I went to this Vampire rock concert last Friday night. To think that I didn't want to go. Sam had warned me: "you're not going to like it I am telling ya, heavy metal, gothic atmospherer, really scary..." Completely the opposite of what I like. Yet I went and it paid off, it was superbe. Unexpectedly funny, a gothic romantic story that truly amused me, brilliant musicians, so much talented, excellent selection of the songs, clever interaction with the audience, definitely a must see. The highlight was definitely the drummer's performance, I could have listened to him for hours, really engaging, perfect in his variations, clever in building up different rhythms starting from very basic patterns. I cannot say I was particularly impressed by the guitarists, but the "Total Eclipse of the Heart" performance literally had me on my knees: simply wonderful. Great night, extremely funny to see my colleagues in a different context! it was brilliant! I have not turned to the dark side, but I definitely have much more respect for vampires now!
