Scandimaniacs poster

Remember that we saw Scandimaniacs at Gotland, which I wrote about earlier? We went to their concert in Stockholm too. 2008-08-11 to be exact.

The concert were held at Turteatern, Reflexen in Kärrtorp in the south suburbs of Stockholm, an old movie theater which hubby remember well from his childhood.

It looked exactly the same, no renovation done, nada! It’s like being thrown back in the fifties. A truly cool place with a lot of funky atmosphere.

For you that haven’t read my earlier post about the Scandimaniacs, they present themselves as the best Swedish Cabarét Duo from Paris, starring Sara Lewerth and Emil Lager.

I’ll confirm that statement and add that they are really witty, humorous, giving a lot of themselves during their performances with a lot of twinkle in their eyes! A safe card when when you wanna have a good time, but they also gives a message in their songs.

It was not so good photo environment, we were not close enough and the lighting for photography weren’t exactly the best, so the photos is a bit blurry. I’m surprised that it came out as good as they did actually!

My big camera was unfortunately out of batteries just after a couple of shots, how typical isn’t that? Always charge your batteries, yeah, I hear you…. *giggles*

What surprised me even more, was how the videos came out, that I took there. My compact camera, Canon Ixus 80IS did a fantastic job, I must say. I’m very pleased with it.

I’m pleased with myself too, because it was rather difficult to hold up my arms holding the camera (and to hold it still!) during the whole video shooting time….

I so love the ending of this one!!! (This video when uploaded to YouTube, became a bit more blurry than it is in the origin, which is a pity).

If you want so see some more of the Scandimaniacs, have a look at my Youtube Scandimaniacs video playlist with other videos of them. I have a couple more videos to upload later too.

I’ll say it again: if you have the opportunity and they comes to a place nearby you, don’t hesitate, just go there!!! You’ll have a blast with a lot of laughs.

Their tour continues in Barcelona, Spain, early October (exakt information will soon be out).

Go to their webpages to listen to more music from them or to see their gig schedule:

    i have enjoyed this video, you did a great recording. but i am confused what Ling says, why can’t person enjoy a show while recording it? I disagree with her. people do collect things they l;like and enjoy and you have preserved and shared this video to let other’s enjoy the show.

    great work!
