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.

Moddi Concert at Papiersaal, Zürich on WE 31.03.2021

Moddi

WE 31.03.2021
Papiersaal, Zürich
Concert

Moddi is the stage name for Pal Moddi Knutsen, a progressive folk musician from Norway. Inspired equally by idiosyncratic freak-folk and urgent political protest, Moddi delivered his debut Floriography in 2010 and it garnered strong enough reviews to gain him attention in the U.K. Over the next few years, he worked steadily and built a cult following, which crested with the 2016 release of Unsongs, a collection of 12 songs that were banned from 12 different countries.

Born on February 18, 1987 in Senja, Norway, Knutsen started playing music as a child, even appearing on a local radio station singing a sea shanty when he was five. By the age of 18, he'd adopted Moddi as his stage name and decided to pursue a professional musical career. He made a self-released EP called Random Skywriting, which wound up reaching the nation via Norwegian radio. Floriography, his full-length debut, arrived in February 2010 and debuted in the Norwegian Top 10. Three years later, he put out his second album, Set the House on Fire, which was followed months later by Kæm Va Du? an album sung entirely in Norwegian; it won the Norwegian Spellemannprisen Award for Folk Album of the Year.

Throughout his career, Moddi has made a point of working on political and environmental issues -- he was a member of Young Friends of the Earth and the Socialist Youth; he canceled concerts in Israel to protest the expansion of settlements in the West Bank, for instance -- and that culminated in the 2016 release of Unsongs, an album comprising songs that had been banned throughout the world.
