The festival season is over, the World Cup is long forgotten and the autumn gigs are coming thick and fast. We’re back with the weekly gig tips, and there are plenty of them as well.
AUSTRA + CHRONIC CITY @ Arena – 09.09
Electro gothic pop at its best from the Canadians who continue to get bigger and bigger. They are playing at the Arena this time after playing at Flex earlier this year. Austrian poppers Chronic City will be supporting
If you are more into discovering local talent then VSA presents Michaela Singt! in B72 is for you
KID INK @ ARENA – 10.09
The Los Angeles rapper, producer, and performer with the shit-load of tattoos will be getting the Arena into a sweat on Wednesday night. Over 9 million fans of Facebook, tracks with over 8 million plays of Soundcloud….not bad…
BLONDIE @ ARENA Open Air – 11.09
Another day, another gig in the Arena. Blondie have influenced countless bands along the years and are one of the undisputed greats of their time. They will be celebrating their 40th anniversary at the Arena by playing classic hits and new creations with an open air gig.
Fettkakao Label Night @ Fluc – 12.06
Fettkakao will be celebrating their 9th birthday on Friday night in Fluc with Californians Audacity and Graz-based Goldsoundz. Entry is donation based so head down and celebrate with the local label.
Goodball It’s Benefiz @ Wiener Sportklub – 13.09
„Goodball – Kicken und Konzerte für Kohle“ will take place for the 6th time this weekend with a football tournament and plenty of live bands playing for a good cause. The Red Bull Brand Wagen will be offering a stage for bands from 6pm including Rika, She and the Junkies, Yasmo and I Wanna Boogie With You. Football, music, and probably plenty of beer, and all for a good cause. You can’t go wrong really….
BLOUSE + CRYSTAL SODA CREAM @ Arena – 14.09
Fuck. Decisions, decisions, decisions….
Sunday nights gigs are always difficult to get off the sofa for. But there are three extremely good ones this weekend. Blouse will be enriching the Arena with their dream pop. The Portland bands self-titled album was one of the stand out albums of 2012 while their second offering Imperium was just as good.
One of the best live performances of the year so far was probably Ezra Furman’s sweatily over the top display in Chelsea in February. The time has flown by and he is back with his Boyfriends, playing the same venue. If you have never seen them live, then please do not pass up this opportunity.
Dream indie of a more guitar-based nature is the order of the evening in B72 with Bored Nothing from Australia. Swim Deep meets Beach Fossils?
