Bergenfest 2015: Grace Jones Photo Special
Grace Jones played at Bergenfest last Thursday, it was a fine concert and she impressed us with her visual sense and theatrical show. Not bad for a 67-year-old artist. She is sure in her craft and has a commanding presence. It was not the best concert musically but it was the most exciting photographic event.
All pictures taken by me (Hallgeir) feel free to share, and if you use any of the pics, please post credits and a link back to alldylan.com.
Alldylan reporting from Bergenfest 2015 – Day 3
The Levellers are an English rock band, founded in 1988 and based in Brighton, England. They infuse their punk-like music with folksy elements.
Levellers was the most fun on the third day at Bergenfest. We were recommended this concert by some friends that are devoted Levellers fans, and have seen them several times. They told us that this would be a party. We hit the booze and enjoyed a roller-coaster ride of a rock’n roll show. People sang, drank, laughed and danced (well, Mark Chadwick told us to jump up and down). It was great fun! We got the impression that this was a good but not top show from The Levellers (from our experienced friends). But I will most certainly go and see them again if I get the chance.
Highlight of Bergenfest 2015 day 1 – PATTI SMITH
The dark poet & brilliant musician Patti Smith returned to Bergenfest after 3 years. Last concert on June 23, 2012 – was wonderful. Strong and vivid memories can sometimes be your enemy when trying to be present and open minded. Stakes were high, my mind was boiling.. I knew the setlist would be the “Horses” (album) songs, a couple of old greats and “My Generation” (last on “Horses”) last. But how would she perform the “Horses” material, some of the songs rarely performed live ? Excited & nervous.. and a bit juiced up on smooth bourbon (mandatory).
