You’re Only Massive will play at the Craw Festival and 48 Stünden Neukölln on the 23rd of June
You’re Only Massive will play our first Berlin concert in over three years on the at the Craw Festival, which is happening during the massive art festival, 48 Hours Neukölln.
Which is near Rathaus Neukölln on the U7.
Our friends in Princess 4Q, are an incredible audio visual pallette cleanser. They play at 1800, so check them out, drink a few shots, and get ready to dance to our new sound, our new guitarist and our new fog machine!!
This gig, and the whole festival is free.
In the spirit of returning to our DIY roots, we made this flyer to promote our slot:
We will be spreading these around and forcing them on people at every bustop we pass!
Violent Vickie are an amazing synthpop/riot GRRl band from Oakland, California currently on tour through Europe.
Their influences are Bikini Kill and the Beach Boys, and their sound is frantic fast paced 4/4 electropop.
Perfect for dancing, perfect for crowd surfing!
They use multimedia elements in their live shows such as projections and stripper poles.
We went to see them in Kreuzberg on a stormy monday night.
Whether it was ionically charged atmosphere, or the innumerable support acts, by the time Violent Vickie took the stage, every person in the awkwardly shaped Waterloo venue was jammed to the front, craning to see.
Watch the whole gig here:
Their song “Drugs” talk directly to the audience,
and “Beauty Store” speaks out against the pressure to conform that oppresses us all.
But, it is in songs like “Money is Mine“, as band comes into dialogue with each other,
that the show begins to rocket.
Tension is released for the band, but not for the audience, who won’t let them go,
unlocking the rare quadruple encore achievement.
The Violent Vickie 2013 European Tour continues in to the UK this week:
1. August: Retro Bar, Manchester.
2. August: Bar 1:22, Huddersfield
3. August: The Dublin Castle, Camden, London
4. August: The Hope Pub, Brighton
I was very privileged to witness a march and rally by the Campaign Against Home and Water Taxes in Cork City which rallied people together to protest the governments highly unpopular new property and utility taxes. I also recorded some audio clips and footage of the action, which you can see below.
Watch the video, with headphones in HD mode is best, and go to http://bit.ly/CAHWT for more information.
