Thanks to one and all who came out early on Sunday to check us out, opening for the great Edgar Winter and his band! It was a pleasure and an honor – and we hope y’all enjoyed it just as much as we did.
Here’s a take on a song he played late in the show: Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo. Originally recorded by Rick Derringer, and brother Johnny Winter, but also on the great Edgar Winter album Roadwork. Here’s us and Conny Bloom doin’ it earlier this fall, at The Tivoli, Helsingborg!
Stay tuned for forthcoming gigs. The gig this weekend was actually our 50th!
Triffid & Danger Concerts present two shows with The Edgar Winter Band in Sweden this fall, and we’re thrilled to open the show at Debaser Medis in Stockholm on Sunday, November 15th!
Winter made his debut in 1970 and has since released mega-sellers They Only Come Out At Night and Jasmine Nightdreams. In 1973, Edgar had a Billboard #1 with the million-selling instrumental classic Frankenstein. His latest album, Rebel Road, was released in 2008.
Sincere thanks to all involved for this past weekend’s two great shows at The Tivoli, Helsingborg and Backstage Rockbar, Trollhättan! A very special thanks to our special guest Conny Bloom, of course, Kattis for driving, Håkan and Bill (the Snibb family) for battery and air maraccas, to Black Belt for the backline and great show, Putte Rokk, Hasse and everyone at Tivoli, Fredrik and everyone at Backstage.
Thanks also to photographer Poul Martin Nielsen for the great photos, incl. the one above. Check out the rest at the PHOTOS page!
Next up: Stampen, Thursday the 22nd of October. We’ll be starting a bit earlier, around 20:00, playing two sets. It’s 50 SEK to get in, great food downstairs, then the party also continues for those who are in a heavy rock mood (it’s Heavy Thursday, after all).
We’ve done it a few times before: invited our friend and Strat wizard Conny Bloom as a guest to our gigs in and around Stockholm. Now it’s ready to take this combo on the road – let’s call it PS4 for short, the next-gen version of the band! Conny is going on tour with the Electric Boys in the UK and rest of Europe later in the fall, so we’re happy to find a weekend when we could all do this!
So, it’s The Tivoli in Helsingborg way down south on Friday the 2nd of October (along with the great Black Belt), and then westside, in Trollhättan at Backstage Rockbar on Saturday the 3rd of October.
