The Skambankt concert in Trondheim in March was my first concert that was cancelled because of Corona – so it made perfect sense that Skambankt playing in Trondheim would also be my first concert after … (Oh well, who am I kidding, there is no “after” – but you know what I mean =;-) )

They were playing at a food court as part of a brewery festival, it was a seated concert, and the show was streamed to loads of other breweries so there weren’t too many people gathered in one place. And of course, it felt kinda weird – just sitting down at a concert is strange, and only parts of the audience were there for the concert instead of the beer. But still: it was a concert, and it was awesome! =:-D

We didn’t get the full band, but the Trio version (because of distancing rules and a stage that was too small for five – yeah sure …), but that works well for the unplugged show. And it meant that Terje had to take over the bass drum and tambourine in addition to the guitar, vocals, and harmonica – and extra challenges always make for a good show, right? Just putting on the foot tambourine so that it actually stayed on, and of course complaining about how uncool and clumsy that looks, made for five minutes of quality entertainment … *lol*

Since it was a brewery festival, Skambankt were served different beers and ciders throughout the concert, which of course lead to some breaks and talking in between songs. Which is something I love, since it’s always fun! Terje was quite concerned though if we actually understood what they were saying, since jærsk and trøndersk can be a bit mutually intelligible. =;-) That’s also why later on, we had to switch over to jærsk, since “Kjem snart heim” just doesn’t have the same ring to it …

Overall, it was a typical sit-down concert of course, with a quiet-ish audience listening to what was happening on stage. But there were a few songs where the audience got really involved. The first one was “Sånne som deg”, with constant clapping throughout the song. And when the main set was finished (and everyone got up for standing ovations, which made the band feel like they’re “in a theater” *g*), we got “Kommer snart hjem” as encore. Without accordion this time, which everyone was of course reeeeeeeaaally sad about, but with a lot of clapping and sing-a-long. A perfect conclusion for the concert!
