Hey hey hey!
Before I start listing upcoming events I would like to make two comments.
First, I wanted to share my deep admiration for Exarsis gig on 22nd of February. Of course, Terrorizer and Nile nailed their performances but since I was expecting them to do so, so it was Exarsis who won my favour. I personally really like when a band is enjoying themselves on the stage, when they do not only play their music but also jump, dance and headbang along with the audience. In my opinion, this changes the whole atmosphere of the concert and relation between viewers and performers is more relaxed. It gives you the feeling that you are all sharing a good time here and this gig is not another day at work for musicians but truly a pleasure. Of course, I understand that not all of the instruments would allow you to do some free running around the stage and not all of the songs are fast enough to headbang and jump, but still, I am personally very fond of this kind of performances. Exarsis did a lot of that and the energy they had on the stage was infectious. I was also very impressed by their hair waving everywhere due to their jumping and running around and seriously – there is a lot of to admire…
Second comment regards this blog’s structure. I am afraid that current form is a little bit too confusing so I want to try something new. I shall call March “a month of experimenting”. The idea is the following: I will list here all of the March concerts and describe some of them separately in the posts which will follow. Separately, one event – one post. This means much more posts but they will be much shorter. Hopefully this will make the navigation through the gigs more clear. At that point I would like to apologize to all my imaginary (yes, I know) readers for possible confusion.
