3-Majówka 2015, Wrocław, Day 1

21:58

Majówka in polish actually means a small trip outside the city to relax and chill before going back to old routine. It can also refer to many big events which are usually organised between 1st (Labour Day) and 3rd (Constitution Day) of May. And because I've went to such event, I actually didn't chill at all, cause I've went to 3-Majówka in Wrocław. I don't mean I didn't enjoy it, rather like I've probably forgot how exhausting the festivals are ;)

And also - link to part 2 can be found at the bottom of the entry. Anyhow, let's get down to the business.

Issel

A young, fresh band from Wrocław with a charismatic frontlady, Ula. They gathered quite a crowd, but as I found later out, most of the crowd were there for following band, which was...

Coma

... yyyyeah. Coma is a polish alternative rock band, extremely popular. I never really understood the whole hype around these peeps (I found them more pretensious than deep, sorry), but it seems the crowd had a good time. For me it was the first and the last concert of Coma, cause I ain't going to see them for sure in future. One was more than enough.

Fisz Emade

I'm not a biggest fan of hip hop alternative mix, but watching Fisz onstage was nice contrast to predecessors. Something mellow once at a time is always nice.

Luxtorpeda

I'm not actually a fan of Luxtorpeda, but I gotta admire their energy on stage and proximity with their fans. Guys stood patiently for more than an hour, while people were taking pictures with them, signing cds etc. Not that many bands do so those days.

Domowe Melodie
Lit. "Home melodies" are this really, for a lack of better word, freaking adorable lo-fi, acoustic band with lots of delightfully quirky lyrics. And yes, they also wear pyjamas' on stage. When one of my friend saw their pictures, she said that the only thing missing is a kettle with tea and plate of cookies. Seriously, atmosphere was that cozy :D They also this unique quality that makes you see how happy they are to be on stage. You don't often feel that kind of vibe.

Illusion
Illustion is kind of legendary polish rock band from the 90s. At the time when I was listening to all 90s olish heavier bands I was more Acid Drinkers oriented, Illusion has the same feel to it. Tough thing.

Mela Koteluk

So few pictures, cause capturing the frontlady, Mela, was a game of russian rullette. Most of polish performers are allergic to stage lights, but Miss Koteluk is a prime example of lights gone wrong. Can't complain bout the music though - I will simply limit my contacts with this vocalist to listening to her music on Spotify.

Pidżama Porno

Pidżama is legendary polish punk rock/ska band. They actually gathered the biggest audience of the day so far and no wonder - even though I'm not into punk rock anymore, they are hell of a great thing to listen to anyway.

Emir Kusturica & The No Smoking Orchestra

In the retrospective, I can say that it was the best gig of 3-Majówka, case closed, nothing will top it anyway. That's an act you just have to see, cause it is hard to explain something, when you cannot experience the atmosphere. It should just suffice that balkan folk made rock the whole Centennial Hall like some heavy metal bands would never do. Watch and learn metal bands, watch and learn!

Karolina Czarnecka

Karolina is a polish vocalist/actor whom I recognise only from performance on The Stage Songs Review which was interpretation of The Tiger Lillies - Heroin and Cocain song (I actually like Karolina's version more). My bad, I must say. She is much fun to watch and listen to and she clearly enjoys being on stage :)
