Is Tropical x Tweak Bird x Berlin

There wasn’t much known about the three guys from Is Tropical, before they visited Berlin to play at Comet Club on Friday the 15th. And apart from a first single it was hitherto only a deal with Kitsuné and the fact, that they keep hiding their faces with bandanas, which attracted proper attention.

But the pleasure of opening the evening was on the side of Berlin’s I’m not a Band. And the two enchanted the few people who found their way to Comet Club. Lacking of an album release as well, I’m not a Band played their set sovereignly, but not boredly. The delay of Is Tropical couldn’t confuse them, too. So they played encore by encore, collecting plus point.

The headliner of the evening then entered the stage with a big delay. Without a word of explanation to the waiting crowd but with their bandanas on, the three started their gig. The ones who didn’t pay attention to the sound-check could see the face of Is Tropical’s drummer nonetheless because his bandana got lost as fast as the whole band’s enthusiasm.

One hour later and at a different venue Tweak Bird was supposed to be more thrilling. All those who brought along their earmuffs to the sold out West Germany were well-advised to do so, since the powerful drums and the hardcore guitars sounds got some long-grown hair to swing. Though, the good set lost some of its substance and creativity towards the end, because the Bird brothers kept maltreating the four very same chords over and over again.
