Toro Y Moi @ Lido: Live Review

By: Catalina Campos

At the end of March, Toro Y Moi performed live at Berlin’s Lido venue to a highly enthusiastic, not to mention sold-out, international crowd, promoting their latest album, “What For?”. I have been listening to Toro Y Moi since first introduced to his album, “Anything In Return,” released back in 2013 by Carpark Records, an album that suits my taste of a modernized, soft R&B and chill dance music mixed in with eloquent lyrics. Dubbed, “The Godfather of Chillwave” by The Rolling Stones, Toro Y Moi has been fostering attention and gaining a wide array of listeners, especially after the album’s song, “Harm In Change,” was even featured on a popular Marc Jacob’s playlist. Although the opportunity passed me to see the band perform live in my hometown of Houston, Texas, the concert in Lido surpassed my expectations and proved that their style and craft will continue to positively evolve.

Garilla by André Kirchner

Demonstrate with rainbow flags and rose-colored glasses: dress up and march. Homosexual protest loses credibility when it’s more about exhibition skating rather than political messages. The CSD degenerates to a party mile – a celebration of clichés.
The photographs on the slide film by André Kirchner are showing the “enough is enough” demonstration in Berlin 2013 marinated for 2 weeks in (homophobic) Barilla Fusilli with Bolognese. Afterwards the analogue film was developed. The noodle dish eats its way through the protesting crowd. What remains is a candy aesthetic that disguises what has been struggled for same-sex love.
