You’re the one I follow
Follow to the middle
Middle of the shadows
Far away from all the sorrows.
Appletree Garden Festival, Diepholz, Germany. 28-29 June 2013
Crystal Fighters were Saturday’s Secret Act and they even stole the headliners, the Shout Out Louds completely the show. The headliners of last year appeared the evening after the big thunderstorm when everyone was sun dried and beer rescued again and brought back the memories of last years summer night love stories. At the time of their sparkling gig, I was just chatting with some other musicians behind the stage, which meant missing out on the love motion in front of the stage and struggling with the feeling to jump and dance like bananas (as I was still trying to establish a semi-professional image for SlashMuse backstage). Feedback from the glittering, Handbrotzeit-eating, mudd-dancing crowd of love under the old apple trees was that Crystal Fighters were their dance highlight.
The other big success was SOHN, who’s ”Zugabe” gave me serious goose bumps although I am not easy to bring to physical reactions (except for some avangardistic dance moves) from music. It was magical. SlashMuse’s favorits, Fenster were supposed to start just the second the crazy thunderstorm shoke the apple trees and drowned a lot of our tents. Therefore most people where still busy getting buckets full of rain out of their tents when they finally played their lovely tunes. Highlight, drummer Rémi, who despite the rain played in socks!
