This summer I'm gonna get an overdose of music -- for my means. Usually I don't go to concerts or festivals a lot, but this year, I'm gonna venture out to the Sziget together with my friend the konzertjunkie.
If you should go to the Sziget too, make sure to check out Kaizers Orchestra! And if you like weird ethno stuff, don't miss Värttinä. I heard both live before, and they are worth the money. Other bands I'm gonna give a chance to convince me with their live talents ;-) include Chemical Brothers, Faithless, Gogol Bordello, Pink, Sinéad O’Connor, Madness, Mari Boine... if you have seen any of the these or other Sziget bands live, why not leave a comment how you liked them. And what please is "!!!"? Whatever it is, it doesn't sound bad either.
Oh, and today -- Tori Amos posters! In Prague! They are everywhere! And this time I really gotta go see her, she'll be in Prague in June. I kind-a skipped her last two albums, but today I heard 'Big Wheel' from the new album, and yup, this sounds more like it. So I went to look for Prague tickets on an international online shop: The cheapest tickets were like 130 Euros. Hmmm... In a German online shop, tickets cost 100 Euros, and the cheapest ones 50... Hmmm. Tomorrow I'll go to the bookshop at the metro station. I would not be surprised if I could get a seat in a good category there for less than 50 Euros... I'll keep you posted. =-)
PS: Yup, indeed: 50 Euros is the max price. The Prague Congress Center (right at Metro B stop "Vysehrad", some place as the Sun tech days recently) may not be the must beautiful venue judging from the outside, but alegedly it has excellent acoustics inside, and the inside counts, right? ;) Is anybody going?
