ACOUSTIC TUESDAY Vol. 1
After months of quiet quarantine, Vienna’s quintessential underground venue, The Chelsea, is slowly and responsibly opening its doors to music-hungry fans and stage-hungry musicians with a special new concert series happening every Tuesday night in June called ACOUSTIC TUESDAY.  
Hosted and conceptualized by the American born and Vienna based artist, Ian Fisher, each performance will have three different acts sharing their songs and stories “in the round” with all artists on stage all evening playing one solo or duo song after another.
These intimate events make the best out of the current regulations requiring audiences to be seated and to keep a safe distance from one another with only 45 people allowed into each show.
The hope behind ACOUSTIC TUESDAY is to reanimate Vienna’s live music culture, to give audiences the experiences they’ve missed, to give artists the live platform they need, and to keep independent venues, like The Chelsea, alive.  Live music must live!
 
Lineup for June 2nd:

STEPHAN STANZEL
http://www.alasac.com
The Simmeringer songwriter who puts the black air of Vienna nights into songs of longing and loss.  
 
AMELIE TOBIEN
https://www.amelietobien.com/
A wine drenched voice meets a steel string guitar. With her folk chansons, Amelie Tobien melts the two together, inviting her listeners to wander off into the night.
 
BRYAN BENNER

IAN FISHER (Host)
http://ianfishersongs.com
It's been more than a decade since Ian Fisher left his home state of Missouri and moved to Europe, forever changing his life and his music. With songs that combine an international lyrical perspective and a world-traveler’s musical influences with Americana roots, Fisher has remained on the road ever since emigrating, penning over one and a half thousand songs while also playing hundreds of concerts around Europe, North America, and Africa and performing in a handful of theater pieces in Vienna and Munich.  An independent self-starter who handles his own management, he remains inspired and busy after thirteen albums, earning praise from outlets like Rolling Stone — who described him as one of the new Americana artists you need to know and his 2017 release, Idle Hands, as "half Americana and half Abbey Road-worthy pop”.

JAMES WALKER / RANDALICEN
Doors: 20h; Show: 20.30h

London-born, Vienna-based artist JAMES WALKER started his journey into the music industry as a session musician. In the early '10s he toured with Adam Barnes, Matt Simons and Chris Ayer, and it was immediately apparent to him that this is what he would be doing forever.  
James has spent a lifetime learning how to be resilient. At 14, he spent months in the hospital battling a rare heart-lung disease. At 21, it recurred and he was given two years to live without treatment. At 27 and one pioneering operation later, James is healthy, grateful and excited for his future.
In 2017, James released his debut record English Bones. A cautious and tenderhearted record, EB went on to receive over 10m views worldwide, and reviews in The Huffington Post, BBC, and Ear to the Ground.
In the three years that followed, James took every opportunity he could, sometimes performing at over 250 shows a year. It was an intense period, and over these years James befriended and wrote with Judy Blank, Richard Walters, Matt Phillips, The Brazen Youth, and Josephine Zwaan.  
His latest single, The Conversation, is a song about breaking bad news, about the words, “we need to talk”. It was written by James and Richard Walters (Declan J Donovan, 3LAU, Alison Moyet).
Now represented by AWAL, Maximal Music, Music Table SK, James is excited for more touring in 2021.

RANDALICEN
Alice Ohenhen is a 21-year-old singer from Graz, Austria, serving you melancholic and dreamy indie tunes.

CHRISTOPH & LOLLO

Drinks: ab 18h; Konzerteinlass: 20h, Konzertbeginn: 20.30h

Seit letzten Dienstag (2.6.) wissen wir: Es geht gar nicht so schlecht bei uns, so ein Konzert im Sitzen. Untertrieben formuliert. Ian Fisher verlängert seine Acoustic Tuesdays gleich in den Juli: Jeden Dienstag spielen vier Singer/Songwriter. Demnächst sind weitere Gigs fix und es wird ein durchwegs gelungenes Programm, so viel kann ich jetzt schon versprechen. Watch Out!

Christoph & Lollo haben wir gleich als erste angerufen und sie haben prompt zugesagt. Seit heute steht der Termin. Sehr erfreulich!

Tickets gibts bei der Jugendinfo. Die freuen sich sehr über euren Besuch nach den ganzen Wochen, die nur mit Retouren und Verschiebungen zugepflastert waren.

PAULS JETS
Doors: 20h; Show: 20.30h

Ticketalarm! Reservieren war doof. Es gibt noch Karten. Ein paar fix ab 20h und dann Restkontingent ab 20.30h.

Vor einem Jahr schrieb ich das Pauls Jets uns mit ihrem Debüt-Album „Alle Songs bisher“ in einen geheimnisvollen Zaubergarten in dem alles möglich wird
entführt hätten. Auf „Highlights zum Einschlafen“ weiten die Jets diesen Kosmos nun in abenteuerlich-nonchalanter Manier aus. Wir fahren mit LKWs durch all diese Länder die es grade gibt, haben Schulter an Schulter mit Reinhold Messner Tragödien im Himalaya erfahren und tauchen ab in tiefe Ozeane während die Welt grade untergeht. Wir sind unverstandene Ritter, wir lieben die Musik und am Ende treffen wir uns erneut in einer Villa.
Musikalisch dazu ein Feuerwerk aus Spielfreude, halsbrecherischem
Eklektizismus und Liebe zu schönen Klängen.
Nachdem „Alle Songs bisher“ in ungezählten Jahresbestenlisten des
deutschsprachigen Raums von TAZ über Musikexpress bis zu was weiß ich alles
Lorbeeren einstreifte frag ich mich was dieses Wahnsinnswerk nun bewegen
wird. Paul wünschte sich einen Promo-Text ohne Superlative. Ich habe mich so gut ich konnte daran gehalten; aber ehrlichgesagt: dann müssten er, Romy und Xavier langsam mal anfangen schlechtere Alben zu produzieren. (Stefan Redelsteiner)
