Underfloor at the Viper

Published on April 14, 2013 9:14 PM | Comments


Underfloor is a rock band from Florence - I saw them at "Nottarno" in 2011 (an event which I think has been shelved going forward at this point). They were really good - very catchy songs, good singing, and some solid guitar work - if you like modern rock this would be a cool show to check out.

Wednesday night at 9:30 PM, Allison Crowe at Teatro del Sale
Via dei Macci 111r, 50122 Firenze

It's been two years since Canadian singer-songwriter Allison Crowe made her first concert visit to Teatro del Sale. During this time, the passionate vocalist-pianist, who draws comparisons from Joni Mitchell to Aretha Franklin and more unique artists, has focused on theatre, film and dance projects. She has a part in an upcoming movie, (yet-to-be-named), while her other creative activities have already brought acclaim in her homeland. This past Summer she's Music Director of a hit play in Atlantic Canada, and, before and after her October 2012 European concert dates, Crowe performs onstage with Canada's prestigious Royal Winnipeg Ballet - singing and playing Leonard Cohen songs. She returns now with delight to Firenze for a special night of music - rock, folk, jazz and soul - "una voce che unisce generi e generazioni".

For some reason everything online just says "Parco delle Cascine" but from the address they give above it must be the Ippodromo delle Mulina (which is the smaller of the two in the park:

Madonna in Firenze

Here is the video Madonna shot in Florence in June. You can see she walks out of the St. Regis in Piazza Ognissanti, and then she drives across the Ponte alla Carraia, near the US consulate and Porta al Prato, and somewhere out in the countryside:

I can't believe this - RADIOHEAD in the Cascine - July 1, 2012. Seems to be sold out already, but there must be tickets somewhere...

New CD available from Ken Mercer

Published on December 13, 2010 10:17 PM | Comments

Ken Mercer is a good friend of ours, and also a longstanding performer in Florence who has been seen by countless thousands of people over the last 10 plus years. You (the Florence resident or visitor) know him as the guy singing outside the Uffizi most nights, with his spot on James Taylor and Simon and Garfunkel renditions (plus a sprinkling of his original tunes and other songs from the 60s to today). He just released a new CD of covers, which you can find on his website.

Leonard Cohen in Florence

Leonard_cohenThe legendary and seemingly ageless Leonard Cohen will be in Florence on September 1, open air, in Piazza Santa Croce. Sounds too cool to miss - except for the fact that the cheapest tickets are €46! I still want to go, just not sure if we will be in town on that date.
