So here we were on a freezing evening at the Backstage in Munich which was the first gig of Buffalo Sunn’s / Riot Tapes’ Irish Rock Tour. And I tell you guys, these two bands have everything to warm you up on such a cold night!
Sure, Riot Tapes themselves play their songs in a rather electro-pop style, but the acoustic versions by Elaine are not less passionate and rocking in any way. My friends and the whole crowd were as impressed as myself!
After “brushing up their make-up” (Daniel), the others returned and gathered around Daniel’s mic in a circle. Interesting you may think? Definitely! And brilliant, if you ask me – the band sang acoustic songs backed by Daniel’s guitar which resulted in a strong, effective, pervading performance. At the end of the gig the crowd was so impressed that they kept clapping for an encore. And apparently the band was impressed as well, stating it would be the first time they played an encore.
All in all a perfect evening! The next day the guys were heading for Berchtesgaden were their even was sold out! More of upcoming tour dates for both bands are:
10/02/2015 – Chemnitz, Subway to Peter
11/02/2015 – Hannover, Rocker
12/02/2015 – Hamburg, Rock Café
13/02/2015 – Berlin, Magnet
I highly recommend you catch them at one of these gigs – your surely won’t be disappointed. Also make sure to check out their tunes on Soundcloud here (Riot Tapes) and here (Buffalo Sunn).
