SOUNDEAT

cof

Two weekends ago we went to see “Chaos in the CBD” and “Detroit Swindle” in this event called SoundEat. It’s located in Parc del Forum. The place is perfect for this kind of event, it’s a big open space with a massive roof. We weren’t that lucky with the weather though, 7 degrees and cold rain is not the nicest if you want to be outside, but luckily the roof took care of us and the atmosphere was great!

We arrived at around 5 pm and my personal favourites, Chaos in the CBD, had just started playing, their set was amazing and so much fun!! Everybody was dancing and there were smiley faces everywhere. If you ever have a chance to see them DJ, you should go! They play a mix of deep house, disco and techno. They played for two hours and after we finished we caught half an hour of Detroit Swindle but since the weather was so bad we decided to leave early, everyone was also pretty hungry after all the dancing. πŸ™‚

I tried to take some nice pictures to capture the atmosphere and feeling of the evening. The event was well organised and the sound was very good, so in that sense I can really recommend SoundEat. Sometimes you have a great set of artists but then the sound is not good and you can’t enjoy the event at its fullest. Another positive thing is that it starts early and it finishes at a reasonable hour (from 1 pm to 10 pm), so you don’t have to spend the whole night outside.

The best thing about early events is that you still have time to continue the evening with your friends. After the event we went to eat in one of our favourite restaurants “Capitol de Vietnam”. If you are a fan of Vietnamese food, this is a place for you. The service is very good and fast, the food is a heaven on earth and the prices are decent (there will be a post about this place later on). I don’t know if I’m getting old but this kind of evening is just perfect. The older you get it’s more difficult to stay up late and if you do so, the next day you can’t function at all. πŸ˜€

Looking forward to more day events and music!

TOMMY CASH

cof

First of all, I’m not an expert what comes to music. I can’t write a deep analysis of an artist, I can just describe my own experiences and feelings.

I have to say that I feel like a teenager when it comes to Tommy Cash. I don’t know if you know the feeling I’m talking about but it’s just this kind of teenage excitement. I haven’t had this kind of feeling in a long time and especially I haven’t had this kind of excitement about an artist in a long time. I was so happy that Tommy came to Barcelona and after buying the tickets I couldn’t think about anything else than the upcoming show.

The first time I saw his videos, my mind was blown away! I couldn’t believe what I was watching: an Estonian rapper with weird accent on these crazy music videos. The visuals are hypnotising.Β I love the colours and the way people move in his videos. It’s just breathtaking. He is making something different and you can’t put him into one genre.

I think Tommy’s visuals explain the music a lot. I really enjoy his music but to get the full experience I recommend you to watch his music videos. My favourite music video so far isΒ “PUSSY MONEY WEED“. I never would have thought that a song called “PUSSY MONEY WEED” would make me cry. πŸ˜€ The way he represented handicapped people on the music video was one of the best things I had seen in a while. I have never seen anything like that before and it just hit me hard!

About the show here in Barcelona. I really loved it! He played all his songs except “Surf”. I had high expectations and it turned out to be better than I expected. I’m really glad he played in Sala Apolo because the sound was very good. Also I liked the visuals and well, the atmosphere was amazing! Everyone was dancing, jumping and singing. The only sad thing was that he didn’t play an encore but the show was so good so I forgive him. πŸ˜€

I took some videos to show you how great it was, hope you enjoy!
