The Waterboys live in Athens 2019

The rainy and miserable weather on the first night made me jokingly think the band should have opened with “It’s Gonna Rain”, but with torrents already pouring down, it might have been a bit of a self-fulfilled prophecy anyway… I ended up driving to the venue early – just to be on the safe side – where I made the acquaintance of some lovely people at the front bar-ier.
 

The Waterboys - Where the Action Is

I was reading a few reviews about this album, and one in particular stuck out. One from a newspaper, you know the 4-5 line ones, where you wonder if the reviewer even bothered listening to the album or just “googled” some and came up with some quote… the album was dismissed as sounding dated… in that case the band and it’s sizable audience must have been happily living out of the hip bubble for ages, but isn’t that what timelessness is?

The Swiss trio Cellar Darling take a turn towards heavy progressive rock with the release of “Insomnia”: the first single from their upcoming second album, which is due to be released next year on Nuclear Blast Records.
