Trash may be the creator of the experience, but he is far from selfish with it. He asks for volunteers to be human canvases and for people to paint them. Read more about the band here and catch them live @ Moritzbastei next Thursday.
What if you randomly got to hang out with your favorite band?
The US band Alabama Shakes made the audience at Leipzig’s Conne Island go wild last Tuesday, preceded by outstanding opening act Rhonda from Hamburg, and I captured some highlights on video for you.
LeipGlo’s Kapuczino explores today why German radio can be so uninspiring and repetitive, and why, living in Germany, you may not have heard of the awesome Alabama Shakes. Says our columnist: “Now that rock ‘n’ roll has been reinvented about 5,938,276 times already, this time it experiences a refreshingly down-to-earth and vibrant rendition in the shape of the southern-rooted Alabama Shakes.” They are now fortunately coming to Leipzig, so we get a chance to “meet” them live – June 30 at Conne Island.
Via wit, history and video, our music columnist explores groundbreaking – and very cool – contributions to the fabric of classical music (and contemporary rock too) by Johann Sebastian Bach, timeless Leipzig celebrity, as Bach Festival approaches, 12-21 June.
