The Strange (tonight in Stuttgart)

Info on the band:
QuoteAt the beginning of the millennium, The Strange formed as a joint project by Croatian surf rockers The Bambi Molesters and Slovenia-based Seattle-born musician Chris Eckman (ex-The Walkabouts). Despite their excellent debut album Nights of Forgotten Films (2004), which received praise from global media, such as Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and Mojo, and a successful promotional tour featuring R.E.M. member Scott Mccaughey, it took no fewer than 14 years for the band to come together again.

In September, the band's second album, titled Echo Chamber, was released, the joint effort of an expanded ensemble, as the original band was joined by members of Croatian group My Buddy Moose and a two-piece brass section. The album also features guest appearances by singer-songwriter Irena Žilić and the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. The swirling layers of surf rock, blues, alt-country, jazz, American gothic and melancholia has been unanimously declared one of the best Croatian releases of 2018.

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds (August). Never seen them, so it's about time! Haven't seen a real concert this year so far, so it's about time! It's expensive and quite a bit to drive, but the setting should be special (just outside a baroque style palace) and I will use the opportunity to look at the town before the show.  :cool

The Damned in Nov and The Anti Nowhere League in Oct. Hoping they go ahead. Two bands have bailed out of Glasgow in recent days, with mystery illnesses...

Maybe a collective of three singer/songwriters tonight in a small club (not far from here). One example is Mäkkelä:

Possibly Thurston Moore (ex Sonic Youth) & band on Sunday.

I've decided to give The Waterboys show on Friday a miss, even though recent setlists do look good. For years I'd hoped they would play "nearby", but then I had to travel to Frankfurt or Munich in the past to see them at all.
Now they're coming to Stuttgart and I've lost interest. Ticket prices are not funny at all; Steve Wickham has left the band (only returns on special occasions); recent releases were not to my taste. Also, the venue (with seating) does not seem appropriate for "rock" concerts (in my humble opinion).  :'(

The 2 songwriters & storytellers on Thursday were quite good, a nice evening.

Thurston Moore Group last night was pretty loud & experimental.

Here's a good German review from their Munich show: https://www.sueddeutsche.de/muenchen/konzert-kritik-thurston-moore-strom-muenchen-1.5775834

TV Smith - it's been four years since I last saw him (blame it on the pandemic etc.)!
So it will be very good to see him again and some other old friends in the audience.  :happy

Hoping to see this lot later in the year (Oct.), but then again I might not be a reliable narrator...  :winking_tongue
