2018 – My Year in Music: Gigs

2018 was quite a good year for me. A festival, quite a few gigs and a couple of discoveries that will stay with me forever.

It was also a record year for Scrobbling and perhaps no surprise that one of my discoveries tops my play charts by quite a long shot. Below are some of the highlights.

I Could “Do This Every Night” – Danko Jones Road Trip

In post #2 of this two part series here are some snaps and the highlights of the Talvi Festivaali that took place in Kuopio and Joensuu in February 2017.

Almost 2 years ago to the day Danko Jones were promoting their latest album, Fire Music, on a boat cruising between Finland and Estonia. This time around another new album, Wild Cat and a new mini-festival with even more suitable stable mates – Backyard Babies and Hardcore Superstar.

As Wildcat is released today, what better time to reminisce on a great couple of days while listening to a the great new album by Danko Jones. You can get Wild Cat here!!

2016 has been a weird year for Music

I wrote back in July bemoaning the music scene in Finland in 2016. I found few gigs of any worth to go to and although there have been some great individual gigs, there really hasn’t been too much to write about – thus the relative inactivity of the blog this year. Are things about to take a turn for the better in 2017?
