    Thu 11 Dec – Mediæval Bæbes

    Having been turned on to the music of the Bæbes some years ago (back in 2002), it has taken me rather a long time to get around to actually catching one of their shows. Usually it is a matter of just plain poor advertising or the fact that they've been performing at some wacky event like the Joust or Witchfest in sunny Croydon, so it was a pleasant surprise to find advance details of the December shows here on Last.fm (Well done that man for posting them).

    I wasn't quite sure what to expect from a concert and not having checked out the groups website recently, I was a little surprised to find that there were only half a dozen ladies singing, but it proved to be more than adequate with the ladies running through a great selection of material, both old and new, over 2 sets.

    Fr., 30. Nov. '07 – The Mediæval Bæbes im K17/Berlin - Mirabilis Tour 2007

    Anfang Oktober '07 entdeckte ich mehr per Zufall das die Mediæval Bæbes in Deutschland auf Tour sind, hab mir natürlich Karten besorgt. Am Freitag war es dann endlich soweit.

    Veranstaltungsort war das K17 in Berlin - wie mir scheint ein Blackmetalclub in der Nähe der Frankfurter Straße. Vorherschende Farbe Schwarz, Personenkontrolle mit abtasten am Eingang, die Konzerthalle relativ klein, mit Bar und einer über die ganze Breite gehende Bühne. Auf der Bühne standen blumenumrankte Mikrofonständer und diverse Instrumente, hinten in der Mitte ein großer Gong, hinten links die Trommeln.
