On Christmas Eve, Rock n’Roll comes back down to Earth to warm the hearts of the lonely. With the streets empty and spirits dominated by mixed feelings (relief, peace, depression, melancholy, boredom), there is nothing like the strumming of the guitar sound and the menace of a voice woven into the images of deep America. Fanciful music to release from fantasy.
On the verge of releasing a new album in 2023, the host is once again The Legendary Tigerman, in a return to their origins as a one-man band. It’s a rare case, this one. One man, with his music, with no fuss, only the serene conviction that it will suffice for the success of the call. Now, in the tiger-man’s repertoire there is no lack of songs that have exactly the capacity to gather others around him. And most importantly, especially on this night, they don’t impose themselves on those who hear them. They let themselves be or accommodate themselves to the emotions of those who arrive. Don’t think that they cure, that they are some kind of leniency. The Legendary Tigerman doesn’t bring a message of harmony or peace. There will be no shortage of turbulence and turmoil on this night.
Rock and roll was made for loving, yes, but also for dancing. What can one do to the sound of Bad Luck Rhythm N’Blues Machine but dance? A liberating communion for the following days. That’s how this concert will be, where everyone will be a boy and a king. JM
