When I was in Missoula last summer one of my friends gave me a DVD to watch. A movie called Once.
It was a bit funny. It’s an Irish movie, but not the blockbuster type of movie. It was made in 2006 and it was released in Finland in July 2008, hence I hadn’t really heard of the movie until my friend pointed it out.
And it was a great movie. Well… Movie… More musical-ish.
Great music, great play.
And guess what…? This week, The Swell Season, the band with the guy and girl from the movie, played a couple of gigs in Helsinki and we were there. And it was great all over again.
We were a bit late with booking our tickets, the whole thing was sold out within 2 hours, so we ended up high up on the balcony on the back row. But but…. lo and behold… A couple of people didn’t show up and a guy came up to the balcony and offered us and some other people on the back row the seats from the people who hadn’t showed up. So we ended up all the way in the front, right up near the stage.
Oh, and did I mention it was great?
Wish I brought my big camera, but that would’ve probably been a bit obvious, so I had to make do with my cellphone.
But it was still great 🙂
