How was your weekend? Did you enjoy Friday the 13th? haha~
As part of my diary blog entries I wanted to write a post about the concerts/festivals I visited this summer! I looove going to concerts, it's one of my favourite things to do <3
I didn't go to many/expensive concerts or festivals this year because I wanted to save up for Japan... and because of that I haven't bought tickets for some of the concerts I really wanted to see like Lana del Rey, CocoRosie or Emilie Autumn ;_; But anyways, I did quite enjoy the concerts I could go to !
* Betty Dittrich and The Baseballs
I went to see Betty Dittrich at an Open Air Concert and luckily The Baseballs played afterwards, who were really good as well ^__^
If you don't know her, Betty is a really cute girl that performs german songs inspired by the 60s and 70s! <3
Although it rained (unfortunately) we all wore flowers in our hair and I could dress in Vintage clothes, it was nice!
The Baseballs are quite popular in Germany, I guess? They had a lot of fans in the audience! They play modern songs from Rihanna, etc. with Rock'n'Roll music , good for dancing <3
I saw them at the wonderful 'Folklore Festival' in Wiesbaden, Germany! It was my first time seeing them and I was soo happy! They have such intelligent and moving lyrics, I really enjoy listening to their music for several years now!
This german band that is actually named 'fries' is maybe not that popular now, but they're really good and I like their attitude :) They are against discrimination, etc. On their shows everyone gets crazy and as you can see people in costumes were dancing around haha~
* Jennifer Rostock
I think this was probably the best concert of all *__* I love love love this women, she's so crazy and hot and has an amazing voice! Many of my friends don't really like her music, so I had to go to her concert at Folklore alone while my friends watched some other bands, but it was totally worth it!!! I had to wait two hours to get a place in the front row, it was very difficult! But during the concert I was just so moved and happy I needed to cry the whole time ^^' Jennifer even came down to her fans and I could hold her hands, I was very happy about it! I definitely want to go to a Jennifer Rostock concert again!
They also played at Folklore so we spontaneously decided to watch their performance! ^_^ They were really cool and elegant! In Germany, they had a popular song this year, called 'Ich bin morgens immer müde' (I'm always tired in the morning) haha~
Do I need to say anything about this concert? It was amazing! We went to see Paramore in Neu Isenburg, a town near Frankfurt! Hayley Williams has so much energy, it's just crazy! They played some of their most famous songs like 'decode' or 'ignorance', but also some songs from their newest album!
Besides that I visited concerts from sookee, a really cool lady and women's rights activist, and Folk Noir, who play medieval-inspired acoustic music
As you can see, I really like many different styles of music ^-^ Which kind of music do you like?
Also, I would love to go to a concert while I'm in Japan! Who knows? Maybe I'm lucky~
( Sorry for the blurry pictures, I couldn't take any good ones unfortunately, but I wanted to post them anyway! )
P.s.: I'm so happy I passed my driver's licence test this monday! I was afraid I couldn't make it and would have to wait until I'm back in Germany next year, but luckily everything went well ^-^
Only 11 days till my flight, yay ^__^
I wish you all a nice evening!
