Wild Palms

A few days before Christmas – while Europe is completely snowed in – London-based Wild Palms have a show on in Vienna. After struggling with some technical problems at the soundcheck and some waiting around (“Sorry guys, this was the longest soundcheck we ever had!”), the five English lads are ready for an offstage performance in a smallish bar next to the venue Badeschiff at the Danube Canal. There is not much diversion in this bare setting – except some blinking fairy lights at the glass front -, so it is all left to Wild Palms to create ambience with their music. And their performance of “Not Wing Clippers” and “To The Lighthouse” turns out superb! While the city is muted by snow, the small spot resounds to the fullest. However, it turns out the next day that Wild Palms’ flight back to London is cancelled due to the heavy snowfalls. They still made it home for Christmas though.
