I bought a new recorder, a Sony PCM M-10 to replace my old iRiver H320. It should arrive on Tuesday. Now I'm looking for a concert to go to next week before the run of Godspeed shows on August 5 - 7. Just to try out the gear. But because of the summer holidays there's not that much going on, most venues are closed, and all bands are playing summer festivals, which I hate going to. So help me pick a concert, I'll hopefully get a nice recording out of it.
Here's the shortlist, see also my last.fm schedule
. If you know of some other concert that's not listed, let me know. It needs to be on a drivable distance (so basically anywhere in between Amsterdam, Brussels and Cologne), and between July 30 and August 3:
The Soft Moon at MTC, Cologne on 30 Jul 2013
Zomerparkfeest on 1 Aug 2013
◯ + Red Apollo + Jag Hatar at Aetherblissement, Ehrenfeld on 1 Aug 2013
Micro Festival 2013 on 2 Aug 2013
Donavon Frankenreiter at Luxor, Köln on 2 Aug 2013
...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead + Woven Hand at FZW, Dortmund on 2 Aug 2013
Absolutely Free Festival on 2 Aug 2013
Cold Cave + Holy Strays at Brass, Forest on 2 Aug 2013
Donavon Frankenreiter at Paradiso, Amsterdam on 3 Aug 2013
Monster Magnet at 013, Tilburg on 3 Aug 2013
Suuns at Rotown, Rotterdam on 3 Aug 2013
I don't know any of these bands, except some by name. I would definitely had chosen to go to Woven Hand if they weren't playing the support slot.
