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.

Will Joseph Cook makes pop music in 3D. Though his melodies are instinctively catchy, it’s the poignant, questioning lyrics that linger uncomfortably under your skin. “I’m really into duality,” he says. “I’ve always liked music that sounds triumphant at the same time as sounding completely fragile. That’s what makes music emotional, when you can’t quite pinpoint what it is”. It’s this conflict that sits at the centre of Cook’s appeal — especially in his bold, satirical visuals, which he’s passionate about creating. The videos for his seemingly happy-go-lucky tunes, ‘Girls Like Me’ and ‘Sweet Dreamer’, battle between heartbreaking realities and unsettling surrealism. “I like creating a conflict between aesthetic and what is actually being said” he says — a sense that applies to both his songs and videos. “I want it to be like how you actually think. You never feel just one emotion at any time”.

Now 19 years old, Cook has already been honing this multi-dimensional approach to crafting infectious songs since he was just 14. Finding inspiration in everything from the youthful indie charms of MGMT, Vampire Weekend and Darwin Deez to the post punk art pop of Talking Heads, Orange Juice and Gang of Four.
