The Cranberries @Romexpo, Bucharest: Oct-11

Filed under: Local News,Romanian Scene — Tags: , , , , — admin @ 12:31 pm

Events proudly presents the second Romanian concert of rock/pop sensation of the 1990’s The Cranberries on Oct-11, at 20:00hrs at Romexpo in Bucharest. The concert will be opened by Romanian act The Mono Jacks (we saw their awesome performance in 2011 opening for Suede: Viva Music review & photos).

The Cranberries are a genuine lovemark of the 1990’s and their early hiatus in the 2000’s left many audiences in a melancholy wait for their performances. Known to fuse elegantly and bluntly at the same time Irish lore and poetry (quite a few of their songs dwell on references from the poetry of W. B. Yeats), pervasive rock sounds, and a dark approach to the issues that convulse mankind (wars, addiction, lack of humanity in addressing the world’s problems), the band managed to raise to success within the shortest of whiles. Albums such as “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We” or “No Need to Argue“, which are soon to step into their third decade, procured them a solid audience and their personality left an indelible mark on the way we perceive music today.

With their darker shades, explored mainly in albums such as “To the Faithful Departed” or “Wake Up and Smell the Coffee“, which approach diligently issues such as death, parental carelessness, the effect of war on people, depression, as well as alienation, they not only succeeded in offering a musical feast for their fans, but also open up a personal debate with their listeners on issues that impact our lives. Charismatic lead singer Dolores O’Riordan continued this self-assigned mission even after the band split; her solo albums, released in the mid-2000’s addressing personal issues such as bereavement, death from cancer of beloved ones, and the inability of the individual to cope with the great shattering experiences that shape our world today.

For their 2012 Bucharest concert, The Cranberries propose a musical treat of 2 hours: songs of their musical past, as well as a tour promo of their newest album, released in Feb-12, “Roses“. The Bucharest date of their tour is eagerly awaited by fans – and the venue of Romexpo suits very well the acoustics and audience needs of such a concert. You can purchase tickets here. You can RSVP to the Facebook event here. You can read more about the Romanian promoter of the event here.

Este compilat de terte forte muzicale, se mixeaza la pupitru si se mananca cu teme saptamanale ale unui viitor emergent, tripante atat auditiv, ca t si vizual. Si priveste cat mai putin in urma.

Alpha Point: The name should tell you only witnessed the beginning

Filed under: Local News — Tags: , , , , , — admin @ 7:09 pm

Some encounters with artists bring us the unexpected discovery that the known geography of our scene is, to say the very least, incomplete. Viva Music’s Artist of the Month does not come from either Germany or Belgium, but from Moldova – less of a trampoline of electronic music, but nevertheless one that you should think of when mapping out your world. The reason? One man, Alexander ‘Rush’ Gladky, and his endeavors: in recent years, his name is often heard in connection to music projects, live performances, parties, covers, and remixes. This is why Viva Music chooses Alexander as our Artist of the Month – plus the fact that he is a very promising artist you should be looking out for.  [continue reading Viva Music Artist of the Month in English] [cititi sectiunea Artistul lunii de pe site-ul Viva Music in romana]
