Die Soli Molotow Geistershow
Einlass: nie | Beginn: nie | VVK: 10€/25€/50€/100€ | TICKETSmiley face

In dieser schweren Zeit präsentiert das Molotow die weltweit erste Geistershow!
Nachdem in den letzten Wochen das System „Geisterspiele“ die Runde machte und sich weder als ansehnlich noch als Corona-resistent beweisen konnte, kommen wir nun mit dieser bahnbrechenden Idee daher!
Bei Geisterspielen findet die Veranstaltung bekanntlich ohne Publikum statt. Klingt erstmal nach einer guten Idee, doch das Problem ist leider, dass trotzdem noch immer echte Menschen vor Ort sind, die sich gegenseitig anstecken können…

Nicht so aber bei der Geistershow im Molotow! Neben dem fehlenden Publikum, fehlt hier nun auch das Main-Event kom-plett!
  • Kein Konzert
  • Kein Publikum
  • Keine Mitarbeiter
  • Keine Band
  • Kein Körperkontakt
  • Kein Corona!?
Sicherer geht’s nun wirklich nicht!

Jetzt aber Mal im Ernst: in den letzten Tagen fragen uns viele Menschen, wie sie uns helfen können; ob sie irgendwohin spenden können; was sie direkt tun können, dass das Molotow nicht an der Corona-Welle zu Grunde geht.
Nun, wir dachten, wir richten einen Vorverkauf für eine Veranstaltung ein, die nie stattfinden wird.

Ihr könnt ein Ticket kaufen.
Ihr könnt zwei Tickets kaufen.
Prinzipiell könnt ihr so viele Tickets kaufen, wie ihr mögt und euch leisten könnt.

Hier soll aber auch gesagt sein: fühlt euch nicht genötigt!
Wir haben euch nicht weniger lieb, wenn ihr selbst nicht genug Geld habt, um uns welches ab zugeben. Wir würden uns aber sehr freuen, wenn ihr euch an dieser Aktion beteiligen wollt und könnt und uns helft, das Molotow die nächsten Wochen (und vielleicht Monate) über Wasser zu halten!

Natürlich gilt auch weiterhin: Bleibt sauber, seid lieb zueinander und wascht euch gefälligst die Hände!

Danke für euren Support!

Dein Molotow

Within these difficult times Molotow presents the first ghost show worldwide!
After the past few weeks the idea of “ghost games” was a hot topic, however they did not really turn out to be enjoyable or Corona-resistant. Therefore, we came up with this great idea!
At ghost games, the event takes place without an audience. Sounds like a good idea for now however the problem is that there still are real people involved that could potentially infect each other…

But not at the Molotow ghost show! Not only the audience is missing, but also the main event is completely missing!
  • No concert
  • No audience
  • No employees
  • No band
  • No physical contact
  • No Corona!?
It can’t be more safe than that!

But seriously: within the past few days many people reached out to us to ask how they can help.
If there is a way to donate money, what they could do to help Molotow survive Corona.
Well, we thought we would create a pre-sale for an event that will never actually take place.

You can buy a ticket.
You can buy two tickets.
Actually, you can buy as many tickets as you like and are able to afford.

What we would like to mention is: do not feel like you are obligated to!
If you do not have enough money for yourself and are not able to support us with money, we still love you!
We are very happy about everyone who takes part in this ghost show to support Molotow and helps keeping our head above water within the next weeks – maybe even months!

Of course this is still important: stay clean, take care of each other and wash your damn hands!

Thanks for your support!

WAXAHATCHEE
präsentiert von Bedroomdisco, Testspiel.de & ByteFM
Einlass: 19:00 | VVK: 16 EUR | TICKETSmiley face
What do we hold on to from our past? What must we let go of to truly move forward? Waxahatchee's Katie Crutchfield, a lyricist who has always let her listeners know exactly where she is at a given moment, spent much of 2018 reckoning with these questions and revisiting her roots to look for answers. The result is Saint Cloud, an intimate journey through the places she's been, filled with the people she's loved.

