Sophia - Dec. 14 '06: Abart Club, Zurich (CH), with Troy Von Balthazar
I LEFT YOU
WHERE ARE YOU NOW
OH MY LOVE
DESERT SONG NO. 2
BIG CITY ROT
THE RIVER SONG
After complaining that I haven't attended a concert in Abart for quite some time, this was my 3rd concert there this autumn and how much I was looking forward to that one!
I was there for the support act, but didn't give a lot of attention to it, I have to say. But after a great DJ-set (thanx a bunch for that!) Sophia got on stage. Wow! It's best if just post the setlist as it was written down and then one might get the picture what the concert was like!
Well it was lovely. Some of my friends were standing right in front of the stage, but as I just had some wisdom teeth taken out a few days earlier, I was afraid of people pushing etc. so I stayed a bit at the back, which wasn't bad either. The 1st part of the concert was more of an acoustic version and the second part sometimes almost turned into a post-rock-concert. I loved how some of the songs sounded quite different to the actual recording. It's hard to point out one song which I enjoyed most that night - was it "Pace"? Or maybe "Swept back", one of my all time fave songs? Hm... I can't decide on one single song, which means that I truly enjoyed the concert as a whole.
All in all: Simply beautiful even with tooth ache and no beer!
