A couple of weeks ago Kellari had six bands performing during a mini-festival. We only went there to see two: Viikate and Amorphis (post and pictures coming later). The other bands weren’t that interesting and since they were using two stages it would have meant risking front row places if we’d seen some of the other bands.
We went to see my hometown boys in Kellari the other night in their first gig of two in Joensuu. We specifically chose the first gig, since the bands has a fairly damp reputation and as such the risk of getting a poorer performance the second night is there. It’s also a reason why we didn’t go see them for a long time, because all of the festival recordings we’ve seen of them playing have been disappointments. Luckily, like the last time we saw them they didn’t disappoint now.
November has already proven itself to be a busy month for us in seeing bands. Last weekend we saw Viikate and Amorphis (pictures coming sometime soon ;) and yesterday we drove to Kuopio to catch The 69 Eyes. I had access to shoot the three first songs even though there wasn’t a pit available.
