The 1975 at Täubchenthal Leipzig

I finally got to see The 1975 live. I had to wait a long time for that. At first I wanted to see them in February with a friend. In the running up to that concert I really got into their music.

I listened to some of their songs before, but at the point when I knew I was going to see them I started to really listen to the whole album over and over again and I kind of fell in love with it.

But then, my right foot got into the way, because I broke it and I wasn't able to attend any concerts for half a year or so. Therefore no The 1975 for me.


Starter For 10

Here's to me getting easily obsessed with people, especially with actors who I really like. When I see one who's acting is brilliant I want to watch every film they're in.
That's why I watched "Starter for 10", because of James McAvoy and Benedict Cumberbatch.

It's been fun but not brilliant at least not very deep. But you can have a nice evening watching it.

The film is about a boy, Brian (James McAvoy), who gets into college and has to say goodbye to his old friends and settle in in the new environment. To get together with some people and because he's been a fan of University Challenge since he was a little boy, Brian joines the quiz team of the university, which takes part in the challenge.
He falls for the pretty Alice (Alice Eve), who is also on the team, but he also likes to spend time with Rebecca (Rebecca Hall), with whom he has more in common, but she's a little Geek and on the first look not as pretty as Alice.
Not only is Brian torn between these two women, but he's also caught between his new life at a posh college and his old working-class life at home.

The set up shows the struggles of the life of a student, not the academic ones, but the ones concerning the private life. And it's very relatable, when you are or have been to university. 

This relatability and the funny and also the sad scenes troughout the film make it a good watch, even though you'll know very early in the film, how it will end. 


Passenger at Jahrhunderthalle Frankfurt

Last weekend I've been to Frankfurt with one of my best friends to see Passenger. When she at first asked me, if I wanted to come with her, I was a bit sceptic if I really want to. Don't get me wrong, I really, really like Mike’s music. I just didn’t know, if his concerts were fun, because it’s such chilled out and quiet music. But I decided to give it a try.

And I wasn’t disappointed. It was a brilliant mix between his very slow and sad songs and some of the livelier song, which got the audience clapping. And he didn't just play his new songs, but also some of his old ones.

He also sang a song (“Start a Fire”) with his support act – The Once. They were really good as well and had nice voices, even though I wasn’t too much into their music – genre-wise. A bit too folksy… But Passenger and them together sounded great, you can watch a little video of it at the end of this post.
