What a night, what a night, what a beautiful night! Thank you for being so numerous, thank you for your overwhelming comments, it felt just as magical to us too! And yes, we do want it to happen again just as bad, stay tuned and we’ll figure something out! We are so fortunate to be able to do these things, and it’s all thanks to our wonderful team – Noora, Ilari, Saara, Roy, Luca, Martiina, Vera, Alisa, Juha, and all the people who have helped us is mysterious little and big ways – and YOU.
And YES we are making a new album and YES all the new songs you heard at Savoy are going to be on it. One word: Fall. In the meantime, we’re switching to summer mode – see our upcoming concerts, there are more being added every week! And once again thank you all, what amazing sweethearts you are!
Your loving and devoted
– Laura & Jere
The Finnish flyer for our premiere at Savoy-teatteri in May.
Short and sweet, here’s what: We’re making a show! It’s premiering in May at the Savoy Theater in Helsinki! It’s going to have an entr’acte! It’s called KAMMERKABARETT!
It’s going to be romantic, and funny, and sad, and slightly surreal, and beautiful. We’re getting a trapeze, and veils, and hats and stop-motion videos onstage, and it’s all magical and fun and challenging and serious work. There are some new faces doing new things – like Noora Palotie, our Muse and my long-lost sister (that’s her up there in the hoop), her sweetheart Roy Boswell who’s in charge of technical affairs I understand very little about, his friend Luca Sirviö who designs the lighting, and Vera Schneider who has already measured the entire band for some lovely gowns and vested handsomeness.
We could not be more excited. Me and Jere are constantly at work – bouncing ideas off one another and everyone around us. For my part, I’m starting to worry: Am I going to have any friends at the end of Spring? Everytime I see anyone, all my news are related to the promo video we’re planning to make, the technical difficulties our video art is facing, and how happy I am about my new KAMMERKABARETT family. I thought album making was immersive, but this is a whole new deep.
Anyway, we’re soon posting pictures of our pre-production, everyone in the Helsinki area come and see our premiere at Savoy-teatteri on the 21st of May! You can buy tickets here at Lippupalvelu.
Oh, and by the way: We have been increasingly active on Twitter and Instagram lately (I finally updated my iPhone), go follow us at the links!
Here is a video posted on Youtube by the lovely Sylvia Kasprzak from our April pop-up show at 12 Grad, Berlin’s prettiest Steampunk bar! We had such a lovely time there, and it shows.
Berlin was so good to us we cannot wait to return to play at Aphitheater im Monbijoupark, a lovely wooden venue in the heart of the city, on 19th August! Our upcoming concert there has rekindled my dangerous obsession with amphitheatres (I used to study classical Greek,you know), and it may not be long before you start seeing the results here and on our Facebook. Not telling yet!
Here’s our new concert poster though, which combines Juha’s Bonnie & Clyde portrait with Jere’s Art Nouveau design:
Enjoy the sun, sweethearts, we intend to! Plenty of time for brooding in the winter, now’s the time for sea, sun and shandy.
