Special info: CONCERTS & EVENTS in the times of the Corona Crisis

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.

Sam Himself Concert at Dalí's Bar, Zurich on MO 09.11.2020

Sam Himself

MO 09.11.2020
Dalí's Bar, Zurich

Originally from Basel, Switzerland, Sam Himself made his way to New York City in the early 2010s. Various bands, collaborations and other musical projects followed before Sam released his first solo-EP, "Songs In D", as Sam Himself in March 2017. The release marked the beginning of Sam’s ongoing creative partnership with mixer and producer Daniel Schlett (The War on Drugs; Amen Dunes; DIIV) at Strange Weather Studio in Brooklyn, as well as New York greats Josh Werner (bass – Iggy Pop; CocoRosie; Bill Laswell) and Parker Kindred (drums – Jeff Buckley; Elliott Smith; ANOHNI).

Follow-up EP "Nobody" (April 2018) raised Sam’s profile on both sides of the Atlantic with an Official Showcase at SXSW, national radio airplay and showcases, and co-signs from luminaries such as producer Danger Mouse.

Sam’s latest EP, "Slow Drugs" from May 2020, hot on the heels of its eponymous lead single and the artist’s very own take on Bruce Springsteen’s "Dancing In the Dark", earned Sam the prestigious award of "Best Talent" by the Swiss National Broadcasting Service SRF3 the following month.
