In this idyllic and calm square setting with its burbling fountain and twittering birds, it is hard to imagine that the close-by Open Air St. Gallen is already in full swing. However, with their charming session on the day before their rocking festival gig The Animen show how you can profit from both. The casually cool band from Geneva kick off with the catchy “My Pretty Ballerina”, followed by the rousing “The Road Taken”. Actually, singer Theo Wyser already had us at the first ukulele chords (not to mention his impressive vocals). After the mind-blowing session with this band from French-speaking Switzerland we can only shout “Encore!”.
