On the 26th of June, multiple layers of instruments and voices harmonized at La Mansarda’s 4th gig and drained the sound of heavy rain hitting the windows. MVP, this month’s venue, offered clear acoustics and comfortable seating on cosy chairs, completing the Irish pub experience.
The performing acts were a mix of bands, singer-songwriters and poets. There were 3-piece acts, 5-piece acts and solo acts performing. We heard the contrabass, the melodica, a drum machine, actual drums, key-boards, all kinds of guitars, the kazoo. Think of the most obscure instrument, it was probably played that night. Hopefully, this transports the musical and cultural diversity in style that we were lucky enough to witness on a summer Sunday.
As usual, the audience was free to pay tribute to the performing acts with a small donation. All proceeds were split between the artists and the humanitarian non-profit organization PIC. Additionally, the dedicated fan crowd of La Mansarda can also purchase t-shirts featuring the collective’s logo. You’ll be looking pretty good in this T while making sure the gigs can go on. And the gigs must always go on.
