Sooo, my last posts here were rather long. It takes me 2-4hrs to write them and I would really like to try to write shorter posts – I hope, I will post more regularly then. But – alas – there are more post-monsters ahead!
Zita Rock Festival (One day only – lucky me)
Rockharz (3 days, but maybe I will write only one post)
So for the shorties: what happend to the wordpress smileys? They look so … so… strange?
So this would be the last day of this great festival. I really was a little sad, but also rather exhausted. My feet were hurting, even if I did not stand or walk – so finally it was time, the festival ended. For this day planning was easy: All bands at the AGRA would be playing more or less medieval music with some quite big names to it – so we would be there as we both love this kind of music. The weather wasn’t too nice, so it was easy for us to go inside early and not leave again until late at night.
The first band to play were The Moon and The Nightspirit, a band from Hungary. The feature a violine along with the usual set of guitars and drums and the violin player (she) and the guitaris (he) share in singing. The music is really nice and comfortable, despite she seems to be singing lots of “lalala” stuff instead of actual lyrics and he growling a lot (a combination which I do not always like), but the sound pleasant anyway. Maybe the female singer actually had text to sing, but I didn’t get it because I do not speak Magyar. Their songs are based on Magyar legends and the band dresses up accordingly. The violinist -for example – looked like some elf or druid wearing a floor-long hooded dress made from green velvet, the men’s clothing looking more like clan warriors. Their performance was really nice, but nothing I would buy on CD, but if I saw them at a festival, I wouldn’t want to miss them. Continue reading →
