Journal under construction! Lots of videos, pictures and reviews are missing. I am adding stuff all the time, but I don't have much time anymore.

Welcome to my nearly complete list of artists I saw live in 2009! This journal contains a chronologically sorted list with all artists I saw live in 2009, including pictures, videos, reviews and more. The reviews part is still under construction.

2007 - 2008 - 2009 - 2010 - 2011 - Albums I own + Band merch

This journal is more than just a list. Every artist I have ever seen live, I do my best to upload pictures for, write bio's and tag them (often I see artists without plays etc). I am also planning on adding lists of who I have seen the most times, who I have went to most concerts with, what venues I've been to the most and which artists I have the most album's of. When the lists are finished I'll make nice graphs out of them.

Green color means that this concert was awesome.

I also keep a personal tag list of all artists I have seen live, which you can find here: artists I have seen live.

I started to add reviews in November/December 2009, so reviews for the older events will probably contain factual errors etc.

The syntax is:
day month year ({link to} event title (day # {for festivals}), {link to} venue name, city, county, country)

27 November 2009 (Concert, Metropolis, Stavanger, Rogaland, Norway)
Frøken Fryd (, Stavanger, Rogaland, Norway)
Kråkesølv


After listening to these guys on Spotify and Lydverket, I fell in love. Found a free demo thingie online, which I loved even more. First up was Frøken Fryd, which were playing pretty tight tonight. Their new song had a few dissonant parts which I liked. I think it's time to move on from the girly pop rock...... don't care about what the record companies or the manager wants.. Anyway, Kråkesølv. Surprisingly young, from the very awesome city of Bodø. Playing beautiful indie pop and post-rock. Fits perfectly with my favorite artist at the moment, Cymbals Eat Guitars. They were joking about their mistakes and generally having a good time. I absolutely loved it and I'm sad I didn't get to buy a CD.. They're also playing tomorrow at Martinique, if I'm lucky I can see them there after my own concert. Perfect concert.

28 November 2009 (Concert, Metropolis, Stavanger, Rogaland, Norway)
Steinbitt
Hamu(e)mon
Battle of Jericho

We (Hamu(e)mon) had a band practice earlier on the day, when we got a call from Iris about out our sound check time.. We suddenly realized we had to flee from Eirik's house, to catch the train. Which we did, by 1-2 minutes.. but there was no train at that time, as this was a Saturday... so we had to wait another 30 minutes, but luckily the sound checks were a little delayed.

The first band, Steinbitt, could only play one song (I believe it was a cover), which was pretty bad. We didn't know that they only were playing 1 song, so I did not have time to warm up, thus making me tired in the arms after only 1 song -> making me play sloppy. I don't believe it was terrible though, but not my/our best concert. This was our last concert ever, but we didn't make any fuzz about it.

I don't remember much from Battle of Jericho. I left before Arlie Mucks played. I did not go to the Kråkesølv concert at Martinique as I planned :(. anders_sn did, and he got a t-shirt + a signed CD :(.

18 December 2009 (Concert, Sandnes brygge, Sandnes, Rogaland, Norway)
The Norwegian Fords (/, Sandnes/Stavanger, Norway)

The most remarkable thing about this day was probably that it was the coldest day "ever" in Sandnes.. This was my first visit ever to Sandnes brygge (Sandnes harbor), a relatively new cafe. The concert locals were surprisingly big (I know there is a big stand-up scene in Sandnes, which uses this stage). A whole bunch of people from the music "line" at school was there, as The Norwegian Fords consists of teachers from Lundehaugen vgs. Two pupils were also there as choir girls. As I can't remember if I liked this band the first time I saw them live, I can't really compare the concerts, but I do believe that this was better than the last one. It did get a little boring - not my type of music, but it was okay.

19 December 2009 (Concert, Arkivet, Stavanger, Rogaland, Norway)
Adlib (ish , Stavanger/Sandnes, Norway)

Swing and Sweet (standard , Stavanger, Norway)

This concert was a part of the weekly jazz concerts held every Saturday on Arkivet nattbar (the basement of Newsman, Stavanger) by Stavanger Jazzforum. hLeks picked me up in what can best be described as a snow storm, and we had to drive in 50km/h on the highway. After battling with the parking meter, we found the place (which did not serve ice tea or cacao). AdLib was even tighter, jazzier and funkier than I had expected. Skilled, young, musicians, sweet songs, great solos and yeah. The kind of jazz I enjoy. Before Swing and Sweet entered the stage, Eva Espensen's grand daughter sung a Christmas carol, which was an epic fail (sorry if you read this, but it's true :))

Swing and Sweet played the kind of jazz I call "standard jazz". Nothing special. Piano, bass, drums and female vocals. *yawn*

___


22nd December 2009 (Gnizzt EP release concert, Martinique, Stavanger, Rogaland, Norway)
Statsbakeriet (, Stavanger, Norway)
Gnizzt (, Sandnes/Stavanger, Norway)

As the Tuesday quiz was delayed, so was the concert.. But at 22:30, Statsbakeriet started.. played their songs.. and stopped. Statsbakeriet isn't really a band I enjoy much, too simple music and corny violin. Then Gnizzt entered the stage.. and didn't really impress me too much actually. I loved their sound (from the 2007 EP/last time I saw them), but this time it was kinda dull. The bass wasn't very distinctive, should be a lot more bass in the bass.. So, I did not get the "Gnizzt feeling", but I did enjoy the concert, and I did like the new songs. Me and Anders both got a free EP.

___


24th December 2009 (Christmas church service, Utne kyrkje, Utne)
Nå musikklag (, Nå, Hordaland, Norway)
Gro Belsnes Eide (, Hordaland, Norway)

Not exactly a concert, but whatever. Nå musikklag played 4 known Christmas "carols", Gro Belsnes Eide played the church organ. Nå musikklag played pretty well.

___


28th December 2009 (Discovery festival (day 3), Tribute, Sandnes, Rogaland, Norway)
Hard Luck Blues Band (/, Stavanger, Rogaland, Norway)
Aunt Mary ((70's) , Fredrikstad, Østfold, Norway)


It was announced that you should buy tickets in good time, so we were gonna be there around 20:00 (when the doors opened), but anders_sn managed to cack-up his tires, and had to change tire and car.. but we did manage to get tickets, 300 NOK cheaper than everybody else (last concert ever with "kulturkortet"). Since we had 1 hour before Hard Luck Blues Band started, we found a parking "house" (dunno what that is in English), went inside the stair room, and made weird sounds using objects we found, and recorded them. I'm sure I'll use the sounds on some kind of Tecfan project. Anyway, Hard Luck Blues Band was pretty cool. They had fun on stage, the guitar solos were very soulful, and the bassist was playing extremely tight. I do believe this was my first blues concert, and I know for sure toddneM would have liked this. (oh btw, I thought every second guy in the bar was Gisle, my English teacher from Jåttå vgs, but I was wrong every time! However, I did know one of the "older" guys ^^. Ole Svela, the manager of Terraex, the arranger of Blackmoon Festival).

Then Aunt Mary. They had this über old, analog, (probably) Leslie (with open tone cabinet), which sounded great. From the very start, the atmosphere was terrific. Jan Groth spoke to us (the audience) in a nice way, and there was two-way communication the whole time. Since the original bassist is unable to play bass anymore, the bassist of Wig Wam (Bernt Jansen) played bass, and he did it extremely well, although his clothing style was more 80s than 70s.. Anyway, I am extremely happy I went. This was one of the best concerts ever. The 70s feeling was definitely there, although there were no hippies, only old men.
