Information des Veranstalters:
Nach reiflicher Überlegung haben wir als Veranstalter (Weekender GmbH & CoKG) beschlossen das Konzert von José González am 12.11. von der Music Hall in den Hafen Innsbruck - große Halle (Dock) zu verlegen. Nachdem uns das Wanda Konzert (30.10.) in der Music Hall am Tag der Veranstaltung behördlich untersagt wurde, waren wir zu diesem Schritt gezwungen, um sicherzustellen, dass das José González Konzert nicht abgesagt werden muss.
Karten behalten ihre Gültigkeit, der zeitliche Ablauf bleibt der gleiche.


It’s the quiet ones we should watch, they always say. Which is particularly astute advice right now, when loud, constant self-declaration and saturated “brand” visibility have become the norm. But above the babble and brightness, some voices will always speak quiet volumes -– with calm eloquence and the kind of certitude that comes from valuing the playing out, not just the prize. Sweden’s José González is just such a voice. He first charmed his way into the UK’s earshot via the murmurous and elegant, classically finger-picked folk pop of his 2005 album, Veneer, which has
since sold over a staggering 430, 000 copies in UK alone. Two years later came In Our Nature, a further exploration of José’s influences (Argentinian Folklore, the ’60s US folk tradition and the British pastoral folk-pop style of the same era), on which he resisted the temptation to beef up his alluringly introvert aesthetic. The albums made the UK Top 10 and Top 20 respectively. It may be seven years since he released a
solo record, but José has been anything but idle in that time. He’s delivered two albums with the band Junip, his more fulsome, electronic-edged, pop project and has toured with both the Berlin/Göteborg String Theory orchestra (in 2011), coperforming 11 reworking’s of his songs, Sidi Touré and played with Malian desert blues troupe Tinariwen (both in 2012). In 2013, Hollywood came calling when Ben Stiller commissioned José to work with Theodore Shapiro on the soundtrack to his remake of ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ and most recently, he’s contributed his
version of ‘This is How We Walk On the Moon’ to the Red Hot charity compilation honouring Arthur Russell. Community and collaboration are obviously satisfying in their own ways, but now José is again stepping centre stage solo, with Vestiges & Claws. Conceived as the natural third part in an acoustic trilogy, Vestiges & Claws is a(nother) hushed and delicate solo set that forefronts the artist and
guitarist’s compellingly intimate vocal style and intricate playing technique, but it’s often strikingly rhythmic in nature and cohere’s perfectly, with hand claps and taps on the body of his instrument underlining the songs’ mantric rise-and-fall pattern, while elsewhere, over-dubbed guitar parts and multi-tracked vocal harmonies entwine to sweetly immersive effect. The title refers to both cultural practices and biological features that survive despite having lost their original function, and to currently useful tools, ie the “claws” of modern life.
