Still Here / Europe 2011

Filed under: Clubbing & Gigs,General,Live Comedy,Music,Travel — decoded_ @ 12:52 pm

Hello, yes I’m still around.

It’s winter here in Sydney. I’ve not been up to much really. Lots of indoor activities, watching TV shows and movies, playing Portal 2, making music with Ableton Live, and spending hours sorting through digital music files, as per usual spending more time doing that than actually mixing with any of the music, or sorting out how to use my MIDI controller with Traktor Scratch Pro, which reminds me I need to install the new version I bought ages ago. I’ve also been putting my track ID skills to use on the mixesdb site, track-listing a bunch of sets.

Still listening to lots of music, a lot of my own creations, but also John Tejada‘s ‘Parabolas’ album, is getting a lot of plays, it’s really grown on me to become one of my favourite recent electronic music albums.

With nothing much on music/club/techno wise of interest to me, I’ve had a 2 month break from clubbing. I couldn’t miss seeing Jesper Dahlbäck in early June, and Alex Smoke [Live] on the w/end just gone though, both at Chinese Laundry, but that’s all I’ve got out to recently. I enjoyed their sets, heard some great sounds, but they were far from special nights out.

Seeing Sandwell District play in Melbourne for 5+ hours in a small underground venue, through a Funktion One, back in April was a special night out, heard so much excellent techno music. Hoping for more of that on our holiday…

Europe

Joanne and I are heading off to Europe soon for a holiday. We’ll be visiting these places:

Netherlands / Amsterdam
Germany / Frankfurt, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Münster, Hamburg
Sweden / Stockholm
Czech Republic / Prague
France / Paris, Bordeaux, St. Emilion
United Kingdom / London, Birmingham, Portsmouth, Windsor

We’re looking forward to visiting new places, re-visiting some places we love, doing lots of walking and sightseeing, catching up with friends and family, eating lots of fine food, and drinking fine wines (Bordeaux!), and of course checking out a lot of techno/music events and club nights.

Joanne has done an amazing job of researching, and booking things for our holiday. It’s going to be a busy one, but we’re both keen for that.

We’re not spending as much time clubbing in Berlin as we did on our last holiday, but I think we’ll be enjoying a lot more music we’re passionate about. We had a lot of nights out in Berlin last time, that were fun, but we heard way too much uninspiring tech-house/house music.

We’re both very much back into techno these days, sounds from people like: Function, Regis, (Sandwell District), Silent Servant, DVS1, Peter Van Hoesen, Mike Dehnert, Surgeon, Marcel Fengler, Roman Lindau, Marcelus, Lucy, Planetary Assault Systems, Xhin, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Norman Nodge, and Skudge, you get the idea. So, we’re planning to try and see many of them play while on our holiday, they are all pretty much EU based.

Some music/club/techno things we’ve locked in already, that I’m excited about…

The day after we arrive… Mystery Land 2011 in Amsterdam, which techno wise features: Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May, Richie Hawtin, Ben Sims, and in the Electric Deluxe area: Marcel Dettman, James Ruskin, Marcel Fengler, Speedy J and Dave Clarke. The event is huge! Hoping to see Rodriguez Jr. as well.

A Fachwerk label night with Mike Dehnert and Roman Lindau in Münster.

Seeing Surgeon playing in his hometown Birmingham.

A night at Berghain in Berlin with G-Man [Live], Norman Nodge, Marcel Fengler and more. Just excited to be going to Berghain again really.

I’ll list up the events properly soon.

As excited as I am to be heading off to Europe, still a little disappointed that back in Sydney while I’m away in September, I’ll be missing music events with Robag Wruhme, and Lucy. I’ve actually seen Robag Wruhme play before anyway. Plus stand up comedian Louis CK, and legend of comedy John Cleese. Have some laughs for me if you’re going.

Stephen Merchant
Stephen Merchant

Speaking of comedy, whilst we’re in London, we’ll be heading to dubstep’s home Croydon, to see UK comedy legend Stephen Merchant of Ricky Gervais, Karl Pilkington fame, doing his stand up show. Looking forward to that. I enjoyed hearing him voice Wheatley in the Portal 2 game. Enjoyed that game, but found it a little too easy puzzle wise.

More soon.

Sydney Comedy Festival

Over the last month or so my partner Joanne and I have been having a whole lot of laughs, out at a heap of live stand up comedy performances, leading up to, and as part of the 2011 Sydney Comedy Festival, which is running from the 11th of April until the 8th of May.

