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.

Sons Concert at JVAL Openair, Begnins on FR 30.08.2019

Sons

JVAL Openair, Begnins
Concert

Yes. It's been quite a ride for SONS since they won the Nieuwe Lichting contest of Belgian radio station Studio Brussel in 2018. That same year, they opened the main stage of Rock Werchter, arguably one of Europe's most renowned festivals, and nailed it. Psychedelic garage punk, some called it. Whatever. The crowd went ballistic and the band was named as one of the festival's highlights.

2019 saw the release of debut album Family Dinner, produced by Reinhard Vanbergen (Das Pop) and Michael Badger-Taweel (King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard). It turned out a bona fide scorcher, bursting with maliciously grinning energy, while displaying a stunning sense of diversity at the same time. From the dark adrenaline rush of the title track to the Sturm und Drang of Ricochet, Naughty and Tube Spit to the ominous exit which is Sneaky Snake: as far as debuts go, they rarely come as exciting as this. Raving reviews all around. And rightly so.

And then there's the live thing: guitars fuzz, buzz, crash, burn, howl, whimper and roar like dangerous animals on illicit drugs. Often in the same song, which is nice. In the other corner of the ring, the bass monstertrucks itself down a winding road, assisted by a star representative of Powerhouse Drummers 'R' Us. It's a perfect backdrop for the singer, who alternates between metric vocals, Iggyish yelps and husky whispers. Meanwhile, all band members bounce off more imaginary walls than you can shake a stick at, without ever losing control of the sonic storm they're cooking up. It's a gripping display of musical aptitude, and the more shows the band put under their belt, the more impressive it becomes. This is SONS. All caps. And rightly so.
