Zentralheizung of Death des Todes (7/10)
Start 21:05 / End 21:45
The band opened for Ty Segall last year at Festsaal (RIP), and those guys were a great surprise there. Yesterday, they repeated such level of performance: with their fast and raw Garage Punk mixed with sparks of Surf Rock, the band profused energy with no rest, making it impossible for anybody to stay still while following Zentralheizung’s wild sound. The German band is something to see live! Check here some of their songs if you don’t already know Zentralheizung of Death des Todes.
Die! Die! Die! (7/10)
Start 22:10 / End 22:40
The Pop Punk trio from New Zealand offered a great performance: even though the band started with an uncertain beginning, it succeeded in involving the audience, and induced the mosh pit more than once. Its musical proposal was too pop and teenage oriented after the ZODDT’s tornado, to be really impressive; nevertheless, the audience appreciated the show and moshed happily with singer Wilson, who didn’t miss a chance to jump off the stage to sing and mosh with people in the audience. We liked this Punk attitude!
Thee Oh Sees (8/10)
Start 23:10 / End 24:40
Once entered the venue one could have the impression to be in a sort of Festsaal without balcony. Too many similarities with the venue burnt down last Saturday night to be just a coincidence: the disco ball in the middle of the ceiling, the dominant red colour on stage as well as in the rest of the room. The Oh Sees was scheduled to play at Festsaal, and Lido was just a last minute replacement. Probably most of the people who appreciate the Berlin live scene had a catch in the throat on Sunday morning when knowing about the fire, and is now hoping to see the rebirth of Festsaal as soon as possible.
Thee Oh Sees is a side project born from the mind of Mr. Dwyer, where he puts his instrumental and experimental home recordings. The band torn the Lido apart. With its Garage Punk based music winking at Psychedelic and Noise Rock, the band embraced the crazy audience, which passionately showed its participation to the show from beginning to end! No light effects, no scenic design, just a 3-songs encore and a lot of sweat and energy, coming from the stage and going towards it, making the band and the audience one united thing. Thee Oh Sees was in a great shape: singer Dwyer made the part of the lion, and he was perfectly supported by the whole band, composed by high-quality musicians. Thee Oh Sees confirmed yesterday its fame for energetic live shows. The band is of high value, and might not even have collected all the fame it deserves. Go out and spread the word!
