‘Wake up wake up wake up…’

December 16, 2009

Back from Julian Casablancas’ gig. It was sometimes wild, particularly in the beginning, with people pushing and squeezing, especially girls (Casablancas attracts lots of female fans).

A few notes:

Girls began to faint at the first song (30” after Julian grabbed the microphone)

– Despite the songs sounding more electro than rock, people were still jumping around and moshing

– Julian tried to slam on the audience twice, but failed each time

– There were two drummers: a bearded guy and a girl who was standing while hitting the drums

Left right in the dark performed live is awesome

I’ll try anything once performed live is OK

– Was annoyed by two girls talking loudly in Spanish, and met one Corsican guy (that’s how he introduced himself, I didn’t know it was a nationality…) with Bolivian origins, and discussed with him in French

– Received some beer in the hair (I missed that); was hugged by two guys on two separate occasions (maybe I looked like one of their friends)

– The HMV Forum in Camden is a nice venue; piece of advice: avoid watching a concert upstairs (get in the moshpit and get crushed cheerfully instead!)

PS: this blog is not dead, more articles will follow this one
