Living for music

In 2009, I saw Depeche Mode live in Israel, Italy, Hungary, Spain (two shows). I also had tickets for Romania, Bulgaria and Portugal, but the shows were cancelled due to Dave Gahan’s illness. Still, the trip to Porto was good fun!

I also went to two major Gothic festivals in Germany:

WGT, with 192 artists on the lineup. My review was posted on Darkwave.ro and

Blackfield, with 20 bands on the lineup. My review was also posted on Darkwave.ro.

2010 started well for me: on January 9, I saw Depeche Mode in Berlin, and on January 23, I saw them (again!) in Antwerp. The Belgian Depeche Mode experience was a real adventure that I will never forget! The fake tickets that I paid 500 euro for, Peddy the angel from heaven who helped us get in, the last metro, Andreea, me crying like a baby listening to Walking in My Shoes…it all seems like a detective story with a lot of suspense, and in the end the villain and the detective are a couple and they live happily ever after.

On May 8, I saw In Strict Confidence and Rabia Sorda in Prague at the Abaton electro festival. My review here.

On June 26, I am attending E-tropolis, an excellent indoor festival at Columbiahalle in Berlin, Germany (thank God it is indoors as the weather hasn’t been very friendly lately, and, hey, what’s a Gothic girl with drooling makeup ;). The lineup of the E-tropolis festival is impressive and compact. I expect to see 13 exquisite performances and take lots of pics! Next, Amphi festival! A new post on my blog will be dedicated to Amphi.

Until then, stay tuned to good music, and check Vivi‘s last.fm and blip.fm profiles!

Well, apart from all the happiness music brings to my life, I have another reason to be joyful: got my camera all geared up for the new photo experiences in Berlin ;). I look forward to testing my new stuff!

I´m sure that you will be in the right place, at the right time, using the right method with the right technique. And everything will be caught on your pics. A new great experience for you, Ms. Livingstone. ;-)
