This fire is out of control

What on Earth can motivate people to drive in the unbearable summer heat to anther country? Got two words for you: Franz Ferdinand. Even though I've already seen them live I knew it was one of those "longlasting" relationships so I couldn't resist convincing Jota to go with me to the concert. Spinach Fairy tagged along and so we headed towards beautiful Italian city of Ferrara.

Our timing was amazingly perfect. Despite an hour long waiting at the Italian "pay toll" stop we arrived just in time to hear Franz Ferdinand rehearsal, have a couple of beers and some cheap junk food and to take a walk in the city.

The concert was held in the open space of Ferrara Castel and the place was not too crowded. The Cribs seemed fairly average but then again they were not even close to what we all were waiting for - almost two hours of pure joy provided by four Scotsmen.

And so they did - the concert was outstanding! Set list consisted mostly of Franz Ferdinand album, few songs were taken from You could have it so much better and we got to hear quite a lot of new stuff - soon to be released in their third album. What an energy! What a music! What a performance!

40' , Come one home and This Fire were absolute highlights of the evening, not to mention Jacqueline, Fallen and Michael. I missed Darts of pleasure and This boy but I guess the idea of concerts is to leave the audience wanting more. Well, it was successful.

According to what I heard, third album will be much better than the second one and a bit more diverse than the first one. I simply can't wait to get my hands on it. Until then - enjoy the highlights:

Heh, po fotkah sodec si stal enih tri vrste za mano. Res zakon show. Cribs so mi bli totalno brezvezni in ne vem zakaj jih Alex tako forsira, FF so pa zmagali. Agree tudi glede novih komadov - slisi se zabavno in predvsem sveze. Pridete slucajno pojutrijsnjem na Interpol?

Cherry said...

@blaž: nope, nismo ostali, žal obveznosti v Slo naredijo svoje - če bi se dalo bi seveda prespala še par dni but I'm not that rich. 3 dcl piva 3 eur? Ish don't think so....

@trip - Spinach fairy je pogruntala, da je pevec od Cribs morda fant of Alexa ;) - honestly to bi se mi zdel edini opravičljiv razlog. Interpole bom tokrat žal morala preskočiti - če pa bodo kaj takega kot so bli v Muchenu verjamem, da bo fantastično. Enjoy!

Lukc said...

res fajn! pa noben mi ni povedal, da so Francoski Ferdinandi! Grrr ... ta bend mi je celo kul in nimam ciničnih opazk na njiha račun!

Cherry said...

Lukc, škoda, da nisi šel zraven, k smo imeli še en plac v avtu.

Sicer pa še vedno ostane Sziget ;)

Kaj naj rečem? Tako pozno, mislim. Sem imel zamerkano, kot se reče v Celju, in sem upal, da sem bom spomnil česa bolj zabavnega kot zgolj "hvala", potem sem pa imel par izgubljenih vikendov. In sem pozabil. Se opravičujem. A je to sploh kakšno opravičilo? Ne, ni glih, ne? Ampak vseeno: najlepša hvala za sandale :) Aja, še tole: meni so pa Cribbs fajn (dvojčka in njun mlajši brat plus Johnny Marr - le kaj naj pri tem ne more biti všeč?). Res pa je, da bi bilo krasno, če bi imela Spinach Fairy prav, ampak Ryan Jarman hodi s Kate Nash. Oziroma je. Oziroma še? Kaj pa če jo je res pustil za Alexa... Huh? Ne?

Cherry said...

Hja, takle mamo ko se tile bendaši tkole kurijo med sabo...

Glede Alexa sem vseeno optimistična, konec koncev se je tudi Damjan Murko poročil ;)
