I was looking at the list of concerts for November, and there seemed to be a show I wanted to see, like, every other day.
So I thought, well, why not see a show every day for a month?
Oslo isn’t London or New York, but it’s somehow one of the best cities in the world to see interesting live music. To prove the point, I’m going to see (at least) one concert per day during November.
I dare myself!
There’s probably not going to be much “rock”, because rock sucks. But I couldn’t come up with a better month name, so I’m sticking with it. Probably.
It would be fun to film (bits of) the concerts, so I bought this device:
It’s a Sony audio recorder, but it also has a camera built in. I have no idea whether it’s good or not… we’ll found out when Rockvember starts. On Saturday.
Eek. My poor liver.
“Og så var vi plutselig midt oppe i en slik intim situasjon som det heter. Det var i grunnen ganske hyggelig. Jeg mener, det er jo et slikt tiltak, men når man først er kommet igang, er det helt all right.”
It’s a very music journalist-ey book, with a dash of Wikipedia-induced Tourettes. “John Cale produced this album by Patti Smith in a studio, where only exactly two weeks short of twenty years before, Miles Davis had once ordered a ham sandwich two blocks away for $1.50, at 3 PM. The world would never be the same.”
