The Burgtheater Vestibule is a great place for a nightly outdoor party. When the weather is good, a large part of the party can be outside.
Wandering in Bratislava a few moments this afternoon, this umbrella and her hair caught my eye.
MAK Nite is an evening with a temporary exhibition and music on Parkring.
Another good concert in the fabulous Melt series from Pazit . The Melt series in the Austellungsraum at 23 Gumpfendorferstrasse is the most vibrant concert series in Vienna now for electronic and experimental music. Pazit focuses usually on strong singer/songwriters and doesn’t really limit the series too much by genre. In the current series of concerts, there’s been real experimental, along with Falco revival Tanz Baby and even almost reggae.
Tanz Baby is a little bit kitsch with David Kleinl going somewhat over the top in his ersatz Falco persona. But like the original Falco, Tanz Baby is playful and fun. Everyone there had a great time.
Here are some photos.
The Neue Donau is the most fabulous outdoor swimming pool you can imagine.
Superb trumpet play, along with quiet mastery on the guitar. Your ears are there for Paolo Fresu but Ralph Towner makes it all possible.
I bought the Chiaroscuro CD while I was there. Surprisingly the CD is just a shadow of how Fresu and Towner play live together. This is one rare occasion where the live performance clearly outranks what the musicians can do in the studio. I guess you had to be there.
Porgy & Bess artistic director Christoph Huber was very animated after the show as well. It was one of the top five concerts I’ve ever attended there in five years.