More info at the link below:

http://www.sydneycomedyfest.com.au/

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

Here are some of my thoughts on what we’ve seen so far…

11.03.11 : Billy Connelly (UK) ‘The Man’ Australian Tour’ @ Hordern Pavilion

Billy Connelly
Billy Connelly

I enjoyed seeing Billy Connelly, another of those long time legends of comedy to cross off the list having now seen. He’s a fantastic entertainer, very laid back, wandering about the stage, with that very recognisable accent/voice.

His show is basically a whole heap of funny stories that all splinter off from one another. Sometimes he finds his way back, other stories are left hanging, never to be completed, which is a little frustrating, but it’s a fun ride.

A lot of laughs, but not to the point of laughing till I hurt/cried, that’s my usual measure of how good a stand up gig is. I think I was perhaps expecting more energy from him, but understandably he is getting on in years now, as was the majority of the audience, never seen so many old people in wheelchairs at a comedy performance before.

I found the way he’d bend over laughing at his own jokes/stories a little much at times, first few times we’d laugh along, but then you’d just want him to get on with it. I remember he got quite pissed off at the noise of the air-conditioning in the Hordern when it cut in half way through his performance, refusing to continue until it was stopped a few minutes later, which messed with the vibe a little.

Overall I’m really glad I saw him, but I don’t think I experienced anything more than what I’ve already seen via his TV appearances over the years.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

15.03.11 : Eddie Ifft (USA), Stephen Grant (UK) @ Comedy Store

Stephen Grant
Stephen Grant

I’ve seen Eddie Ifft a bunch of times now, I like his style, some great laughs, but a lot of the same old material from previous performances, please write some new stuff! I think I’ve heard that dog/condom story every time I’ve seen him.

English stand up comedian Stephen Grant is someone I’ve not heard of or seen before. I really enjoyed his performance, lots of laughs, heaps of energy, fast pace. I loved how he tore shreds off a group of (rude) people in the front row, talking with each other during his performance, who does that?

The MC and warm-up acts were enjoyable too: Steve Phillp, Jennifer Wong, and Bruce Griffiths who did that deadpan (dad) joke/one liner style I love, like Elliot Goblet in years gone by.

We even had a wedding proposal at the Comedy Store that night, bizarre, a young Asian couple got up on stage, she said yes.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

18.03.11 : Weird Al Yankovic (USA) @ Enmore Theatre

Weird Al Yankovic
Weird Al Yankovic

Wow! Weird Al Yankovic live was awesome! Never seen him live before, and had no idea what to expect, but ended up being really impressed. I had a whole lot of laughs too. It’s a really well put together, fast paced, well rehearsed, entertaining show.

Basically he plays all his music hits live, with a really tight 4 piece backing band, who are all excellent musicians, and the keyboard player even adds all those crazy little sound effects. The whole set was really well mixed/audio engineered too.

Between songs, Weird Al and band go off stage to do a variety of costume changes, while Videos play across 3 screens on stage to keep us entertained. Featuring clips from his movie UHF (The Vidiot From UHF), clips of his very funny fake interviews with music stars (Al-TV), and lots of clips of various TV shows over the last 2 decades, where Weird Al Yankovic has been mentioned. During a few songs, the actual video clip to the song they’re playing live is running on the screens, in perfect sync!

Some of the songs performed live: ‘Polka Face’, ‘Fat’, ‘Eat It’, ‘Dare To Be Stupid’, ‘Smells Like Nirvana’, ‘You Don’t Love Me Any More’, ‘Money For Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies’, ‘Another One Rides The Bus’, ‘Amish Paradise’, ‘Gump’, ‘Couch Potato’, ‘The Saga Begins’, ‘eBay’, ‘Canadian Idiot’, ‘White & Nerdy’, ‘Trapped In The Drive-Thru’, ‘Bedrock Anthem’, and ‘Craig’s List’ to name a few. No ‘Like A Surgeon’ though.

During ‘The Saga Begins’, Darth Vader and 10 Storm Troopers walk on stage, at first standing strong/still, but by the song’s end they’re all moving, much to Darth’s annoyance, but then he gives in to groove at the end too, bloody funny.

2 standing ovation encores!

