New Music

Over the last few months it's been confirmed for me again that getting into a new fandom can lead to all kinds of unrelated discoveries. In this case: music. Turns out that some of the Supernatural actors have really good taste in music. Since listening to stuff they tweeted about I've bought new albums by Sturgill Simpson, Brian Buckley Band, Jason Manns (ok, those were covers featuring some of the actors, so not sure it counts *g*), and Kaleo.

As it turned out, Sturgill Simpson had a gig at our local music festival (Reeperbahnfestival), so I went to see him live yesterday. My first concert in a smaller club in years. The last one I'd been to was Hugh Laurie at Cafe Keese, but while the music was good, the venue was awful. Could mostly just see heads of people in front of me, and only a few glimpses of Hugh, when he was standing up. Yesterday's gig was at "Knust", which turned out to be a much better venue. (Also, I got there early-ish, so ended up 2 or 3 rows from the stage). Good thing I went, because Simpson's a really good live musician, with a great band. Country music's not everyone's taste of course, but his stuff is well worth looking into. Here's a clip of his cover version of "The Promise"

If you like it a bit more upbeat, have some bluegrass. Only a short-ish clip though

Oh, and I almost forgot. For any Germans reading: parts of the concert were filmed, and should be on WDR Rockpalast some time in October. Keep an eye out.

And since the festival ticket buys you entry into around 25-30 or so clubs, it would have been a waste to just go home afterwards. So I hurried a bit (only had 20 minutes), and made it to a gig by Dan Owen at the opposite end of the festival area (= 1 subway ride and a 15 minute walk away) almost on time. Found this one while browsing the festival program. Looks a bit like he could be part of a boygroup, but that voice... Also, it's just him and his guitar (plus maybe a harmonica) on stage, which I always like. Here's one of his more mainstream songs. No picture though, I wasn't in a good spot to film anyway, so I just held the phone close and tried to get a good sound recording. Unfortunately stood close-ish to the bar, and some people just couldn't stop talking, so excuse the background noise.

And the last song of the night, Little Red Rooster. How can this kid:

sound like this? It's ridiculous! For sure another one I'll be keeping an eye out for though.
