Mira Lu Kovacs: vocals

We start the live stream approx. 1/2 hour before the concert begins (real time, no longer available after the end of the concert). By clicking on "Go to livestream" a window will open where you can watch the concert free of charge and without any registration. However, we kindly ask you to support this project via "Pay as you wish". Thank you & welcome to the real & virtual club!

Mira Lu Kovacs (5K HD, My Ugly Clementine) and Clemens Wenger (5/8erl in Ehr'n, JazzWerkstatt Wien) devote themselves entirely to sadness. Is there anything more longing, more yearning than sad songs, in which you lie down, in which you swim and sink? Songs in which you wallow until the sadness absorbs you completely, so that it gets what it so relentlessly demands and then finally, finally lets go of you. Open the door, monster in. Monster rages, monster leaves.

In addition to some of their own compositions, the duo will perform a selection of well-known songs from pop history, from "Get Lucky" (Daft Punk) to melancholy jazz classics à la Chet Baker such as "I'm Old Fashioned" and German-language songs such as "Halt dich an deiner Liebe fest" (Rio Reiser).