I’m going to see him again next time he tours, no question about it.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

11.04.11 : Stephen K. Amos (UK), Reggie Watts (USA), Craig Hill (UK), Tommy Tiernan (IRE), Mark Watson (UK), Gina Yashere (UK), Seann Walsh (UK), Glenn Wool (CAN), Dead Cat Bounce (IRE), Fiona O’Loughlin (AU), Steve Hughes (AU/UK), Chris Wainhouse (AU), Sammy J & Randy ‘Cracker Night – 2011 Sydney Comedy Festival Opening Night Gala’ @ Enmore Theatre

Cracker Night 2011

This time we got in early, and got tickets for the Enmore Theatre Cracker Night, the opening of the Sydney Comedy Festival gala night. Last year we saw it at the Parade Theatre at N.I.D.A in Kensington, I wrote about it here.

You never know which acts your going to see until the night, which is exciting. FOXTEL was filming and broadcasting from the Enmore Theatre on this night too.

I had a lot of fun, lots of laughs, value for money with the amount of comedians and how long the show runs for. Stephen K. Amos was the MC for the show, and did a fine job.

I really enjoyed Reggie Watts and his crazy sample/loop music and crazy voices, Tommy Tiernan was excellent too. I’m usually more of a fan of UK/USA comedians than Aussie ones, but Aussie now living in London comedian Steve Hughes said some bloody funny stuff, keen to see him again. A few acts were not really my type of comedy, never been a fan of Fiona O’Loughlin (AU), but still got some laughs out me.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

12.04.11 : Daniel Sloss (UK) ‘My Generation’ @ The Yalumba Wine Bar Enmore Theatre

Daniel Sloss

This year Joanne and I decided we would make sure to check out some stand up comedians we’ve never heard of/seen before. Having a quick look on YouTube for clips of all the comedians featuring at the Sydney Comedy Festival, we found some we liked.

20 Year old Daniel Sloss from the UK was one of them, he’s been working as a stand up comedian since he was 16.

He performed in the tiny side room/bar of the Enmore Theatre. He was great, young but not in an annoying way, quite humble, a nice range of topics, some good laughs. You can tell the rough/dark side off life is something he’s yet to experience though. He’ll get better with age for sure.

There were a handful of kids under 13 with their dad at this gig, which made for an uneasy vibe, and probably altered some of the material. Kinda scary when the guy on stage is closer in age to them, than a lot of the small audience there that night.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

23.04.11 : David O’Doherty ‘Somewhere Over The David O’Doherty’ @ The Forum Theater (Melbourne)

David O'Doherty
David O’Doherty

In Melbourne for a few days over the Easter break, during the last days of the Melbourne Comedy Festival, which is massive compared to the Sydney one, with 100s more performers, and so much better organised, hyped and advertised. So Joanne and I thought we should at least see something while we’re in town.

David O’Doherty, saw him in Sydney almost a year ago, thought he was hilarious, so decided to see him in Melbourne, which was actually his last show as part of the festival. He was excellent, lots of laughs, but a much shorter show, with less songs than the previous time. He seemed happy and in good spirits, bouncing around the stage in his cape, quite the opposite of the last time we saw him, poor guy was suffering from a nasty gastro bug then, guess that’s why he was so narky. A great show, but was left wanting more.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

28.04.11 : Steve Hughes (AU/UK) ‘Conspiracy Realist’ @ Factory Theatre

Steve Hughes
Steve Hughes

Back to the Sydney Comedy Festival, out on a rainy Thursday night at the Factory Theatre in Marrickville. As I mentioned I saw ‘The Heavy Metal Comedian’ Steve Hughes at the Cracker Night, and thought he would be great to see again… and he was, bloody funny, almost laughing till pain/crying. A great mix of intellectual pondering, questioning our ways in society, paranoia and true-blue Aussie grit, some really funny and interesting observations. Love the way he takes the piss out of bogan/sport culture. Having Enya play at the end of his performance was nice too. At the Cracker Night he mentioned he loves Heavy Metal and Enya.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

28.04.11 : Guy Pratt (UK) ‘Wake Up Call!’ @ Factory Theatre

Guy Pratt
Guy Pratt

Not many people know of this guy, as was obvious by the really small amount of people (muso nerds) who saw him last night, but it made for a much more intimate show. He’s a fantastic bass player, turned stand up guy, who loves to tell tales of his adventures in rock’n’roll touring, and playing bass with many big names in music. Have a read of these:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_Pratt
http://guypratt.ricardopadua.com

I thought he would be really interesting to go see, and he was. I really enjoyed his show, he’s very charismatic. Heard some great stories about him touring with the likes of Robert Palmer, Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, and Bryan Ferry, recording with Madonna (he did all that awesome bass work on ‘Like A Prayer’), and Michael Jackson, and much more, could have listened to him for hours. Each now and then he gets out his bass, and plays us a bit of what he’s been talking about, impressing us with his phat bass licks. I wish he had a Q+A session at the end.

