This month brought many new things, one of them is a new club at Langstrasse (yes, that itself must get old one day) named Gonzo. In essence this is the antipode to all else where the sound systems sole purpose seems to be blasting out electronic music. Now, don’t get me wrong, if anything the authors of this blog do love electronic music to bits, but diversity is always welcome. So, Gonzo is all about guitars.
When roaming about this dark cellar, the first thing noticed is the charming interior design: part disco, part 80es nudie magazine. Yes… Langstrasse, you know? Anyway, on this particular evening, besides one lame fake Elvis, the guitars stayed put, but even better it was all the way soul. Motown baby! Doesn’t get any better than good old soul. Of course this is new, all hip folk, Beth Ditto lookalikes and some ill-advised Hip-Hop fans would gather and make this a memorable night. Hope this survives the summer!
