Great gig from Scott McCloud's (ex-Girls Against Boys) latest band, plus debut concert of a new small Slovenian supergroup, plus interview with Scott after, plus meeting a lot of friends in one night - what can be better that this? :)

Magnet club, Berlin (Germany), 01/11/2011
While in Berlin, I was really happy to see once again Yuck, really cool young indie rock band from London. I saw them first time this summer at FM4 Frequency festival, and I really liked their music - mix of Dinosaur Jr. meets Yo La Tengo plus a bit of Pixies and Sonic Youth...

Antje Öklesund, Berlin (Germany), 29/10/2011
Adriano Celentano Gebäckorchester is a group of musicians performing old Italian pop songs using a name of a famous Italian singer, songwriter, comedian, actor and film director as a hommage. Their gig was mixed with a birthday party, so the level of dance, singing and fun among the crowd in the crowded underground club Antje Öklesund was quite, quite high!

Pogon Jedinstvo, Zagreb (Croatia), 30/09/2011
My second gig the same evening after the cool Handsome Furs was the Swedish pop rock collective I'm from Barcelona. I'm saying collective, 'cause they have about 29 (!) members, though when touring, it's "just" somewhere between 10 and 15 of them on stage.

Summer eco music festivalThe idea to have a rock festival on the beautiful Croatian seaside seems so logical, but it took some time to actually pull it.
