"Independence Night": long live rock n 'roll

December 12 2006

Traditionally, on December 6 the entire Finland celebrates independence. But Moscow also supported our northern neighbors and decided to celebrate "Independence Night" on December 10.

"Independence Night" was held for the fourth time. This year the festival has been chosen the new concert hall - club IKRA (before this act took place in B2). Small but cozy, this club is the best came to the festival. The band plays on two floors, and in between their gigs on the screen shows the Finnish movies and cartoons. In addition, lay everywhere, and hung about favorite comics of all Finns pig Wagner (true, these comics have lost some humor after a Russian translation).

The first in the evening were Poets of the Fall, recently received the award for best Finnish MTV Group. But before you guys came on stage, his solemn speech was Finland's Ambassador to Russia Harry Helenius, ending with the words "long live rock n 'roll.

It should be noted that the sound of Poets of the Fall on the record and live - they are completely different things. From the first song («Locking Up the Sun») Musicians Hall of infected mad and kept in this state until the end. People jumped and waved their arms, sang along.

While on the third floor were playing "Autumn Poets", the second, in a small hall, began the presentation of another group - Risto. At first the spectators crowded at some distance from the scene, but then people no longer shy and everyone was seated on the floor. Music Risto quite diverse - sounded as lyrical compositions, and literally mad punk. But the performance of the main ekperimentatorov was yet to come.

After the demonstration, a very nice and mad plasticine cartoon, the essence of which we never managed to see on the stage began to prepare the statement made by the band Circle. During their concert could not hear the music in one particular style, but in a completely different (punk rock, heavy metal and others). Moreover, the present ad libitum going on at them, not only in music but also on the scene.

Meanwhile, in a small hall with his calm and lyrical folk, group Kiila was the complete opposite. There was a even a feeling that actually we're not in Russia, but somewhere in a small club of a small Finnish town lost in the woods or on the street, not a plus 5, and the blizzard sweeps and a cloud of light between the pieces of the star.

After listening to Kiila, we again went to the third floor. It has already started his speech accordionist Kimmo Pohjonen. His musical style is difficult to describe in words, but one thing is for sure - is rarely seen. Some call it noise, someone will say that this folk - opinions vary. The main thing is that music is really very interesting and original. The ongoing game with voice and sound, facial expressions and gestures - all this in some special way touched the hearts of every listener.

Final presentation evening was held in a small hall. It was rock and roll jam session musicians Circle and Aavikko. Here could be found and others have already played their sets, and musicians.Along with the usual audience cheerfully dancing guys from Kiila, and near the bar with the fans to communicate only that descended from the stage Kimmo Pohjonen.

A couple of hours after the official completion of the "Night of Independence" at the club heard the clinking of beer mugs and laughter. It was rare for its warm atmosphere of a holiday club, so the next one, already the fifth in a row the Russian-Finnish night, we wait eagerly in anticipation of new surprises.
