Special info: CONCERTS & EVENTS in the times of the Corona Crisis
DEAR MUSIC & CONCERT FANS

We are glad that, after the last months, during which most cultural events had to be cancelled or postponed as a result of the measures taken by the Swiss Federal Council in order to restrict the spreading of the coronavirus, live concerts are slowly coming back into our lives.

However, despite the official decision to allow events with above 1’000 visitors again as of October 2020, artists and concert organisers still have to deal with constantly changing and regionally differing measures – ranging from new limitations in the canton of Zurich, via registering-apps to mandatory mask-wearing or distancing rules in other places.

Therefore, we advise you to always check the official information of each event-location directly to inform yourself about the most accurate status and regulation of the concert you want to attend. Additionally, we would like to encourage every music-fan to use the Swiss Covid App, as we strongly believe that the more people act responsibly and observe the health-recommendations, the sooner we will succeed as a community to make attending social events secure again.

In the meantime, we are trying to keep you updated as good as possible about any changes in the corresponding artist & show information pages as well as via our social media channels.

Stay healthy, follow the recommended hygiene procedures and don’t lose your love for music!
Thank you, your team at Just Because.

Alberta Cross

Pop, Rock

With his third album, the self-titled Alberta Cross, the band’s mastermind and sole official member, Petter Ericson Stakee, is asking us to slow down. He’s asking us to keep by his side, for the length of an album, to join him on the journey he’s made. We didn’t have to ask for these things just a few years ago, it was built into our nature. We listened to full albums. We had the time to stop and give music some of the attention it took to create it. Things have changed.

“There’s so much information everywhere all the time,” says Stakee. “A normal person ODs on information. If music is information, it feels like no one knows what’s good or bad anymore. Real music fans want to hear really good records and close themselves in for that journey of a full album. People need a journey sometimes.”

Alberta Cross is that journey. In just under an hour, it carries you far from its point of departure—the sparse, melodic minute-and-a-half opener “You’ll Be Fine”—through twists and turns, onward toward previously unknown territory, even to Stakee. The song comes and goes—a welcome hand reached out as a guide. On it, Stakee sings, “You don’t need any trouble/You just need to be found” as if he’s speaking directly to you, readying us all for what follows. Alberta Cross bleeds with every single piece of inspiration Stakee could fit inside of it. In fact, when speaking with Stakee, all variations of the word “inspire” surface during conversation. Everything for him is inspiration.
