09 October 2018 Leuven (BE) - Stuk LabozaalBack to concert list
I played a concert at Stuk Labozaal in Leuven (Belgium) on the 9th of October 2018 — if you were there it would mean a lot to me if you would share your impressions and thoughts and maybe even some pictures with me!
It was so good it became bad in the most wonderful way.
«I’ve discovered you through YouTube when I was in a bad place and looking for new tracks to help me. At first, it was just about new tracks in a musical genre I liked, and that was about it. But then, one day, I was working and DOM played in the background. I was very (very) surprised to realise that I had to stop doing what I was doing and turn the volume up, something that I never do while working. There was something extremely powerful and tantalizing in the track and I couldn’t possibly listen to it while doing something else… and it would have been blasphemy to get to the next track just so I could work. It was just too good. So, what about the concert ? Well, I went there thinking that I would probably not be as entranced as I had been when listening to DOM the first time. How wrong I was. The live was infinitely more powerful than the album Strom, and Strom is already the most powerful album I’ve ever listened too. Seeing that I was already half-out-of-my-mind after listening to the complete album, the live left me… indescribable. I’m really struggling to express this. It’s like listening to a lifetime of experiences and emotions but with no word. I’m usually an emphatic girl, but this was something else. I’ve felt things more intensely than ever before and I can’t even put a name on it. And that is probably the best part. I can’t put a name on it. It was just magnificent, whatever I felt. For the duration of the live, I could perceive more. Of me, of others, of you. It’s like the veil that has been shoved onto my senses came undone for a moment. It was not about sadness or joy or anger or pride… It was just about the fact that there are feelings. They were there. They don’t need to be named to exist nor to be understood. For the longest of time after the end of the concert, I was stuck between laughter and tears and tiredness and elation. It was so intense I was left holding my breath. It might sound negative in some way but it’s not. I was glad I had a 2 hours ride home. So yeah, it was so good it became bad in the most wonderful way. It’s the best experience of my life (apart from me adopting my dog but it’s another story) and I am forever grateful for that. You thanked the public several time that evening, but really, I thank you. I thank you. You’ve managed to reach a part of my soul that was dormant until that fateful concert. I’ll be back for a next concert for sure (in Belgium, I’m just a student, I can’t really afford going too far). PS : Oh my goodness, that live was really too good. Just writing about it gives me shivers. And now that I think about it, you’ve played TARNAO. I mean HARNAO is my favourite track along with DOM and TAR. And you mixed 2 of those favorite… And you played DOM. And you played a fight…. Really, when I think about it, it’s kind of too good to be true.»
