September 2018-December 2018: A new season of gigs Part 2

logo gigs2018 has been (and still is) a very generous year on what concerns the gigs that have been organised in London and it seems that next year will be similar, but we will talk about this in a few weeks’ time. For the moment let’s go through the reasons that will make us enjoy the end of this year and of another season.

Upcoming GIGS

The Dresden Dolls London gig poster 2018The Dresden Dolls live at The Troxy on 30,31 October 2018: The Dresden Dolls made a huge impact on the audience (small at first, huge in the years that followed) when they released their 4 studio albums from 2003-2008. It was the sheer energy of Amanda and Brian on and off stage, the cabaret aesthetics, the ‘in-your-face’ attitude, the dare of the lyrics, the amazing lyricism on the piano and the voice, that captured our hearts from the very beginning.The band hosted design competitions for the artwork of their albums in which many fans participated without a second thought, the dedication of the fans that increased exponentially after each release was unprecedented. In other words, this was a uniquely different, beautiful underground band with a punk attitude and unparalleled musical magnetism. For some of us, The Dresden Dolls was one of the best bands that has ever existed. Many of us had not had the chance to see this band perform before they stopped collaborating for a while and before they stopped releasing new albums. Three years ago, on Record Store Day, a one-off show of The Dresden Dolls at Rough Trade in Brooklyn was announced and it made our hearts beat faster, as some of us considered travelling there to attend this performance. The band was kind and graceful enough to live stream the entire gig which we then reviewed.
