David Lemaitre (6/10)
Start 20:50  / End 21:30
After surprising for the unexpected long queue outside the venue at 20:45, the evening started in a bad mood since I noticed my Spot at Festsaal (one of the best concert venue in Berlin for music choice and structure) has been already occupied! 10 min before the announced 21 o’clock the support band started: a trio with the singer from Bolivia playing a melodic rock with some south american influences. The reference is Jeff Buckley with his high-pitched voice and falsetto, even if the model is long far away. Not that bad but they didn’t realize to warm me up from the snowing weather. Nice to see the strange keyboard equipped with enlightening “wine bottles” and plastic sounding paper!

Wallis Bird (7/10)
Start 21:55 / End 23:35
The little irish elf and her band are pure energy: with their Folk Rock exchange continuously an energy flux from the stage to the public and vice versa. Wallis speaks to her audience, tells dirty jokes, guides him to sing along with her: she enjoys herself from the first minute to the end. The public sees this and he loves Wallis, as Wallis loves him. I had doubts to go to the gig but at the end I completely changed my mind: this is music for live experience and works much better on the stage than on album, thanks to Wallis that sprinkles energy for the whole concert along. I found really interesting the Rap-Reggae break in onomatopeic german performed by the drummer and Wallis playing drums: only live you have the chance to attend this particular mini-shows! If you weren’t here tonight, stand up your ass from the sofa the next time Wallis Bird plays in town and go to see her: you won’t regret it!
