It’s an appealing name for a band, isn’t it? Four young men from Berlin performed yesterday at the semi-regular “LoFi Lounge” at Schokoladen, Ackerstraße, organized by Kitty.
(By the way: If the guys from Schokoladen could not continue with their concerts due to a more expensive hire contract, it would be a shame. Great location for new music, always!)
Around 20h, I passed by and heard the driving beat from inside, the guys did their soundcheck. I liked it and their name “Last Call For Disco”, and since it is only five minutes from my flat I went later to see their concert.
With no contract yet, they are doing it right: Playing a lot of shows, supported by a stylish website and also a profile on MySpace – all sorts of promoting the music.
It was a nice concert. Lively, with a glamorous and charismatic singer and some cool hooks, always driven by a steady disco-rock beat. A good show, everybody had a good time.
But I could tell, they haven’t been playing long together. As singer Jake told me later, it has only been a couple of months.
The songs are still quite alike and, honestly, sound pretty much like Franz Ferdinand (at least, I thought so when I took the movie..)
To sum it up: They did a really good performance and already have some cool ideas. In my opinion, there’s a lot of potential.
Good luck, guys!! Their garden barbecues are also famous..
