Nirvana. But it was actually really good. They were having fun on stage and the audience enjoyed the show. The front man, Jesper Storgaard, had an amazing voice and was looking so calm when he was singing, all smiley and happy.
- Really nice experience!


Racing Ape
Then Racing Ape came on - and I will actually not use many words on that part of the show other than the sound was terrible, the singer was a right little prat, and there was no appealing bits what so ever in their performance.

Anyways we went to Stengade 30 afterwards, where Bjørn Svin playing. Not that we saw very much of that, but thanks a lot to Malene for a very nice and fun night out!