I actually saw him play live with Icehouse way back in the 1980s.

He’s got a book out too ‘My Bass And Other Animals’, which he signed for us, purchasing from him after the show, top bloke.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-.

More comedy coming up next week…

Lots Of Laughs : Robin Williams : Arj Barker

Filed under: Live Comedy — decoded_ @ 4:51 pm

Robin Williams
Robin Williams

A month ago, Tuesday 16th November, Joanne and I went and saw actor and comedy legend Robin Williams, perform his ‘Weapons Of Self Destruction’ stand-up show, at the massive Sydney Entertainment Centre, where he sold out 4 nights in row, we went to his last night, our first time seeing him live.

Tickets were close to $200, not cheap, and those were the lower priced tickets! But, after it was all over we felt we got value for money. He was excellent, an extremely funny and entertaining performance. He had us laughing non stop for his whole two hour show, laughing till we had tears in our eyes and pains in our side.

Keeping the energy level high his entire show, working his way through a wide range of topics, at a blistering pace, with some nods to his past film and TV work thrown in too. Never a dull second.

I’m really glad we decided to go see him. I struggle to find the right words every time I open my mouth, he didn’t slip up once the entire show. I guess he’s had many years and 100s of performances to perfect it.

He has certainly come a long way since the ‘Mork & Mindy’ TV show. I loved that show as a kid in the late 70’s, early 80s. I really like him in his more serious film roles, like ‘One Hour Photo’, and ‘Insomnia’, I’ve watched both of these again recently, great films.

Aussie lads The Umbilical Brothers doing warm up got some good laughs too, usually not a fan, but they had me laughing.

And now for something completely different… Slowing the pace right down…

Arj Barker
Arj Barker

Arj Barker at the State Theatre, performing his ‘Let Me Do The Talking’ show, Tuesday 7th December.

I’ve seen him perform a few times now, he always brings the laughs, with his very laid back, slow-burn style comedy, with humorous observations on our use of technology, and on our on-line, social network connected lives. I love the way he pulls back the microphone and hits us with that radio announcer voice, for stats and facts.

He had some great digs at JB HiFi (how many there are, everywhere, and how you usually can’t walk out of one without buying anything), and he loves to pay out our Australian accent, I think he does it so well now, because he spends so much time. It’s interesting how he performs in the regional areas first before doing the cities each time he’s out here, gathering material I think.

Unfortunately this performance will be remembered mostly because of some idiot in the audience who heckled via a loud/long whistle a few times during the performance, Arj eventually stopped the show, demanding the guy was ejected before he would continue, which darkened things a bit, but brought a big cheer when the guy was actually ejected, and then the comedy continued. Not one of my fave, or the best Arj performances, but I had some great laughs. Think I laughed more at the older material he fell back on a few times, than the newer stuff.

A feature, and review of the same performance here:

More laughs coming up next year, seeing a couple of other legends of comedy: Weird Al Yankovic and Billy Connolly

July 25, 2010

Bill Bailey @ State Theatre – Sydney : 23.07.10

Filed under: Live Comedy — decoded_ @ 2:18 pm

Bill Bailey

We went and saw U.K. stand-up-comedian, musician, actor Bill Bailey perform live on Friday night at the State Theatre here in Sydney, and he was bloody funny! Joanne got us great seats too, about 8 rows from front stage, just left of centre.

He’s sold out a bunch of shows here in Sydney, and after seeing him, my first time, I can see why, very funny! Exactly my style of humour too.

I really enjoyed his performance, laughed a whole lot, and was entertained from start to finish. It was a great mix of dry, observational, stand-up material, and funny songs played with guitars and synths/keyboards, even a Tenori-On got put to use. I loved his Gary Numan and Kraftwerk covers, one of which somehow flowed into Last Christmas by Wham, but sung in German. He also paid out on a lot of commercial music via parody, not that familiar with a lot of the popular music/artists he paid out on.

The thing that most impressed me was how he casually dropped all these random, funny comments during his show, things like: “I’ll probably end up being one of those old nutters that yells at traffic while carrying shopping bags home” and then during his 3rd encore, he played classical piano to a short film, with contained footage of him doing everything said in all those random comments all throughout his performance, it had me in stitches, laughing till I hurt.
