Special info:

Due to the measures taken by the Swiss Federal Council in order to restrict the spreading of the corona virus that came into effect on 27th February 2020 and are ongoing, currently any kind of events are banned and concert locations ordered to close until June 8th 2020, while events with more than 1'000 attendees are not allowed to take place until 31. August 2020.

This means that all concerts during this time period cannot take place as previously planned. We are working hard on confirming replacement-dates for all shows, so you can still enjoy your favourite artists, only on another day. We are keeping you updated about each postponed show date individually in the corresponding artist & show information pages as well as via our social media channels. Please refer to these for the accurate status on the concert you wanted to attend.

Stay healthy, follow the recommended hygiene procedures and don’t lose your love for music!

Thank you, your team at Just Because.

In days like these, dominated by dark clouds of marginalisation and isolationism, an artist like Christian Kjellvander is absolutely critical to our spiritual salvation. The Swedish singer-songwriter embraces the foreign, the unknown and seeks out the most profound sense of humanity. Take the title of his ninth album “WILD HXMANS”: something is different, disconcertingly so. Christian Kjellvander slips us an X for a U. He forces us to think, sets our senses on edge. We cast our vote with an X, but we also use it to blot out a mistake. “Cross it out and forget about it – if this is how people treat each other, then we have a problem”, Christian Kjellvander suggests.

Through seven raw, compelling songs between folk, blues, Americana and free jazz, the 42-yearold speaks to us of farewells and departures, of escape and the sensation of arriving in a new world. In doing so, he crafts a sound which breathes peacefully, pulsating as he surges headlong from intimacy into incredibly dynamic, deep, oppressive darkness. At times it seems as if his music disappears, only to resurface with a flash moments later, shimmering transparently.

Christian Kjellvander is an emphatic vagabond, a daydreaming desperado. On “Strangers In Northeim” he ushers something new and untamed into a perfect little town. “Faux Guernica” is based on a road trip through the Basque country with his youngest son.
