Elfish @ Männedorffest

During the research for my Best of Swiss Underground playlist I visited elfish's homepage and just happened to see that they played a concert the same evening!

The gig was part of Männedorf's village fête and the first time I've seen elfish live in almost a year. Despite the hot temperatures they played a terrific concert mixing old favorites from their CD Don't Ask Why with a handful of new songs which range from quiet meditative pieces to rocky party tunes.

I'm looking forward to visit another show once I'm back in Switzerland and to listen to many more new songs :)

The Best of Swiss Underground

I'm a big supporter of Swiss Bands, especially young ones who play cool music but haven't managed to make a break-through yet. So before going to the US I wanted to compile a playlist featuring songs from my favorite Swiss bands (one apiece).

It's been a while since I last posted about my number of scrobbled songs.

Renaissance Dancing

Today I attended a Renaissance Dancing class in Lenzburg organized by Andreas Rutschmann. We learned several different dances such as Hole in the Wall (an English Country Dance), Branle Cassandre (a Folk Dance from the north of Spain), "Lass den Lenz uns Grüssen" (an old dance from Germany). It was a terrific experience and I can recommend these events to anyone with a liking for dancing. The next course will be held on September 21st again in Lenzburg.

A couple of impressions can be found in my gallery.

Treacle Mine Road Saga: The Pictures

My pictures of the Treacle Mine Road Saga VI can be found in my gallery.

The day after the play I spent wandering around Vienna. I visited Schloss Schönbrunn and the inner city. Pictures of this excursion can also be found in my gallery.
