It seems that our special concert from last year will finally make it to the TV screens. Remember our concert in the Palace of Arts with the chamber orchestra and VoiceStation choir? Well, we are happy to announce that the footage recorded there will be featured on the Hungarian Petőfi TV on the 23rd of January, a nice Saturday evening at 22:30 Hungarian time.
Our next concert in the Palace of Arts in Budapest is a special one: we invite you for a chamber-symphonic performance with a special guest choir VoiceStation. We have a Facebook-event for the concert, so click here to join. The concert date is 21th of May, 20:00, in Bartók Béla Hall of the Palace of Arts. We are looking forward to welcome you there: if you would like to buy tickets, just click this link!
If you are in the mood to listen to a Hungarian radio station and us talking in it, click http://www.mediaklikk.hu/ and find Kossuth Rádió. From 18:00 CET+2 our lyricist-flutist-soundmaster Gábor Egervári will talk about our next symphonic endeavor. If you don’t know any Hungarian, just listen to it for the rhytm and the melody of our language. 😉
Playing symphonic concerts is not a new thing for After Crying, but each event is a special one. On the 13th of May we will play a special symphonic concert at Klauzál Ház (Budapest) accompanied by the Dohnányi Orchestra of Budafok. We are preparing orchestral versions of new songs and various other pieces from After Crying’s 27 year history.
We are returning from our silent winter period, it’s time to meet again live!
You can catch us two times this May. At first we will play a special concert at Jókai Club, in Budapest. It is special for two reasons. After many concerts on big stages, concert halls and festivals, we thought it’s time for a real club performance, and we also feel that now that our lineup is fresh and powerful, we should play a couple of songs that we haven’t play for a long time. So, we are waiting for you at the Jókai Club in Budapest on the 19th of May from 19:30. You can buy tickets at CD Pince, Stereo Shop and Jókai Club, for 1500 HUF. Also, you can sign up for the Facebook event here.
A week later you can come to Bakáts square in Budapest where we play a festival gig nearly every year. We will be on stage from 18:30.
We can’t wait to see you again!
After Crying didn’t play any Xmas-concerts this year, but there was a different method to appear in public in the holiday season. A talented young artist, Benedek Pozsgay have created a live building-light-painting experience in the center of Budapest (Vörösmarty Square, Gerbeaud-building) with a special background track from Péter Pejtsik and After Crying. Here is a video of the event:
This is not the first cooperation between the artist and the band: Benedek’s previous light-painting experience has been based on the iconic track from “Show” album: NWC (New World Coming / Új kor születik).
we had this idea for a game where everybody would win.
The goal is to share the experience with those fellows who are currently not in Budapest this month.
The game is simple:
1. Go to the Christmas Market at Vörösmarty tér one afternoon on any day until 23rd December and make a video recording of the Building Projection Mapping by Benedek Pozsgay based on music by After Crying/Peter Pejtsik. (Shows at 5, 6, 7, 8 p.m.)
2. Post the video on Youtube (please make sure to list the names “Benedek Pozsgay”, “After Crying” and “Peter Pejtsik” in the title)
3. Post the link to this video on After Crying’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/aftercrying
And here come the goodies:
Every participant who posted a video will get a free After Crying T-shirt. In addition to this a drawing will be held among all who upload by 31st December to win the band’s latest CD “Creatura”.
In order to be able to ship your goodies we kindly ask you to send an email to email@example.com with your full name and post address and an indication of the size of the T-shirt (S-XL, his or hers).
Please share this, spread the word and shoot those videos! We can’t wait to see them!
All the best,
If you are near Thessaloniki (Greece) nowadays, check out DIMITRIA Festival: its opening act will be a concert of After Crying with the Symphonic Orchestra of the Municipality of Thessaloniki. We will play this Sunday (09/16) at 7:30PM on the open air stage of Thessaloniki Concert Hall. After the concert (and after crying) we can grab some ouzo or a good Mythos beer!
