Eläkeläiset

I've heard many stories on Eläkeläiset before from my finnish friend. That they make humppa covers, that they have this lovely game that they've started once upon a time, that they rock people's socks off on gigs... Later on I also learned that they once played in my hometown and after they totally demolished pretty much everything on the stage, the venue stopped functioning and festival never had another edition. Coincidence? I think not!



So, once I've heard that they're playing here again, I've decided to go and see them no matter what. And by gods, I wasn't disappointed, it was a BLAST! I even need to quote my own facebook status here, cause I sums up the whole show quite accurately - 'who wasn't at  Eläkeläiset last night now can be called a LLAMA!'. All joking aside, I've seen plenty of bands in my life, often younger and technically the ones which should more zestful. And... quite often youngsters were as boring as Trabant blueprint. Even though lion's share of Eläkeläiset were seated for most of the time, they managed to warm make the audience boil as no other band. I was only concerned for Onni Waris' keyboard - what is this thing made made of? I don't know, but after seeing Onni smashing it with mic stand I suppose it might be something that Nokia 3310 were built from.

This gig was also pretty special to me, because I got my hands on new camera and was finally able to test it... And it is simply flawless. It costed me nearly arm, leg and decent piece of liver, but I don't regret at all. Full frame is the thing! :)

Overall, cause I don't want to get into more technical babble - gig was awe-SOME! Whenever you get a tip that they'll be touring at your hometown, don't even think twice, just go. Even if you don't like humppa (yet, obviously), you will start loving it instantly. You have my word.

And also, here are some pictures from the concert. Enjoy!
