The Shout out louds in Munich presenting

Saturday evening I probably visited my last live concert in 2005. The swedish guitar-rock band “Shout out louds” was performing in the famous Munich Atomic Cafe club. Intrduction also by a swedish group called “Nervous Nellie” presenting there debut album “don’t think feel”. It was a great evening and I was lucky getting one of the last tickets at the evening cashier, cause it was sold out quickly.

Following a review by Jim Harrington in “Live Daily”:
If every band tagged to be “The Next Big Thing” were to live up to that forecast, well, amphitheaters, arenas and stadiums around the country would be booked solid 365 days a year. Sadly for concert promoters, the vast majority of these acts fall well short of that prediction. The Shout Out Louds are one of the latest acts to wear the crown of hype. The Swedish quintet’s smartly articulate pop sound will surely attract more than its fair share of listeners, but probably not enough to make the indie-pop favorites a crossover smash.
However, there’s simply no getting around the fact that the Shout Out Louds’ glorious debut, “Howl Howl Gaff Gaff,” is an absolute scream. It’s wonderfully melodic and devilishly fun from start to finish. But what makes the album special is the variety of sounds that come from that scream. “Howl Howl Gaff Gaff” basically changes mood and feel with each new song.
The album kicks off with a driving slice of Weezer-esque emo-pop, “The Comeback,” and then rambles into anthem-friendly alt-rock with “Very Loud.” “A Track and a Train” is a cool piece of ’80s new wave rock that would have fit on “The Breakfast Club” soundtrack, and “Go Sadness” is pure lo-fi space rock.
The Shout Out Louds will probably never warrant the title of “The Next Big Thing.” Instead, the band will simply have to settle for being “The Next Good Thing.”

Who couldn't fall in love with Holly Golightly?

Saturday we saw her the second time in the Munich Atomic Cafe. Last year we discovered her and her Music by accident and on a tip of Christiane. We liked her both immediately (Christiane alleges me to like her only because of her beauty, but its not true: I like also the music…)

Audrey, Mexican Elvis and Senore Matze Rossi

Working overhours the last three month I had little time to write here. But the nice evening yesterday has to be logged. After a good eat at Villa Flora we went to the Munich Orangehouse to see Audrey, a swedish all female indie band. Beside them two other great bands were playing, Mexican Elvis and Seniore Matze Rossi. A nice evening with lot of music, beer and fun. I bought the Senore Matze Rossi CD for 7 Euros.
