J. Karjalainen, one of the most successful contemporary Finnish singer-songwriters was performing his folkish Lännen-Jukka -set as a string band trio (with the exceptionally talented duo of Ninni Poijärvi and Mika Kuokkanen) at Tavastia last tuesday. I could not have been more pleasantly surprised by the show; it was funny and entertaining with all the in-between-songs stories told by J. himself, well played and sung on an extremely bare stage under decent lights ;) ..

ps. It really pisses me off that even Tavastia now seems to apply general restrictions concerning all photographic equipment on _all_ their gigs. I can imagine the reasonings for the restriction but still .. fuck.
