I've fallen a bit ill during the weekend. Ill enough to be given three days off from work, but not ill enough to keep me from performing. It was a rough battle, but a good one, and I would like to thank all the people who managed to come and see us.
If you want to listen to last night's concert, here's an exclusive recording on Last.fm.
Our next concert: January 22 at the Sublime. Stay tuned!
Check out some of these clips from our recent show at the Barby (which I've edited myself, mind you!). Remember - tomorrow we're playing at the prestigious Tmuna Theater at 22:00. Be there or be an equiangular polygon!
Other people might compare Gabriela to PJ Harvey. Since I only know about two PJ Harvey songs, I can't really support this comparison in a fundamental way. There is a slight resemblance in their appearance. There's also something in the voice that's similar. And Gabriela's combination of folk and alternative rock may very well be influenced by PJ Harvey's music. But all that matters not. What matters is that Gabriela is a well-established singer/songerwriter on her own account.
Last night, after much anticipation, I got to witness Gabriela live, with a full ensemble. I've been to an acoustic show in the past, which was very good, but I wanted to get the real experience, with the beats, the edgy guitars and the dirtiness. I was not disappointed. Gabriel and her band provided a well balanced, professional and straight-to-the-point concert and although the place was not packed, the band managed to connect to the energies that Gabriela's excellent songwriting provides.
We bought a copy of Gabriela's debut album Dirty Little Secrets, officially released on May 6 2008, and if you like kick-ass electrifying alternative rock, you should do the same! Unfortunately, this was her last concert for the time being, so say tuned for her return.
We'd like to thank all the friends and fans who arrived to our show on Monday! We had a real blast. It was the perfect send-off for Opher, I think. We will now be taking a short break from performing, but we will continue working on new recordings for our upcoming second album!
We still don't have a photo gallery operational on our site (ahem... Shai... ahem... *cough* Opher *cough*), so if you have a Facebook account, you can check out some of these photos!
If you don't have a Facebook account... then it's time to evolve, man. Get with the program! I mean, even SHAI has one now.
We will soon upload some recordings from this concert, and even some video clips, so stand by!
