Sorry, diesen Bericht gibt's nur auf Englisch...

Since living in Trondheim, I’ve been going to Steinkjerfestival every summer – they usually have a great line-up, and it’s just the right size and a nice atmosphere. And of course it doesn’t hurt that the weather is always awesome!

Well, almost always, except for this year. But then, Skambankt played in the tent anyway, so no need to worry about rain or freezing cold. What there was to worry about though: the soccer world cup and Germany playing Sweden in what could have been their last exciting match RIGHT AT THE SAME TIME as Skambankt were on stage. Argh! Terrible timing! And yes, I was a bit distracted during the concert … especially when the mobile data cut out, I desperately kept trying to reload the live score, and when it finally loaded it said “0:1”. Waaaaah! And sorry for my shocked looks in the middle of … was it Vår bør? =;-)

Anyway, the concert. =;-) I was pretty much in the front this time so it’s hard to say how it was received by the audience, but it seemed like people were into it. Clapping and singing along, and despite some slightly cryptic reactions to questions between the songs (like if every band needs a power ballad or if we like punk rock), people clearly had a good time.

The setlist was a bit suprising though, with only two songs from the new album (or actually only one, since “Balladen om deg” is a b-side). I guess it makes sense for the festivals though, to play the songs that the “casual fan” knows – and those songs are a lot of fun, not the least because everyone know them. =:-)

Here’s the setlist:

  1. Skambankt
  2. Dynasti
  3. Mantra
  4. Slukk meg (for eg brenner)
  5. Vår bør
  6. I dette huset
  7. Balladen om deg
  8. O dessverre
  9. Me sa nei
  10. Stormkast #1

What I found really interesting was how different the concert was from my first Skambankt festival show this year. While the gig at Trondheim Rocks was gigantic, this one felt so much more like a tight club show – inside (in a tent), on a smaller stage, much closer to the audience. Me likes! I don’t mind a bit more chatter between the songs, but of course that doesn’t make sense at a festival show where Skambankt get only 45 minutes. With that time, the concert felt pretty short even though it was played tightly.

But then, at the same time, it felt REALLY long, because Germany was about to lose to Sweden. =;-) So right after the concert was over, I ditched Astrid S (oh wat a sacrifice … NOT *lol*) to run back to the hotel and catch the last half hour. Including Germany’s goal in minute 95. =:-D

Great game! Oh, and the concert was pretty awesome too. *gg*
