Mum, I wanna be a drummer girl

by Thorendal

It was a lovely Wednesday in Copenhagen, I was getting all exited about the evening’s concert; an intimate (2000 tix) concert with White Stripes and Raveonettes in an old train repair hall or something.

And I had very good reasons to be exited, cause the arrangement was brilliant! But not very easy to explain.
First there was a waming up band. We didn’t know the band, and we didn’t see the band. I guess it was ok, we didn’t pay much attention to them.
Secondly Raveonettes went on. This was my 10th concert with that band within 2½ years. But I have to admit - it was very poor. Sune and Sharin seemed like they were very much stoned out of their brains, which is not very apropriate. I cannot be bothered to say a lot about that part of the evening!

But White Stripes were fantastic! Bloody hell it was an amazing experience. I don’t think I had any expectations to their show, but I was ever so surprised about how good their music and stage show is. It was bit like the fact about the bumble bee. In theory it cannot fly, but it does, and no one can explain it. The same about White Stripes - two people on stage delivering such a well performed concert. How do they do it? I don’t know, but they really do! Never heard anything like it!
On top of that Jack was all over the stage, singing (and what a voice!), playing the guitar, piano, and what ever the other instrument was called. Singing his lungs out. He looks wierd, but it was fantastic!
Meg has a very goth look to her, and still very reserved. But when she starts playing the drums I have to admit I reconcidered if I have chosen the right career. Should I have been a drummer instead? I guess not, cause I have nothing close to the coolness that she has. I tell you it was so cool, she was so cool! Why isn’t there more girls playing the drum? If they could be as cool as Meg, I am sure the world would be a better place to be. That was amazing!

We had a cool evening in spite of Sune and Sharins druged out performance.

…and Malene, Bering, and Morten, thanks for a fun evening.
