Go, see, hear, do, breathe, smell, love, drink, laugh. This week in music should be spent as follows…
DENT MAY@ Rhiz – 19.11
Existential pop, psychedelic funk, and melancholy soul from the self-titled “King of unpop” in Rhiz on Tuesday night. It will be another chance to revisit the summer as he brings his mississippi flair to the Gürtel. Dent May’s songs make for damn good remixes as well – HERE
If you have a thirst for the unknown then the monthly stage for new and unsigned bands WannaPlayVienna is always a good option. Diesel Weasel and Michael G will be taking to the stage this time.
SWIM DEEP @B72 – 20.11
The lads from Birmingham hit it big with “She Changes the Weather” a sprawling cloud of shoe gaze dreaminess and the rest of their debut album “Where the heaven are we” takes a silmilar path. Big things have been predicted for this band by the English press, so best to strike while the iron is hot and check them out in the cozy confines of B72.
Reich & Föhn will be presenting another night of top quality music of a louder kind on Wednesday night in the Flex Cafe with Jacuzzi Boys and Aivery.
Bo Candy And His Broken Hearts@ Rhiz – 21.11
Bo Candy And His Broken Hearts will be celebrating the release of their new album “Flowers Must Fade” in the Rhiz on Thursday night. You can listen to it in full on their Soundcloud page, but the better option is to soak it up live and get your fill of their blues and folk influenced sound in all its glory.
Gogol Bordello @Gasometer- 23.11
These guys had their high point back in 2005/6 with the release of the absolutely amazing Gypsy Punks. Underdog Worldstrike (it is an album everyone should have in their collection). They are not as good as they used to be, but their live shows are always pretty damn enjoyable to watch. Definitely a band you need to have seen at least once in your lifetime, but they are past their best unforunately
On Sunday Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are in Vienna, but if you are a Nick Cave fan then you will have bought your ticket for this one a looooong time ago, as there are no more….
Starfucker @Chelsea – 25.11
Catchy pop hooks and tunes to make Monday’s bearable. That is what can be expected in Chelsea with Starfucker. Their 4th album Miracle Mile came out in March to positive fan fair.
If you are looking for something a little darker on your Monday night then look no further than Glasvegas. The scots make music which continues to polarize opinion. They haven’t quite been able to live up to the commercial success of their debut “Glasvegas” back in 2009 and their 3rd album “Later…When The TV Turns To Static” failed to make any major impact in the charts despite decent reviews. Some call them groundbreaking, others call them depressingly boring, we say go and find out for yourselves.
