Pleasure to hear & enjoy the New
Pratertöne at Superbude Wien Prater, Austria 20230504
May 4th – Star Wars Day, like May 8th is Motörhead Day and June 6th International Day of Slayer, this year marks an extraordinary album presale promo party too. While Yunger plays far away at Saumarkt, Great Rift supports at Arena and Junipa Gold at B72, we head to the Prater.
But not the Bohemian one like two years before, but the Wurstelprater. On the way from Praterstern towards the WU, the Superbude is situated. In the hotel, live podcasts, open knitting and reading events take place like the Boogie Club family disco and Fiesta Forever hosted Dote. In the foyer between cosy couches and reception, RUHMER celebrates the live premiere of his new songs with many specials, including a RUHMER drink.
The Ink Music (who celebrated label night the day before) alumni gives away hand painted tapes with the whole album on it already for the first ten lucky guests who preorder the record. „Cherryland“ is the name, that can be read on the self-made videos on the TV screens at the back of the stage. This love for detail and the following live dedication are reason enough for visitors to travel to the capital and make a short trip out of it.
On rank three in the set of mostly new songs, the single „B&W“ hits in, for which Niki Texler shot the music video. He is responsible for the shooting of the live video this night as well for the song „Lunchtime“. Before the band plays „Heatwave“, „To The Wild“ and the title track of „Cherryland“. „Universe“, they perform unplugged within the audience, followed by the final „Kill Me Now“ and „Penlove“.
Between the great tunes, RUHMER tells that old shoes like his sometimes open and about feeling like a passenger in one’s own life. But mainly he tells about how happy he is and that the actual album release show will take place at B72 on September 23rd.
