“The Best Gig I Ever Saw” is a weekly column that will see us ask a musician to chat about their favorite concert thus far. This week it’s Fynn Claus Grabke, guitarist and vocalist with heavy-hitting blues rock band The Picturebooks…
The best show we ever saw was Peaches at the Sziget Festival in Budapest Hungary. First of all, this festival is quite something! Crazy good lineup every year and super wild audience at a rad location. We played right before Peaches that night and already wondered who all these crazy people belonged to that were running around backstage all day before the show.
This naked guy with huge fake tits entered the stage and pushed Peaches around in a wheel chair because she had broken her leg and started the show with her amazing song “Fuck The Pain Away” we were hooked! Her songs are already awesome on record but next level live! Especially the light show really took it to another level! All in all it was breathtaking, great sounding, amazing looking and entertaining show that never bored ya for a second.
The Picturebooks plays with Restavrant at 8 p.m. on Saturday, January 4 at Alex’s Bar.