Written immediately in the period following her decision to get sober, the album is an unflinching self-examination. From a moment of reckoning in Barcelona to a tourist trap in Tennessee to a painful confrontation on Arkadelphia Road, from a nostalgic jaunt down 7th Street in New York City to the Mississippi Gulf, Crutchfield creates a sense of place for her soul-baring tales, a longtime staple of her storytelling.

This raw, exposed narrative terrain is aided by a shift in sonic arrangements as well. While her last two records featured the kind of big guitars, well-honed noise, and battering sounds that characterized her Philadelphia scene and strongly influenced a burgeoning new class of singer-songwriters, Saint Cloud strips back those layers to create space for Crutchfield's voice and lyrics. The result is a classic Americana sound with modern touches befitting an artist who has emerged as one of the signature storytellers of her time.

From the origins of her band name—the beloved creek behind her childhood home—to scene-setting classics like "Noccalula" and "Sparks Fly," listening to Waxahatchee has always felt like being invited along on a journey with a steely-eyed navigator. On Saint Cloud, Crutchfield adds a new sense of perspective to her travels. Reflecting on this, she says, "I think all of my records are turbulent and emotional, but this one feels like it has a little dose of enlightenment. It feels a little more calm and less reckless."

Many of the narratives on Saint Cloud concern addiction and the havoc it wreaks on ourselves and our loved ones, as Crutchfield comes to a deeper understanding of love not only for those around her but for herself. This coalesces most clearly on "Fire," which she says was literally written in transit, during a drive over the Mississippi River into West Memphis, and serves as a love song to herself, a paean to moving past shame into a place of unconditional self-acceptance. Coming from a songwriter long accustomed to looking in other directions for love, it's a stirring moment when Crutchfield sings, "I take it for granted/If I could love you unconditionally/I could iron out the edges of the darkest sky."

Which is not to say that Saint Cloud lacks Crutchfield's signature poetry on matters of romantic love. Still, her personal evolution in this area is evident too, as this time around, Crutchfield examines what it really means to be with someone and how it feels to see our own patterns more clearly. On "Hell," she sings: "I hover above like a deity/But you don't worship me, you don't worship me/You strip the illusion, you did it well/I'll put you through hell."

Crutchfield also looks at what it's like to be romantically involved with another artist, someone in search of their own truth, on "The Eye": "Our feet don't ever touch the ground/Run ourselves ragged town to town/Chasing uncertainty around, a siren sound" and "We leave love behind without a tear or a long goodbye/as we wait for lightning to strike/We are enthralled by the calling of the eye." And of course, even when Crutchfield is taking a more nuanced approach to love, her ease with all- encompassing sentiments is still clear, with lines like "I give it to you all on a dime/I love you till the day I die" which sound culled from a classic torch song.

Over the course of Saint Cloud's 11 songs, which were recorded in the summer of 2019 at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, TX, and Long Pond in Stuyvesant, NY, and produced by Brad Cook (Bon Iver, Big Red Machine), Crutchfield peels back the distortion of electric guitars to create a wider sonic palette than on any previous Waxahatchee album. It is a record filled with nods to classic country (like the honky tonk ease of "Can't Do Much"), folk-inspired tones (heard in the confessional lilt of "St. Cloud"),and distinctly modern touches (like the pulsating minimalism of "Fire").

To bolster her vision, Crutchfield enlisted Bobby Colombo and Bill Lennox, both of the Detroit-based band Bonny Doon, to serve as her backing band on the record, along with Josh Kaufman (Hiss Golden Messenger, Bonny Light Horseman) on guitar and keyboards and Nick Kinsey (Kevin Morby, Elvis Perkins) on drums and percussion. Bonny Doon will also perform as Crutchfield's live band during her extensive tours planned for 2020, which include the US and Europe.

Saint Cloud marks the beginning of a journey for Crutchfield, one that sees her leaving behind past vices and the comfortable environs of her Philadelphia scene to head south in search of something new. If on her previous work Crutchfield was out in the storm, she's now firmly in the eye of it, taking stock of her past with a clear perspective and gathering the strength to carry onward.
