The Knife (7/10)
Start 21:00 / End 22:30
At 19:45 there weren’t any free spaces to park your bike within a 200m radius around the venue. This fact alone describes the hype surrounding The Knife at the momemt. The C-Halle was packed, inside, outside, everywhere. Something like this it’s usually reserved just for big stars of the music legend.
Before the concert a group of women and men dressed just only of briefs and bodysuits tried to warm the audience for about 15 minutes with a sort of soft-porn dance on a Hip Hop base. It resulted in something between the hilarious and the ridiculous.
The Knife started after a while with an Electro Noise intro, to then switch to its typical electro music. Its proposal between Synthpop, Indietronica and Trance is really fresh and personal in the electro scene. The Knifes music doesn’t stink of plastic, it’s not easy to digest and it has no mainstream sound at all. The Knife’s music has got an acid flavour, which makes me wonder how the band could achieve such a global success. The show was supported by amazing light effects, and most of the songs were danced on stage by a group of masked dancers, all as a sort of electro “Broadway”. It was a show, where the music wasn’t the main actor but it merged together with the lights, the dancing act and the good atmosphere in the overcrowed venue.
